10 Tech Tools of Terror

The average American adult now checks their phone 150 times per day. There will be 26 billion autonomous Internet-connected devices by 2020.

Technology is now so intertwined with our daily lives and so ubiquitous in our society, it’s hard to believe that just eight years ago the first iPhone was released or that just 18 years ago the first social media site launched. It wasn’t until around 1995 that the word “Internet” even appeared on TV, according to The Atlantic.

Take a look back at the technology trends from years ago that today would have the average user shaking in their boots in FOMO.
