This amazing animated GIF demonstrates the magic of tech innovation

It’s easy to take the modern-day wonderland we live in for granted. With desktop computers, tablets, and smartphones now more prevalent than ever, it’s just as easy to forget how cluttered our lives were before these technological advancements entered the mainstream and became commonplace.

Highlighting this rapid evolution, eBay recently put together an animated gif demonstrating how technological innovations have not only changed our lives, but have helped clear room on what were previously cluttered desks.

Behold, the evolution of the desk.

The animated gif moves pretty fast, but you watch closely you can see small little app icons flash across the screen to indicate instances where vestiges of a time gone by are now nothing more than distant memories.
