lol what a fail list. The only people who believe any of that crap probably aren't even 20 yet.
1) DVD players... I have 300+ store bought DVDs. I continue to buy them for shows and movies I like to watch. I don't buy them like I used to, but I still do... many others will as well. I don't expect any new media formats to come out except replacing dvd except that you may end up buying them packaged in flash drives.
2) Alarm Clocks? Really? Sorry, people sleep and don't like to wake up. Alarm clocks will be around for a long time to come.
3) Point and shoot cameras? Everyone who cares about some image quality will use a point and shoot. They're easier to take pictures with, hold billions of pictures and picture quality is much better. Until camera phones have built in flash, usable high iso settings and worthwhile zoom, they won't be replaced. At least another 5-10 years.
4) Laptops? Never. Most people will end up owning a laptop over a desktop. Quite a few people have never even owned a desktop or ever will. Only a small segment of computer users need desktops.
5) Anything wired? Having to recharge because your batteries are dying, interference from other devices or noise, etc... I will never use a wired keyboard or mouse. Ever.
6) Cloud storage? Is a hype/marketing/brainwash by large corporations who want to own everything digital that you might have... and charge you for the convenience. Sorry, privacy rights issues alone will keep a majority of users from falling into this scheme.

The scary part is that I'm not kidding.
Call quality of analog phones > digital call quality. I will always have a land line until digital stops dropping out or getting bad reception.
