Okay, here is an oldie but a goodie… a blast from my past. It is a 4 track tape player. I remember when I got my first tape deck for my car, it was so exciting that I was going to be able to purchase tapes of the records that I loved and listen to my favorite music in the car.
My tape deck plugged into a drop down frame below my dashboard. I was able to remove it when I left the car so no one would steal it.. how cleaver.
With the speed at which technology was changing, as it does today, not too long after installing my 4 track guess what came out? Yes, the eight track tape decks.
I was reminded of the 4 and 8 track tape decks recently by a patient who came into my office. We were having a nice discussion of our younger years and the technology we have today. One of my younger co-workers (20 something) was also in the room and when we talked about these tape decks she had no idea what we meant. In fact, she did not even have a cassette tape player. She was of the CD age.
My time does fly doesn’t it?
