Let's post technology for boomers ITT
>>70161205tell me im not old anon
Does software count? Holy shit do boomers love Excel. If you work in an office environment with a boomer, they'll use Excel for anything. They never actually use formulas or scripting. They just put text into the cells and resize it to make pretty tables, but god damn do they want to send around Excel files for fucking everything. I once tried to explain what version control does (Subversion at my work place) and a boomer asked me why we use some obscure software they've never heard of before and just track it all in Excel.
>>70160483This is a bad thread
>Mom, your phone already has a camera in it that's better than that one>I know it doesn't have a viewfinder, but... uhh nevermind.
It's scary to think, but I imagine there are people browsing /g/ right now who have no idea what this is.
>>70161344Fuck, I need a controller like this to play Sega Genesis games properly.
>>70160619This, mono is better.
>>70161379Overhead projector, I remember my teachers used them in elementary school before they started getting smart boards in like 2010. They'd go over worksheets on it and they'd write on these cool transparent versions of them.t. zoomer
they remove "," and put backspacefucking retards
>>70161379Pfft, that one looks newer than any of the ones we ever had. Too much molded plastic. They broke out an ancient slide projector when it came time to show the STD pictures in Health class.
>>70161379everybody knows what a retroprojector is faggot
when i'm in a room where one of these things is on it feels strange how normies still passively stare and listen at the awful crap and 10 minutes of ads every 20 minutes or solow iq people get especially obsessed with lottery game shows where people win crap
>>70161379we call that "infocus" here
>>70161269too bad no case actually looks like that..
>>70161541bread and circus fiddling etc
>>70161541Yeah it must be the TVs themselves. I think you're on to something.
>>70161263Literally nothing wrong with excel you fucking NEET. I hate boomers too but excel is an extremely useful piece of software.
>>70160483I unironically own and use one of these.
>entering numbers in a spreadsheet without a numberpadkill yourself nigger
>>70161379What? School I went to like 5 years ago had these in almost every classroom.
>>70161801Why is this refrigerator on its side?
>>70161801Highest selling video game console of all time
>>70161801They call it a PS2 because when you see it, you turn 2pi radians and walk away.
>>70161379my ochem prof used this instead of a whiteboard. best prof i ever had. if i ever have to teach classes i'm busting out this boomer tech
>>70162468>when my uni replaced the analogue Siemens oscilloscopes with 100% digital onesEven some of the teachers agreed they were either shit or overkill for what we used them.
>>70162468We have used digital oscilloscopes for more than a decade.Why would anyone want analog these days?
>>70161379Overhead projectors are great, most of the time smart boards are overkill for the stuff you want to do with them
>>70162576>2 valve pushrodits like a tractor engine from the 1940s lmao
>>70160483i didnt know this existed. i always wanted to get one of those small keyboards without a numpad so i could position it better against my big mousepad but didnt want to give up the numpad (i use it all the time). might get one of these to put off to the side
>>70162831Don't get the boomer cheap retractable cable one, they have mechanical ones
>>70161541The absolute irony of the entirety of this post is staggering.
>>70162852watch out, some of them send the scancodes for regular numbers instead of numpad numbers. Most things don't care but some things differentiate. I have a Leopold numpad with cherry blues that does this.
>>70162939Do any send actual numpad numbers? I can't do the alt+numpad ASCII characters with mine.
>>70162831>i always wanted to get one of those small keyboards without a numpad so i could position it better against my big mousepad but didnt want to give up the numpad (i use it all the time).Get yourself a programmable keyboard.
>>70162970If you got one with QMK firmware you could program it to send numpad scan codes.
>>70162521Higher resolutionXY mode
>>70161814This. It's got a very low barrier of entry, which is why boomers love it. Haven't seen a single boomer properly use excel though, and most of 4chan doesn't know it's uses either.
>>70161379Ayyy the middle finger projector
>>70161801>tfw when I was the first person in my entire school to buy one
>>70164261Demented and refuses to take his pills
>>70161205These are still fucking convenient.Fucking computers with no disc trays annoy the shit out of me.
>>70161263I used one of these recently.Honestly, use an up to date VBA manual instead. Excel without VBA is for masochists.
>>70162664Verbatim is the pinnacle of DVD reliability, retard.
>>70161269These will resurge more when people realise it's convenient to be able to mod the inside of what is in the case.
Does using a fuckton of periods as ellipsis count as technology? Shit, even my dad does it....... and he's 46 and otherwise very articulate.... pisses me off........
>>70160483Pretty handy for a POS you know.
