What's the oldest piece of tech you still use on a day to day basis?
For me it's my zune hd, picked one of these up the day they released and its been my only mp3 player since. For 6 years it's been able to keep up with me.

You should drink that bleach in the corner because you're poor and are a drain on society.

I'm a photographer and I use a camera from 2005. The camera was $3000 when it came out, so that means the image quality is still pretty decent for a full frame camera.

The 3000 dollar camera of today is better, but I get by. The 5d is a solid workhorse.

**autism triggered**

Op I still have my ZuneHD that I rock. I FUCKING LOVE THE USER INTERFACE! One of the reasons I haven't been able to get rid of it too is because of that aluminum case. I literally slammed this thing in a door, and its the only device that has survived this long.... why can't they make phones with the same rigidity? ):
