2018 has certainly been quite a year for the tech and mobile world. We saw everything from the implementation of GDPR to Facebook being under fire for some major privacy blunder to the ushering of 5G, AI and automation technologies etc. All in all, the tech world continues to become a prevalent sphere in changing millions of lives and creating a seismic shift throughout the world as we become more and more connected.
