The concept of webdesign apparently even didn’t exist at that time or was probably far from the priority. At that moment none of your friends used Skype in the subway, and the idea of making video phone calls through a 4G connected pocket-sized device was just not plausible, not even thinkable. Things have changed, such as traditional desktop yearly sales volume figures. The search giant Google even announced it plans to change its ranking method accordingly through a brand new algorithm.
