ADSL (wired Internet access)
Dedicated Cameras And Camcorders
Landline Phones
Slow-Booting Computers
Windowed Operating Systems
Hard Drives
Movie Theatres
The Mouse
3D Glasses
Remote Controls
Desktops

There will always be the slow booting computer. It is just called my smart phone.

I thought that my Dad who lived from 1912 to 1996, saw alot of changes in "technology", but we are living in hyperspeed technology. In an article I just read it said children need time to daydream or we may be huring the very thought processes they need. http://blogs.kqed.org/mindshift/2012/06/why-daydreaming-isnt-a-waste-of-time/ I truly do love the technology, although I always feel very behind. Let your children be bored, they will be better for it.
