Re: 15 current technologies a child born today will never use
aside from that, the fax is a dying instrument. They have copiers that can scan multiple pages and email them anywhere that you'd like. I don't have to even sign my taxes anymore, I can digitally sign them and hit "send". More and more building departments allow you to submit plans with a digitial engineer/architect stamp rather than submitting multiple sets of drawings each stamped by the architect/engineer of record. I can apply for a loan and never set foot inside a lending institution, there are so many things that used to require a "wet" signiture that now allow you to do so electronically that even that excuse will soon be a thing of the past.
One thing he didn't mention, though doesn't apply to his children, but will eventually be a thing of the past is cash. Well, there will always be some form of currency, but practically speaking, how many people carry cash around with them? I'm one of those people that always likes to have a little cash, just because, but it wouldn't be all that difficult to go the rest of the year and never touch cash. B/w direct deposit, on line bill pay, debit/credit cards, paypal and checks, there rarely is a need for cash.
