Some old products inspire their own little cult of nostalgia long after they're gone (who wouldn't still want to receive a telegram?) and some merely disappear, forgotten. And then there's a third category of things that you really just can't believe managed to hang around for as long as they did.

Tell us in the comments about the technology that you feel a kind of anti-nostalgia for, what about it made it so unforgettably terrible, and when the last time you happened upon it was. Pictures too, please!
