Summary Where would we be without Google, Amazon, PayPal, eBay and How about email? So many things woven through the fabric of contemporary life began in the 1990s and none would have a bigger impact than the internet and the world wide web. Bill Gates and Microsoft dominated the decade and Steve Jobs returned to Apple. Of course there was a dark side to this brave new tech world in the form of hackers, online predators and the proliferation of pornography. The world didn't crash in Y2K but the dot-com bubble did burst, and the world would never be the same
