Kapow Turns 17!

Yesterday, 31st July 2012, we celebrated our 17th Birthday! There have been a lot of changes since we sent the first web originated SMS message in the UK, back in 1995.

Lets take a little trip down memory lane... in 1995:

  • There were less than 19,000 websites on the world wide web!
  • Nokia launched the 2110, the first mobile phone in the world to use vibrations.
  • Windows 95 was released.
  • eBay founded.
  • T9 predictive texting was invented.
  • The announcement of the much used DVD!
  • Pierce Brosnan debuted as agent 007 in "Goldeneye", the 4th highest grossing film of the year.
  • Toy Story was born! It was the first feature length film to be created using CGI.
