Google told me it has something to do with cooling, probably computer cooling but i am not sure.

Mine would be the digital camera, for various reasons (some i am unable to talk about on the Internet, a girl IS involved ;) )

I invented a sandwich with peanut butter and catsup and pickles and baloney. It's pretty cool.

It's probably something really obscure. Most of the cool stuff was invented in the 19th century.

They made Ununoctium this century. It has no practical value whatsoever, but it's the first synthetic noble gas ever created!

Yes, the military operates exactly as it did in War Games. When will they realize this and beef up the security?

Actually, after having met a navy launch officer, I learned that the US Navy, at least, has REDUCED security. You no longer even need to enter a code to launch. You just select a missile on your console and pull a little trigger and it starts the automated launch sequence. No checks at all, no security.

Two experienced launch officers are now sitting in brig because they were so shocked and alarmed by this new design that they decided to defy their orders and change their system back to the old, secure launch method.

hrm, since 1998... most of the things I think that are cool were (in some form or other) around then:
broadband and wireless internet, multiplayer gaming, LEDs, TFTs, SSDs.
Actually bad: x86 has become the only platform for consumers.

Most things I can think of are pieces of code like Freenet, Bittorrent or porn video sites, but in the end I say:
USB flash drives.

They work by quantum tunneling!

How cool is that?!

First quantum computer, 2007.

Even though it was thought of a long time ago.

The Internet...or at least it's mainstream availability.

Personally, I can't really remember what I was doing in my spare time before we all had access to it. Maybe living. Haha.

It's astounding they don't care enough about security that the officer discuss this in casual conversation with folks they've just met.
