Last century saw more inventions than the whole recorded history of mankind.
It is a popular belief that Information Technology saw the most advancements. Well that’s not really the case. In reality the medical community is the one that made the most discoveries. These advancements are very promising.
Every month there is a big new announcement being made by the medical community. This is not to say that IT is lagging far behind either. Information technology has seen its fair share of growth also. Unfortunately some of it is quite controversial. Let’s take reverse phone book look up as an example. Before if you wanted to get a name of a person you would need to manually look for the phone number in a telephone book. Can you imagine sifting through all of these phone numbers? I sure can’t.
Today you can run reverse phone look ups directly from the comfort of your own home. Simply visit a web-site like:ip-oogle.com/2/index.htm enter the phone number and voila.
