Years ago, taking a holiday abroad that required you to fly most likely required a good deal of financial planning. Fast forward to 2013, and like me, you probably get emails from low cost airlines offering you flights to European destinations for less than £1.
Remember your first mobile phone? You probably thought it was the pinnacle of human achievement, when in fact it was large, clunky, heavy, and had limited functionality. Only a few years later, small, lightweight, and stunning mobile phones are available that offer almost limitless technological functionality. Not only has the hardware dramatically evolved, but the price has plummeted. Price plans that include a phone and unlimited calls for less than £30 a month are not uncommon.
Much like air travel and mobile communications, the use and function of websites has completely changed from only a few years ago. High quality air travel, mobile phones and more recently websites, were once the exclusive privilege of the wealthy, but are now available to us all – and are far more affordable than could ever have been imagined even 10 years ago.
