    a non-smart cell phone.
    忽见柳荫下两个小孩子在哀哀痛哭,瞧模样正是武敦儒、武修文兄弟。郭芙大声叫道:「喂,你们在干甚麽?」武 修文回头见是郭芙,哭道:「我们在哭,你不见麽?」

    CDs are becoming obsolete.

    iPods are being more and more replaced by smartphones and iPads.

    Knife sharpening stones still exist, but many ppl use easier machines/tools now.

    and MySpace.

    A smart phone with actual keys and number pad instead of just a big touch screen.

    I had to google what the bloody difference between those three is. (One thing I knew was that iAnything is likely to have that apple picture somewhere on it, but that was about it...)
    Do I qualify as "stuff you don't see much of anymore"...? :-}

    I think you're ok for now. You'll always have peers who are too poor or too old to care about technology.

    My mom just discovered Youtube yesterday.

    I think it's just awkward seeing your older family members on FB, or any social networking site for that matter. *shudders*

    With Christmas coming up, I realized that there are no more shopping catalogs. You know, the ones you used to look at when you were a kid for all your toys? i.e. Sears catalog or really big circulars that listed everything that a store sold. Everything is online now... Sigh, kids are missing out...

    My dilemma is what the heck are you suppose to do when they want to "add" you??! If your own family wasn't enough, it's now the in-laws....

    What you don't see anymore - absence from the in-laws until the next clan gathering, damn technology!

    I just ignore their adds, and if they ask me about it in real life, I just say I haven't been on FB, which is partly true.

    i had to add an aunt. and i can't block her or not add her because she has a total of like 8 connections. she'll know and ask me about it next time i see her.
    nytimes: Every hr you have 10 minutes where youíre not doing anything productive at work, & you canít look at porn. So you make a comment & fulfill this desire to show yourself off as a smarty-pants.

    Hehehe what I have done it put them into a category of "other" and when ever I post or do anything I select to share it with "friends but not other", then they don't get to see what u do and then the onus is on u to turn a blind eye to stuff they post! Though seriously, thank god my mum cannot and does not wanna use a PC. I have a friend who has his parents on FB and they keep sending him candy crush life requests, which are promptly followed by a call to ask why he hasn't obliged yet! Lol poor fellow

    I still have one of the earlier nokia phones, I think its the 5694. If you go to a thift shop they still have vhs. I still have VHS and a vcr but I guess its an antique now, Not sure, don't see it in stores anymore.

    I don't see Walkman or cd players anymore. oh and pagers, maybe sometimes in the hospital but that's about it.
