5 Technologies We Thought We Couldn't Live Without - But Did

By Michael Michalski, Hollywood Staff

Sound the death knell on another piece of technology once believed to be the ultimate in its field - the plasma television. For those that missed it, Panasonic has officially thrown in the towel and will end production at month's end, conceding its loss to LCD TVs (which are invariably more affordable). Still, for all plasma fans (such as this writer) all is not lost. Just as time has marched forward without other objects now viewed as superannuated, we will learn to make do with these new (and usually better) replacements. Either that, or you could still make use out of many of them - and simply deal with the strange looks from most friends and relatives when they catch you watching a Beta tape (I kid! I kid!). Either way - there is hope! Time waits for no man (or machine) as these five examples demonstrate.
