Yes, I'm guilty of this. I tend to keep older gadgets if they are still working. I have all of my old mobile phones and other outdated tech.

I have quite a few old gadgets in my home which I keep for nostalgic purposes - including an old Atari 2600.

Wow but that’s understandable, as old consoles are being sold for very high prices these days - no point giving it away 😊

hspexy I also have loads of Atari games. But all I need now is an old TV so that I can play them again. 🕹️

As far as I am aware, the Atari wouldn't work on modern digital TVs.

RegularComper90 really? I guess that’s the same for my commodore amiga 500 then, although I’m sure we have an old tv buried somewhere in the house...lol

Wires are my thing. I can't seem to get rid of them. They seem to breed. And when I do have a throw out then I suddenly need one them.
