That's one of the conclusions published by the giant professional organization, IEEE, recently in its 2013 Gadget Graveyard survey. The survey is a Facebook application where more than 1,700 IEEE members, engineers, engineering students and CES trade show attendees cast more than 25,000 votes on what sorts of technology they think will die off by year-end, like landline phones and Ethernet cables but mostly which will live on like standalone cameras."
