Yes, our most favorite weekday is here—Friday!

So, fellas made the weekend plans already or still stuck with that endless “last minute report” that your boss asked for? Just take a deep breath and relax!

We’ve turned out to be so caught up in a portion of tech innovations that we somehow overlook its absurdness. Give yourself a break and have a look these 10 weird (but true) tech facts of all time.

Here you go!

  1. There are more than 700 million iPhones across the world.

If you don’t have an iPhone, well you don’t have an iPhone!

 

  1. Changing Fonts can save Printer ink

2

 

That’s right, all fonts are not created equal. The theory is, if you use a ‘lighter’ font (with a lighter stroke), you’ll use slightly less ink per page. Based on the assumption that you’re only printing with inkjet printers that use the old-style cartridges you’ll likely save about 10 per cent ink by switching to one of the lighter fonts.

  1. Every minute approx. 100 hours of videos are uploaded on YouTube by users

Carrier pigeons beat internet upload speed as late as in 2010. They actually sent pigeons over with USB sticks the same time they started uploading a video over broadband. The pigeons won! Can you believe it?

  1. The first Alarm clock

The first alarm clock could only ring at one time of day, four o’clock in the morning. Arghh! Life is so cruel.

  1. The Vibration Syndrome

Yes, there’s name! It called the Phantom Vibration Syndrome, given when someone thinks their phone is vibrating but isn’t. Are you feeling the buzz too?

  1. Emails Existed before World wide web

Forget www and URL’s!  All you needed to send an email in those days was a computer and a rotary telephone for connecting to Micronet.

  1. More than 350 millionSnapchat messages sent every day.
