I think C Ds will still exist in generations to come. Like vinyl they'll become a collectors item. There are far too many people who have invested a lot of time collecting their C Ds and have hundreds to boot, I can't see them giving up C Ds for a change in media. Limited edition disks will still be highly sought after etc and like records, CD compatible players will become more expensive to suit a select market.

I think 2D movies will last a long time.

My baby brother is 17 years younger than me. One of the first things that really brought that home was the thought that he'll never have the experience of meeting someone at the gate. If he watches old TV shows, the idea of a guy rushing to the gate to stop a girl from leaving him on an airplane won't make any sense to him - because you can't get past the secure checkpoint without a ticket now. Tearful goodbyes happen beside the ticket counter. It's pointless to try to watch their plane take off - you can't tell which one it is because you have no idea where their gate is. They just walk away and that's all.
^When I was little, I ran to stop my grandmother from taking the plane back to Vietnam at the gate. It was the last time I saw her, too.
VHS tapes, and how they were pretty damn awesome compared to what came before.
Also, non-digital cameras.
Non-digital cameras are likely to survive for some time, but it will become a niche hobby, like playing vinyl records.
Not sure 'bout that. There's a class for classic photography at my college, and it's pretty well-attended.
Anyways. Imagine having to explain to your kids why old books have yellow pages. Or encyclopedias! "Mommy, what are those books all in a row over there? Why do they all look the same?"
"That's because the world was a completely monochrome place before Wikipedia came along, dear."
I'm not sure if digital will ever really replace analogue cameras. There's still a lot of effects that you just can't do in Photoshop, and there's even more that are just easier to do with an analogue camera than with Photoshop.
It's also currently cheaper to buy a really nice 35mm camera than it is to buy a digital cam that can do stuff like swap lenses.
Why all the seafood is mutated and glows in the dark...
Why pink is not a gay color
And that gay used to mean happy.
And what it means to be happy
Chalkboards, and the horrible, squeaky sound of chalk scratching against one. Maybe even whiteboards, if they all get phased out for the electronic sort.
What people are talking about when they say 'chalkboard' rather than 'blackboard'...
Or white board.
^^But chalkboards aren't always black. The name confuses me.
Clotheslines. Phones with circular dials, much less party lines. Full-service gas stations. TVs without remotes and with a total of two, three, or four stations. Milkmen. Toys with parts small enough to choke on.

Unless Oregon and New jersey change their laws, there will be full-service gas stations for a long while.
