If the question was " most changed" the answer would have been the the cell phone and the follow on hand held personal computer. But most improved my life has to go to the microwave oven.

What say you?

@hawkeye10,
1. The microwave. iIt has made it easier and faster to prepare many foods. But, really good cooks rarely use them. On TV, the chefs seem to be cooking nearly everything over wild , hot flames.

2.The computer has lead to the development of the internet, which is probably one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century.

3.The conversion to digital TV has resulted in the development of many new programs such as free movies. In Boston, we now have two free movie channels, one channel devoted to comedy and two others devoted to very popular shows of the 1940s upwards.

4. A cell-phone is useful,and I love it for emergencies. However, I still have a landline phone, which I use for many calls and for using my computer on the internet.

@hawkeye10,
I am thinking about Klippo with Briggs and Statton Motor and it was constructed around 1985. What was used in other parts of the word I do not know and certainly did not improve my life
The first lawnmover of type rotor in Sweden was constructed by Klippo 1954 which is more than 50 years ago.

Well, if you're gonna be that picky, I'll withdraw my suggestion for flush toilets.

@neologist,
For some areas this more modern invetion is a plus
An incinerating toilet is a type of dry toilet that burns human feces instead of flushing it away with water, like a flush toilet does.
