Abstract:

A recent trend on eBay and at flea markets is the buying and selling of old technology--transistor radios, video games, Betamax video recorders. While made of plastic, wires, and metal that earlier seemed to have little of the romance of the "antique," this trend proves that these objects from the sixties, seventies, and eighties have acquired status as collectibles. Here is the guide to what technology from the last half of the 20th century is collectible. This is the only book to catalogue and depict the full range of objects, and gauge the correct price levels. It mourns all the gadgets from adolescence ever thrown away, and will start you wondering how much that brand-new iPod will be worth in a few decades.--From publisher description.
