I feel old

I thought I was hearing things, but no, it's true: one of my colleagues just had to explain to another (younger) colleague how to use the auto-reverse function on the cassette tape player in the office.

My Walkman didn't even have an auto-reverse function, man.

However, I am too young (or perhaps my family was just not so technologically in-touch then) to know about 8-tracks.

Our first Walkman in 1984 had the auto-reverse function. It was cool later to have devices that actually kept consistent REV and FF buttons as opposed to trying to keep track of the current playback direction.
