I got a vintage shoebox tape recorder for my birthday! Here’s a video I made of unboxing and playing a tape for the first time.

I had one very similar to that. My father came back in 1989 with a box full of junk he bought from a flea market. Among the stuff found there was an old tape player recorder like that. It wasn’t a gift to me; it was just there, but I took it over. I taped music and made radio shows with my friends. I taped a lot of Beatles and industrial techno on them. I still have the tapes. Towards its end of life, the play button wouldn’t stay down, so I would stick pieces of paper to make it play.
I used it through grades 7 to 11 until 1993, when my older sister bought me a better player. I left Mexico 1994, so that tape player was left behind. I don’t know what happened to it.
Thanks for the jogging those memories :)

Is the 2012 Beetle, the “3rd Gen Beetle”, really a neo-retro car like its predecessor, the “New Beetle”? Or is it just a funky European hatchback?
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy was probably the coolest text adventure game out in 1984, and it came in box full of random cool stuff.
Minidiscs are simply cool, right? This is partially because of Sony’s amazing commitment to style and distinctiveness.
How are those evasive “Dick Tracy” wristwatches we were promised coming along? Well, we have truly connected wrist communicators coming around the bend: “smartwatches”.
