Vintage Technology You still Use?
 
Do any of you guys still use old vintage technology; such as turntables, walkmans, or cassette decks? If so, what do you still have a use for and why?

I still love listening to records. There's just something about the pops and the sound of a record that I like. I also think the music sounds more appealing to me on vinyl.

Work related, I just had to go buy a dot matrix printer, because we use a 4 part form. Man I thought we could get rid of those things... and same with faxes.

Mine is mostly music based also.I still have all my records and cassettes.
I still have and use a late 70's Pioneer turntable I bought from a classmate in high school{class of 80).When he owned it I remember him taking the lid off and cleaning his weed in the lid,lmao.
I also have a thing for 3 wheelers,I would say thats old technology :) My current 3 wheeler is a 1985 250ES Big red

I still use the same alarm clock that I used in college in 1980. It's a trooper.

I have an old school NES hooked up. Still works fine, of course you have to do that blow into the cartridge thing sometimes.

I found one off of Ebay a few years ago for an ex. She said she wanted the old school Nintendo, and low and behold, she couldn't believe that I actually found one with several of the games she wanted. Kind of wished I could have bought that thing for myself!

Well, sometimes you'll have a company in which the IT department refuses to upgrade, because if it's not broke, don't fix it! We (my IT department) are kind of like that. When I first got hired, we had an in house program that was DOS based. (I got hired in 2005.) We finally moved on from that, but we still use an old version of Novell Netware, like version 3.XX. It still works just fine though.
