A mechanical pencil is a tech product?
Can you make one with stone knives and bear skins? But seriously, compared to having to "advance" the lead by grinding down the case of my primitive Ticonderoga, I thought my first mechanical pencil was a technological wonder.
And after all, we're talking about long-lasting technology. The longer it lasts, the older it gets, right? If someone were still using their great-great-grandpa's John Deere steel(!) plow bought from his blacksmith shop in Grand Detour, I guess that would win.
