Half a century ago the future was often depicted with the image of a world full of flying cars, a prophecy that has not come true (at least not yet). On the other hand, as far as we know, no one predicted that we would carry a small device in our pocket from which we could access (almost) all of humanity’s knowledge. What is more incredible: a flying car or watching live on your cell phone an event happening on the other side of the world?

The Internet has changed our lives and some experts even argue that it is altering human beings. The truth is that it only takes a few clicks to access digital rivers of information. That’s why we have gathered in this small report 10 famous websites specialized in IT news. They are not all there are, but they are all there are. We have arranged them in strict alphabetical order.
