All you have to do is think technology and you'll have a plethora of terms (e.g. type writer, Walk man, pager/beeper)...

"Tune in" - When was the last time you actually tuned a radio or TV?

"Don't touch that dial" - Like TV's have HAD dials for the last 15 years...

"Ice Box"
We never had one, but my parents did when they were kids, and they always called the fridge an ice box.

"record player"

Dial tone is still in use a fair amount, though. While we no longer have a home telephone (four cell phones) I use one at work and, if there is a phone line problem, still report no dial tone.

As far as I'm concerned "irregardless" is not and has never been a word, irregardless of the fact it doesn't report as misspelled when I type it here.

We still use the term "dial tone" but we don't dial any more. It's an obsolete term

I don't think walkman qualifies in quite the same way as carriage return.

Indeed the walkman concept is very much alive, they are just white now...!
