How You Know You're Getting Older: Things Babies Born in 2011 Will Never Know

Yahoo! has an entertaining list of things babies born in 2011 will never know.

Many of them are things that I'm happy to see gone: video tapes, movie rental stores, long-distance telephone charges, dial-up Internet service, yellow and white pages, and fax machines.

Others are items that I think of mostly fondly (even if I don't own or use them much anymore either) and can't help but think that something will be lost in the passing of these items/customs/habits: watches, encyclopedias, hand-written letters, talking to one person at a time, and being able to hide.

So yes, I'm feeling a bit antiquated at the moment - what will you miss once the relentless march of progress sweeps it into the dustbin of history?
