Floating around the site as I do I see people mention not using a given technology that others are shocked to not see used so I thought a topic on such a thing would be interesting. No need for a massive introduction so on to the matter at hand Things FAST6191 does not use Mobile phones- it has never occurred to me to get one/maintain one. I did have one for a couple of years (a £20 Tesco job) back when I wandering around but barely bothered to take it off charge (the very definition of landline replacement), the £10 of credit I got at the same time as the phone lasted for said 3 years and probably lapsed with most of that on it. To pre-empt "I need it for work" types while I hate doing personal examples I reckon in this case it holds as it at least shows it is possible- I play freelance IT*/engineering these days and it seems to affect nothing. *I may be the luckiest bastard in all of IT in that I only get calls for serious matters (the grim spectre of company wide IT sortouts is looming mind) and similarly there are probably others in the organisation that can take calls. Portable music players- I dislike moving with headphones in which is most of it, I do have devices that I can twist to function as such (handheld consoles and such). Microwaves- they have fun components in so I do occasionally pull them apart but as for having one I think I was given one (that I later pulled apart). RSS- never used it, never seen the need to. Social networks- GBAtemp would be as close as I get to this. For real world associates I have yet to figure out how they would provide any advantage. Credit/debit cards- the rare occasions I buy stuff online aside I only have a debit card as a cashpoint key (to the point where I will walk out of a shop to find a cashpoint if I am not sporting enough cash) HDTV- if I buy another TV (I do not watch TV these days) HDTV will still have to prove itself worthy. Lump in "high definition" media if you want as well although I will concede that if you do not know what you are doing there is a difference. Electric toothbrush- tried them on several occasions over the years, consider them no different to a throwaway brush. Allen/Inbus bolts- I have yet to find a reason for their existence. Alarm clock- I have one in a box but can not remember the last time it was powered.
