    Well, we still “dial” a phone number, don’t we?

    And tape TV shows. And burn copies (anyone here old enough to know why?)

    Was that before or after mix tapes?

    No, we use the number in our contacts. And we, for the life of us, can’t remember the number without our phones. Scary how lost I’d be if I lost my phone.

    Terms like “ice box,” “Victrola,” and “Kodak” have died out or become moribund. There must be lots more, but I’m too old to remember them. Thoughts?

    Remember when the ‘wireless’ was in fact the radio?

    Yes, I grew up with an ice box, Victrola and Baby Brownie camera. I find myself saying “tape” instead of “record”.

    However, in these days, “burn a copy” refers to a laser “burning” a disc to make a copy of music, movies, or data.

    I can understand “taping” a show on the DVR, but my housemate refers to CDs as “tapes”.

    I guess “LP’s” might be making a comeback, but who remembers 45’s or 78’s?

    emptc12: In this century/millennium, we managed to find a “new” 78 turntable. Most places looked at us like we wanted a cylinder player.
    .
    whmill: Yes, and winding the wire around the oatmeal box. I am just surprised anyone else does.
