Very nostalgic. I grew up with kerosene pressure lamps so can remember the day we switched on our first electric light in the house (to explain would take time but there are always refugees making new lives).
The transistor radio is very interesting because when I was a child Japan was notable for making cheap toys and kitchen utensils. Then they started making transistor radios (as you note always defined by the number of transistors). My Dad brought back a beautifully made 8 transistor National Panasonic from Singapore for me as a kid National Panasonic 2 Band 8 Transistor T-801H Radio Panasoni[^] . I treasured that for many years and taped it to my bike handlebars. Transistor radios were banned at school but I used to take it often and remember listening to the Cassius Clay / Sonny Liston Fight at school one day.
Google is an interesting mention and I regard Wikipedia as one of the most marvelous things that technology has brought
