Obsolete In The Naughties
Huffington Post has posted a list of a dozen items made obsolete over the last decade. On their list: hand-written letters, the Yellow Pages, dial-up, landlines, CDs, classified print ads, encyclopedias, catalogs, film cameras, and fax machines. I still use a landline and fax machine for work every now and then, and very occasionally play or purchase a physical CD. But otherwise, yeah. To that list I'd add stereos/boomboxes, tube TVs, and travel agents. I kid, I love my travel agent readers!
