um, I feel like it has to be the internet doesn't it? Without it would we really have anything else?
The modern Silicon PN junction diode, with out it, the internet or the i-phone would not exist. There is a new technology which is currently in its infancy as was the first crystal diode of 1874, and that is chemically grown juntions, first published in October 1998 by what used to be bell labs. A room temp semiconductor device was created in solution by molecular bonding. What this will mean, processors which will have transition periods in the femto sec range, other potential applications, an injection could contain your new communication device.
Some trade magazines I used to read may have not had a wide circulation, but the information was from reputable sourses at the companies and facilities that produced it.
uhm, perhaps striped kneesocks?
Since the first new invention I remember as a child was the TV, which we didn't have one until I was in the 4th grade. I can remember hearing the news for the first time. I can remember the start of the Cold War. President Kruschev of Russia said "We will bury you" As a Baby Boomer born in the late 40's it was a scarey time to hear about the possibility of a nuclear attack.

I'll bet some of the people who won't get hired any more and lost years and years of seniority and were close to retirement will care...... :)
And to think that all this could have been averted had you only eaten more Twinkies.....lol
Yeah, I'll tell them that when I see them applying for unemployment benefits, that you as a tax payer with a job will be paying for...... :)
The cell phone.
