There were many useful inventions in the 1990's. Two of the most helpful were the Video Chip (V-Chip) and the Digital Video Disc (DVD). The V-Chip has been a very helpful invention. Although the V-Chip was mainly invented for children, parents have probably valued from it the most. The DVD was another invention that mainly has made life easier for the people of America.
In 1995, Tim Collings, a Canadian resident, invented the V-chip. Tim came up with this idea because he was concerned about the impact that television violence was having on children. Then, he made a decoding device that would use certain signals, such as G, PG-14, and M. What these ratings do is let parents and children know what the TV show will be like. Usually before every show, you will see a letter or letters at the top of your screen. The letter "G" stands for Guidance, "PG" stands for Parental Guidance, "PG-14" stand for Parental Guidance for children under fourteen years old, and "M" stands for Mature. These signals have allowed parents to set boundaries for what their kids can and cannot watch. Also, if you have an honest child, they won't need to be told to not watch a certain show. If you tell them they can only watch "G" and "PG" then they would change the channel if the show were "PG-14" or "M". The V-Chip has helped parents and children all over the world.
DVD (Digital Video Disc) has made entertainment easier and more enjoyable
in America. With the advanced computer and compact disc technology
we have, we have been able to put full length movies on C.D. size discs.
Some advantages about having a DVD player are that the movies cases take
up less apace than VHS videos, there are more special features, and if
you fly on planes a lot, you can have DVD players built into laptop computers.
That has made business people less bored. The DVD has become a very
popular invention. Many people have benefitted from it greatly.
I think almost everybody in America has something good to say about this
