I own an old cassette recorder, a micro cassette recorder and 2 vhs players (and yes they record) I hate how mow everythings digital and sure you can record video, audio and such on nanos,shuffles,and such like that, but hwo do you share it? how do you store it? If i record audio on an mp3 player i can take the tape out and store it, it stays on the mp3 player or onto my hard drive, not an item but codes that only the system knows :(
I have an NES, a VHS player, a tape recorder, fuckloads of VHS's, a speak 'n spell, a TV made in the late 70's, a Mac computer made in the early 90's.
and a lot of stuff that my grandma owned when she was younger, younger as in back when my mom was a kid. but thats all in storage.
I've got a TV/VCR combo that was very helpful in the 1990s. It looks so small now. And a Sega Genesis. :) And somewhere, there is a small, handheld tape recorder that was supposed to help record teacher lectures, but I don't know if it actually got used for that.
OH! And I have an old dial telephone that was there when we moved in. It is wall-mounted, maybe 30 years old, and makes calls sound scratchy and far away, lol. I took it off the wall because of the complaints, but if the power ever goes out, I can still use it. It doesn't need electricity to work.
VCR, radio cassette player and we have typewriter which in theory works.
I like all digital stuff just because they sound and look better. But yea, I do like to have all DVDs and CDs physically existing. I like the covers and organize the cases in different ways. Alphabetically, by colour... Well, I'm a bit weird. :D
Super Nintendo (before the 64s), Gameboy Pocket (missed the original gameboy), gameboy color, gameboy advance, gameboy sp, vhs player+recorder, large book case of vhs tapes and cassettes, cassette player+recorder, walkman, and an old tv from the 60s? (i really dunno when) that doesn't have any plugs that fit with anything new.
Let's see... I wouldn't call VHS 'old school', because it's not exactly that old.
I do, however, have an 8-track, which I'm sure can be branded as old. I suppose cassette tapes and stereos with record players in them could be counted as old. The stereo in my living room is a record player from the late 70's.
As far as computers and gaming goes, I have a Packard Bell computer from 1991 and an Aptiva computer from 1995. I have a SNES, and a Game Boy Pocket. I used to have an Astrocade, Atari, NES, and Game Boy, but all of those got thrown out when I was in middle school because my parents claimed I was 'too old for games'. Came home one day and they were gone, just like that. SNES survived just because it was under my bed, not in use at the time.
I'm about to own an old camera where you have to set up all the lights and everything, because it was something my grandmother owned when she was still alive and we're cleaning out the house since my uncle wants to finally sell it (my grandfather passed away a year and a half ago now ). I've no clue how old the camera is, but I know it's been in the family for generations. I can't wait to try it out.
