What's gone obsolete?

Dial up internet, newspaper classifieds, and yellow pages may be no surprise... but do phone calls belong on the list?
Let us know your thoughs on what's gone "obsolete." As we end the decade, it's a good chance to take stock of how quickly technology has changed - and changed our lives.

U.S. Response to the Failed Plane Bombing

CNN has learned that the U.S. and Yemen are looking at targets in Yemen for a potential retaliatory strike. This is in response to Friday’s failed bombing of a Northwest Airlines flight. (Read the full story here).

What do you think of this plan? What do you think the U.S. response should be?

Would You Submit to a Full Body Scan?

Friday’s Northwest Airlines incident has people talking about a different type of airport x-ray called a full body scan. In addition to detecting regular weapons, this technology can spot liquid explosives, gels, and PETN (which the suspect in the Christmas-day incident allegedly used). The down-side of the technology: it gives airport screeners - but not other passengers–a very clear look at your body. Passengers can cover their private parts with a metal plate so that the operator can’t see, but the machine will still record the detail.

Privacy advocates call the full body scan a “virtual strip search”. Security advocates call it a life-saving measure.

What do you think?

How Safe Do You Feel When You Fly?

You take off your shoes to go through security, pour your liquids into tiny containers, make complicated arrangements to meet your ride since they can’t meet you at the gate or sit in the car in front of the airport. After Friday’s incident, security measures could get even tougher.

Our question: how safe do you feel when you fly these days?

The Gift Return Game

Gift returns – as much a part of the holidays now as gift buying. Stores are stricter this year than ever. Lose a receipt, open the cellophane, clip off a tag and you may be out of luck.

At 10:30 this morning, Fredricka will interview “Tightwad” Tod Marks from Consumer Reports. He has some tips for hassle-free returns. But we want to hear your strategies and stories too. Ever talked your way into returning an un-returnable gift? Ever been offered 1 penny for a $50 item because you didn't have the receipt? The good, the bad, the funny – we want to hear it all.

Post your stories here and Fredricka will read some of them on the air during the 10am ET hour of Newsroom.
