As we all rush to embrace this month's newest, hottest technology, it's easy to forget about the old technology that's being pushed aside. Who among you is holding vigil for the portable CD player or the CRT computer monitor?

Yet, I'm old enough now to remember a time when I couldn't wait to make the jump from my creaky, old Walkman to a shiny, thin portable CD player. In the grand scheme of things, that day was not so very long ago.
