  1. 12 Obsolete Technologies Americans Still Use

    As long as they remain functional, I think some of these devices will be around for some time to come!

  3. A word on 'Free iPod' offers

    As mentioned in a few previous posts, the whole 'free ipod' offer, while it may not fully fit the definition of a 'scam', nonetheless is a bad thing in many ways. A recent article (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2005/03/18/BUGURBP6N353.DTL&type=tech) on...

  17. Copying VHS to DVD

    I would like to make a copy of a VHS tape into a DVD. The content on this VHS tape is a home movie, not a feature film. Has anyone else ever done this? If so, where do you go to have it done? How long did it take? What did it cost you? I do have a DVD player as well as a VHS player.

    I've been thinking about this for quite a while due in large part to the fact that with so much of my hearing about cancer I can't help but wonder about new technology mixed with the fact that I've read that micro waves from space are very much cancerous so I ask!
