Remember the Palm Pilot / PDA?

Remember these?

The PDA is one of the many devices that you could argue no longer exists (or rather is no longer practical) due to the smart phone, and in large part due to the iPhone. Think about it. Why have a 'digital assistant' when an iPhone can perform all of its functions and also double as a phone. Why have a MP3 player, when again your phone can do it just as well (sure you can argue about space, but with everything being in the cloud these days I don't see that as a valid reason).

Just a thought. Check out the Palm Pilot ad in the link above. Used to be cutting edge technology, now it's something we take for granted.
