DP Daily Prompt: Going Obsolete

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

Of all the technologies that have gone extinct in your lifetime, which one do you miss the most?


The one I miss the most is the VCR. I loved the idea of taping some of the programs we used to watch, and if we liked it we’d turn on the VCR and watch it again,it was fun.

My favorite was watching the grand slam french open tennis tournament, Monica Seles was my favorite, I was ecstatic when she beat Steffi Graf. I watched the championship several times. Now the VCR  doesn’t exist but matches are still played,things are different the players have changed and I watch sometimes but that enthusiasm has dwindled.

  1. Even though there are more modern ways of recording a TV show (e.g. DVR), there is still something about using the VCR to record that you can’t duplicate with DVR.

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. I too had a VCR. Now we have a DVD player.

    It’s funny you mention tennis. I now, according to the doctor, am suffering from tennis elbow. I don’t play tennis, but suffer from tennis elbow! 🙂

    All good wishes,
