The way we can control our cars with the keys from inside our houses is insane. It's hard to remember that there was a time you needed to ignite and start the car yourself. Now you can start your vehicle and finish dressing up while it warms up. How cool!

You don't have to worry about losing your house keys anymore; you don't even need a house keys with the advanced technology of coding your house, thanks to home automation. You can set these codes, and your kids won't have to bother about losing their keys because they only have to memorize the code.

Technology has made reading easier as you don't need the hardcover in your school's library; the internet has got you! They even have more updated online textbooks that you can read on the go and whenever. You no longer have to bother about returning a book. We love that!

When was the last time anyone had to clean chalk off a chalkboard; we can't remember, can you? Now we have markerboards and even better, projectors. Life is indeed easier with technology.

Payphones are not so accessible anymore, they're costlier, and it's hard to maintain. All this means you won't be seeing payphones around anymore. You have your smartphone anyways.

33. Paper maps

We're sure some of you 90’s kids have never seen a paper map. Who needs it anyway when there are Google maps, inbuilt car GPS, and other helpful navigation technologies?

32. Fax machines

Even though the fax machine may still be in use, we can see it gradually fading away. Technology has made it easier to ignore the fax machine as you can fill out any forms and documents through the computer.

31. iPods

Smartphones are replacing lots of devices, and one of them is the iPod. What is the essence of holding two devices when one can do it all? You don't have to keep your phone and iPod while traveling or jogging. You can enjoy your music and do other things with just one device.

30. Alarm clocks

Alarm clocks are no longer in use now as there is a device challenging it. Can you guess which one? You're right, the smartphones. Again. You can easily set the alarm on your smartphone.

29. Land phones

Landlines are fast declining in use, and they are also quite expensive to maintain. True, it'd be useful when the cellular network is down, or your babysitter that doesn't have a phone wants to get to you, but you don't need it.

28. Videocassette player

Who still watches movies on video players these days? You don't need to see it more than once, anyway. You can buy digital movies from numerous streaming services like Amazon and iTunes. Life is easy!

Movie tickets can still be bought at the theaters but why stress. Movie tickets can now be sent to your phone, and you can skip the long line and just show the usher your digital movie tickets to be scanned.

Calculators are not quite as popular as before as you can tell Alexa to sum it up and you have the answer to the equation.

Smartphones have been infused with very versatile and sharp cameras that makes us wonder if photography will still be a thing in 30 years.

22. Glasses

Contact lenses came to pitch glasses out of the game, and laser eye surgery is about to do the same to it. Laser eye surgery has been said to cure lots of vision impairments. Once it becomes less expensive and more accessible, just know it's over for contacts and glasses.

21. Fuelled Cars

When electric cars get less expensive and charging stations more common, fuelled cars will begin to seem outdated and costly to maintain. We love this as it reduces the world's dependence on oil, too.

20. Newspapers and magazines

Newspapers, magazines, and all sorts will soon be out of date as they will be available on the internet and apps. We wonder how long they will stay around for.

19. Cable TV

You don't have to plan tomorrow's evening to be free because of the show that will be aired. Smart TVs allow you to connect your internet to sites like HBO On Demand, Netflix, and so on. Cable television is pretty useless; you have to agree.

Analog meters and meter readers will be scarce soon as utility companies now make use of smart, wirelessly, connected meters, which report directly to the user. This, in turn, helps the user to monitor usage and also help the companies to correctly gauge how much power, gas, or water is being used.

9. Passwords

Passwords are a hassle, especially when you don't remember them. Thanks to advancement in technology, very soon passwords will be replaced with biometric identification features like fingerprint, retina scanners, and voice recognition.

Even though a printer is relatively inexpensive, the cost of ink refills might bother you. Well, now things are easier as lots of documents can be filled online. The need to print is continuously declining.

You might not be seeing analog wristwatches anymore, so if you still have one that still works, wear it as much as you can. Smartwatches with their fanciful features will replace them. With smartwatches, you can set the alarm, keep track of your heart rate, and connect to your Bluetooth earbuds.
