There is no doubt that times have changed dramatically since the 1900’s. In the year 1908, Henry Ford introduced the Model T automobile to society. This was the first car to be economically available and within reach to the average American family. Ford was able to streamline the process of production through the development of the assembly line. An assembly line is a mode of production where a good is passed from station to station and progressively assembled. Ford, in effect, completely changed the way that society was run, from that moment on.
The birth of the assembly line catapulted the world into a different dimension. Not only were products produced faster, they were also made more reliable and of a higher quality. It is through the ever changing flow of technology and ingenuity that our world economy has been able to grow and reach new heights. Today, every product from cereal, to toothpaste, to smartphones is made in mass through this invention, and then transported through various mediums.
The great thing about technology is that it doesn’t stop. The world is constantly moving in a forward motion. Here are some perks of technology.

You Can Bank Online
Did you know that in Ancient Rome, all money was kept safe in the religious temples? This wasn’t a very safe mode of money management, and often, temples were robbed because they didn’t have efficient means of protecting their assets. It wasn’t until the Romans took it into their own hands, to separate the two entities, that banks were even formed.
Now days, because of the invention of the World Wide Web, you don’t have to worry about finding your way to the bank amongst the busy hoards on the streets. You can simply log onto your banking provider, via your smartphone app, and instantly have the money you need to travel the world, or send your internet lover a gift over those long distances.
