50 Things We Don’t Do Anymore Because of Technology [Infographic]


The more things change, the more they stay the same, as the saying goes. Well, this infographic below details 50 things that many of us don’t do anymore because of technology. While some of us still rock the mix tapes (#14) in the car and churn out hand-written thank you notes (#28), most of us don’t.

I mean, when’s the last time you used a pay phone (#5)? Driving through the gas station the other day with my four kids in the car, I pointed to a pay phone and said, “Hey kids, that’s a pay phone. Like, if you don’t have a cell phone and you need to make a call, and you have 25 or 35, wait, no 50 cents (I think), you can call home if you need to.”

Man, I felt old at that moment.

No to mention the fact that I had at least 30 disposable cameras (#12) at my wedding and I bought New Kids on the Block tickets by phone in the 8th grade (#6) . . . but I digress.

What things do you no longer do thanks to technology? What things would you prefer to go back to the way they used to me (did I mention I really liked making mix tapes back in the day?)

So here ya go, 50 things you probably don’t do much of anymore thanks to good ‘ole technology:
