What was once cool

Intercoms used to be all the rage. We visited some dear friends not long ago, and they had a state of the art intercom - circa 1979.

I'm amazed at how something that was so cutting edge at one time can become ancient history. I think intercoms could still be useful, depending on the house. Why did they go out of fashion?

We had one in our house when I was growing up... my parents used to call us to get out of bed! It was pretty handy...

My grandparents had one in their house. I thought it was the coolest thing ever!
