Mind-Blowing
SmartPhones with browser capability were invented in 2001. I remember those BlackBerries. Could check email on the go and cost an arm and a leg each month, only executives could afford them.
The sales of smartphones in 2010 were up 72% and now they make up 19% of all cell phones in the US. I love my iPhone.
Facebook was launched in Feb 2004 for college kids. I still don't understand Facebook even though I've participated for 3 weeks now
Wonder if I'll ever get to liking Facebook. Wonder if I'll ever understand the marketing value of Facebook.
