Agreed. That's one of my favourite obsolete technologies too.
Another thing I'm starting to miss is pay phones. They're hard to find anymore. I don't have a cell phone.
I had a cell phone, but the day I retired I put it away in a drawer, where it remains to this day. When I was attending meetings out of town and expecting to be getting home late, I could call my wife and let her know.
Often I went to Mitchell, a small town in Western Ontario. Cell phones didn't work there. Too far from the network. So I had to use the pay phone. The only pay phone in the town was inside The Crown of Thorns, the town's bar.
So when I called my wife from there and she could hear that I was calling from inside a bar, I always had an explanation she had to believe.
