Just Curious...

Someone posted on Facebook (of course) the other day, wondering what kids of today would feel they had done without while growing up.

It got me to thinking now only of what crazy (but great) new developments there will certainly be, but wondering whatever happened to some things that were supposed to be real gifts.

Since I was a kid, for example, there are decidedly less people smoking (or at least that's the impression, since it isn't really allowed anywhere). But whatever happened to the e cigarette? They were supposed to be the greatest thing, allowing one the comfort of continuing to smoke, without the health risks to themselves and those around them.

What do you remember being presented as the next greatest thing since sliced bread? Do you have or use it?? If not, do you know why not?
