The second digital revolution is coming, are you ready?
From the beginning of the 21st century, historians will remember a profound change in the economy: the 'digital revolution', where the dominant economic players no longer come from the fields of Energy or Industry, but the famous GAFA (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon) in Western countries and BAT (Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent) in China. This revolution is of the same magnitude as the industrial revolutions of the nineteenth century, or the invention of printing at the beginning of the Renaissance - but over a much faster timeframe. And this is only the beginning.

5µm thick double-sided tape improves thermal conductivity
As smartphone shipments worldwide are projected to reach over 1.71 billion by 2020, tesa UK is continuing to create and innovate the latest technology required to support electronic device manufacturers. Six years ago, much was made of the statistic that more people worldwide owned a mobile phone than a toothbrush.
