From Old School to Tech Cool

┬áBack in April something happened here at CNET that has never happened before: a TV was given a perfect 5 stars, as well as an Editors’ Choice Award. We don’t throw around “Spectactular” reviews all willy nilly, so this was a big deal. Such a big deal in fact, we decided to give our users a chance to win* one for their very own.

However, we aren’t going to make this too easy! We want you to share a photo of your old outdated tech. Simply snap a photo of your retro tech, “like” CNET on Facebook, and enter it into the CNET From Old School To Tech Cool Contest on Facebook. It can be anything from your vintage T-Bird to the Walkman you jogged with in the ’80s. As long as it is appropriate and has an on/off switch, we want to see it! Remember that photography counts for something. If we can’t tell what it is, it may not be a winner. We suggest (but you are not limited to) one electronic device per entry. You can submit as many photos as you’d like by the submission end date.

Then start sharing; you can vote for your favorite entries (even if you didn’t submit one) once per day until July 10. At the end of the voting period, CNET’s TV editor David Katzmaier will pick a lucky winner from the 10 finalists with the most votes.

So dig in the back of the attic, under the bed, or at the bottom of your desk drawer and show us what you’ve got!

  1. I already operate a 12″ Autotek “mean machine” sub from the 500 watt boss amplifier, it’s deep sub range. I wish to add my other 500 watt boss amplifier they are driving my new sub (American Professional WS-1412) like a mid bass. The speaker is within an enclosed enclosure contributing to 1.5 cubic ft. Does anybody know anything about these loudspeakers? Must I then add packing popcorn? The speaker is ranked at approximately 100 continuous and 450 peak.

    To include: Truck is really a full-sized Dodge 2dr p/u…w/ full-sized sub box behind the chair. Two 6×9 as well as in separate enclosed boxes under chair. In charge amplifier is placed to nearly cheapest setting….I believe just above 45 hz….So as you can tell, i’m looking for more midbass. I favor 12’s because of the solid “hits” they produce. And packing peanuts can be used to tune an enclosed box without another kind of baffling. Second amplifier is going to be set to some greater hz, or possibly stay at flat level having a cap put into retard high freq.

  2. Hello! I wish to perform a awesome chemical reaction for that oneness ceremony inside my wedding. I’d enjoy having a liquid (or two mix) use solid or mix two obvious fluids to produce a colored one however i aren’t able to find any particulars which chemical is going to do this where I possibly could locate them. Anybody have ideas? Thanks in advanced!

    Used to do pretty much, however i kinda question why my children don’t understand how awesome I still am, damnit! I stated to my 8 years old boy which i think I am pretty stylish. His reply was, “Yeah, stylish alternative!” And why the hell does an 8 years old understand what a stylish alternative is???
