Remember records? they are considered novelty now I remember buying songs on records. I remember cassette tapes and don't even get me started on 8 tracks. now there will be a generation of kids that have music just from mp3 players or phones or computers. remember polaroid, you had the picture instantly in minutes just wait.. now all the pictures are on phones mostly or fuzzy webcam pictures. taking a picture with a camera with film is becoming novelty too. What else is next? we already don't have antennae on the tv its digital now, you cant fix a digital signal that messes up with vertical tracking in the back. kids today don't have to heat up leftovers in the oven or on top of the stove they can just nuke it in the microwave. I can remember when tv would sign off late at night it would go off now something is on 24 hours a day. I'm not anti technology all these things have improved us but we have lost a lot of traditions associated with our old tech replaced by new ones.

Yes we are getting techy and sometimes it's too fast that we don't know any of these things and it just surprise us when we see it and we feel outmoded and all the old methods that we do that we have been used to doing are now the thing of the past What's next?

I remember when we were in Nursery schools we would be taught how to mold using mud but nowadays you cannot get that in schools. Kids cannot touch mud it is dirt but it was fun then

Actually vinyl is coming back and kids are reading real books as well. They are bucking the trends that were predicted. Walk into almost any store and your see record players for sale. What's old is new now.
