What Old Tech Do You Use By Choice?

Most times we are stuck using old tech because we cannot afford the newest model or cannot justify the cost until the correct time.

What older tech do you use because you prefer it over newer tech that has the same general function?

Non-Smart Phones. I don't like being so tied down. I'd much rather have a device I can send a text or two from if I need and make a call or two. I don't want my phone buzzing all the time with Twitter/Facebook updates.

Once I purchase my smartphone my calls increased a lot and it became my personal line which was handy because it comes directly to me, helpful tool as well, started texting which I had not done before, I can see how it could make one feel a bit tired down, like you cannot really get away from a computer. I used to try to talk with people on messenger while running errands (NOT while driving) and soon stopped trying to do that. I can have a couple hours where no one needs to reach me.

The smart phone has spoiled me a bit, looking up information while out, GPS etc... before that I had a tracfone, I may have to drop down to a cheaper plan phone by the end of the year, not thrilled, oh well, things happen plus nothing stops me from getting another in a year or two.

I still play my old Nintendo for no good reason - other than that it's fun, of course.

I still remember the day I got it...

I still keep an old land-line phone (the kind with a cord and no batteries in it). Think about it for a minute. f you have VOIP, and your internet service goes out, how are you going to call for service issues? If your power goes out during a storm, Then there goes your internet service AND no cordless phone will work either. If you have a local disaster that either knocks out your cell service or too many people try to use it to the point nobody can get through... Plain old telephone lines just take a licking and keep on ticking.

We had a non cordless phone for that very reason, however we moved everything to a cable phone service so if the cable and power go out I must depend on the cell phones which has been fine so far. Having a regular phone line can be good.

I'm stuck on a Pentium 4. Can't play games properly. But in general, it runs fine.
