Progress irresistibly pushes humanity forward to a bright and friendly future. Let's take a look back into the recent past in order to understand how the world has changed.

Communication has changed literally in a matter of a hundred years. Now if sending a message or you can call anywhere in the world. Speed ​​of information has declined sharply, the quality has improved, and the cost of all types of communications annually reduced.

  This is the connection, specifically the Internet, has become an outlet for saving disabled. Current technology, unfortunately, are not allowed to cure a lot of non-fatal, but severe, disease. Disease for various reasons do not allow many disabled people is not something that just go out on the street, and just chat with other people. Internet gives them the opportunity not to break away from life, taking advantage of the e-mail, social networks, blogs, chat rooms and forums.

In addition, our lives have changed thanks to mobile and mobile Internet. A variety smart phones, laptops allow people to work anywhere, anytime. Now, if the person is not related directly to the production activity, it may not come to the stuffy and cramped office, sit in a chair his eight-hour day, because most of the work to be performed on the computer, you can do at home, lying on the couch.

Changed lives and electronic money, as well as the use of a bank account by phone or online. Of course, it goes more than stood in line at the ATM, and then in the shop, but, you see, in our time, the opportunity to buy food or pay utility bills from the comfort of home is worth.

Technology have increased survival of the human species.

And what lies ahead? To do this is to look at fiction. Yes, fiction invented. But scientists have embodied! In fact, fantasy becoming reality right before our eyes. Enough to remember the 3-d movie theaters, movies in the format 3-d, to televisions and monitors supporting this format. A rapidly evolving online TV, nanotechnology, medicine. In conclusion I can say is that technology is constantly changing our life, make it easier, better, more interesting, bring an already near future, a future without hunger, disease-free, with no deaths.
