    How about showing us what old electronic technology you have in your own collections. Here's one to start it off.

    This is my PowerBook 145, my first computer. I loved it until it went dark and never powered up again. The black and white monitor's atrocious and the RAM and hard drive capacity are laughable by today's standards, but it was just as indispensable back in the day as my iPad 2 is now.

    That's from the 1980’s, isn't it. They had a whole line of handheld electronic devices, including dictionaries and translators.
