Everything is easier than what came before. That's about as close to tautology as you're going to get.
Public photocopiers killed the publishing industry. Why buy a book when you can copy it?
Or, wait, maybe it was the libraries. No sense in paying money for something you're only going to read once.
And I can clearly remember when stereo tape recorders played the death knell of the recording industry. That was, mmm, around the mid '70's wasn't it?
We won't even talk about software...
