For many years I kept a dead 1998 iMac in my closet simply because I couldn't figure out how to either activate it or remove the hard drive. (I finally just tore it apart or something; I can't recall.) Currently I'm keeping a brick of a Mac Mini (the old white-body style) sitting around because I can't access it through target drive mode or reset the PRAM or anything else that might let me erase the drive. So it's part of my permanent museum I also have a few ancient phones lying around, including a Palm device, and I watched all my TV on an old 27" CRT until last year. What old-school stuff do you have lying around the house, either in working condition or not?
