It is really quite amazing the sheen variety of goods that someone can acquire and then not be able to get rid of, and decide to hand out free. Here at AT, we like to start our Sunday mornings out taking a look at such free items from online classifieds like the Craigslist, especially that stuff that is bits of obscure technology. But especially items that are just completely out there that you never would have expected, and our big winner found just such a thing. Or well, things, whatever, hit the jump and check it out!

It is time again to take a look at some of the glorious free old-tech swag available on the webs! Go onto your favorite local online or print classifieds, or just drive down the street in the evening after garage sale time, and see what sort of quality merchandise is being given away free. Then share woth all of us in the comments!

Last week was a little slow, so I thought today I would share a few things that have recently come up in my neck of the woods!

Welcome to our weekly look at the best bits of tech (or not) the internet has to offer up for the price of free! Congratulations are in order for last week’s big winner, mkep819, for some excellent bundles of twine! I am not entirely sure about the ethics of having an elderly family […]

It is Sunday, and not only that, it is Mothers Day, and you know what that means–SFSIWI time! You mom is always telling you it isn’t the amount of money you spent or the gift you buy, right? It is the thought that counts! And what better thought than to tell mom you were […]

Sometimes Free Stuff Isn’t Worth It

The other day at work, in our lounge type area, I happened to catch a commercial on tv that I hadn’t seen in years. Apparently NuFinish still makes car products, and they also are apparently still showing the same commercials I remember with the guy in the junkyard polishing some 80’s Taurus or […]

It’s Easter Sunday today, and I hope everyone is having a glorious morning! Perhaps you have been up since before dawn, trying to catch that rascally rabbit before he eggs up your lawn. Perhaps you are simply looking forward to buying cut rate Cadbury eggs tomorrow morning at the grocery store. Either way, […]

Sometimes Free Stuff Isn’t Worth It

Spring seems to be in the full swing of all its springy goodness, swinging from nice warm sunny days to storms and snow (not where I live, but I mean, so I hear). It also brings with it the joys of being motivated to clean out such fun locations as the garage, and […]

A Nerdy Weekend Filled With Success and Resounding Failure

Xubuntu Laptop

This last weekend I decided to tackle a couple of tech projects I’ve been meaning to do for a while. The genesis of all of this was the fact that I have a detached garage with no connection to the innerwebs. Having access to the tubes that carry the World Wide Web while working on a project out there without having to run inside and muck up the desktop’s keyboard with dirty or greasy hands would be quite convenient. So, I developed a plan. As we all know, the best laid plans fall apart as soon as the first shot is fired.

Sometimes Free Stuff Isn’t Worth It

Free stuff is fun, but going out and grabbing someone’s discarded treasures always carries its own bit of risk. You could end up with a stinky couch, or some obsolete electronic device that requires spending semi-excessive amounts of money to make it work. But, there are certainly some things that are worth it! […]

Sometimes Free Stuff Isn’t Worth It

Chalk this one up to problems of the future, but have you ever noticed the humor in someone typing out a word that sounds similar when spoken, although not the same meaning when typed out? Then you realize that an individual has likely formed an idea in their head all this time what […]
