    The book store ain’t going anywhere, I still prefer reading hard copies of
    book rather than staring at my phone screen. ´╗┐

  2. Vivien Ballard says:

    I miss Blockbuster :(´╗┐

  3. Terumi Kantoku says:

    Oh, no way. No freaking way digital books are better than paper books. This
    is something I refuse to give up. Nothing beats a beautiful book made of
    paper.´╗┐

  4. trexguy says:

    People should still know how to read a map. You have to use your brain
    sometimes people.´╗┐

  5. vidyaWolf says:

    All of these were improved by the internet: faster and better service, less
    waste, easy access from almost anywhere.
    But I guess some people still go to a monastery to get their book
    handwritten by a monk?´╗┐

  6. MisF1998 says:

    Books made of paper is still better than electronic one. What will you do
    if there’s no internet, low battery and no power sources near by or the
    device fell and malfunction?´╗┐

  7. Matthew Stickney says:

    I am still a proponent of paper atlas, mainly because I don’t want to rely
    on my phones battery not dying.´╗┐

  8. JacopeX says:

    Its about time the fucking paper dies. Most unethitical shit ever. This
    saves so many more trees and habitat life. Wood market still alive tho. :(´╗┐

  9. Joshua Hewitt says:

    Book stores like Barn and Nobles still exist except they sold out 25% of
    their store to starbucks and another 25% is now either legos, children’s
    toys, or a nook help center or something like that. Kinda what radio shack
    did when people stopped buying individual hardware parts…´╗┐

  11. GoobNoob says:

    I still don’t know how to get peoples phone numbers without the phone book.´╗┐

  12. Jamelle Cooper says:

    “Middle-person”? I thought the term “middle-man” was just a thing people
    said. I didn’t know it had to die the death of political correctness
    too…´╗┐

  13. Jeremy Walker says:

    Yeah, mail is totally obsolete. When i want to have something shipped to
    me, i just reach through the computer screen and grab it. No need for mail!
    Oh, Wait…´╗┐

  14. Gundam46 says:

    I can’t live without books or letters :(´╗┐

  15. Khp13sU-L says:

    I have that record player in the thumbnail, it plays radio, CDs, cassettes,
    and vinyl´╗┐

    Video killed the radio star…´╗┐

  17. matt carnes says:

    and subscription based´╗┐

  18. sleepybird09 says:

    sometimes you hust gota let go of tech and really on instinct. i drove to
    kentucky from sc folllowing my gps(garmin) needless to say the gps was
    leading me the wrong way and crashed froze up. i pull out my phone and had
    no service (forgot to pay bill) so i was left with using a compass and
    following a map i stopped to look at on the road, wrote down some
    directions and made it to my destination. not gon lie i was nervous/scared.
    but now i have lots of confidence often saying fuk a gps. ´╗┐

  19. Toa Gatanuva says:

  20. Abarnein says:

    I’m pretty sure Gamestop is still making big money´╗┐

  21. charles daniel says:

    if all the satalites one day crash and not work what then huh everyone
    huh???!!!!´╗┐

  22. Light Y. says:

    R.I.P. Radio Shack.´╗┐

  23. MASTERHUNTER666 says:

    about that music part, maybe you should fucking compare digital crap to
    analog? analog sounds waaaayyy better than digital crap, besides, most
    underground music cant be bought or downloaded from internet -.- also some
    people collect cd’s c-casettes AND vinyls, and analog sound is making
    comeback :PPP ggwp´╗┐

  24. MrMcguy101 says:
