21st Century's Finest
3) DVR - The DVR originally burst onto the scene in 1999 (many of you may remember it as TiVo), but it didn't truly take off until the 2000s. VHS tapes were disappearing before our very eyes and no longer would big, boxy VCR's saturate our living rooms. The DVR slowly became the sales pitch for cable companies and I was completely sold once being informed I could pause live TV (say what?!) making those quick pit stops to the restroom more enjoyable!
2) YouTube - The only form of social media I've ever truly appreciated; I don't know where I'd be without it. Whenever a feeling of nostalgia smacks me in the face, I usually extent my hand to YouTube, where I am allowed to escape to a world I USED to love. Aside from that, YouTube has given content creators (and those who are attention-deprived) a platform to showcase their 'talents.' The creme de la creme? no longer do we have to visit the local library to learn how to fix a car tire! Many of our answers are solved thanks to this giant media tool.
1) iPod - I don't care what anyone says, when the iPod burst onto the scene it captured our hearts. This tiny gadget stored thousands of songs, fit into our pockets, and more important - it didn't 'skip', nor did any tape unravel!
