What old electrical items do you have?

Hello guys,

Please post what old electrical items that you have. You may post photos of them as well explain what are and still used or not. Please reply soon.

Mine are:

1. Philips VCR which is still used quite often.
2. 1970s Binatone Digital Alarm Radio Clock which still wakes me up every morning.
3. HP Jornada 710 PDA which I use that least a once a week.

A Märklin from 1935 - as a kid I used to play with it. My Father had traded it for a radio during WWII. There were cars and tracks with it too - unfortunately those got lost .

Hi all

Minidisc recorders -- still can't do without them -- far far better than cruddy over compressed MP3 stuff. They soung great played into high quality amps as well

An IPOD sounds like you are hearing music with your ears full of Golden Syrup when played into high quality Audio equipment.

I have to run the software on an XP virtual machine (to get music in FLAC on to the MD using Simple Burner -- a little bit of a pain as I burn a "Virtual CD" from the FLAC tracks and then "burn" this on to an MD - Gracenote recognition automatically labels the tracks and on a 1GB Hi-MD disc at quality sound settings it will get around 7 - 8 complete CD's on an MD -- fine for most purposes).

MD's are also great for recording at gigs , sending demo's for recoreding, student notes, journalism out in the field etc etc.

Cheers
jimbo

My first ever Mac computer, a Mac Plus bought in December of 1987. The external HDD died a long time ago (20 Mb), however, the internal and external 3.5" drives both work. It is running OS 7.5 (the last update I did for the system). Whenever I even think of buying a Netbook (shoot me) i look over at that nine inch screen then back at the iMac 27", and the Gateway FX-7028 with a 28" monitor and say whatever for. . .