>>70161379Still useful.People using powerpoints in class tend to release them to kids and so the kids never took proper notes and didn't learn shit.
>>70164484are you kidding me? Why would you ever use that over a flash drive?
>>70162939>some of them send the scancodes for regular numbers instead of numpad numbersWait, seriously? Thats a new level of retarded if true.
>>70161801I hate my mother for leaving mine out in the rain "accidentally".I DON'T BELIEVE YOUR LIES YOU WHORE.
>>70164534Because you still have CDs and shit you want to burn.Because content played on a Blu-ray player tends to play better than on a disk drive.
>>70161379More handy and reliable than computer+powerpoint+projector.>tfw I was the first kid in class to print out images/graphs etc. from the internet to plastic sheets (or whatever they were called) and used them for a presentation on an overhead projector.I got mad pussy that day.
>>70164542be a shame if something of hers were to be left in the rain... just saying...
>>70164577Just leave her in the rain when she's old.
>>70160483Having it on your keyboard is still quite handy tho
>>70164526taking notes is overrated
>>70164577She does like that new sofa set of hers...
>>70164614No it isn't. Hand writing the notes has proven to be more effective than typing the notes. We don't learn as much from typing things. We tend to just copy.When hand writing, you paraphrase things to make writing it quicker, hence you need to understand it to paraphrase it.
>>70160483So boomer technology is all the stuff that actually works and is convenient. Wow, really opened my eyes.
>>70162359>turn 2pi radians and walk awaybruh how do i into measurement of rotation n shieeet
>>70165177That's the fuckin joke you troglodyte, haven't you heard people say "turn 360 degrees and walk away" before
>>70161328My nigga. Zip drives were amazing back in the day.
>>70161379Schools still use them except now they use USB attached ones.
>>70165197yes, mainly americans, after which they might be heard to remark that they "could care less"
>>70165197>i was only pretending to be retarded
>>70161379This is some Blade Runner tier analog tech.I remember one of these in math classroom. But it was used like once in a while just to show an opened book or something. Because we had smart boards and projectors since like 2008
>>70165275I can't tell if this is serious or the next step of bait in the joke.
>>70161205Useful for drivers on new builds
>Is that an wifi cable?
>>70161269I like that case actually
>>70161263no, there some truth here alright. Misusing excel as dbase, fair enough, thats traditional. But using it (solely) instead of word, then getting creative and DTP'ing etc, needs vehemently discouraged. Its MS fault, can probably google 'how to add autoplay vdeos to excel cell?' and shit, complete nonsense
>>70165311I had new teachers use this because it taught kids better.
>>70161801I have one of these with a cfw hdd to play ace combat on my TV. Bluetooth hooked up too to play wirelessly with a ps3 controller.
>>70161294vtec just kicked in
>>70165457A boy falls in love with a girl
>>70161541Now I miss watching the price is right with my buddy in the college dining halls when we'd meet up for lunch
>>70160483Fuck you dude. My numpad's 2 key broke and I can't play most roguelikes without one of those
Can't believe nobody has posted THE COOLEST FUCKING PIECE OF TECH EVER I WON'T BE CONVINCED OTHERWISE FUCK YOU THIS IS THE FUTURE
>>70161541>blaming the tech rather than what people use it forA TV is just a display like a monitor, what you display on it is entirely your prerogative
>>70164551imagine buying movies, what a boomer
>>70164500People realize that... they just lazy as fuck to bother with it.
>>70164678>Taking notes at all
>>70164484... u talkin smack bout my no-disk-tray computer, bitch?..
>>70164499I didn't say it was unreliable, you fucking imbecile
>>70160483I used one of those for my directional controls in counter strike. Then I could position my arm wherever I want without having to move my keyboard at a weird angle or something
>>70165726That thing is a godsend in my 04 Hyundai Sonata, radio-based adapters are garbage
>>70165211CLICK POP POP POPyou were saying?
>>70161424Same here, I remember the first smartboards in our school were only in the art department. What dumbasses, we never used them.
>>70162505Ours run windows, and I emailed a pic of it to stallman. I wished that I saved the screenshot of him chimping out
>>70165726this is just tech for anybody with a shit car
>>70160483HAM radiosucks that it isn't as popular now, its the original decentralized communication, and relies on no infrastructure.
>>70160483A computer used for anything but playing videogames.
>>70161269Am I boomer if I think this actually looks decent. Minimalist black is pretty based
>>70161379>take an LCD screen apart>put the panel on an overhead projector>cheap ghetto LCD projectorI did this
>>70161379During my time at school they were just getting smart boards installed and early on they would project a worksheet transparency from an overhead on the smart board along with the computer and they would use the smart board software to “write” on the worksheet displayed by the overhead
>>70161801While we're at it; pic related>>701623592πrad is 360° you Brain = O

