Web monitoring site Pingdom is reporting that in 2010 alone, there were 107 trillion (that's 107, 000, 000, 000, 000) emails sent worldwide. Out of the 107 trillion, 10.9 percent of it were actual emails, the rest? Spam.

Supposedly there are 1.88 billion email users worldwide, 255 million websites (21.4 million are said to have opened in 2010). Twitter is a defining force on the web with 25 billion tweets last year and 100 million users added in 2010. Facebook of course takes the cake with 30 billion pieces of content (links, pics, videos, etc) each and every month!

Facebook also added 250 million users in 2010. Insane.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
