- Information Storage
World’s technological storage capacity increased from 2.6 Exabyte to 15.8 Exabyte during the Digital era.
- Information transmission
World’s technological capacity to receive information increased from 432 Exabyte’s to 1.9 petabytes during digital era.
World’s technological capacity to compute information increased from 3.8 x 10^8 MIPS to 6.4 x10^12 MIPS during Digital era.
Digital revolution has a lot of good and bad socio-economic impacts. Digital revolution has changed the ways of our lives in many ways.
