i know all the rave these recent years are on smart phones, MP3, IPADS, IPODS, IWATCHAMACALLITS etc. most of of these new items are what most people use an own. does anyone still use the old and "obsolete" radios and music players?
i have a ZEN mp3 player thats a few years old and havent gotten into the Apple products and smartphones. i doubt i will get into the smart phones and Apple. im currently using a dell inspiron600 which is atleast 6yrs old, its showing its age in processor speed but im satisfied with it for the most part. will need to get a desktop as the coolong fan bearing are worn out eventually. im not much into the newest tech but i do keep the old tech, i have a coca cola cassette player from mid 90s that needs a contact cleaning, 2 discman (1 brittish model), they're probably mid 90s also. i dont use either of those 3.
i do use a small am fm radio that is maybe 20yrs old???? and i still love it. its about half inch thick and can be touchy regarding signal recption but ive dropped it accidentally from 4ft high 3 times and the thing still works perfectly
. its about 1/2 inch thick, GE 7-1990A and about $25 on the market. it does have some plastic fatigue from old age and the protective cap for the plug is long gone. it runs on a single AAA battery. im not sure of the actual age but i cant tell for sure when it was made. does anyone else have such old devices they use even with the new mp3 players readily available?
