by our generation i imagine you mean over the last 20/30 years ? well the mobile phone definitely is a brilliant invention. you have got to remember in my day ( oldie but goodie !!) they didnt exist and you had to hunt for a phone box if you were out and needed to contact someone urgently. the 2nd is the lap top computer. 3rd has got to be as you mentioned, disposable nappies. 4th, the i pod and 5th sat navs. we have got 2 , one in each car and although the voice drives me up the wall, they do help you find your way about.

1) computers, definitely I agree 2) internet, especially sites to buy things and have shipped to you, or learn about anything if you can tell what sites are legitimate and which ones are fecal material. 3) ATM machines (remember when you had to wait in line at a bank?) 4) Cell phones are quite popular. I consider them more of a nuisance, but if more people would show more etiquette when they are using them in public, I'll change my mind. 5) Then there's the Blackberries and iPods and portable gaming systems Chocolates have been around for many generations, as have washing machines. As for diapers, I can't see how poor people can use them over cloth diapers. Yes, they are convenient when going out in public, but to use them 24/7?

In this moment only computer come in my mind...chocolate is not our generation invention, is from old time, wash machine..is old too, every times woman was a wash machine...are many inventions, but not very important..maybe many was improved, or are many who are science inventions, every day peoples discover something new.. But the most important, is computer.
