If you blink, you miss it ...
2. Alarm Clocks
Alarm clocks can look cute on a bedside table, but more and more people are turning to their cell phones — or even talking coffee makers! — to wake them up in the morning.
3. Point-and-Shoot Cameras
Remember when a 2-megapixel digital camera was a big deal—and cost a good chunk of change. Now cell phones routinely come with built-in cameras with five or more megapixels!
Even though laptops are smaller than ever, smartphones and tablets like Apple’s iPad are nearly as powerful and functional as a traditional laptop computer.
5. Anything Wired
Remember when your keyboard, computer mouse, and headphones all had to attach to something else in order to work? With more and more gadgets working via Bluetooth and WiFi, the age of wired devices is on its way out.
6. Hard Drives
As cloud computing and cloud storage catches on, the necessity for individuals to own hard drives capable of holding hundreds of gigabytes of data will be dramatically reduced. The biggest advantage to cloud computing is the ability to access your data via the Internet from any computer or smartphone anywhere in the world, which makes it very appealing.
