    I think this is the right thread for this.

    AVAAZ has issued this warning: -

    Details are leaking of a top-secret, global corporate power grab of breathtaking scope -- attacking everything from a free Internet to health and environmental regulations, and we have just 4 days to stop it.

    It can mean only one thing. George Lucas is creating a hologram of Steve Jobs and Apple will rule the planet.

    So say we all. ;)

    I'm curious about the perceived value of old technology and what drives the premium paid for it.

    You've mentioned you're a collector. What do you do with these pieces after acquiring them?

    The BBC is running a series of programmes "Put your Money where your Mouth is" in which 2 antique dealers compete to earn as much profit as possible from items they buy with their own cash. Profits go to charity.

    Can you see where this is leading?

    Yesterday one dealer bought a box full of old hair cutting and beard trimming items, boxed. He had a customer in mind; a hairdresser who would probably display the antiques in his salon. The old kit was glorious. There was a "Britain Strop" boxed up, gold plated clippers etc. The customer commented "We now use electric, so what do I do with these?" the reply was about creating a great retro display. I think the collection was sold for £300. It was bought by the dealer for £100!

    The trouble is, I remember similar clippers being used on me as a lad! :)
