Gadgets We Miss..RIP

It started with an article about Dreamcast turning 15 years old this week.  Yeah, 15.  Feel old yet?


Do you remember how excited these, now outdated, gadget made you?  Take a look at a few of our favorite gadgets that now R.I.P.  (That P being for pieces)

If it was major you hit me on my pager.  It was so awesome. And all the secret codes you and your friends shared?! Classic.

07734 Hello
121 I need to talk to you
123 I miss you
14 Hi




Did you sit by the radio for HOURS waiting for your favorite song to come on so you could record it.  Maybe even make a special "mix tape" <<  old school playlist >>  for that special someone?  Still, to this day, nothing beats a mix tape.
 
Now, this next one might ruffle a few feathers.  I know there are a FEW Blackberry loyalists out there, but still using choosing to use a Blackberry's operating system is just crazy talk!  Android phones and the iPhone 4S offer so many compelling new features. We're calling it.  Outdated.  



What are some of your favorite outdated gadgets?  We'd love to take a trip down memory lane with you!

Dragon's Blood Tree

The dragon's blood tree (Dracaena draco) has a thick, red resin that makes the plant appear to be bleeding when it is cut. These subtropical plants form huge umbrella-like canopies and can grow for hundreds of years, but they are currently listed as Vulnerable by the IUNC due to the trademark resin being used in traditional medicine, violin staining, and even for embalming the dead.
