The more I look at this picture the more I’m filled with a yearning to a time I never even lived in. I love tactile tech and hate that everything is all touch screens now. There is something intimate about buttons, something satisfying about clicks of a mechanical key. Cassette tapes had a value of their own, a tape of your favourite album was a physical thing that you love, can toss to your friends to play. Now we have all our music in our phones, an album is nothing more than a folder within folders now. I wish we lived in the future the 1980s envisioned.
