Causes

Birth of the Internet

In 1969, ARPAnet delivered its first message: a “node-to-node” communication from one computer to another. The message was one simple word, "LOGIN" but it crashed the fledgling ARPA network.

During ththe 1970s, the network grew steadily. As packet-switched computer networks multiplied, it became more difficult for them to combine into a single worldwide “Internet.”

The 1st Monile Phone

Martin Cooper of Motorola made the first handheld mobile phone on a prototype DynaTAC model on April 3, 1973. A full charge took roughly 10 hours, and it offered 30 minutes of talk time. It was priced at $3,995 in 1984,

"People want to talk to other people - not a house, or an office, or a car. Given a choice, people will demand the freedom to communicate wherever they are, unfettered by the infamous copper wire. It is that freedom we sought to vividly demonstrate in 1973," -Martin Cooper

1st PC

IBM model number 5150, and was introduced on August 12, 1981. It was created by Don Estridge along with a team of designers and engineers. The term PC (personal computer) came to mean a desktop microcomputer compatible with IBM's PC products.

Technological Advancements

Apple
