The world is constantly evolving and technology is rapidly advancing and changing how we do things. Just think back to what technology was like before the Internet, cell phones or navigation, it’s hard to think how we managed to get around and meet up with friends.

Though we remember life before our modern high-tech world, babies born in 2011 won’t remember much — if anything — about the technology we grew accustomed to before having Google.

The technology most of us had available growing up is quickly becoming a thing of the past in this high-tech world, and soon most of these things will (or already have) become obsolete. Babies born this year might not ever know about the daily newspaper or going to Blockbuster to rent a movie…

  • Video tape
  • Travel agents
  • Books, magazines and newspapers
  • Movie rental stores

  • Landline phones
  • Long distance phone calls
  • Newspaper classifieds
  • Dial-up Internet
  • Encyclopedias
  • CDs
  • The evening news
  • Film cameras

  • Hand-written letters

  • MJ fan

    So So true, also may never now anything other than Flat screen and Hi DEF TV

  • RainbowRay

    By the time they grow up, all this will have long been known as “nostalgia” (one of my personal passions). I believe this to be true myself. Times change, technology changes and people change so we’ll just have to wait and see what the future holds for babies being born today in terms of technology changes.
