Take a wander through the gadget graveyard
A musical based on the short life of Jade Goody is probably a very bad idea but it’ll doubtless be incredibly successful.
On the other hand, inventions like the Sony Walkman, Polaroid cameras and VCRs were all very good ideas and were incredibly successful but have had their day. The passage of time and the advancement of technology meant that they were eventually chewed up and gobbed out into the spittoon of history. Not like Jade Goody – she’ll live forever in our hearts.
Over at brainz.org, they’ve compiled magazine ads for some of the dead-as-a-dodo gizmos that we used to love – also including dial-up internet and the MiniDisc. Is anyone making a bloody musical about them? Bloody don't think so.
