Crime, Punishment, and Typewriter Tape

We blogged a while back about how cassette tapes have found a niche in prisons, where the retro tech is considered a safe alternative to CD’s. Where else is old technology hanging on? In New York City police stations, where typewriters are still regularly used to fill out paperwork. The N.Y.P.D. spent nearly $1 million on typewriters in 2007. Just because a technology has been superseded doesn’t make it completely irrelevant. [%comments]
