* In ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', humanity in the 26th century has access to space flight and ships capable of ripping holes into an AlternateUniverse in order to achieve [=FTL=] travel. With it they've colonized dozens of planets, and they've built powerful magnetic weapons and nukes capable of wiping out entire cities with ease, and developed the technology and science to create SuperSoldiers. And yet, for the average soldier, the standard weaponry of a [[KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter metal-slinging pistol, machine-gun, shotgun, rocket launcher assault rifle, and grenade]] have endured more or less unchanged and still perfectly capable of killing even some of the most horrifying alien creatures out there.

* The electrical motor was figured out in the 19th century and it has not seen major improvements in technology for a long while. But pretty much everything that moves relies either on this or internal combustion engines. Even some diesel trains and boats use electrical motors because using a diesel engine to produce electricity is more efficient than using a diesel engine outside its optimal range.

The fancy Tesla Model S uses literally ''the simplest'' electric motor design, 3-phase AC induction motor. A power drill motor is more complex.

* ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/11652534 Captain America: Ghosts of HYDRA]]'': Sharon Carter's fighting style; she doesn't have Natasha Romanov's grace or Wanda Maximoff's acrobatics in fighting ability, but she fights efficiently, hits hard and delivers blows with lightning speed.

On this note, UsefulNotes/{{DVD}}-Video]] remains highly popular for films and custom video burning, in spite of only supporting 480p resolution. Part of the reason for this is because it is quite adequate for most TV-sizes and the players do not have any invasive DRM hardware standards. Again, most computers come with a standard DVD drive, and mostly let you play the films without hassle. Even most Linux systems only need to execute a particular command script just once to activate the decrypter, and they're set to view DVD films. Plus, a DVD-R drive is extremely cheap to get these days; you can snag a good one for just 20 USD.

** Related to this is the infantryman's best friend, the entrenching tool. It is used for fortifications, fieldcraft, latrines and, more pertinently to this part of the list, a melee weapon. Some commando units and Spetsnaz are even formally trained in their use as a combat implement rather than their ostensible use.

** The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AK-47 AK-47]] is, essentially, as simple and rough-hewn as a fully automatic rifle can actually be. That makes it virtually indestructible (they can notoriously be dunked in mud and fired without cleaning) and has allowed people to acquire one who could otherwise hardly afford a good club. Its predecessor, the [[CoolGuns/{{Rifles}} SKS]], also has a reputation for simplicity and reliability and was the workhouse of the [[ChineseWithChopperSupport PLA]] for years.

UsefulNotes/FlashMemory is starting to catch up with HardDrive, but research and development is continuously used for expanding the capacities of the Hdd towards tens-of-terrabytes to make up for their moving parts. The next improvement for Hdd is the possible wide-spread implementation of high-speed UsefulNotes/FlashMemory on the drive controller, for fast-access to frequently-used files.\\

* The turn-table [[HardDrive hard disk]] drive is still relevant as of 2016:
** In spite of the introduction of [[FlashMemory Solid State Drives]], they are very cost-efficient for their capacities. A multi-terabyte model gives Optical and Tape rivaled cost-effectiveness, or makes up for the extra cost with superior read/write performance. External-models can be power-efficient enough to run on just a USB port, and fit into a pocket or laptop bag. Add a data recovery plan with your purchase, for a trivial cost; you have peace of mind that professionals are on stand-by for a few years to recover your data in most failure scenarios.\\

* The Mazda MX-5 convertible often has critical acclaim for its agile, responsive handling, top-down fun, and reasonable price point. While the engine is modestly powered, engine performance isn't really the main point of the vehicle (though owners have been know to swap more powerful engines in); this relatively low power works to the car's advantage, making this excellent beginner's car for those who want to get their feet wet in race-track driving, without going out of control easily.
