In 2017, I inherited literally tens of thousands of items and spent over a year liquidating them. I still have stuff in boxes and found these last week. This watch is SWAG from 1990 when I worked part-time at Hewlett Packard on weekends. The Disk Memory Division closed a few years later, off-shored.
My first MP3 player. I bought it for $300 at the 1999 JavaOne conference. A ridiculous purchase when a cassette player had more capacity for $30. But it was so cool.
My 2nd MP3 player. I bought it at the 1999 JavaOne conference, too. The Sony Music Clip required a specific version of Windows and I couldn't load music.
My first digital camera, 2003. Another ridiculous purchase when film cameras had higher resolution for 1/5th the price. But I could see the future. :)
