Perhaps this one will work: http://preview.tinyurl.com/yhwmw4p

(I've had good luck with http://tinyurl.com/ for shortening links.)

Anyway, that's an interesting list, but I'm not entirely sure the author has done his homework.  Take number 10 for instance.  I can't claim to be any sort of expert on radios myself, but last time I looked, transistor-based radios were still very much in use (albeit with much smaller transistors than the Sanyo 8S-P3 pictured).

Sure, no one calls them "transistor radios" anymore, but that's because it's taken for granted that all radios sold are transistor-based.  I think perhaps the author may have confused obsolete technology with obsolete terminology on that one. [shrugs]
