DirectDial.com was launched to the public in 1997, 15 years ago. In celebration of our 15th Anniversary we thought it would be fun to take a look back on the last 15 years and the innovations of 1997 which have arguably shaped the way we do business today. Last week we highlighted 5 Innovations from 1997 that we think had the biggest impact in technology.
Here are our picks for the top 5 innovations of 1997
WiFi – The technology used in WiFi was developed in 1997 by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). WiFi is a popular technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data wirelessly (using radio waves) over a computer network, including high-speed Internet connections.
Google – Did you know the domain name for Google was registered on September 15, 1997, and the company was incorporated on September 4, 1998. In May 2011, the number of monthly unique visitors to Google surpassed 1 billion for the first time.
