Sat Nav’s great – but will anyone under 25 ever be able to read a map (or know that Slough’s not that far from Maidenhead)? Digital cameras are great – but in the hands of teenage girls, they’re narcissistic weapons of mass social networking destruction.

    My other suggestion for a crap invention (couldn’t think of any good ones apart from possibly the wind-up radio / phone charger / torch etc.) was going to be the shopping trolley. Jesus christ, what a pile of rubbish the shopping trolley is! 2 million years of human evolution etc. etc.

    good point re. shopping trollies, though…
