What is the earliest type of technology you remember using?

I remember loading music such as the Beatles, Iron Butterfly and other great Classic Rock onto the reel to reel player my parents had. I also recall this great record player (all controlled by stainless steel weights) my parents had. We had hundred of records with all kinds of music.

I think my grandmother also had a rotary phone too. Computer wise, we had an Apple IIC.

Now that I recall, I remember the tv we had had no remote. To change the channel, you would push in a silver button next to the number of the channel and it would slowly change. To turn the tv on, you had to pull out a knob.
