Modern technology gets a bad rap for stealing our privacy, brainwashing us, making us depressed, turning our kids into zombies... but besides that, it's still pretty great.

A new study calculated how much time is saved by all this technology we use. Turns out we're saving a full two weeks a year. That adds up to nearly two-and-a-half years in your lifetime.

These are ten of the things that save us the most time:

  1. Online banking
  2. Email
  3. Microwaves
  4. Online shopping
  5. Cell phones
  6. The TV remote
  7. Laptops
  8. Self checkout
  9. Frozen meals
  10. GPS