>>70166433Oh man. Holy shit. I remember.
>>70168896Look at this fucking guy. "Smart boards"? Fuck outta here money bags richie rich ass nigga.
>>70168896Yeah same here. Those smartboards were pretty shitty too.
>>70161391Sega and Retro Bit came out with new ones, both with USB and original connector.Theirs also the Hori Fighting Commander. It's not the same but you can find it in stock. :^)t. /vr/
>>70170827The ultimate zoomer post right here. Someone give him an award.
>>70165726Nah, the boomer thing would be recording mixtapes and using them.
>>70170938cool clock Ahmed
>>70161391Why aren't six face-button controllers popular any more? So much better than four!
A set top box is a subset of what a computer is.
>>70171763No, all top boxes are a subset of all computers.
>>70161263My professor for AI gave us neural network examples that he built in Excel it was pretty cool to watch.
at this point, everything that dont have a touchscreen and flashy LEDs and the interface of interaction is composed of knobs and printed info on the surface, is boomer tech
>>70165773imagine being poor
>>70162664Dual layer? Thats too overkill
>>70165829It's more like fear. Some people genuinely don't want to open their case because it's too spooky for them. I managed to get a reputation as a computer expert solely based on the fact that I was able to add a new HDD to someone's PC.

>>70168477It’ll be popular again when people reject the surveillance state. It’s the only real way to get unfiltered news transmissions from other countries.
>>70161814Excel can be very handy for light business automation without using a "traditional" programming environment but it falls flat as soon as people who don't understand the difference try to use it like a relational database, or worse yet the example in >>70161263 where they use it for a purpose that's already served a thousand times better by dedicated tools; it's just powerful enough to get people to try to do big things in it and not realize that they're painting themselves into a corner
>>70161379My college still had a few of these on rollers but I only ever saw the math department use them while everyone else used Powerpoint
What's wrong with having a numpad? There's software that uses them as quick convenient shortcuts.I'm definitely new here so can someone explain?
>>70161379isn't this a camera used by the faggots on instagram

>>70172795You don't understand. Nobody was against new technology, but where it was used. They were great for more "advanced" tasks like opamps or rpm metering (especially the "one click" export screen as image to USB, fuck messing with retarded mmpapers), but they were total ass and overkill for the ultra basic digital technics and metrology lab I. classes.

>>70172414smart boards are just a meme admin boomers use to either pretend they’re in touch or smuggle school funds into their slush account. a white board and a document projector are all you needyou’d be amazed at the amount of faculty that think they’re being progressive by requesting gimmick tech in classrooms that nobody needs instead of getting something more practical like new textbookst. went to rich public school

>>70184955Yeah, Discipline sounds more like a Talking Heads' album but it has some real King Crimson parts.The max resolution on this monitor is 1280x1024, so it's just like most of the displays from that time. And it's actually pretty bad. The colors are washed out, especially on the borders. I don't see how CRTfags can praise this stuff but maybe they have better displays than this one.
