10 technologies that should be killed in 2010

Posted on Sunday, December 27 2009 @ 00:18:23 CET by

MacWorld delivers a list of ten obsolete technologies that we should get rid of in 2010. It includes things like fax machines, cigar lighter plugs in cars, business cards and more.
2. ‘Cigar lighter receptacle’ plugs in cars
The idea of building cigar/cigarette lighters into car dashboards originated in the 1920s. The technology was perfected in the 1950s. Decades later, the automobile industry is still building these weird sockets into cars, but now usually without the actual lighter.

As electrical outlets, dashboard lighter ports are dangerous, unreliable, underpowered, inconvenient, unsightly and expensive. They require that you purchase a special plug and/or adapters, which add clutter to your car.

All cars should have standard household electrical outlets, with the converter built in. Or USB ports that can charge gadgets. Or both.
