Yesterday I took my Kindle to Best Buy to get the right memory card for it (why didn't I do this before? I have no idea) and when I took it out, the employee helping me said "Whoa, what is that?" I handed it to him and he said, "I've never seen one of those." The scene repeated itself at the cash register, although the cashier was less interested in what it was than trying to hurry me along.

The 1st generation Kindle was released less than 5 years ago, or a little more than one-sixth of my life ago. On the bright side, I've never gone into a store and heard someone say to me, "Whoa, what is that?!"
