They say that you ought to never look back if you want to get ahead in life. But then, there is the school of thought that says you should never forget where you came from.
Whichever school you belong to in terms of life philosophies, I think that we can all agree that looking back to the days when technology involved huge and clunky items is something that is not to be looked down on. Don’t you pity the kids who can’t relate to diskettes, Motorola phones that can be used as self-defense, and typewriters that had tactile feedback of a whole different level? I don’t know about you, but merely thinking of these things makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
I doubt that we can bring back those days for real, but we can help feed your nostalgia with this week’s giveaway, courtesy of the folks at CafePress. They have a good collection of geeky retro swag, and we have some for your viewing pleasure today.
Regular readers, you know the drill; and if you’re new, don’t worry – it’s easy. Leave a comment (tell us what retro tech you miss most and why), tweet, follow on Twitter, and like on Facebook – you can do all those things to get more entries. Just make sure you use the Rafflecopter widget below.
The giveaway runs from today till Sunday, August 25, and we’ll be announcing the winners on Monday, August 26. Please note that the contest is limited to US-based participants. The winners can choose from any of the five items shown above.
