Year by year, the number of computers and other digital devices being used is increasing. The recent Pew Research Center Globalization Review  showed that 26 of the 36 countries surveyed had increased their computer usage. This increase is occurring simultaneously with an increase in usage of other digital devices, such as cell phones. In fact, in the United States alone 81% of the population now owns a cell phone, which is a 20% increase compared to 2002. Some countries, including Russia, have shown upwards of a 50% increase in cell phone ownership.
