That'll be the next obsolete item.

i'm old at 34 i guess. i sub at the local high school. one day last week, kids were trying to figure out how to use a floppy disk- how do i put it in, these things have no memory, etc. another day they were talking to each other about cassette tapes in regards to a project about the 1990's- is it the same on both sides, how many songs will it store? my wife teaches at the high school, and she had to give a kid a ride home in her 1996 geo. the kid was amazed that she actually had to use a key to unlock the car door!

personally i still have an atari 2600 with about 100 games, a record player, a hand powered meat grinder, a toaster oven i use more than the microwave, and a 1983 vw rabbit gti with hand cranked windows and power nothing. i may be a freak of nature since i'm one of 10 people in the country who don't own a cellphone. i'm border line 21st century luddite.

there's my obsolete term- luddite. a person who shuns modern conviences and new technology, which break down often and are no better than what was used before the new item came onto the market to replace it.
