Re: best invention of the past century.
I would have to say television. The TV is the fastest thing on earth to deliver info mainly because all you have to do is turn it on, and go to the news. And almost all households all over the world have it. That way, advertisement, entertainment etc have all been molded into one so that people's lives were changed by it. Also, TV has graphics. Pixels and megapixels. Without those, the computer would never have been invented. And if computers were never invented, then neither the internet. And to advertise computers and cars etc, the TV was used so that commercials and those companies could host shows so that the viewers can buy them. TV shows all sorts of things. And the viewer, once they are watching it, they can't really stop watching it. And it comes on randomnly so they don't know what is coming. People using internet type in what they want so they go to what they want to know in the first place. So many people worship the TV nowdays, people watch it in the car, during dinner, at night, in the morning, when they are bored, outside, at cafe's and bars heck, they even have it on phones now. Also, if someone wanted to spread info quickly, they would use the TV over the computer because the TV will show it regardless of whether people would want to see it or not. Whereas the computer, the command to see it must be done before looking at the info. Also, there are more TV's than computers in the world. Adding to that, TV's are much cheaper than computers. Therefore, the TV is the invention that inpacted our lives the most in the last century.
