Once our faithful companion for any mood and occasion. We never went anywhere without our walkman. It was soon replaced by mp3 players, iPod and our smartphones

 

2 – Tape Recorder and Cassettes

 

Before there were cloud storage, CD/DVDs, and a memory card, there were tape recorders and cassettes. We all had the tape recorder at home.

 

3 – FM Radio

The only place you will find the FM radio is in the cars. FM radio has faded into history with time.

During our primitive days in India petromax was a savior. It has been replaced by the LED light and battery powered lights. Electricity conditions have been changing.

Those fat TV sets and Monitors. Although they have really deep black and terrible refresh rate we loved them. They are replaced by LCD and LED panels. TVs you can still find, but PC monitors are hard to come by.

 

9 – Floppy Disk

The most advanced floppy disk can hold 200 MBs of data. Having one during school time made you feel like an important person. CD/DVD, thumb drive, portable HDD and flash drives was the future.
