12 obsolete technologies Americans still use

Recommended Posts

yeah , we had "call centers" too .

there were sometimes four (or more) booths located near certain barracks/areas (there was usually one or two in the BCTCAs) .

there were several located in the NCO club at ft. gordon ... they were in nice shape .

as a general rule , i found the phone booths near the quartermaster or APOs to be in good shape and work correctly .

the train depot in my hometown had one similar to the picture david posted .

I like the ones in the NCO club too, as those were usually in better shape....

I guess I am pretty much up-to-date except I do have 3 CRT TVs.

"Sometimes older technology is actually better that newer technology. In fact Superstorm Sandy proved this. While cell service was out, important gov't service related information was reliably transmitted and received over AM Radio"

Nope, the bands are loaded with no code extras. I'm not one of them. Licensed since 1968.

there are way too many "bottle licenses" as well .
