Where would we be, if not for technology? In caves? While that might be a little exaggeration, it is hard to imagine our lives without the omnipresent technology. The games we play, the films we watch, the music we listen to… recently even the books we read – everything is done using technology – the newer, the more advanced – the better. And we somehow got used to the fact that technology is expensive. Here is a secret: it doesn’t have to. Wanna know how is that possible?
