Which Obsolete Technologies Will You Never Get Rid Of?

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

The life cycle for most technologies is not a long one, and yet sometimes, we find ourselves getting a little sentimental about the tech we pick up all the same.

Maybe you’ve formed an attachment to your first cell phone (or at least enough of one to earn it a spot gathering dust in your basement). Maybe you can’t bear to get rid of that 8-track collection you spent so long getting together. Maybe you’re hoping to finally figure out what to do with your transistor radio.

Tell us in the comments what obsolete technologies you’re still holding onto, how long you’ve had it, and why you just don’t want to let it go.
