What old tech are you still using?
>iPod nano 4g
I literally don't sync it because I've lost backups of my old music, can't be bothered redownloading it, and don't want to lose them on my iPod.

Op I have an iPod that exact model I found in my house (red version). I have a problem though. Whenever I plug it in it boots up fine but when I unplug it, it immediately shuts off
Have you tried changing the battery?
The last good iPod nano was 5th gen. After they dropped the spinny wheel it just became a slightly cheaper but heavily gimped iPod touch.
Also if you're in aus check cex. Might be able to get a new unit pretty cheap.
My battery still lasts a couple of days I think, but it's not as good as it used to be.
It's in its 8th year now.
I've got an ipod mini first gen that I like to dick around with if that counts
Are you me, OP?
Although, mine went crazy long time ago. I don't know how to fix it, but still works 75% of time.
My server is probably the oldest thing that sees continuous practical use, but I frequently swap around random artifacts from my collection, at the moment I'm DDing a 16 year old PowerBook G3/333 and I'm pleasantly surprised at how well it runs in a "modern" context.
Iphone 1st gen 8gb. Pic isn't mine.
Mine was given to me secondhand when I was in highschool from some friends living in France. We didn't get the 1G in my country. Came to my hands with a:
shattered glass and a partially fucked screen I never bothered to repair, I don't really need a pretty screen for music)
broken camera (don't need it anyways, (I gots proper SLR)
Couldn't get wifi on it. Well, It wouldn't be a nice experience to browse the web with the screen in such a state.
For some reason it jumbles up album covers once synchronized and never found a fix for this, I just stopped bothering.
What matters is the headphone jack was working and that stopped working recently. While walking I had to constantly reajust the jack position to keep it working, butn it has been my faithful player of choice for 5 years and as a result I have suffered for using itunes for that long now and I love music so much that I basically would use it for about five hours a day.
I guess it's time to say goodbye.
...I can't actually wait to get a new compact mp3 player and never have to use this again. It served me well certainly.

I'm still using an ancient iPhone 6+ and all the other kids are making fun of me ;_;
But my mother's boyfriend won't buy me a new one.
Work setup: IBM model M keyboard. Sharp Compet desktop calculator with mechanical keys and a VFD display. Compact VFD calculator for counting in the dark warehouse. The mouse is just for fun in this pic. I normally use a first gen Microsoft Intellimouse.
The only old stuff I use at home is an amp and speakers from the 1970's, and a white label model M.
I feel like these things would have been pretty popular for us back then.
Worst thing about the psp is that my mother took it away to motivate me to study for my year 12 exams, and then she forgot where she hid it. When I finally got it back the joystick would move on its own.
None of the iPods my family had work right anymore and any other device is at least a hundred fucking dollars
Anyone have alternate solutions?
160 is probably over estimating the space I'd need, but I remember having one of these >>52516174, actually I think it was 8, and that was FAR too small.
Doesn't have to be Apple.
I kept one for myself should be similar specs, except one of my 4gb sticks started shitting itself and I threw a 2gbx4gb in it
seeing how many apple devices are still alive and being used i would say build quality is just as if not important than specs, I'd rather have a $1200 unibody macbook with shit specs than an i7 stuffed into a shitty enclosure made out of plastic found in happy meal toys.
If i wanted to do things other than shitpost here I can use a desktop for real performance/value
I'm still using this. god tier keyboard and decent internet browser.
and this >>52516942
for my car.
I have a first gen iPad. I only really use it to look at creepypasta on /x/ and to read if I feel like it. My phone however is taking over both of those so far. I don't really use it just kinda keep it around to look at it.
At the moment its main function is a bloons machine.
Cleaning my room, just moved my battlestation.
Did I win?
reading text on this screen gives me a slight headache after a while, but for games it's beautiful. I can turn down the resolution (i forgot what to) and push it to 140hz or 120hz (also forgot). Usually leave it at 1600x1200 75hz.
It's amazing for games, I use my laptop for studying and this for my games.

Step up kouhai
Cybiko fuckyeah. Wish my friends had this when I did, would have been fun!
It is quite a good antenna. I think it's about as good as it can get reception-wise for a small indoor antenna. I think Radio Shack sold this particular model for a very long time - from the late 1960s all the way up to the early 1980s if I recall correctly - but despite this they don't seem very common. That said, they also don't seem to have a whole lot of competition for them on eBay when they do show up. I got mine pretty cheap (less than $20 shipped I think) and it even came in the original box, proudly marked "Made in USA" from the good old days of Radio Shack. I should take a picture of it with the original box one of these days.
I think they can fetch around $150-200 these days if in good condition and proper working order. They're among the lowest wattage and thus among the cheapest of the vintage Marantz receivers.
Also one more thing about those antennas: they made them in two versions - one for FM radio and one for TV. I believe the only difference lies in the fine tuning dial in that the FM one is wired for most optimal VHF reception while the TV one is wired for both VHF and UHF reception with separated VHF and UHF connecting wires for connecting to old TVs that actually had separate VHF and UHF connections.
That reminds me, I'd like to pick up one of the TV versions but I keep forgetting to keep an eye out for one.
