Nokia 3310: a tug on the heart strings that failed

Nostalgia is a seductive liar George Ball wrote in Newsweek back in 1971. That quote still rings true today as we look at the new Nokia 3310 in an attempt to be transported back to the heyday of the original. I know that memories are often rosy, I know that the memes use hyperbole when talking about the original Nokia 3310.
