I'm finding a number of things in my life that I'm getting less and less use out of... Many of these were items or services that I was pretty gung-ho about until fairly recently; all of them are turning out to be something other than "must have's":
Library card -- OK, that's an easy one to begin with. We've got a great library and they've built onto it a couple of times over the past 10 years but I don't think I've set foot in it in months. In fact, I got an e-mail a week ago saying my card had expired. Of course, just when I thought all libraries are going the way of the Dodo bird, I see these two articles (here and here) on CNET. Maybe I should stop by and renew the card after all.
Browser bookmarks -- Once upon a time I had dozens of these. I guess that was in my pre-Firefox days though because now I have 21 tabs that load automatically and zero bookmarks. Zero. Besides, Googling a name (company, product, whatever) and clicking the first link in the search results seems like a faster solution than managing bookmarks.
Wall Street Journal Online subscription -- I used to troll this site every night and multiple times each weekend. Now I find days can go by without visiting it. The vast majority of my online news comes to me via Google News and CNET. I'm not ready to give up on this subscription, but it's interesting how it used to be a destination site and now it's a I-paid-so-I-can-see-the-story-linked-to-by-someone-else's-blog site.
Yahoo Widgets -- I love widgets. Konfabulator became Yahoo and I stayed with them. Maybe it was one too many Windows exception errors or perhaps it was just a weariness over seeing the .exe hogging all my CPU cycles. Either way, my hard disk was recently wiped clean and I didn't reinstall Yahoo Widgets. I miss them...sort of...but I'm happy to report my computer is much more stable without them. This is probably a case of a technology that's not quite ready for prime time. I'm sure I'll be using somebody's widgets again before too long.
Yahoo Mail -- This used to be my preferred personal e-mail account. Now it's mostly a pile of spam. Gmail rocks, or at least their spam filter is much more effective than Yahoo's.
MyYahoo -- Hmmm...that's the trifecta, so no wonder Yahoo as an organization is sputtering right now. Anyway, MyYahoo used to be my go-to page for everything. Searching, mail, news, etc., I knew I could find it right away on one page. Now it's a legacy tab that I can't bring myself to remove from Firefox, but it certainly doesn't get the usage it once did.
How about you? Are there any items like this in your world?
