That's not technology, per se, but if written by Moses [note to Mods: I'm only bringing this up as a literary/historical question, so back off, pls.] it is only about 3500 years old. Written about 1500 BCE, correct? I know that guesstimates for the date of Moses' life vary some.

Oh, right, I guess you didn't mean the scroll function on the computer.

I guess you're referring to superceded technology, or yesteryear's technology?
I guess too, that would mean everyone can now disclose that their pull-cord operated Mork and Mindys' are still in use at home in the privacy of the bedroom
That's why I put the term obsolete in quotation marks.
I can also add my list - on Tuesday I bought a 1985 Honda Nighthawk with four carbs and a rear drum brake. A friend and I are going to get it roadworthy and I should be tooling around with it on the first. Then again, I still have a car with a carb and drum brakes, but I don't use it much.
SiBurning: Nice post and collection...How did you find out about computers and the internet?
Lazarus Short: You Got Me On The Scroll!!! LOL
Uncle Erik: Any chance you will be riding to the East Coast with your NightHawk? I'll take a ride!!!
I use a Motorola Razr2 V8 cellphone (Verizon). I have had it for two years and I love it. It is made with scratch-resistant glass, a soft rubberized back, and it has a heavy and rich feel to it. For me (along with the iPhone and Samsung U100) this is one of the most beautiful cellphones ever made. In the end, however, all the new smart-phones make it seem obsolete. I am going to keep my obsolete technology.
Here is a picture of the Samsung U100 (the world's thinnest cellphone). To this day, I think of it as the most beautiful cellphone I have ever owned. It was the Ferrari of cellphones. Again, unfortunately, it is obsolete technology and this GSM phone is not supported on any network here in the U.S. It is a shame.
