Microsoft Longs For The 90s

Microsoft has released a video to tap into all the 90s kids who used to use their Internet Explorer browser during the dial-up days, to try and get us interested in Internet Explorer 10. I saw this right on the heels of my 90s nostalgia article, so perfect timing!

The video has gone viral and attracted a lot of attention, as well as praise, whichis of course what Microsoft was intending. However, I think it will take more than an outstanding video to bring back some of the lost Internet Explorer users. The video features POGS, Hungry Hungry Hippos, Tamagotchi, Lisa Frank and the Floppy Disc among others. Its a welcome sight to see all of these 90s relics in a beautifully crafted video.

They've also built a website around the whole theme, which I'd also suggest checking out. The site features a ton of great photos to waste some time. 90s nostalgia is clearly hot right now, so lace up your Reebok Pumps and enjoy it.
