Technology itself evolves. New technology always replaces previous one because of the convenience, portability and costs. It can be seen from a long ago. Slim LEDs and LCDs replaced older fatty CRT televisions. Mobile phones replaced previous landline telephones. Here is a list of technology that we might be using in present but will exist only as old memories in future. Let’s see what is going to be changed.
Removable Storage – Pendrives, Memory Cards and DVDs

Ports and Jacks on your Mobile Phones

Till date, we can have whooping 30W of wireless charging in smartphones. Therefore, in future, it is very much possible that ports and jacks in smartphones will be limited to old memories.
Standard SIM to Micro SIM and then nano SIM – It is getting smaller slowly. But in future, they’re going to disappear. Yes, ESIM is already there in most of the flagship smartphones and also available by airtel and Jio in India.

Just say Ok Google, turn the volume up, or tell the TV to turn up the volume by a simple hand gesture, and voila!, volume is turned up!
Plastic Money – Credit and Debit Cards

Various banks are already providing these facilities like SBI Yono Cash etc. Just authenticate yourself by biometrics, Iris, RFID or even your device and you are done with your payment.
The simple watches which only shows time can be extincted in future. Smart bands and smartwatches enables their users not only to see time, but also weather, messages and notifications, fitness data, alarms etc. Even heart rate sensors and blood pressure sensors are also there in them. So who will choose an analog watch or digital watch over that smartwatches and smart bands?

But have you ever thought that display panels will be made so much light weight and slim that they can be even sticked down on wall. There will be no need to mount the TVs with holes in the wall. Simply stick them and enjoy TV anywhere!
