Technology of the Ancients

We tend to decorate with somewhat unusual  items. Sure, we have the usual framed pictures and vases, but we also have things like typewriters, phones and cameras that are set out for decorative use (see exhibits A,B,C).

phone
Exhibit A
Here we have a vintage doughnut phone, it's mid-century and collectible. We no longer have a land line so this beauty just sits out. Occasionally Cordelia will make imaginary phone calls to Sadie, but it's purpose at this point is purely decorative.

typewriter
Exhibit B
This fine specimen is a vintage typewriter, it get occasional use, but mostly is used for decoration.

camera
Exhibit C
This is one of many vintage cameras we collect. Original use, taking pictures. Current use, cool looking dust collector.

Well, we recently had company over and they spotted our ipod (purchased in 2005) "Whoa!" They exclaimed, " I haven't seen one of those in years! Is it decoration or do you actually use it?"

ipod
Exhibit D
Apparently this 5 year old bit-o-technology that we currently use fits in with a bunch of 50year old technology. Hmmm I guess we are having trouble keeping up. What about you? Do you ride the wave of technology or are you still rocking a Walkman in a non-ironic manner?

we have/use the same ipod. We were just joking the other night about how 'vintage' it already is :)
