"Dead" Media Walking

It's an interesting thought... who actually uses obsolete technology?  Do you use a machine that uses morse code?  Do you use a telegram?  Do you even use a computer that was made in 2001?  We, humans, tend to move with the market place.  We keep pace with what sells.  If our computer or phone is starting to get outdated, you can bet we'll be in line to get a new one. 

But not everyone follows the majority.  Some are simply stubborn, while others don't even have the option.   

From Ars:
"...technologies don't always cooperate with their epitaphs. Some folks don't get the memo and just keep using obsolete gear. Some tech ends up serving niche functions. Or devices are put to purposes beyond their original design. Consider, for instance, the telegram."
