What is a computer “trick” that in the past was cool, but today is unimpressive and trivial?

For example, in the 90's when I learned that you could embed a hyperlink to a website, but the text could say something other than the website, and to see what it really was you had to mouse over the link. I thought that was so clever but now people would look at me like I was brain dead if I thought that was cool.

What are some other things that used to be clever or cool but now are not?
