    I remember all of those. Some were remnants on the tail end of usage as "new" tech like 33's and 45's took over, others I was there for the main use. My cousins about 5 years older than me were more prone to 8 track use but I did have an 8 track player after cassettes were the norm and it was still "in" enough that it got stolen. I even had a portable transistor radio, the closest thing to pocket size if your pocket was the size of the one in modern cargo pants.

    Going back even further than carbon paper would be the ditto machines my elementary teachers would use before copy machines were invented. That was back when Nixon's picture was newly added to the row of US Presidents above the alphabet over the classroom chalkboard.

    Indeed it cost effective in the long term. Yes you may need to drop ~$150 or more for the website then a couple of bucks or so per month for hosting. But once it said and done it will bring the business ROI.

    Or more!!

    You'd be lucky to get a qualified web designer to even answer the phone for $150. You can leave a voice mail though and be sure to include your budget in the message.

    To be fair though, I guess we should qualify what is meant by a business web site. If you're looking to generate 10 or 20 bucks a month, maybe a couple hundred, or tens of thousands or higher, the definition varies. Businesses cost money to operate and a lot of business web sites out there are hemorrhaging revenue opportunity due to owners not recognizing the value of an effective web site. Those are the same business owners who will claim web sites don't work when the reality is it didn't work for them, and they'd rather not admit responsibility. All they really know is nothing substantial happened. Ironically, every example of a web failure has someone else in a nearly identical situation proving that a web site can generate lot of income.

    Meanwhile this kind of discussion happens perpetually all over the Internet which one reason I can't help being amused. We laugh when someone in a time period movie asks if telephones are really going to change the world or if there is really a future for horseless carriages, yet every generation repeats the same folly.
