Over the weekend my car battery of 6 years decided it was time to die. I have to say VW maker's do not make it easy to remove and install batteries.

However, I found this handy "How To" video and was able (with much help from my Dad) to change the battery.

It's kind of funny when you think about it, I changed a car battery by following this YouTube video.

If I hadn't had a smartphone, I think my Dad and I would still have been struggling to figure out how to get that battery out.

Think about how many other things we use everyday that if we didn't have these things how different our lives would be.

Take a look at this link to the top 10 inventions we can't live without.

Could you live without a microwave, car, smartphone, elevator?
