    Default Low Tech Vs Hi-Tech

    What's best the lastest gadget, or that clunky machine you've always relied on?

    The reason I ask is I started the bank holiday weekend sings my lungs out in the shower to Guns N Roses - Appetite for Destruction (on tape no less!) courtesy of some kick ass ceiling speakers. A classic old album on a now defunct format, played through some fairly new tech (cutting holes in your bathroom ceiling to fit these is not for the faint hearted!!)

    I still own one stereo with a tape deck, plus a VCR and a decent collection of videos, that does probably date me as something other than a twentsomething I guess. Yet I have a full HD 37" with SKY HD subscription but haven't invested in Blu-Ray (maybe because I can't be arsed to replace all 350 dvd's?) or even upgraded my Nokia E71 to an Iphone!

    Must be crazy for some folk who have seen the birth and death of various technology. It is funny when I watch old tv shows from say the 80s and 90s when mobile phones weren't as popular/advanced as they are today. These big friggin' bricks people carried around with them with no signal.
