Not exactly digital but on the idea of technology and hype- remember when everyone talked about using a microwave for all your cooking. An entire Thanksgiving meal for 12 from a microwave oven!

I have also discovered that for every computer game or gizmo that we buy or receive as a gift for our 2 daughters, there is a quick boredom and return to the classics. Blocks, legos, playdoe, pots and pans, stuffed animals, oatmeal containers etc.
