    With the rapidly changing technological world we live in, it seems that as soon as you buy something, there is something new out to replace it. Some of these items, I really do miss using. The first thing that comes to mind for me was my trusty Palm Pilot. Before smart phones we used one of these to jot all of our thoughts down and it also had a set of some primitive but functional apps. I was actually upset when I had to stop using it as I became quite good at writing in the Palm's native "Graffiti" alphabet.

    I moved from the M505 to the Palm Treo smartphone. Unfortunately, just like all their other customers I moved to a Blackberry and then an iPhone.

    My 1st MP3 player. Pre-Ipod. It took the old large SD cards that you would put in digital cameras. I used to play it through my cassette adapter in my car. I thought I was cutting edge back then...

    No, I'm not shitting you. I enjoyed the hell out of using these at my grandmother's and grandfather's homes as a kid despite them already being obsolete technology when I was born, lol.
