The poll of 2,000 adults has revealed a string of once-everyday tasks which have been replaced by the rise of technology, Wi-Fi and Smart phones.

However, it emerged that reliance on the internet and technology has made life much easier. Carrying a portable CD player, owning an encyclopedia and being able to remember phone numbers of loved ones off-by-heart are among many things that technology has made easier. The need to reverse charges in payphones to make a call, paying bills at the post office or in the bank and having to book tickets for events over the phone are some of the things people are glad to see the back of. But, we still miss doing those many things. Don’t you?
