Forgotten: Vertical AND Horizontal Hold

Firmly analog
London, ON
January 2016
We're often so busy keeping an eye on new and future technologies that we tend to forget about the stuff that's no longer with us. When things that were once staples of everyday life fall off the back of the modernist treadmill, they tend to do so not with a whimper, but rather in complete silence.

It often takes us years to realize they're gone - if we ever realize it at all.

Which brings me to the vertical hold control and its closely related and not-quite-as-famous sister, horizontal hold. We hardly knew you.

Your turn: Vanished technology...aaaaaand GO!
