Yup, I always get the old technology they had them on sale so what the heck. Just give me back my rotary phone I had as a kid and my rabbit ears with only 3 channels that never came in clear. But not that crummy popcorn that you had to put on the stove I think it was Jiffy Pop the modern microwave stuff is better.

Well, I hear ya loud and clear... "clearance sale," eh? As far as phones... I loved when Touch Tone first came out... I thought push buttons were great. I agree with you regarding 3 channels (or 4, in Fort Worth... we had KTVT... "Texas tallest tower."). Right now I have over 150 channels... and frankly, nothing's on. And as far as popcorn... I still use the loose stuff and a favorite pan... It just works.

My TV still has rabbit ears, but more channels and no snow, just occasional digital noise.

This new I-pad is infested with the letter Q A giant Q jumped out ran around and jumped back into the screen! Last time I saw that pesky Q I was spray painting a metal beer sign in a poorly ventilated barn. When I am partying too much sometimes I see Q running around with his buddy Pinky the Elephant
