SURVEY: What Old Technology Do You Prefer Over Modern Technology

 
Posted May 2nd, 2014 @ 5:03am by Chilli Amar

 

 

I recently had a conversation with a friend of mine about a book store that shut down. We both felt tremendous guilt because we stopped buying books a couple of years ago after we received Kindles as gifts. I actually prefer a PAPER book over E-BOOKS...but it was much easier to "download" a book...instead of taking a trip to the bookstore or library.

 

Reddit recently asked readers WHAT OLD TECHNOLOGY DO YOU PREFER OVER MODERN TECHNOLOGY?:

 

1.  Paper books over e-books.

2.  Popcorn in a pot with oil.  It tastes so much better than microwave popcorn.

3.  Manual transmission...it's more fun to drive and easier to maintain.

4.  An old 10-cent Bic razor over an electric razor...or a six-blade vibrating razor.

5.  Walking around Blockbuster to find a movie instead of flipping indecisively through Netflix over and over.

6.  Brewing nice, regular coffee...nothing flavored and no pods or Keurig cups.

7.  Taking notes with a pen and paper, not on a laptop or a tablet.

8.  A manual can opener...one that cuts from the side, not through the top.
