In his book Megatrends: Ten New Directions Transforming Our Lives, John Naisbitt (1982) described a world of the 80s that was embracing a new technology in which 75 percent of the jobs were computer dependent. This new technology has "invaded" every aspect of life from grocery store checkout systems, bank transactions, ordering in catalog centers, confirmations of charge card purchases, toll booth tickets, movie animation, office automation, and medicine to the computer system tied into a database providing access to almost any imaginable piece of information in mere seconds.
