I remember hearing that Payphones are going to go bye bye in the near future. I cant even remember the last time I seen a pay phone, let alone know howmuch it even costs now to even use a payphone.

Newspapers are another one. Majority of the news can now be seen on internet, iTunes, cellphones. Although people cant seem to spare $.75 for a newspaper


CDs are one as well

Is there anything else that might bite the dust soon thanks to "Modern Technology"

People still read newspaper in the toilet and most people doesn't a laptop to bring with them while sitting in the throne.
House phones or landline phones would be gone soon too.
Most of the people I know only has one for the internet but none of them use nor do they answer it because it is usually just some marketing crap.
Which brings me to another thing that will be gone soon, those phone marketing that we just can't get off the phone from.
