    i still like polaroid pics & i miss foldable road maps...i'm kind of a map enthusiast, though. and, i love how they mention how the phone book basically just gets used as a booster seat...so true!

    We still have an answering machine. Voicemail was an extra charge per month on the phone bill, so it's thrifty. It's part of our cordless phone system.

    I love maps. I like to hold the map in my lap during roadtrips and keep track of how far we've gone.

    I'm glad fax machines are dying out. I hate the damn things.

    I will always use a road map. I also use my phone book at least 3-4 times a week and although I'm terrible about keeping up my rolodex, you just meet too many people in a business context and take too many business cards not to have some way to access and organize them.

    I need my appointment book and Rolodex. That thing is gold to me. I need the tactile and visual experience. Thoughts from my brain flow through the pen and onto paper is how my brain works. Old fashioned, but I never miss a beat. It's like note taking in school. The moment I write something down (not typed) it's etched into my head.

    Payphones are disappearing. Really annoying when the cel battery goes dead.

    I remember when floppy disks were way bigger than the one in their pic.

    When we really felt old: About 7 years ago our son (who was 3 then) pointing to a vinyl Bob Marley album hanging on the wall in a Hot Topic at the Mall (for DECORATION, no less!) say: "Omygawd....Daddy! LOOK at that GIANT CD!"

    I'm glad floppy disks are dying. They weren't as reliable as blank CDs for saving things to. I loved Polaroid cameras as a kid.

    And I still have a lot of my old cassettes. I listen to them every now and then on my old walkman. But since some of them are warping I'll have to get the CD versions of the albums. But CDs are definitely much better.

    CDs are pretty much dead too.

    after i broke my cell and was waiting for the new one in the mail, i had to make calls (no house phone...) so i went searching for a payphone. it was crazy trying to find one! i also felt like some sort of deviant while i was on it at the gas station because who doesn't have a cell these days? it was awful!

    we still use a fax machine at work and I loathe the thing. one of these days I'm going to do an "Office Space" on it and take it out in a field and hit it with a bat

    Yup. We need a new compact stereo system, and the number of them on the market is tiny. Almost everything available is strictly an iPod docking station, no CD capacity at all.
