It's easy to say technology moves fast, and it's true. As hard as it is to believe the original iPhone launched in 2007, even though it already seems like smartphones have been around a lot longer.
To really bring home how far technology can come in a short period of time, here's a reminder of what 10 popular gadgets looked like just 10 years ago. You aren't going to believe some of these.
Before the iPod nano, shuffle, or touch, there was just the iPod. It later became known as the iPod classic and, alas, Apple stopped making it last year. Here's what it looked like in 2005.
And for a real blast from the past, here's what the iPod classic looked like when it first came out in 2001.
2. Apple iBook G4
Apple latest MacBooks are thin as a supermodel, light as a feather and designed like it's from the future. However, 10 years ago the iBook G4 was the pinnacle of size, power and design.
It doesn't look very "Apple" anymore, does it?
3. Apple iMac G5
Apple's all-in-one iMac was a huge breakthrough in computer design. It was sleek, compact and meant fewer wires cluttering up the place. Today it sports huge screens and razor-thin edges. Back in 2005, it was a bit chunkier.
Still, some of the design elements in the current Mac are already present, including the stand.
4. Samsung MM-A800
In 2005, there were no smartphones, so the pinnacle of design and features was the Samsung MM-A800. It was the first phone in the U.S. to have a 2 megapixel camera!
5. Digital cameras
Point-and-shoot digital cameras are so compact now it's almost hard to use them. Of course, most people just use the one that's built into their smartphone anyway.
Back in 2005, if you wanted a good point-and-shoot, you got something like the Canon PowerShot A520 with its whopping 4 megapixel image sensor, 1.8-inch LCD screen and hefty 6.35 oz weight (to compare, an iPhone 6 is 4.55 oz and it includes two cameras that are 1.2MP and 8MP).
You can still buy one of these online for around $16.
6. Video game hardware
When it comes to video game consoles, the big name to launch in 2005 was the Xbox 360.
It doesn't actually look that dated because it stuck around until 2013 when it was replaced by the Xbox One. What does look dated, however, is the handheld consoles. This is Nintendo's Game Boy Micro.
And you thought early smartphone screens were small.
Before there were smartphones, there were Personal Digital Assistants. These had touch screens, but they weren't like the touch screens you know today. You could only touch one thing at a time and you were best off using a stylus.
While some PDAs had basic games, they were really a business tool that stored contacts, calendars and notes. If you wanted to transfer information, you had to plug them into a computer, set up an infrared link or get an expensive Wi-Fi add-on. Some units let you connect with cellphones for Internet access, but it was slow, buggy and expensive.
There were several big names in PDAs, but the biggest for quite a while was Palm. Here's its Tungsten E2 and Z22, both released in 2005.
8. Portable DVD player
Today if you want to watch a movie on the go, you have the option of loading a file onto your smartphone or tablet, or streaming video over the Internet. In 2005, you had portable DVD players.
These are still around, but they're much less clunky and have higher resolution screens. Back then, they looked more like this.
Modern LED HDTVs are amazingly thin and light. Don't forget that you can get huge screen sizes for not a lot of money. In 2005, HDTVs were just starting to arrive in households and they were huge. This 98-pound Samsung 42" Plasma TV is a good example.
The tricky part is that this was an "HD-ready" TV, which means it didn't even display 720p or 1080p correctly. It scaled them down to 480p. Oh, and it cost $2,800.
Today you can get a Samsung 42-inch LED TV that displays 4K video for $900. Oh, and it only weighs 19 pounds.
10. The Slingbox
Today we have Apple TV, Roku and other gadgets that bring streaming video to our TVs. Back in 2005, the Slingbox brought live TV over the Internet to your computer.
It didn't really take off, but over the years Sling Media has released a few other boxes that do the same thing and its latest project is Sling TV.
