The mouse becomes obsolete in 2015 with a heavy dash of tongue-in-cheek humor.

I didn't appreciate that list. Some of those object are NOT obsolete. Anyway the author should consider that many of those object worked for decades with high succes and minimal restyling or maintenance. This is manly because of the loss of digitalization and microchips. This is a loss value in this digitalized world. I wonder if those iPhones will still works when we'll be granpa and granma. Anf by the way I still use typewriter , radio receiver, music tape and more... Furbessem

Not a single one of those items is obsolete. Just because something isn't as widely used as it once was doesn't make it obsolete. Example: the fax machine is still required in all law offices to get signed documents from people who can not make it to the office. Phonographs are still fairly widely used by audiophiles and have actually increased in sales over the last two years. Manual beaters are still sold in most cooking store and used by a lot of people. Even the quill & abicus are still used. That site is so full of fail it isn't funny.

I thought the mis-dial, hang up, start over on the rotary telephone was a nice touch.

I agree that many, if not most, of these items are still in use today. I still liked it though. Maybe it's supposed to make you feel like a time traveller? And what would you do if you could visit the year 2220? Why, go to a museum to look at old stuff of course! And buy hoverboards...
