The only one of these I use is GPS on phones. I would not miss any of the rest.
OMG! I don't use any of those 18. What's wrong with me!
Ha, use 3 here.
GPS and Pinterest here.
only two, a slow progress...
Neither do I. I don't even know some them.
Lol, neither do I.
Got a 'disable your adblocker' message (I use MVPS hosts) so couldn't see the list. I can't imagine I use any of them myself.
Never used any of those.
GPS and 4G are the only things there I make use of.
I make use of WhatsApp and of course 4G. I also often visit Instagram sites. Google Chrome is the biggest crap ever created. And Airbnb should be banned.
How things have changed...
Where is the Raspberry Pi, 4K TVs/discs, USB Type C, the Nintendo Switch?
The items themselves with no descriptions or context whatsoever:
1. The iPad
2. Google Chrome
10. GPS on smartphones
I missed 4G when I looked over the list the first time but it seems unrelated to everything else in this list anyway.
Little OT but it's hilarious to me how Browser Vendors especially are pushing back at the push backs they been getting from all those ad laden sites that now ID when certain add-ons snuff out and stop their crud. Never saw so many trackers in my life as nowadays.
Back OT, as mentioned I use and like Pinterest but it's so crammed with not ads but images mostly and the way it's set up to load and show is so much different than in years past. It's not important but a good indicator for me either how better advanced they are becoming or not so much.
GPS is a no brainer here since it's a part of finding all those new roads, fuel stops, etc. when traveling.
A portion of those are like those social media things. I don't even know some of them and I don't care to take the time and effort TO learn them.
Crap like kickerstart is not a good thing either because it encourages rapid "thoughtless" product design. And it rewards the "developer" BEFORE they have a finished product. So no.
The only revolutionary and life-changing and beneficial "product" is, you guessed it, GPS! The other stuff can be done away with. After the small cost of entry for a navigator device it's a free service.
You are right, I use none of them. I use GPS but on my satnav, not mobile. I don't do social media.
