I'd honestly never have guessed that.
64. My Desire looks good alongside my Faber Castell slide rule. No batteries required..
Should I take that as a compliment then
I'm 54. I'm so old I remember DOS, Fortran, Windows 3.1, OS/2, punchcards, 5 1/2 inch floppies, tape drives on a Commodore 64 . . . Hell I remember when a phone was a phone, not a text device!
BTW, am I the only one that didn't see Capt Kirk pull out his smart phone and text Scottty? Didn't Star Trek see the future?
I'm 41 and remember all of those except Fortran??
it was an IBM programming language used mainly in number crunching and data applications... way... way back in the early `60s. I used it on an IBM 360, a computer the size of my kitchen.
Rockin' a 26 over here
Still waiting for someone to beat my 73 years.
Hi I'm 71 and hope HTC releases 2.3 gingerbread for my Desire before I die, I like to keep in touch with my friends
Well I am 70yrs old and love the modern technology.The Desire is my Mobile and my wife has the Samsung wave 525 and she 75 years old, or is that young in her case.
I am far from the oldest at 42 but there aren't many folks I know my age who own a Rooted Desire, running Gingerbread (CM7 nightlies), I expect some here but not in the general populous. They like there phones slow and bog standard, stuff that for a lark.
I am 15 but there again i read back to front
I am 64yrs and have mastered this phone easily just because we are diminishing in youth does not say we are brain dead........LOL
I should have mentioned along with being in my 70s I'm rooted and running Leedroid 2.3b. No reason us oldsters have to run "bog standard".
Remember 5 1/2 inch floppies!!! I still have them, or is that just because I'm getting old!
wow not seen a slide rule for a long time take me back that does
I keep one under my monitor at work - if anyone asks what it is, I tell them it's my fallback.
Well, I'm 54. And a gadget freak.
Oh yeah, and my wife wants to know when I'll grow up...
I've just turned 40 and suddenly feeling young with my rooted Desire running GV1.0
I remember DOS, Fortran, 3.1 etc... these young kids forget that the PC as we know it today was invented by people who are now pensioners
Not wanting to be picky (well, OK, maybe a little) but the floppies were actually 5
yes and a good pipe and slippers and a well worn cardigan with pictures of other famous slide rule users such as
Sir Geoffrey de Havilland sir Barnes Neville Wallis and Ron Ayers Pierre Satre, with Sir Archibald Russell
great men that knew that if it went pete tong there was no need to call IT or cntl alt delte just reset the slide rule lol
For sure does not smell like a teen spirit...
...oh I'm 33
Hope your real name isn't Jesus!
54 and female
Woow I feel so young here. I'm 20 years old and love my HTC Desire.
I am living proof that is WRONG. hehe just saying
