Today's letter C old school gadgets are Cassette Tapes, CDs and Catalogs.
Kids nowadays wouldn't even know what a cassette tape is. Well, some of them. However, there are still cars that have a cassette deck on their dashboards, and electronic stores sell an adapter that would plug a better gadget to it and play songs. Slowly, it will be like other obsolete and unused gadgets. I have this recorder I use for interviews. It has a mini-cassette tape in it. I know there are digital recorders now, but it's vintage! *laughs*
You'd probably wonder why CDs are included in this "old school" list. With music downloads booming, CDs are on the edge of goodbye. I used to buy a lot of CDs so I can play my favorite songs in the car, but with my ability to buy songs through my phone and save it on my phone disabled my purchase of CDs. Sad but true. Well, I guess not really sad. That's a lot of space saved in my book shelf at home, too.
Last but not the least, catalogs. I wish they're totally gone, but a few companies are consistent of mailing them out. I get a lot of emails promoting certain products which used to be promoted through mailed out catalogs. I prefer the emails than killing trees. I wish the catalogs would totally end and banned from being mailed out, but I guess that's just me. I wouldn't want souvenir brochures gone, though. Oh well.
