Technology advances so quickly these days and trends come and go in a flash, so it’s guaranteed that some things we have in our lives right now won’t be around when the year 2030 rolls around.

And it’s gonna be here faster than you realize…

What do you think won’t exist in the year 2030?

AskReddit users shared their thoughts.

1. Great…

“Probably everything that isn’t a subscription service.

You will own nothing and you will be happy.”

2. That’s scary.

“Water in the Colorado River.

First federal water emergency was just declared for the river.

First time ever.”

3. Too big.

“Amazon, as it is today.

Spicy answer, but it’s already too big, and bezos has already stepped down from leadership. It’s plagued with quality control issues that are outside it’s ability to navigate, full of fake reviews because it’s easy to manipulate, and people are already catching on.

I think Amazon will turn into more of a 3PL/logistics company for other businesses, since that is what they have always done right.

But things like Shopify enabling an army of small businesses to use the same tools but deliver better products and service are a major threat. And every large Corp in the world is trying to compete now, with the same or better level of service/convenience.

Amazon was revolutionary in that it forced companies to compete on their level of delivery. But once everyone does, Amazon doesn’t have their monopoly anymore.”

4. Taxi!

“Taxi drivers.

Before Uber sold its self-driving car division in late 2020, there was a running joke that Uber drivers were working to put themselves out of work, as Uber reinvested millions of dollars in fare revenues back into its driverless car projects.

While problems beset Uber’s automated cars, I still struggle to see how taxi drivers do not become obsolete in the next 10 years. If you run a taxi firm, it would be madness to pay someone money to drive a car for you when you have a vehicle that can drive itself!

Demand may leave a market for human-driven taxis, but these will struggle to survive as automation will drive prices down.”

5. Let’s hope so.

“Hopefully HIV/AIDS (at least for people who get vaccinated). The progress with mRNA vaccines is exciting!

As a gay male, HIV is a constant fear of mine, and I cant wait until our community has one less thing to worry about and feel stigmatized for.”

6. The future!

“Cashiers in big grocery stores.

The Walmarts by me are phasing out cashiers and alot of places are doubling the self checkout lanes.”

7. Sad.

“Upward social mobility.

As the wealth gap continues to widden, by the 2030s, short of a miracle like winning the lottery, the vast majority of people will be locked in their current social class from cradle to grave.

Getting poorer will be the only actual possible movement within the social hierarchy.”

8. That’s not good.

“Debate, if you don’t agree with someone, you’re wrong.

You don’t have a different set of values or beliefs, you’re just wrong.”

9. Where did it go?

“Freedom as we know it today.

I’m an EU citizen.

We will get restrictions by the day and for some reason we just don’t care.”

10. Maybe…

“The platforms used by Wall Street for stock manipulation.

I think trading as we know it will be replaced by a better, more efficient platform what promotes fair trading and transparency unlike our current one.

Potentially triggered by an upcoming global economic crash.”

11. Perhaps…

“Taiwan as a free nation, American dollar being the dominant currency, privacy regarding any form of technology and probably the medium western class.”

12. A digital world.

“Missing office work or school due to extreme weather.

Everything has an online option now, and a lot of people have either solar panels or generators on their houses.

Schools and workplaces won’t accept extreme weather as an excuse to not be there by 2030, that is my belief.”

What do you think won’t exist in the year 2030?
