sometimes while reading fanfiction it becomes obvious that the author has forgotten that 2012 is almost ten years ago and that technology was actually very different then. then I have a crisis about 2012 being long enough ago that some fanfic authors need to do research to have historical accuracy. 

….this makes me uncomfortable

I really wanna know what felt different about technology in 2012.

The only thing I can easily pin down is that my phone’s internet was slower, and the HD video it took was a bit grainier.
