You’ve probably heard lots of times in your life that cash will become obsolete someday. But, what you may not know is that credit cards may soon become a thing of the past, too. In fact, according to an article published by PC Magazine, plastic credit cards are becoming digital.

In other words, you’ll start to see more people paying with mobile or wearable technology and fewer people paying with actual plastic cards. And, according to PC Magazine, this is actually a good thing.

“These technologies have the potential to cut down on fraud. They negate the need for any third-party vendor to ever see your credit card number, and your pocket supercomputer has the ability to use biometric data (e.g., fingerprints) to prove that you are indeed buying that bulk-sized jar of Nutella,” the magazine wrote on its website.

11. In-Person Voting

With us working, going to school and grocery shopping from home, you knew it would only be a matter of time before we started voting from home. In fact, several states have already moved to voting to mail.

Here’s how it works: You receive a ballot in the mail, mark the ballot, then put it back in the mail. It’s as simple as that. And, there’s even a nifty little feature that lets you track your vote online so you can make sure it gets counted.
