Do Tools Ever ‘Die?’

February 1st, 2011 02:43 admin Leave a comment Go to comments


An anonymous reader writes “NPR recently ran a debate between two commenters regarding the perpetual lifespan of tools… in other words, that no tool ever goes completely out of use. This debate wasn’t focused just on mechanical tools based on simple machines, but included electronics as well (vinyl record players, for example). Did you know you can still buy 8-inch floppy drives online? NPR is looking for examples of tools that have gone entirely out of use… any ideas, Slashdot?”
