Kids these days have got it so easy – especially when it comes to technology. They are part of the digital generation and are surrounded by technology and the internet and they are using smartphones, tablets, e-readers and computers every day.

But back in the day, if your're older than 15, then you'll probably remember a world where none of this existed, and certain things were…well a stuggle. So here's a trip down memory lane. Lets look at some of the things we used to struggle with. Once you've had a giggle at some of these, you might never take present day technology for granted ever again!
