When someone asks me what I think the best invention in the last couple of decades I say smart phone. We call it a "smart phone" but it's really a mini computer that can make phone calls. Just think about everything you can do with it. It can get you where you need to go, check weather, get news and information, play games, do your banking and shopping. It's pretty amazing when you think about it.

A survey asked what people thought the ten most important inventions in the last 35 years. Here's what they said.

  1. Wi-Fi.  (Internet is over 25 years old)
  2. Smartphones
  3. Online banking
  4. Online search engines, l
  5. Online shopping platforms, like Amazon.
  6. Stem cell technology.
  7. GPS.
  8. Flat-screen TVs.
  9. Contactless payment.
  10. Tablet devices.

YouTube was #11 on the list, 3D printers was at #12, Netflix was at #13, Skype was at #15, electric cars was at #16, Facebook was at #19, and wireless headphones came in #20.
