The Top 10 Innovations I’m Thankful For

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?
