Death of the gadget

5 Aug

Smartphones aren’t just useful, they’re murderously so.

Smartphone penetration (1 out of every 5 Canadians owns one) has been deadly for inventors and mad scientists.

Consider all the devices and gadgets that find themselves unnecessary and unloved on the store shelves these days:

  • Watches
  • BriefcasesWidescreen video watch
  • Maps
  • Video Cameras
  • GPS
  • iPods
  • Cameras
  • Voice Recorders
  • Phones
  • Radios
  • Portable video consoles
  • Calendars

Electric nose-hair trimmers are doing great business still however (good tip for all you husbands looking for that perfect gift!).
