Modern devices - Will they last?

Two more questions to go on my database final exam. In the meantime I came across this quote about telephones which are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the first transcontinental call. You can read the complete article on modern technologies and whether they'll last here.

"can I simply point out the irony of the text message? Bell invented the telephone so we could hear each other's real voices instead of sending short, clipped messaged via telegram. For over 75 years, we have long intimate conversations on this device. Now we take the smartphone, the most powerful communication device ever invented, and turn it into a glorified telegraph machine sending shorter messages than Western Union. Seriously?"
