- paying cash to the babysitter
- inconvenient file transfers
- almost missed some text messages
- certain websites won't load
- less convenient video conferencing
- have to read books to your child
not to say that what those companies are doing isn't bad, but this experiment shows that cutting them out is still quite possible.
Everything being hosted on AWS might be the most worrying.
