Don't worry.... the next generation, the kids of all these geeks, will rebel against their parents and make fun of their ole fuddy-duddy constant obsession with cute electronics gadgetry. Nothing goes obsolete faster... it's designed to. Rapid obsolescence is what keep the consumer

And in the same vein, a story here about how much the Japanese still love their fax machines (and from the bbc, not yahoo).
Interesting that in the section on pagers, the author writes about the 'advantages' of pagers compared to mobile phones, ie networks going down in an emergency. Had the author had any insight into film (or done a bit of research by asking people like us), s/he would have probably uncovered a lot of advantages that film has over digital (like <$1k worth of MF gear can produce prints better than $10k worth of digital FF, and I'm not even comparing LF yet).
Sure, digital has a lot of advantages over film which the author touches on (like the convenience of instant-gratification of your friends 'liking' whatever you're looking at because otherwise you wouldn't know if you should be enjoying yourself or not, I think this is the video i'm thinking of), but that kind of thinking is probably in the very tiny minority on this particular forum...
