It's funny, talking to my mom recently, she said she was so glad that the Internet became popular after I was out of the house...otherwise, it would be a whole other thing to worry about.
I went through HS right before cell phones and Internet. Some of my friends had pagers (remember those?) and would use pay phones. We had a PC but the only internet was slow modem access to bulliten boards.
Now, every kid has a cel phone!
I remember trying to get my sister off the phone during one of her marathon conversations with her friends, just to call a buddy to get a time to pick him up. Ah, how things have changed in a few short years.
