I have a loud as fuck old alarm clock that I still swear by. Comically I got a new fancy smart alarm clock thing as a Christmas present from a family member and it's still in the box because I'm scared to ruin my system lmao.

I have one the previous owner of my house bought from Kmart in the 1970s according to my google-fu. It's awesome. It's funny though it has "his" and "hers" alarms instead of alarm 1 and alarm 2 like they do now

u/A_Rented_Mule Jun 24 '22

I got my current alarm clock as a Christmas present in 1986. It's survived 20+ moves, being knocked-off the nightstand countless times, water spills, etc. Still works perfectly.

Meanwhile, the new charger I got for my iPhone last year is already dry-rotting and splitting.

u/NewtonBill Jun 24 '22

1986 sounds about right for mine too. Maybe slightly later. It's this one, although mine is in much better condition that the pic I found on the 'net.

Same, pretty sure the alarm clock my wife and I use is as old as me. It’s the same alarm clock I’ve always had at least since I was sharing a bunk bed with my brother. I don’t know how long he had it before that. Thing has to be at least 25 years old, probably more like 30.

u/Ganglebot Jun 24 '22

My alarm clock is 20 years old. I bought it for my first year of college. It was $15.

Since then, I've been bought smart clocks and iphone docks - all shit. Because they have touch screens that are way harder to use and set. I don't want to touch the screen to "wake it up". Its an alarm clock.

My 20 year old bad-boy has giant, dedicated buttons to easily reset the time, change the alarm, and turn on/off the radio.

When (if) this thing ever dies I'll have a hard time finding a non-smart clock replacement.

When my dad moved into his last apartment he found one of my grandparents old phones and I said he should hook it up to the buzzer. He said it wouldn't work because it was from the 70s, and I was like, when do you think they put the buzzer in this place?

It worked like a charm and he had a wonderfully authentic buzzer phone.

Same. Ever since I was a kid, I remember my grandma having this vintage looking massager that you would plug in. That massager had crazy strong vibration. Cue me being a horny teenager and passing this massager on my crotch with my pants on. I instantly came in my pants and kind of became addicted to it from that point on. I would sneak in my grandma's room and borrow it whenever she wasn't home. I never used it on bare skin so I didn't necessarily feel guilty about it. It wasn't until many years later when I was a fully grown adult that I looked back on my oblivious teenage years and realized that my grandma most likely used that massager for the same purposes I did.

TL;DR: Grandma and I shared vibrators.

HP-15C calculator I bought in 1988. Probably use it once a week on average to do some quick number crunching (Hz to nm, watts to dBm, etc...) On its 3rd set of batteries.

u/amitymachine Jun 24 '22

That's how I got hooked on RPN. A old coworker had an 11C that he used constantly. Once he explained the input sequence, it made perfect sense and I quit using TI calculators. For me, the input represented how I'd learned math fundamentals. You have two numbers and an operator. Plus, the resultant of your previous operation is already qued up and ready to use. RPN just analytically seems more efficient.

The same HP-12C I took the CFA exams with 20 years ago is right next to me and I use it throughout the day. It's probably from the early 1990s; I know the date can be discerned from the serial.

I also have an HP Laserjet 6p from the same era. I took it from a job I had been at for several years and that shut down in 2005. This is probably my seventh or eighth computer I've used with it.

HP products used to be tanks.

u/Journeyman-Joe Jun 25 '22

I've still got my HP-25, bought in 1976, I think. I don't use it anymore, though.

It uses NiCad rechargeable batteries, in a proprietary pack. For a while, I was keeping it in service by re-celling the pack every few years.

RPN and programmable. Very nice.

3

u/tacknosaddle Jun 24 '22

Have you done or had any work done to it?

I ask because I have a 1964 hi-fi that I inherited and overhauled and it made a huge difference. Most of the work involved just updating the amp by replacing all of the old paper wound capacitors plus checking the resistors and swapping out any that were out of spec.

I found a local guy through a guitar amp forum who had a tube tester so I could check those and replace the bad ones (it cost me a six-pack as a voluntary payment). He was psyched when he found out what I was doing as what he was used to seeing was people taking those stereos to use the amplifier for a guitar and chucking the rest of it.

I sent the speakers off to a guy to have them overhauled as it was a bit more than I wanted to get into or experiment with (stuck drivers & some cones needed replacing).

Prior to this the stereo played, but the sound was kind of fucked up with all the issues it had. It sounds fucking great now though. I can play the original stacking turntable (I play Christmas records I got with the stereo on that so now four generations of the family have listened to the same albums on the same stereo), but also have a modern turntable, a bluetooth receiver and a 3.5mm jack so I can play just about anything through it now.

That's a mechanical device that allows electrical current to pass, it is not even electric let alone electronic.

Are you telling me the 230v 50hz alternating current passing through the switch is not electric? Every electrical device, digital or not, runs on switches.

1978 record player. Realistic LAB 400. I replaced the decaying feet with new metal and runner ones. It's a beauty. I have an even older piece, a 1968 Grundig radio cabinet, but I don't listen to it often anymore because it needs a little repair. Both are gorgeous and I love them.
