With all the electronic technology we have today, I still find myself in awe of some of the simple mechanical inventions that came before computers, iPods, and cell phones.
I am a big fan of records; there’s something special in the hi-fi vinyl sound that just isn’t heard on CD and MP3. The other day I discovered that I had a 45 adapter clip that was designed to stack and play multiple discs in succession. What a convenient little device! In the age of MP3 players, some might consider it a pain to get up and flip an LP over every 5-6 tracks, not to mention a 45 disc with 1-2 tracks per side. This simple little contraption is the pre-iTunes equivalent of a playlist creator!
