About 5 years ago, our world was very different, as there was no great use of the iPads that appeared in 2010, and smart phones were used for communication only, with rarely surfing the Internet.
There is no doubt that the next five years will unleash a group of unimaginable products and services, but with scientific progress, technological invasion and technical inventions; Tools that were previously considered basic have disappeared, to be replaced by new tools that are more essential today.
Many things may disappear from our lives during the coming years, but we will specifically mention only 5, and none of us imagine that he can abandon them at the present time, but this is what will happen within the next 5 years, according to what was mentioned on the Russia Today website, which are:
1- Cash, check books, credit cards and ATMs:
Our current era is witnessing a noticeable decrease in the use of cash to pay bills in most commercial places and restaurants, as most of us use bank payment cards for electronic payments, and the electronic money transfer process has become very easy, and it can be done through quick steps.
And in the US, cash use fell 57% between 2000 and 2012, according to the Federal Reserve.
It should be noted that, in the distant future, there will be no cash at all, and this means that ATMs will also disappear.
2- USB external memory:
By 2020, 70% of people around the world will be using a smartphone, mobile networks will cover 90% of the population, with cloud services including Apple, Box, Dropbox, Google and Microsoft offering nearly unlimited amounts of storage, at almost free prices.
This means that the need for data storage devices will decrease dramatically, in light of the increase in storage space on mobile devices as well, in the next five years.
3- Using secret words and numbers:
This is very difficult, because passwords are widely used today, and it is said that the average user has 19 passwords.
Fingerprint, voice and face recognition will replace passwords by 2020.
4- Remote control:
Strategic research firm, forecasts, predicts that emerging categories of the Internet of Things (IoT), such as smart home and wearable devices, will connect an additional 17.6 billion devices by 2020.
There are many new devices connected to voice search systems, which will abandon remote controls by 2020.
5- Fixed documents and paper agreements:
Static documents and paper agreements will inevitably disappear in just 5 years and will be replaced by electronic correspondence and digital documents.
