That’s the thing about technology. It shapes and reshapes the world with every new announcement, every new launch and sometimes, with every goof up. 2017 was a mixed bag of everything. On one hand we had Elon Musk unveiling his plans to make inter-continental travel lightning fast by using rockets, and then on the other hand, we had massive cyber security breaches in the form of ransomware attacks. As if Twitter was not being abused by power-hungry despots enough, the microblogging site increased its character limit to 280. And speaking of Twitter, fake news managed to become one of the biggest news stories of the year. Ironic, isn’t it?
Nevertheless, we listed out all the stories that was big in tech this year. Some were were disappointing, some outrageous and some were outright futuristic, but all of them combined act as a precursor to what will go down in 2018, and by the looks of it, it’s not going to be any less crazy.
