To say that technology has changed the world in just a few short years is something of an understatement. Take the way it’s affected our personal lives, for example. In 1990, the internet was a pipe dream — something that primarily existed on college campuses and in the military.
Ten years later, in 2000, the internet was everywhere and people accessed it in their homes via their desktop computers.
Today, over 40 percent of the world’s population is online — which breaks down to about 3.5 billion people. More than that, people’s primary means of accessing the web is via the small-yet-powerful smartphone so many carry around with them in their pockets all day long.
