Gone! or Will Be

It is hard to think of  a part of our daily lives that has not been changed by the digital world.  Today we own devices that weren't even imagined twenty years ago...and even more interestingly there so many things we no longer need or use. 

Yesterday several local news outlets ran a story that originated in Britain on the online publication The Telegraph. The article listed "things" the digital revolution has made obsolete or will make obsolete in the near future.

Here is a sampling (BTW I added a few my own)...

Handwritten letters
Music CD's
Fax Machines
The Yellow Pages
Paper Maps for directions
Book-bond encyclopedias
Printed photographs
Personal Pagers
Copy Machine

I think the white pages are gone ( covers that).. but the yellow pages are still necessary.

Try looking up lawyer, plumber or real estate and see the kind of terrible results the search engines give you.
