The 12 Things Technology Made Obsolete

If you've been de-cluttering and finding things that spark joy, that means you've probably found a few things at the bottom of a cardboard box that don't spark joy. Perhaps you even found a few relics of the past?

Well, we have too, and it got us thinking: What are some things we used to use all the time that technology has rendered... pretty much useless.

The list is long and full of things we remember relying on regularly. So, we came up with this list... and even made a cheeky reference to ourselves (shocking, we know.) 

What would you add to this list? Is there anything on this list you still use?

Let us know in the comments. 

The 12 Things Technology Has Made Obsolete:

  • Landline Phones
  • Walkman
  • Floppy Discs
  • Calling 411 For Information
  • Dial Up Internet
  • Pay Phones
  • Classified Section of the Newspaper
  • Paper Maps & Standalone GPS Devices
  • Fax Machines
  • VCRS & DVD Players
  • Phone Books
  • Paying 6% Real Estate Commissions. We said it. Why should you pay 6% in commissions when you buy or sell a house, when Faira offers the same services for a fraction of the fee? Faira offers agent-lead transactions for just 1%, or even for free if you’re comfortable with going DIY. That means major savings for buyers and sellers. Sellers save $20,000 on average with Faira, and buyers can earn up to 2% back. That’s serious cash that could be spent on lots of other things. Old fashioned real estate has been made obsolete by Faira's platform & offerings. And the best part is - Faira is growing...

Good news: Faira is available in Washington, California, and Arizona


It saves sellers but it's great for buyers too:


And the state-of-the-art platform creates a space for buyers to make offers and sellers to accept them. It's all online, totally transparent, and fast.

Faira meets you where you are: If you want an agent, we can make it happen. If you feel comfortable taking charge of the whole transaction (and saving the most money), Faira meets you there too.



Bottom line: When technology can help you save money, you should let it. That's what Faira is about.
