Hey! That wasn't all that long ago, am I right?

Just like Apple to remove the Radar Detector in the iOS 12 update.

Yep, the radar detector is the one exception to OP's statement.



It is what it is.

That would be cool, though many phones would be illegal then on the road.

Jeebus Apple doesn't even put a CD player in a Mac anymore let alone in a phone.

I've got a Heathkit digital clock in the guest room. It has kept flawless time since I made it when I was a teenager, probably around 1971-2 as I remember my interests. Surprisingly, to me, they have a website with kits. I wonder if it's the original or if it's been sold to somebody: [shop.heathkit.com]

Dad made a Heathkit radio transmitter. My brother and I broadcast (for one afternoon) at show that we think might have transmitted as far as the house next door.

Other than the fun for an electrical engineer constructing it, I have no idea why he bought and built the unit.

When I went to Vietnam, I ordered a Dynaco FM receiver and a Dynaco amplifier and had the parts sent to Day who built them and had them ready for me when I got home. He was one happy guy all those nights putting those together (including a lot of problem solving due to missing or non-working parts).
