New York Times CEO thinks print has maybe 10 more years. What other things do you think we’ve lived with for a long time, yet won’t see in 10-20 years?

    Traditional TV seems to be on decline right now.

    I lost it when I moved out of my parent’s house, and went without it for a long time. When I get to see it on a rare occasion, its 50% ads and mostly crap content. TV is worthless with the advancement of the internet.

    Home phone lines are almost gone, so in another 10 years or so, I’d expect them to be completely out of commission.

    Fax. A terrible way to communicate in this day and age
    Its slow, poor quality, and is a waste of paper. Sadly the healthcare industry, which I am part of is keeping fax alive.

    Pubic lice aka crabs have been in decline for years now.

    Pennies – it costs 1.7 cents to make every penny put in circulation, eventually that cost to make a coin that gets less and less utilization will no longer be justified.

    VGA and DVI perhaps. Latest monitors I’ve acquired had cables in the box, but most people only ever use HDMI and Display Port for the higher quality, etc. USB-C is even a viable option for that Thunderbolt connection.

    Print news maybe, but printed books aren’t going anywhere for awhile.

    AM radio.

    Sad but true. All my life, I’ve loved slowly crawling the AM band at night, picking up stations from wayyyy out there.

    I live in a third-world country and we can still see public phones on the street. Probably they’re gone already in other countries.

    Learning cursive in schools. It’s already being phased out, but it’s not extinct yet.

    Phone books, I guess. Eventually so many people will opt out that advertising won’t be able to support the cost of print and distribution.

    Mobile phone plans with data caps/limits.

    Reddit. They’re already announcing changes people don’t like, the algorithm keeps the Frontpage staler then it used to, and I’m sure they are going to keep making changes we don’t like as they try to become more corporate friendly. Also, it’s just kinda natural for certain types of websites like reddit to fade away.

    Digital Distribution in general is taking over. Games, movies, TV shows, all gonna be digital is most of the world if not all, except for places with slow internet if thats still going to be an issue.

    Transport driven by people. Especially where people are paid to drive. They are are going self driving.

    Gamestop. Soon all video games will be downloaded directly to the consoles.

    What small vestiges of an informed democracy we have left.

    College admissions for schools outside of the elite.

    Already getting rid of admissions tests, GPA inflation has been a problem for a while, and now there’s numerous cases of fraud about students even completing the classwork needed to graduate. Pretty soon we’ll basically be doing open admissions.

    Coal enegy.. in max. 50 years its history

    The NFL.

    I think once it becomes possible to test for CTE in living players, the results will be so shocking that either everyone will stop watching in protest, or the league will have to regulate contact to the point where it won’t be entertaining anymore.

    That plus the fact that a lot of people are already boycotting it due to the players kneeling during the anthem. Personally, I support the players right to peaceably protest. But by not forcing them to stand, the NFL is pissing off a huge portion of their market. I’d say about half my friends or more didn’t watch a single game this year other than the super bowl (although I live in a pretty conservative area, so my friends aren’t really a random sample of the population.)

    Edit: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/briangoff/2017/10/23/nfl-losing-viewers-at-alarming-rate-but-faces-limits-on-its-response/amp/

    That article describes how the NFL has been in decline for a few years now. I expect it will only get worse.

    Shopping malls. I, for one, am immensely pleased with being able to make all of my clothing purchases from the comfort of my bed (which I ordered on Amazon)

    Manual transmissions.

    Making movies on film really is becoming rarer and rarer. Panavision actually stopped making film cameras several years back. Digital is so much cheaper and has finally gotten to a point where it looks just about as good as film.
