A lot of folks are not able to move on with the trend, they do everything to resist change which is a normal trait of the human being – being scared of what’s replacing something you know how to use.
Is that a pager in the list? Reminds me of that mediocre film, London has fallen
Do you mean White House Down? That's the one where the pager was used.
^ This. I think he's mixing it up with Olympus Has Fallen.
Oh yea, White House Down.. I missed that,
Would be great if this article were just one page :(
Some of these like VCRs for instance are all dependent on the level of technological and financial advancement in each country. Where I live, no one uses a VCR unless its to pull up cold storage archived stuff which also is slowly being converted to DVD format. As for pagers, it seems to be more convenient and more reliable than a cellphone sometimes for really short messages.
How short a message. Nah the cellphone is way better than a pager
Except that pagers are more reliable when it gets busy on the network, plus they apparently also work better in spots where cellphones have bad reception like in the lower levels and tunnels of a hospital (or bunker in the White House?)...
U.S. using floppy discs for its nuclear program is actually smart. No worries about hackers hacking their nuclear network and two floppy discs only last about a day (those floppy discs are easily bendable and the data gets corrupted easily ). All they need is to reformat the floppy disc numerous times
Really? Who use pagers nowadays? :P
Nurses in the hospital.
Not in India for sure.
Alot of people are still using SDTV =(
my nes zapper doesnt work on HDTVs.
I'm pretty sure people still use CRT TV as well.
What's wrong with that? CRTs and SDTVs still function fine. Sometimes better than HDTVs. Not to mention many older consoles don't work on many new TVs.
