What change do you resist? Even if it's better
Inspired by reading a thread where people were arguing the merits of corked vs screw top wine bottles. Screw top being being better sealing and resealing, more consistent during packaging and easier for consumers to handle. Many still resist changing from cork though.
One of mine : The digital cell phone. They're clearer, they're more spectrum efficient which leads to them being cheaper per minute. More battery efficient too and tiny. All sorts up upside - and I can't stand talking to someone on one. The codecs are so compressed I feel like I'm talking to a robot half the time and the other half they're dropping pieces of the conversation. Back to analog!
What "New And Improved" thing do you wish you could send back?
Or changes in society, law - something where you prefer the past?

Idiot-proof cars. I don't need the car to tell me when my headlights should be on, or that I should buckle up."I'm not a coward,
I've just never been tested
I'd like to think that if I was,
I would pass"

Light bulbs ... when I was growing up they lasted forever.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. - Leo Buscaglia

The laws against dueling.
We are the thin blue line

And no you can't have any.

Automated phone systems that require you to listen to 25 recorded messages all while pressing 1 for this and 2 for that until 7 minutes later you are finally connected with a human being who answers your question in 15 seconds.
And if it is one of those recorded voices that I have to answer, I go from zero to angry in about 2.3 seconds.

Some take delight in the carriages a rollin'
and some take delight in the hurley and the bowlin',
I take delight in the juice of the barley,
and courtin' pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early...
