      • Not all toys had to be robotic to be popular in the 90s. The low tech Beanie Babies introduced in 1993 sold more than 100 million units in just three years.

      • Since TiVo is a subscription service, the company is able to anonymously gather its users' viewing habits. The most rewound TiVo moment in history was Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" during the Super Bowl halftime show in 2004.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Narrator: It was the dot com decade when big and clunky paved the way for small and smart. Virtual pets sought electric sustenance, a military mover invaded suburbia, George Forman plugged a little item to knock out the fat and a guy named Tim wove a web of information that changed the world. Now, 90's Tech, on Modern Marvels.
