I have incredibly fond memories of my NES. It was my first games console and if I say so myself I was awesome at Duck Hunt – especially when compared to my brother who cheated and held the light gun up against the TV screen! Four generations of games consoles later and Nintendo released a game changer with the Wii, bringing motion sensitive gaming to a mass market with the wireless Wii remote.

Upon their release mobile phones were a true yuppie status symbol, reserved for the go-getters of the world to prove their status. Admittedly this status was slightly marred by the fact that using one for a long period of time was likely to result in an oversized bicep due to the massive size of the original wave of mobile phones. Thankfully technology has done what it does best and evolved to the point where we now have super slim and lightweight devices like the LG Optimus Black and the lightning fast LG Optimus 2X.
