In the early 2000s, the late 8x teenagers and early 9xs continued to gasp when a series of technological gadgets spilled into Vietnam.
Nearly 20 years ago, the internet and electronic devices were still rare and strange. Until now, the car did not need a key, charging the phone without plugging the jack …
Here are fifty-fifteen things that perhaps, Vietnamese children of 10 years will not know what:
At present, a large number of businesses in Vietnam still have landline phones. In households, we haven't seen them for years.
According to a report by the National Center for Health Statistics, more than 50% of the US population no longer uses landline phones, this number drops with young families between the ages of 25 – 34. Soon, The landline phone will be something old like a telegram.
USB is about to fall into the past and may disappear completely in the next 10 years
Gone are the days of constantly handing over the USB to "attach" music, movies and viruses.
With a multitude of online data storage solutions, the use of physical drives to move data becomes less attractive and troublesome (okay, share heavy games and genuine movies still OK). And in fact, many new PC models have no longer integrated USB-A ports.
The physical payment card will also disappear
"In the past, I had to go to the supermarket to pay by swiping the plastic card …"
That will be the story you tell your child about ten years later, when one-touch payment and mobile payment (non-physical) will completely erase the physical card.
So is the physical button
Smartphone is gradually removing physical buttons to support the full screen touch screen. Ten years from now, there will probably be no buttons to press on the phone.
TV / Cable TV will make room for streaming services
The role of traditional television is gradually being undermined by video and streaming platforms. Do you remember the rainy and windy nights of nearly 20 years ago that made the antenna column turn headline, digital head, or something like a pan of hands in front of the weather?
The Internet and streaming are making this world change dramatically, who knows, there is something faster and more standard that makes the internet obsolete?
Later children probably don't know what the charger cord is
Cabinet drawers with a bunch of confusing charging wires will gradually become distant memories. The introduction of powerful wireless charging standards is threatening the charging cable. In the next ten years, mentioning "plugging in" will be a happy memory for every meal.
Graphically drawn pocket calculators will also retire
The pocket calculator solves the third-order equation and the peak is to draw both the graph that became "luxury" in the pupil's fifteen, twenty years ago.
At the present time, it is still quite necessary but every lot of free math solutions on smartphones will surely make pocket computers expensive in the future.
Phone book by year – which is already an antique, 10 years from now will become super antique
To the person who wrote the article (9x head) only touched the phone book less than 10 times, admiring the meticulousness of the editors 20 years ago.
This is a real antiquity, but in the UK, people just stopped publishing their phonebook earlier this year.
