I just logged into the computer today and saw that article on my homepage... The items apparently facing extinction are:

Floppy Disks (Diskette) - 1982 (3 1/2") - 2011
Incandescent light bulb - 1802 (very basic, and not very good, but it was still an incandescent light bulb) - 2013
Phone Box - 1876 - 2025
CRT Televisions - 1923 - 2007(New), 2015 (existing CRT's)
VHS - 1976 - 2015
Alarm Clocks - N/A - 2017
Computer Mouse - 1963 - 2016 (over my dead body)
Fax Machines - 1970's - 2013
Phone Chargers - 1973 - 2018
House Keys - N/A - 2030 (I'll be keeping mine thank you very much)
Dial-Up - 1962 - 2015
Cash - 1400's - 2050

Well... What ones out of that list will you be glad to see the back of and what ones will you not want to see go ?

And I know there is a discussion on the MSN website talking about it but it's all jumbled up and I would like to hear what you guys thought about it.

If there were 5 things from that list you could save, what would they be ?

Me - Floppy Disks, House Keys, CRT Televisions, VHS, Computer Mouse.

Have something to contribute?
