This, is win.
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.
when was the drinking straw invented??
i think its awesome
lol, My rig is worth about as much as 2-3 SSDs, so we aren't quite there yet.
reeally great, im gonna order a better internet from isp soon
3M Scotch Blue Painters Tape.
Guru3D. Without it this thread wouldn't exist!
Patended in 1888.
I know we have some older poeple in our forums, but that's jsut a bit old.
mobile phone / cell phone
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
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
Wins this thread.
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. Anyone who knows what it is gets parrot pin and 10 points x)
Microwave ovens and internet
Creepy Crawlers, and Teddy Rubskin
The first generation of mobiles before GSM. Woot gimme gimme 10 points j/k
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.
Life like inflatables..... need I say more?
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.
