Vintage geekery is something of an obsession here — as much as we tech-lovers love to have the latest gadget, we also pay respect to the originals. Many times I have been close to breaking down and buying a beautiful, brightly colored typewriter, even though I would only use my laptop for word processing.
I mourn the loss of Polaroids with as much intensity as I scrutinize the latest megapixel-packed digital camera. And I surf Amazon for new games for my PS3, only to peruse eBay for an old Atari, so I can scoop up my favorite old games.
Clearly a thirst for nostalgia and the cutting edge can live simultaneously, so tell me — what's your favorite vintage tech?
