Improvements in technology have kicked some ofour most used gadgets to the curb. Unless you are a nostalgic soul or trying toconfuse the young-uns, it is unlikely that you still own these ten gadgetsanymore. You’ll be surprised at how many everyday devices have already beenreplaced by 2020.
Who listens to music on an MP3 anymore? Don’teven get us started on a Walkman. The modern way of downloading and listeningto music is through our smartphone and due to iTunes and other similarplatforms, that isn’t likely to change anytime soon.
Remember when we had to get from A to B with avehicle GPS device – and remember the annoyance of having to update it afternew roads were made and others were closed off? Thankfully our smartphonesagain have converted into GPS devices with apps and Google Maps taking usplaces instead.
These handheld gaming devices are not the onlygaming platform to be pretty much abolished. Instead of playing Pokémon on theGame Boy we can catch them using our smartphone and Augmented Reality inPokémon Go. But we are also using our smartphones to play other social games onapps and even casino games like online rouletteand blackjack.
We should probably hold our horses here. Thecraze of Blackberry phones and asking for your mate’s BB pin might not beentirely over. A new Blackberry device is entering the market in the comingmonths, and it may have us all buying them like it is 2010 again.
Watching films doesn’t rely on Channel 4 or renting DVDs anymore. Although some of the old guard still prefer to watch DVDs, most of us have converted to a Netflix or other streaming subscriptions.
It is not to say that we don’t own home phonesanymore or even use them at all, but internet searches for broadband packageswithout line rental are on the increase. Most people don’t see the need forhaving a home landline and want to avoid any nuisance callers.
This one will divide opinion, especially bybusy office dwellers who have to juggle lots of files. Yet, most people haveconverted to some sort of cloud subscription or updated their Dropbox accounts.Memory is creeping down on even the best new laptops making us have to getcreative with where we keep additional files.
Music is an interesting topic when it comes togadgets we don’t use anymore. We might not be buying CDs like we used to, butsome of us are returning to using vinyl records.
Some of us may still own a DVD player, butanyone who owns a video recorder probably has it safely stored in the atticwith a layer of dust and their old Blackberry phone.
Convertibles used to be cool, but are theyreally that cool anymore? All the best supercars and sports vehicles seem tohave abandoned the convertible design.
