Wickett's World - 5 favorite inventions
I was sitting with my buddy Mike the other day having a beer at a bar on Milwaukee’s Eastside. We started talking about what the most important inventions have been in the last 50 years. Well, that’s too far back and there have been a LOT of great things invented since then. I decided to shorten that up. Here are my 5 FAVORITE inventions in the last 15 years.

 
1- TiVo/DVR. PAUSE LIVE TV. FAST FORWARD COMMERCIALS. Enough said. 

2- The yellow 1st down marker. Do you remember what watching football was like before it? 

3- Friendster. Did you have it? I didn’t but it led to MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, etc. I LOVE social networking and Friendster.com was the pioneer.

4- Smart Phones. I remember seeing the 1st Blackberry and watched my boss email from the car. Talk about being blown away. I may have written this blog on my smartphone while setting my DVR in between plays of a football game and tweeting about it. Get it?

5- Red Bull. I just really like red bull. With or without vodka. 
 
 

So there you have it…what about your favorites?Write them below so we can compare! Who knows what’s next…but I can’t wait!
 
 
Cheers…
