The 2000s was a magical time of new technologies finally seeing public light. Two major innovations during the 90s (and late 80s), finally saw their debut among the masses at the dawn of the millennium. The first, was the rise of the internet. The world became connected like it never had before. With network speeds rising from under 1 megabyte to over 1GB in ten years, society saw a surge of people glued to their LED screens to check out the latest and greatest from popular websites. The second innovation was smartphones.
Since you probably have not heard amidst talks of new iMacs, iPhones, iPads, or other Apple products, Android released their fifth major instalment of their mobile operating system just weeks ago. The newest edition, nicknamed “Lollipop” is the same thing as Android 5.0. I will use the two terms interchangeably throughout this article. What has been most remarkable about the release is how nobody seems to have noticed.
