Antique

Remember the following items, Calculator, Digital phone book, PC, iPod, Television with CRT, Corded mouse with a ball, hand held telephones with rotating dials, these were few of the items that used to be in extensive use in the past decade but now they seem to have vanished and worthy to be called as an Antique.

ImageAccording to Wikipedia “An antique is an old collectible item. It is collected or desirable because of its age, beauty, rarity, condition, utility, personal emotional connection, and/or other unique features “. The word “old” in the above definition used to denote a period of more than 100 years. This mostly was due to the pace of change earlier on. Now a days things change so fast that old has been redefined to include items even less than a decade.

The past decade has seen a lot of change in such a pace that it had been hard to keep track of which technology to name has new and which ones to be termed old.

So if you hold any of the items listed in the first paragraph do keep them for some more time and who knows they will become an collectible antique very soon.
