CD Player Skipping

 
 

Even with the supposed "Anti-Skip Protection" if you breathed on your CD Player the wrong way the thing would skip.

Another thing too - the battery power, or lack thereof. I remember spending most of my allowance on batteries because the power the CD players would suck.

Late Fees

 
 

Though they still happen today, they aren't as bad as they were back in the 90's. Seemed like every chance Blockbuster (or selected video chain) had to charge you a late fee, they did.

Pagers

 
 

Didn't you hate it when you would page someone "911" and it took them forever to call you back - It is the 90's equivalent of not getting a text reply back in modern times from someone for hours on end.

I guess even if the technology changes, some of the problems from the human error side stay the same.

Dial-up Internet

 
 

Remember the pains of being on the internet talking with your friends on AOL Chat and someone in the house picked up the phone, cause the connection to disconnect?

Yeah - rough times. Thankfully we have high speed, non-dial-up internet these days.

Furbies

 
 

The toy was introduced in 1998 and was the hottest thing that Christmas; selling over 40 million units in it's first 3 years of production. How and why this was the hottest thing, we may never ever know.

For whatever reason, Hasburo decided to bring the Furby back in 2005 and 2012.
