  2. Def pirated south park. Don't lie

  3. I had one of these and the slightly newer version which supported GPS, it was my sat nav for A LONG TIME…

  4. Overclock It!!!!!

  5. A nds stulus would work fine. Palm pilot…. Haha i rmbr those. Couldnt afford one. Didnt need one. Only those businessy rich types had these

  6. 5:35 I don't remember when the start menu was last kept on the bottom right, I don't even think it's an option to put it on the right with the taskbar at the bottom.

  7. He avoided his hidden repertories so no vintage hot pics of Pamela Anderson .. 🙁

  8. 13:18 "Back then it was really big freakin' deal"
    You really think no one remembers that anymore?
    On a different note. If I recall correctly there also used to be loads of accessories for these things that would plug into CF card reader – bar-code readers, GPS-receivers, finger print scanners, cameras etc. Also, Bluetooth and WiFi cards for devices that didn't have on built in.
    Transport authorities in my hometown used something like this PDA with expansion module to check RFID tickets.

  9. Ahh yes the HP TurboVirgin5000

  10. Guessing nobody else had a project ready to film??? Out comes the random video !

  11. I had the same one. My parents bought me it for Christmas in 2004. Was in first year of secondary school.

  12. What kind of backpack does Linus use?

  13. You changed your title

  14. Linus "its using an ARM 920t"….."then 6 secs later, "I'm looking for what processor this is". Hmmm I wonder what it could be?

  15. Linus in the 13 years…
    "The Galaxy Note 9" i've had in my attic for 13 years…

  16. for that time, that this is blazing fast XD

  17. I had the Acer M900. It had a sliding horizontal physical keyboard and even a fingerprint scanner! It was awesome to text on it. Clicky and satisfying!

  18. The craziest thing about this is the Windows Mobile. Linus acts like it's this old outdated thing(which it totally is) but they still sell PDAs with Windows Mobile 6.5 (Intermec, who i believe is owned by Honeywell now). At a previous job a year or 2 ago the place i worked for just bought ~15 of these Intermec CK75 all with Windows Mobile. Being a dev with modern tools and modern practices, it's hard to go back to that kind of technology and write code for it, I remember I had to use an old version of Visual Studio specifically to write the program they wanted to use for it. These things were the bane of my existence https://www.honeywellaidc.com/products/computer-devices/handheld/ck75

  19. Linus looks like the type of guy that meets people called David in the park

  20. Hahaha i was have this thing also when i was 13 or 15 years old or some and play that game also allot hahahahaa

  21. 520mhz??? OMG!! My HTC Voyager "only" had a 133mhz proc. overclocked to 158mhz… 😂😂😂

  22. I remember playing Tomb Raider on mine

  23. my guess is Core codec player & that middle button is suppose act like enter button on keyboard..

  24. Caveman tries to teach people why 15 year old mobile computer is good to use today

  25. Open up a mobile hotspot on your smartphone,

  26. @9:31 "Red hot??!!" Video of the latest ATI card from back in the day huh??🤣🤣

  27. That 13yr old phone is better than my current phone

  28. "It's sooooooo thick!"
    Dude, it still fits in your pocket though.
    Not a fan of unnecessarily thin phones.

  29. What? Linus used to paint French girls?

  30. 9:08 I just want to browse the root directory!
    Apple: No. We soldered it to memory card.
