There seems to be a shift in this thread from "products that are gone" to "products that are still around, but I remember fondly".

Well, this might fit both categories. They don't make these anymore, but I still use the hell out of mine. If a product could possible be too ahead it's time, this would be it. Automatic commercial skip, internet sharing ability, streaming from one unit to another, ability to archive TV shows to a networked computer. The list goes on. All this in a model that is nearly ten years old. If only it could handle HD.

Well, most of them are probably a case of certain things not being available in their region anymore.

A local thing. They don't make them any more - when they dried out they tended to break teeth.

Re: Products gone but not forgotten

my 3 all-time favorite cereals:





Smores kind of exists as "Smorz" now, but it's not the same
Same thing with other "Honey Bunches" cereals....

I still have one with lifetime service. Can you still get the guides or is it manual record only? I think I'm missing the cord for the machine.

Guides still update daily and the best thing is that Poopli is still up and running.

Anyone remember this:



Yup, had one. And you are right about Lite Brite still being around:

I don't think it uses those one-use black pieces of paper anymore though.

I will one up you... Back when they used to show classic black and white movies as an attraction for customers. Yup...even though I was a wee lad at the time, I recall going with my family to one in the Twin Cities that did this. Back in the early good old days of the chain.
