    Laser caurterization for surgery. Makes it so much better for the patient after internal surgery without the stitches or staples.

    The dedicated 3D graphics accelerator card. Since then computers have flown where graphics is concerned.

    Solid state hard drives. Thank God we're close to the end of mechanical hard drives. No more collapsing drive heads will be awesome.

    And finally, true plug-and-play operating systems. Remember 'trying' to use USB devices on Windows 98? I don't, I just remember the BSODs from it. I can't imagine the pain that would be involved with all of my USB devices under Windows 98.

    they both boil down to cordless phones

    the world is communication.. the invention that allows us to communicate to more people at any given moment

    doesnt matter if its for an emergency.. even though emergency communication really needs to be ranked high by my fellow peers

    in bed making babies is a form of communication.. and this is the most simplistic form of growth known to man.. age would be the second most simple

    **disclaimer**
    dont argue with me.. age is second because cats can have lots of babies at once so that means having babies is first.. the time it takes for the entire litter of cats to grow old is second

    what the cats learn and teach their children is priceless

    But they do exist, meaning they have been invented. Price wasn't part of the topic anyway as if it was many of these inventions wouldn't be listed. I guess if price were a factor then flash drives are a great invention and they're just little solid state drives.

    People, I am very surprised that none of you have posted the one true best invention to change all of our lives, thus keeping our civilization from destroying ourselves...........the RONCO Showtime Rotisserie Oven. Do I win the thread?

    NMT was ace. The reception of that stuff was incredible. No matter where you were, you could still make a call. A norwegian company have purchased the frequency here in the country, and are planning on rolling out wireless broadband on it. Wonder how that'll work out.

    No morpheous, you've already said to much, lol. JK - :)


    Uh, I would have to say the personal computer is the best invention since I was born. High speed internet and cable TV is a close second place.
