- Compact Discs (CD's) were first introduced and sold in the U.S.
- Microsoft introduced Windows 1.0 (wow, the beginning of the end)
- Back to the Future was one of the top movies of the year, but so was Rambo: First Blood II (one of my personal faves : )
- a gallon of gasoline was about $1.20, and a first-class stamp was 20 cents.
