A lot of cool things were released this decade. But no other personal technology influenced society more in the last 10 years than the following—in order of impact, because I said so.
- Cell phones (see also: SMS)
- Online search (aka Google)
- Self-publishing (i.e. Blogging, Facebook, YouTube)
- Digital cameras
- Broadband Internet
- Web software (Google Docs, Firefox add-ons, etc.)
- Really Simple Syndication (aka RSS)
- Gesture control (i.e. Nintendo DS, Wii, Apple iPhone)
- Global positioning systems (aka GPS)
- USB storage devices (i.e. thumb drives)
I’d probably put digital video recorders at no. 11. Am I missing anything?
