Better yet, what tech will become completely obsolete within our lifetime? According to one historian, “Old technology seldom just goes away. Whiteboards and LED screens join chalk blackboards, but don’t eliminate them. Landline phones get scarce, but not phones. Film cameras become rarities, but not cameras.”
