On Friday we talked about tidbits of technology that the entire world tells you are wonderful and marvellous, but you just think are generally crap. Let’s flip that whole picture around a little bit.
Let’s face it, we’re here because we’re a little different than most. We tend to look at the world in a bit of a different way, and don’t always agree with the general consensus. I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve been shown the newest, the latest and the greatest, and shrugged indifferently and gone back to my old standby. I use quill-tipped fountain pens almost exclusively when given the option; I have one of the six-blade powered razors, and would have a straight-razor shave every time if given the chance. I was rebuilding carburetors long after everyone said the only way to go was electronic fuel injection.
Other than AtomicToasters, obviously, what piece of technology do you cling to and love dearly, even though the rest of the world tells you it’s outdated garbage?
