Serious answer: Have a couple of casette players from the 80s and 90s. Don’t use them that often though.

Even more serious answer: Your Mum.

Our microwave was bought for us as an engagement present over 14 years ago, and it’s still going. So, that.

Our house. 116 years.

Must be my Rega Planar 2 turntable, I’ve only had it about 3 years or so - but I would assume it was made in the 80s

My N64 still gets an airing every now and then, that must be getting close to 20 years old.

Every day usage is probably my iPod, think it’s about 7 years old now.

your mum’s vib-

no, never mind

Think my printer is about 15 years old. I’ve only changed the cartridge once

Got some speakers that must be about 20 years old. Got a turntable somewhere that’s about 30 but needs some refurbishment

Just say ‘burrito’ and be done with it.

PS1 probably

I must get one of those. I had a VB-2 a few years back (bought in a guitar shop for like £70 - fools) but had to sell it to pay bills. I loved that pedal.

A house isn’t a piece of technology, mate.

Glad to help.

I’m using the same flannel I’ve had since 1982.

Washes itself.

My motorbike is 25 years old. The most advanced electronics in it is a dohickey I hooked up to charge my phone.

Piece of technology that has had the longest continual usage by me personally is my BOSS OS2 OD/ Distortion pedal. 1st pedal purchase ever when I was about 15 in 1990. Still use it.
