20 Years Is A TON When It Comes To Changes (15 pics)

The Google office in 1999 at the beginning of its way to the top, vs now

This is what a 20-year-old cell phone evolution looks like:

20 years is enough time to completely change a city’s skyline...

The skyline in Moscow

 

...and to recreate a whole city itself.

The skyline in Shanghai

 

Britney Spears, the face of a whole generation, back in 1999 when she just dropped her first album vs now

We completely changed the rules and today, no one spends hours on the phone with their friends when they can just text.

And now parents have a different answer for their kid who asks, “Where did you meet?”

Our movie collections don’t need that much room anymore.

It took video games just 20 years to reach a completely new level we couldn’t even fathom before.

And famous kids we remember fondly now have kids of their own.

Teen idols are completely different now.

Nowadays, teens value personality and uniqueness rather than unattainable perfection.

 

Just recently, a cell phone with a 0.3-megapixel camera was a luxury — but now, everyone can take high-quality pictures.

The amount of data we now use rose thousands of times. You’d need 11,111 discs to cover a regular 16 GB USB flash drive.

Just 20 years ago, our flash drives were discs that could only contain 1.4 MB of data each.

 

Unfortunately, 20 years is also more than enough time for something to disappear.

The Aral Sea used to be the fourth-largest lake in the world. It started to dry up in the 1960s, and in the last 20 years, it’s almost completely disappeared.

 

BONUS: “My daughter called me a liar when I told her this was a phone.”

I read all of this while I was listening to vinyl albums I'd transferred to my BetaMax.
