We got caller ID back in 1996, so it was around in the mid 90s.

Cell phones were around in the late 90s. I had one! Teletubbies also were around in 1998 and 1999, my son watched them as an infant! The First George Bush was in office until January, 1992!

I was thinking the same thing as others reading his list.  Kyle seems far too young to remember the 90s with any kind of substance or accuracy.  I had Caller ID as far back as 1993.  I started using a cell phone regularly in 1998, but I know a lot of people used them regularly as far back as 1993 or 1994.  The big bulky brick looking "mobile phone" or car phone deal was more of a pre-1993 thing.  There were also plenty of superhero movies in theaters in the 90s, that wasn't invented in the 2000s.  Wasn't Pokemon a late 90s fad?  The Saturday morning cartoon deal is off too. 

Has it come to this?  It was only about 3-5 years ago us Gen Xers were in shock and correcting kids about what they mistakenly believed about the 80s,(like we were living so barbaric back then),  I can't believe we've already moved up to the 1990s.  I think I'm really going to know I'm old when a kid asks me if we had computers and cars back in 2001.

Yeah..my Dad had a "bag phone"..it was really big (especially compared to now!), but he could carry it in his truck!  ;D

And you know..the Ninja Turtles were big in the early 90's..but my son watches them now on Cartoon Network.  Even new ones,  I believe. 

And Tanya--my daughter, who is 7 now, watched the Teletubbies back in 97-98 too.  We had every one of the darned stuffed talking ones...can't say I miss them all that much...my two year old just watches Sesame Street so far.  :)

No more Teletubbies! Once you get over the initial cuteness of it all, it's so taxing! My son would go crazy over the baby in the sun! Why? I have the faintest idea!

Most 90s cell phones were the old analog style phone, like the one I used to have. I got my first digital phone in 1999 though. You could say VHS for the 90s (and earlier) and DVD for the 2000s, even though DVDs were out at the end of the 90s, but really have taken over in the 2000s.

2000s - Crappy TGIF
90s - good TGIF and SNICK (Are you afraid of the dark?)

2000s - Dora the Explorer
90s - David the Gnome

2000s - Every genre on Top40 radio has been glossed over with poppy crap (Rock, Rap, "Punk," are all just masqued poppy crap these days)
90s - Top40 = 90s Alternative and Gangsta Rap.

2000s - Degrassi: The Next Generation, Lizzy MacGuire
90s - Saved by the Bell, My So Called Life, THE WONDER YEARS (single greatest show ever, though it started in the 80s, but it finished in the 90s)

2000s - Harry Potter (though, first book hit in 98 I think)
90s - Goosebumps

I could go on all day, but I have to study... buh bye!

You should've gone...

'90s: Vanilla Ice

Much more appropriate IMO. Fred Durst mixes Rap/Hip Hop with Rock. While Eminem is doing "pure" Rap/Hip Hop just like Vanilla Ice used to do 13, 14 years back.  ;)

A few popular series from the eighties and early nineties are being revived, but they will never be as popular as they were. During the Turtles craze of late eighties and early nineties the turtles had 3 movies that made over 300 million in three years, 2 arcade games, 3 gameboy games, 2 Genesis games, 4 Nintendo games, and 2 Super Nintendo games. The Turtles revival of late is nothing more than lazy, uncreative TV people running out of ideas, so why not exploit a concept that had it's time over a decade ago. I feel sorry for the young Generation Y kids, they're getting all our leftovers instead of any good new shows.

Here's for accuracy. I'm currently trying to exlpain to my 10 year old neighbor (who owns a cell phone) that when I was his age(I'm an '82 baby) kids didn't own cell phones because they were too expensive. My mother only had one (that fat motorola w/ the "send" button) because she was a doctor and kept getting paged all the time. I remember watching the movie "Clueless" and thinking How amazing it would be to be in school have a cell phone :o. I wouldn't have to run to the pay phones all the time!  ;D When I was a junior in high school one of my freinds , who was 4 years older and out of school, had a cell phone. I didn't see minors with cell phones until after I graduated high school myself. I got my own around the same time. I think they were  less expensive by then. ;)

The same can be said for adult entertainment(not porn), as well.  I had to wait, so they should, too.  It's not fair, it's like I'm never gonna escape my childhood if kids are gonna be enjoying the same things I am all my life.

When I said "less expensive" I meant that they may have been affordable enough for people to spend money on a phone for their kids.  That's just a theory I had.Through my P.O.V. the only cell phone owners I knew or saw prior to 2000 were legal adults w/ jobs or upper-middle class kids pretending their parents' business cell belongs to them. In high school, NONE of my own peers had a cell phone, even the middle-class or upper-Middle class kids. I asked my mother for one but she said I had to get a job and pay for my own. The point I was making was that I had noticed within in a couple years there was a quick shift from what was once viewed as an unnecessary luxury in my middle school years to something so important that some parents today have their children carry to summer camp with them.

I'd replace 1990s with SEGA and move Atari to 1980s (Atari in the '90s was treated with goofiness like 8-track tapes were in the '80s). In addition to moving Madonna to the '80s, I'd replace the '90s with Mariah Carey.

Haha that's true!!!!!!!!! I do remember the time when SEGA was around :p just shortly before PS1 becomes Popular :D but I think Both Madonna and Mariah Carey were popular... other diva's like Celine Dion and Whitney Houston also dominate the charts... it was hard for me to decide :p

But it came out at the very end of the 2000's, so I consider it more of a 2010's movie. Also, the sequels are scheduled to be released in 2014 and 2015, so the Avatar series would mostly be considered 2010's.

How is Google typical 90's? I discovered it in 2001 and am still using it today. The reason why I have discovered it around one year after I got internet access is that nobody really talked about it during that time. It was not as popular in its early stages as it was all over the '00's.
Youtube is a video site and not a general search engine. It's also more of a second-half-00's thing whereas Google is a real 2000's-decade-thing!

I wasn't comparing them for search engines but more as a difference of what websites we had in those decades. When I was young, my teachers were so hyped about Google when it first launched in 1998. So, I always thought of Google as more of a late 90's website because I used it all the time in my later elementary school years.

Yeah but Google first launched in 1998 last I checked and I used it quite a bit in 1998-1999. I always found Google to be a part of my childhood in the late 90's. :/ Yeah sure it was used a lot more in the 00's but don't forget it was created in the late 20th century.

And what did you use in 2000-2009 for searching? 

The things that really made Google to what it is today (besides the plain search engine) were created in the 00's and not the '90's: Google Photo Search, Google Video, Google Maps, Google Street View and so on.

A better example for the '90's would be a website which was really only available in the '90's and maybe the earlier 2000's; but it can't be a website which is still very popular and still developing in 2012.

There has been lots of improvement during the last years. Wrong editing will be dealt with pretty fast now.
It's not sufficient for academic purposes though, but still a good source for researching facts.

I wasn't saying that I remembered google - because it wasn't offered to Joe Q. Public until roughly 2000.
It may have been incorporated in 1998, but it was still under Standford or whever the heck had it with a .edu on the end.
It wasn't mainstream in the late 90's - askjevees, altavista and excite were the biggest search engines.
