7 Awesome Bits of Tech That Just Freakin' Disappeared

7 Awesome Bits of Tech That Just Freakin' Disappeared.

It got me thinking about awesome technology that we somehow ditched. The airship? Awesome. Slide rules? Awesome awesome. Mir Space Station? Boss-level awesome. And now just thinking about wristwatches with calculators makes me suffer a sense of short-term nostalgia (as in Douglas Coupland's Generation X).

Nice article.... Unsurprisingly a lot of the cool tech was killed by larger industries such as the RIAA and MPAA as it would make people happier and give them less money. As usual.
