What technology do you miss the most?

Photo from: http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2010/02/blast-from-the-past-vintage-technologies-that-we-no-longer-use/There’s a great post on Web Designer Depot listing 38 vintage technologies that we no longer use.

Most of the technologies that we have used in the past have been eclipsed by the remarkable technology that we use today.

Advances in their design have occurred in tandem with the advances in technology in this digital era, with many large products being redesigned and miniaturized into amazingly small sizes.

While we may laugh at the fact that anyone ever found this technology to be cutting-edge, we can’t discount its place in history as a forerunner for all of the technology that wouldn’t exist today without its dinosaur ancestry.

I must admit the line up had me feeling a little nostalgic for the good ol’ days. The boom box, turntable, Walkman and dial-up modem almost made me shed a tear.

Take a look at the list, did they miss anything? What retired technology do you miss most?

    I'm surprised by how much I miss Zip disks. Maybe it's not necessarily for the technology per se, but maybe the time of my life that it was actually popular? Dunno, but I remember running across some old disks and wanting to hook up my old G4 tower that had a Zip 250 drive in it. :)
