  15. Hi 5W,
    This was challenging to decide on some favourite inventions so I decided to think about what invention has changed the way I live my life in recent years, and decided it was SKYPE. It used to cost me so much money to make phone calls to my family or friends living in other countries. But since Skype was invented, it means I can speak to them – and even video chat – for free over WiFi!
