Stuart Mario writes, "Whilst clearing out my loft last week, I noticed a device my eyes barely recognized. Caked in dust, its foreboding chassis sat heavy in my hand. It was my old MP3 Player; I thought I’d thrown it out. Several hours later, my cleaning led me to some other archaic devices from years past: a camcorder, a one megapixel camera and a brick I used to call ‘phone’. The demise of these once beloved machines is a callous reminder that the devices I rely on everyday may soon join that collection, and a lot sooner than I was prepared for."
