* In ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' the protagonists, who are seceding from the US, are given Russian military aid in the form of a hundred T-34 tanks. As in, WWII vintage tanks. Rather than be dismayed, the protagonists praise the tanks for their ruggedness and reliability over contemporary armor (hahaha, no.) but resolve not to get into any tank battles, instead using them in raids to disrupt enemy supply lines.

** Simon Phoenix breaks into a museum because that's the only place to find a gun. After grabbing all the "outdated" 20th century weaponry he says "Wait a minute, this is the future. Where are all the phaser guns?", and goes after the future weapons (i.e., those produced before 2032). The year 2032 where, unlike today, weapons displayed in museums are fully functional and loaded.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eritrean_Railway Erithrean railway]] was built by Italian colonial authorities in the late XIX-early XX century and fell into disrepair in the ensuing civil wars. After the country gained independence from Ephiopia in 1993, the population eventually managed to repair it. Not having the resources to purchase and maintain modern running stock, they succeeded in restoring most of the surviving old units to working conditions. I.e. they are currently using ''steam locomotives'', some of which are ''more than 100 years old.''

* New computers often lack the Stereo Mix function or equivalent program that lets the sound card record exactly what comes out of the speakers. Some suspect that this is the RIAA's doing. (see Digital Piracy is Evil) Of course, older computers, many of which still run Vista or even the recently abandoned XP can still record sound just fine.
