    What analog tool will you never swap for the digital alternative?

    Just seen this topic on lifehacker, pen was a popular option.

    Any suggestions?

    Post it notes for me I think, any app just doesn't cut the mustard

    My ding-a-ling. I'd be happy on a Star Trek style holodeck for a bit of nookie though.

    Nothing, in terms of stuff. Data is the future!

    i do back up data but it's not the same as having something physical in your hand

    Couple of months ago I would of said a book, but after using the e-ink screen on the Kindle.. I can't see myself reading another paperback again.

    So mine would be woman, I really don't fancy having a digital lady

    Maybe, but what if your house burns down or you are burgled :-p

    Those of us with our data stored in the cloud always have a backup ready :-D

    What about the Star Trek Holodeck type digital women where it is just like reality. Imagine being able to nail any woman in the world you like or creating your ideal woman - she will be programmed to meet all your needs and desires and will never say no

    If I may be pedantic, analogue is not the opposite of digital, so pretty much everything in this thread is wrong. And what Waycash said just makes me want to cry. CDs are digital, spaz...

    No one said opposite? A 'digital' steering wheel (xbox pad? :)) is different from a traditional one, not necessarily opposite

    But yea, a cd is digital
