Do you have some retro tech tucked away, forgotten in a box in your attic or basement? You remember that Game Boy you used to play all the time, threw in a box, and forgot all about it? How about your old iPod classic? Or those CRT TV’s with the VCR/DVD combo on the bottom? Or that lethal weapon known as the Nokia 3210? All of this retro tech could fetch you a few bucks if you’re willing to part with them.

I’m sure that there’s not one person who’s reading this website that hasn’t used at least one of the retro tech items in the infographic below. They bring back memories for many of us. I sure remember how proud I was of my Sony Discman, that was the thing to have. CDs were the future, no more cassette tapes and no more sticking pencils in them to get them back on track. CD quality audio changed the world and CDs were here to stay. Of course now we’re streaming everything from Apple Music, Pandora, Google Play Music and Spotify so CDs are starting to die a slow death themselves.

How about that old Apple Macintosh 128K? Many people’s first experience was with a Macintosh, and many remember those old beige clunky boxes that we all threw in the basement and forgot about. Who else had a Casio calculator watch besides me? There’s still people that actually use those.
