Obsolete

词性:adj.
音标:[ˌɑːbsəˈliːt]
释义:废弃的,过时的,老式的

render obsolete: Make no-longer relevant.

Use the adjective obsolete for something that is out of date. As the Rolling Stones song “Out of Time” goes, “You’re obsolete, my baby, my poor old-fashioned baby.”

Obsolete is from the Latin obsolescere “to fall into disuse,” and it is a very handy adjective for anything that is no longer used, from words to factories to computer software to ways of thinking. Something that is obsolete has usually been displaced by a newer, shinier innovation. Compact discs made records and cassettes obsolete, and then downloadable digital music files made compact discs obsolete.


I’m an obsolete design.


This entire autopilot system’s completely obsolete.


So basically, these scanners are gonna make us obsolete.
