    SONY did not even make calculators in 1979. And the phone ... that's relatively new, part of a 6 handset remote system offering intercom and caller ID through a speaker, so I don't have to get up of my lazy ... well, I can ignore the phone if I want to. I am pretty SONY doesn't have one of these.

    Sony Ericson has some decent phones. A bit big, but they pack a decent camera.

    Just got in to look at this thread. I have used a linux live cd recovery cd on a drive before, and even got all of the (some less than appropriate) pictures and documents from the previous owner. But this was a working drive that had been formatted when it shouldn't. Broken drives are different. If the files aren't SUPER important, and it hasn't yet started clicking, you could consider trying some sort of recovery software yourself, but it might involve linux CLI stuff. However in many cases if a drive is having mechanical failure you will probably not get any results, and could decrease the chance of a drive recovery company having much luck. The good news is that typically the data is on the disks, but the drive either had a mechanical failure, or some sort of data corruption.

    Unfortunately it is the mechanical failure. Importance I guess is in the eye of the beholder. It has almost all of my photos from the last 3 years. There is one file that I really want in particular. The "keepers" I save as TIF files. I was going to make a copy of that and then this computer had a problem. Now that I got this one back, that one died.
