Funny, literaly EVERYTHING was dirt cheap in the 80s and 90s except tech. Computer scene was super based because only autismos knew how to use them.

>>430203474CRTs are technically better than LCDs in almost every way. If you get a high def CRT it easily beats OLED panels.CRTs went out of fashion due to the bulkiness and because LCDs could perform adequately for what people wanted. But technically LCD panels have never been able to achieve the same performance of CRTs. So they are not really low-tech or bad. If HD CRT's became more mainstream CRTs would probably be more common still.

>>430203474Yes only because it was that way for everyone though

>>430203474You wouldn’t put a console television in an entertainment center. That’s a millennial mistake

>>430210551>console televisionWhat other kind is there?

>>430210363If you can't make it yourself it's not low tech

>>430210681Good argument, but the best measure of what is high tech is can you fix it yourself?I can fix a CRT TV, but modern stuff that breaks? Nope because modern TVs were made to break within five years and have ultra-fragile parts placed in such a way that unless you're a robot you can't fix it, to me, that's real high tech and real high tech is stupid.

>>430203474Once the wonder of a novelty wears off all you're left with is the addiction. There are more practical benefits and conveniences now, but I think people are less happy.

>>430203474Technology should've stopped at the end of the 19th century, quite frankly. Nothing has given the usual suspects more power than communications technology, like the talmudvision. The telegram was sufficient.

>>430205799I don’t have a tv but at home with my parents every commercial I see on tv is interracial couples. White woman with a nigger and white man with a chink

>>430211129Telegram is even worse, it lets people conspire across continents.Its gotta be carrier pigeons or nothing. carrier pigeon introduces RNG to the communication and intercept potential which requires diplomacy. Also it employs birds. The bird economy is fucked.

>>430211129Nah, man, if tech stopped at 1989, that'd be perfect. You'd have the nice comfy tech, but the worst more invasive stuff not so much because miniaturization hadn't been even close to being perfected for the tyrants until at least 2006.

>>430207717mystery word is "power"

>>430203474yes

>>430204009not true, "movies" are not reality - historical "movies" are to change history. single mothers were rare and a big deal; looked down as the losers of society.

>>430203474in some ways yesin some ways nothank you for attending my ted talk>noooo you have to play into my strawman effort to polarize people emotionally about irrelevant shit so they remain agitated 24/7 and addicted to adrenaline and anger and are easier to control with stupid endless social media bullshit while bigdata harvests information so they can imprison us all in a giant human version of a global habitrail ratrace enclosure etc. etc.

>>430210068LCDs have been trying to mimic CRTs for the past 20+ years. It has only been recently that they have competed adequately as far as contrast and response time. Resolution and panel sizes are kind of irrelevant since we could make CRTs bigger, give them high resolution, widescreen, etc. but CRTs largely failed in the market due to their bulky size.

>>430211751Zoomers would never be able to carry a 300lb TV up or down stairs to save their lives either.

>>430203474Yes. Assembling a kick-ass stereo system was a right of passage.

>>430211852I used to have a 40" rear-projection CRT TV. Could only do 720p but that thing was a beast. It wasn't too bad to carry around since you could split it up into pieces.It was big but it also had way better speakers built into it than modern TVs.

>>430211407You'd still have everyone with their TV and radios turned on non-stop, which is never a good thing. The only post-pidgeon communication tech that could be argued as a good thing was web 1.0, when the internet was anonymous and by the people, for the people.

>>430203663Wtf those TVs were dogshit, this is why movie theaters were so popular.

>>430214133>this is why movie theaters were so popular.No, zoomy. They were popular because prices weren't insane, the teens working there were clean and polite and nearly every movie was a smash hit destined to be remembered. And cable TV was super expensive until the early 90s. So if you missed Star Wars on network TV, you had to catch the re-release in a theater. Your last option would be to pay a hundred bucks for a "rental copy", so yeah, you'd get your ass to a theater.

>>430203474I lived through the end of it and it was boring as shit to me. If theres nothing on tv and your friends are far away theres literally nothing to do. Also the weather is hotter for some reason. The few bit of technology I would have destroyed if I had the chance is smartphones. Social media ruined humanities socialness.

>>430203474shit just werked

>>430203474It was pretty awful in terms of information and technology. If you wanted to entertain yourself or learn something you were limited to a few shitty books in the library or ads in the paper. Hanging out with your friends basically meant setting fire to ants or playing rpgs, not anything actually cool.The big positives was obviously fewer non-whites, low tolerance for fags and a much higher proportion of young white women.

>>430203474Virtually everything would be fixed if we banned all mobile phones and wireless internet. Anything else would be tweaking it. This would virtually eliminate social media garbage like Facebook overnight, saving the internet and greatly strangling a lot of forced culture like tranny crap. People would be forced to interact with people in real life as you would be cut off from internet and phone calls unless you were home or at work and in a designated spot like in front of a desktop computer. A significant chunk of the population wold not have access at all as they would not be able to understand or afford computers. Going lower tech than that isn't necessary unless you just have a thing from some particular retro techs for nostalgia.

>>430205799>>430206450>>430206716>>430211306Fun fact that TrumpTards ignore When Palm Beach denied Trump's repeated requests to allow Js to become official PB country club members after he bought Mar-a-Lago, Trump's lawyers mailed every board member copies of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and threatened to dox them to the press. The board finally gave in. Trump's club was literally the FIRST in Palm Beach to accept and recruit Js as members. But TrumpTards ignore this lol.

>>430210246Cell phones in 2006 are barely what they are today. Iphone isn't out for another year or so. Also, not everybody would have one like they do today, and anyone that did have one probably wasn't using it as much as we use our smartphones.

>>430214576We came up with stuff to do as kids. I miss analog TV, most, I think. I have fond memories of breaking out the old "rabbit ear" TV when we had severe weather because satellite would always go out.
