Joining other discarded technologies of late, including the Flip video camera, Kodachrome, and the humble floppy disk is the typewriter, which will no longer be produced anywhere in the world.
I haven't used a typewriter in over 20 years but somehow I feel a little sad about this. Maybe it's because I enjoy writing so much and have always liked the idea of the stressed out writer locked up for weeks alone in a crappy motel room with his old typewriter and a bottle of cheap whiskey writing a masterpiece. I guess masterpieces these days are written on a MacBook Air by someone sitting at a Starbucks sipping on a decaf soy frappuccino. Times change.
