I refer to things that will become outdated and replaced through tech advancement or things that will lose importance and be forgotten, or things that will be taken away. This can be tangible objects, beliefs or anything.

Cars. I want my jet-pack, or a teleporter would suffice too. Or, and I know this is pushing my luck, but a personal trainable T-rex that you can ride on and battle in the street!

Physical media , which blows , its a detriment for consumer rights , people see it as a convenience for everything to be digital but its a double edged sword where its also companies projecting their control over products. So you cant resell those things , or have it all the time if your license subscription runs out on said product.

That's the easiest one to accomplish, Harry. Just learn necromancy.

Televisions. They'll probably be replaced by either smart glasses or become something more like a wall replacement. Maybe they'll call them dynamic walls or something less cheesy.

The one thing I'm afraid they will get rid of is BOOKS.. that would be truly sad. e-reader just aren't the same! Maybe it's just me but when I hold a really old book I think of all the places it's been and all the different people who might have read it. I also love the smell of books. With e-readers I just think germs and yes I know that doesn't make sense since old books probably have lots of germs too!

I think many feel as you do, printed books will not go away without a fight.

Within our lifetime huh?

Fossil fuel would be depleted...

Permanent small businesses...

Alarm clocks...

Humility...

Patience...well that's probably gone already...

The illusion of democracy in America would probably be gone...
