Has the new technology — touchscreens, iPads, smart phones, etc. — for the most part eliminated old sayings?

If you ask what I mean by old sayings, you’ve already answered my question. Maybe those old sayings have gone the way of the dodo bird.


Older readers may remember some that I remember hearing in days of yore:

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Busy as a bee.

Cool as a cucumber.

It takes one to know one.

Raining cats and dogs.
