These four recent technologies actively changed (and connected) the world

 

The year 1995 might seem like a very long time ago, but it was the year when everything changed. If you had a DVD player then you had a top of the range entertainment system. Mobile phones were around and even though they were bulky, they were certainly worth the investment if you were in the business world.

WiFi was released for consumer use and if you had a router then you could easily access whatever you wanted on the go as well. You could unplug your network cable and you wouldn’t have to worry about a thing there. The internet has also given rise to sites such as Unibet Pennsylvania and similar gaming sites, sites which have been driven and thrived since the launch of reliable WiFi.

Search Engines

What good is the internet if you can’t find what you’re looking for? Without the advent of the search engine, we wouldn’t be able to navigate the internet with the ease we can today. The history of search engines can be traced back to the early-1990s, but really, search engines all bow down to the great Google. The search company not only revolutionized how search engines worked, but gave birth to the most-influential company of our modern times.

Google changed how we looked at and used web browsers, maps, paid ads, virtual storage and mobile phones. Speaking of which…

Apple’s iPhone

Even though Apple didn’t bring out the very first smartphone, it would seem that they got the ball rolling in 2007. Social media was on the rise and it wouldn’t be half as powerful as it is now if it wasn’t for all of the emerging tech out there. Social media platforms have also been optimized for users as well and this is incredible to say the least. Who knows where we would be if it wasn’t for social media, but at the end of the day, it certainly helps to keep the world much more connected.

Voice Assistants

The world has also been changed thanks to voice assistants. Of course, the world has certainly changed a lot but at the end of the day, it has also paved the way for new and exciting advancements. Voice assistants can now be asked to set alarms, turn the lights on and off and more. This is all fantastic and it has also helped to spur on the launch of the Amazon Alexa.

Of course, on top of this, you also have things such as the Google Home device. This takes all of the things that you have to do, and it puts it in an easy to use format so that you can be reminded about everything you need on a regular basis.
