"The best way to predict the future is to invent it."
Alan Kay
Back Remember these?
If you do you're showing your age! Vinyl 45-rpm records, played on a stylus-based "record player," were cool in their day. The same fate awaited a plethora of gadgets that were also one-time symbols of sophistication.

In some cases, the tiniest-of-tiny garnered status. In others, the largest-of-large was cool:

Taking a cue from Alan Kay's banner quote above, many did try to predict the future with invention, in a manner of speaking. However, we already know the fate of vinyl LPs, cassette & 8-track tapes, and laserdiscs. Eventually CDs, DVDs, VCRs, camcorders, digital video recorders, telephones, cell phones, desktop and laptop PCs, PDAs, calculators, palm-sized and hand-held computers, game machines, digital tablets, digital cameras, digital music players, portable document/book readers, Internet phones, iThingies, room-sized TVs, wristwatch-sized TVs, pen-sized phones/computers and the many variations of body-piercing microchips all made the scrap heap.
