Any Oiler fan will tell you it’s been a long 10 plus years since the playoffs were in the City Of Champions! The world was a different place. Here’s 4 things that didn’t exist in 2006, the last time the Oilers were in the playoffs:
-iPhones: Can you even remember a world without smartphones? The first generation iPhone was released on June 29, 2007 (almost one year to the day after the Oilers last playoff game).
-Social Media: Snap chat, Instagram, Vine, they weren’t even ideas yet! Facebook was still a Harvard student site that wasn’t opened to the public until September of that year. (Twitter was around but was only 3 months old).
-Google Maps: Imagine a world without Google maps. How did we find anything??
-The Cloud: Remember when you would run out of storage and have to buy USB sticks just to keep your photos? The struggle was real in 2006!
(Honorable Mention) Youtube: The video sharing site was only 9 months old when The Oilers played in the 2006 playoffs! How did we go back and re watch all the goals?
