With Thanksgiving approaching in the U.S., I've been thinking about the innovations that I'm most thankful for in my day-to-day routine. Here is my top 10 list.
10 - Wireless technology - For reducing the number of cords that I hide behind my TV.
9 - Self service machines - For giving me the option to avoid human interaction.
8 - GPS - For helping me find the closest Starbucks.
7 - Instant messaging - For giving me a way to get answers to questions immediately.
6 - Twitter - For sharing content.
5 - 3G - For keeping me connected ... constantly.
4 - DVR - So I can watch my favorite TV shows when I want to watch them ... and skip through the commercials.
3 - Google - For helping me find information every day.
2 - Skype - For making it possible for my parents to watch their granddaughters grow up.
1 - Maid Brigade - For giving me extra time in my day....time is priceless.
What are you thankful for?
