In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Going Obsolete.”
Of all the technologies that have gone extinct in your lifetime, which one do you miss the most?
There aren’t too many technologies that I miss but the VCR is one of them. Mine sadly died a death about 10 years ago leaving me with a pile of videos that can no longer be watched (it’s nigh on impossible to find a video player these days).
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not stuck in the old days – I have fully embraced dvd’s, blu ray, online streaming etc. What I miss is the random things I used to video off the TV. Random recordings that I have mostly forgotten now but seemed hugely important at the time. I miss being able to take that trip down memory lane, even if it is just to watch the second half of ‘True Lies’ because I couldn’t stay awake long enough to watch the movie in full!
