TWQ: Easier and Harder To Do

TWQ (the Weekend question) asks what tasks do you think is easier and harder to do nowadays with modern technology around.

What tasks do you find easier to do nowadays with the advent of new technology? What others are harder? List as many as you wish.

My answers are:

Easier:

Shopping over the computer

Harder:

Talking over the phone to companies who require passwords, mother's maiden name and so on before they will even consider talking to you.

Setting up new technology in the house.

Now it's over to you....
