14 Old-School Technologies We Still Can’t Live Without

Still using technology that's referred to as old and outdated? You're not alone.  

Someone recently asked, “What old and obsolete technology; do you still use and enjoy using?” Here are the top-voted responses. 

Wired Headphones

Wired headphones are great for those looking for an alternative to earbuds. Some people even struggle with having them stay in their ears. Plus, they need to charge, making them inconvenient for people who travel.  

Pencil and Paper

There's something super satisfying about how a pencil sounds on paper. It's generally easier to leave notes this way than doing it on a laptop.  

Physical Menus

It's become commonplace for restaurants to offer QR codes instead of a physical menu. This tends to aggravate hungry customers.  

CD and Cassette Player

Using a boombox to listen to CDs and cassettes of your favorite bands from the 1980s is a vibe many music fans still enjoy. 


There's a saying: they don't make them like they used to. There's something reliable about beloved cards like a Ford Ranger or a Chevy Truck.  

Film Cameras

Using physical film for a camera has been in style. There's enjoyment from those in the industry to develop their own movie in a dark room.
