In a related development, the Internet of Things (IoT) is the burgeoning environment in which almost any entity or object can be provided with a unique identifier and the ability to transfer data automatically over the Internet.

You’ve heard the term ‘surfing’ on the internet, right? Well, it originated in 1992, courtesy of a New York librarian whose name was Jean Armour Polly. Even now, the term is used quite often, but other words such as ‘browsing’ have also become a popular addition.

Back in 2010, it was estimated that around 247 billion emails are sent in a single day. Fast forward to 2017, statistics group called Radicati Group estimates that around 269 billion emails are sent per day. Unfortunately, the majority of all them fall under the spam category.

The world’s first website is still alive and kicking. It does not come close to being glamorous because all that’s present is text and hyperlinks but the fact that it is still running is pretty impressive.

The internet is now 10,000+ days old. If you want to keep an exact track of the counter, you can always visit here and appreciate that you have access to free information anywhere and everywhere.

Approximately £1.7 trillion worth of funds is spent online. If you ever counted the hours you were online, you would definitely freak out.

Do you think the internet and World Wide Web mean the same thing? They are miles apart actually. The internet is a network of computers, while the World Wide Web is a bridge for accessing and sharing information across it.

Remember the You’ve Got Mail website? Would you be surprised if we told you that it is still running even after all this time?

The modern World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee was knighted by Queen Elizabeth. Perhaps royalty does recognize greatness because remember, Anthony Hopkins was knighted too.

Ever care to wonder what was the first image to be uploaded by the inventor of the modern day World Wide Web was? It was a joke band of women from the nuclear research lab CERN.

Let us bring some science into the equation; it takes around 2 billion electrons to produce a single email. Now imagine millions of emails being sent in a single day. That’s definitely a lot of electrons to be playing around with.

It is expected that around 40 billion gadgets are going to be connected to the internet by 2020. That definitely does not sound good from a security point of view.

Online dating might sound like a dumb idea but wait till you hear the amount of revenue it is generating. According to the latest statistic, online dating generates approximately $1 billion dollars every year.

Want a reason to be jealous of South Korea and Japan? These countries have the best internet right now because according to Akamai, the average bandwidth speed in these locations is 22Mbps. In comparison, the average internet speed in the U.S. is 8.4Mbps

However, Americans are experiencing a hefty level of internet penetration as approximately 78 percent of people living there use the internet. With English being the most popular language, there should be no doubt in that statistic.

The queries that you search for are just a minuscule percentage of the internet and is often referred to as the ‘Surface Web’. The remaining part is called ‘Deep Web’ and it is much larger than the Surface Web.

You cannot even use a regular browser like Google Chrome or Firefox to access the deep web and will need something that people know as ‘Tor’ to access the ‘Deep Web’. Be careful though, as there is a lot of strange stuff lingering there.

2010 was the year which saw a tremendous event taking place in the age of the Internet. In this year, Finland became the first country to make the internet access a legal right.

With every minute passing, there are 72 hours of YouTube video content being uploaded and that’s just one website. Imagine all the storage required to house all of this data.
