Like a broken record

Isn’t it funny how language can serve to keep discarded tech going? That’s one of the things I caught myself thinking when I heard someone say ‘you sound like a broken record’. It’s like kids clicking on an image of a floppy disk to save their work without having a clue as to what that icon is supposed to represent (of course, this is one that is beginning to look like it will solve itself, as saving too is a process that seems to be about to go the way of the dodo, which is itself a creature too many of us are only barely aware of, one we would be hard pressed to identify even as a taxidermy exhibit).
