Name five things that changed, so you didn't have to?

What innovations, changes and additions in today's world have changed the way you do things, so you didn't have to change too much. An example could be the Tom Tom sat nav....its so simple, intuitive and cost effective, we didn't have to dramatically change the way we navigated but gone were the arguments, delays and frustrations.
