10 Inventions that Wiped Out Businesses

The forward march of technology is both unforgiving and unstoppable. As it mercilessly weeds out the old in favor of the new, once-beloved products and services become less favored by consumers, while others simply become obsolete.

It’s always been this way. The horse and buggy was once the dominant means of travel for Americans, but once the automobile was invented formerly solvent buggy makers found themselves out of a job.
This dynamic repeats itself whenever an invention comes along that significantly improves on a previous one. It’s particularly true when the invention offers convenience and ease of use. What follows is a list of products and services that became so indispensable to consumers that they instantly lost interest in their previous favorites.

What are some inventions that killed other products and services? lets find out.

Hotter Than Fire | Eric Saade

'Hotter Than Fire' by Eric Saade feat. Dev. 'Hotter Than Fire' is the brand new single from Eric Saade, featuring the American popstar DEV. The single will be released on November 2nd. It's taken from the upcoming album "SAADE VOL 2" that will be released November 30th.

My review: The song is amazing! It is so much like 'Made of Pop' from his second studio album, 'Saade Vol. 1'. I really like the opening part of the song. The chorus is a little disappointing though the lyrics for the chorus is well-written. In my opinion, the song is quite amazing but I do not think it will be better than 'Made of Pop', 'Popular' and definitely 'Upgrade'. Anyway, please enjoy the song!

Just like he raised his game from the ‘Masquerade’ era to the ‘Saade Vol.1′ era, so ‘Hotter Than Fire’ does genuinely feel like he’s moved up to yet another level. It’s intensely catchy – not just the chorus, but the verses too. For reasons that will become clear when you hear the full thing, we haven’t quite been able to forget the word(s?) “advance-vance……..a-advance-vance“! Fans of name checks at the beginning of songs will also be pleased to hear Eric triumphantly announce the presence of Dev, and Dev herself acknowledge Eric Saade at the start of ‘Hotter Than Fire’. And yes – she does pronounce Saade …
