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?
