In today’s video, we go through old tech items that we can’t get rid of, from VCRs to watches to landlines.

After holidays and summer traveling and general Garfield-esque Monday aversion, we’re back to the Monday schedule for new episodes of the 11 Points Countdown web series. Today’s topic had some of the more surprising poll results to date — it’s 11 Outdated Tech Items We Still Use Today.

My co-host this week, back for his second time, is comedian Jacob Sirof.

If you enjoy, please take a moment to subscribe to my 11 Points Countdown YouTube channel. Thank you, as always, for your support.

Here are the full results of the poll. The top 11 are in white to avoid spoilers, just highlight to view. (If you’re on an iPhone/iPad, you may have to copy these, then paste it somewhere, until I think of a more elegant spoiler-proofing solution.)
