    Was going through some old boxes and found these gems - I think the very first Blackberry and a British Psion PDA... from the 90s. Great tools that I've used extensively. Popped some AA batts in and sure enough, they still work.

    There have been a number of devices that have since come and gone, but these two were the first in the genre for me and have that sentimental value that makes them keepers.

    I have an old Ipaq, Sony Minidisc player and an IBM Licensed black Palm VX around here somewhere - along with a Ipod Mini (4gb), a Canon 1Dmk1 and 350D
    Oh and an old apple Emac from 2005 - 22kg - 1.42ghz - it is still in use though, as a music player in the shed.

    I tend to keep most of my stuff, even when its Obsolete

    Don't have any pics to contribute, please don't beat me!

    That said, went to a thrift store near work to kill time (arrived earlier than expected) and ran into a bunch of old electronics. Found a Gamecube for nine bucks, really wanted to buy it and gut it for a place to store EDC. The controller ports would've been power cord outs for electronics.

    Have way too many projects just sitting around though, got to play catch up today.

    EDIT: Dug something up. It is so old the back states "Made in USA" :p Usual disclaimer about crappy phone pic here.

    How about an old Palm Tungston C? Works, but no power cord or stylus!

    Or even a real old Sharp Wizard OZ-9500? from the late 80's or early 90's. Still works very well!

    Man, technology has sure come a long way. I see some familiar sights here, but after moving a few times the old stuff is gone. Wish I had a photo to share!

    Here's some vintage audio electronics, Harman Kardon Receiver I bought back in 1980, some Carver equipment from the late '80's thru the mid '90's and some Vandersteen and Boston Acoustic speakers from the same era.

    Or maybe a nice Soviet programmable desk calculator (uses 220 volt power!):

    (side note: At one point there was an Arabic-language directory of websites that listed my site. When I translated it back into English, "calculating instruments" came out as "insidious devices"!)
