Things that will disappear by 2030

In most of the developing countries where telephone penetration was 15-40 per 1000 15 years ago has a cellphone penetration of 500 per 1000 households. In developing countries it is 800-1200 per 1000 households. The landlines in these developing countries have reduced from 400 to 250 per households.

This tells me that some of the most sought after product/service will no longer be relevant in few years. Here is my list of things that might disappear by 2030

  • Wired telephone/ cable/ DSL: With Zigbee and Wi-Fi chips selling at a Dollar each in mass will eliminate the need of any wired technology

  • Insulin chips in the body will constantly monitor the diabetes level and release it only as much required, and that will eliminate regular checking and diabetes in 5 generations (Darwin’s effect)
  • Developing countries will see freeway like noodles, and developed countries will move away from freeways to high speed rail like Shinkansen. Flight travel will be done only for more than 3 hours of flying

And this will be that one gadget that you will carry as mentioned above

  3. What the scammers say after they’ve been caughtEven if victims of identity theft,
    just as the rise in child identity theft and fraud by going in for regular shredding and
    destruction of unnecessary documents. Thee Social Securitty Administration SSA
    fwcilitates the process was, too. With this measure a consumer can restrict access to their account.

  4. The double seam taped ceiling did a good job and didn’t leak tho.
    and so you must wear yoga tops or support camisole as a substitute.
    This particular style is quite pleasing and appears like the glass is

  5. Hahaa! Don’t know if it truly qualifies, but in my
    younger and crazier days we used to just put front wheel drive cars in reverse,
    aand then try to do all the things that rear-wheel drive cars could.

    So it isn’t the initially time that front-wheel
    drive cars happen to be drag-raced. These major tires on the front
    certainly make you blink, though!
