The internet came along and changed our lives. Smartphones and super slim televisions are now standard the world over. But it wasn't always that way, oh no, it was better once.

Better how? We hear you ask. In plenty of ways. We lived happy lives before phones and email. We just didn't really notice the changes happening over the years.

From televisions and laptops slimming down as we bulge out, to phones actually getting weaker, tech has surprisingly affected us in ways we may not have expected.

But a selection of very witty artists have noticed all the changes that tech has brought and made light of them. Yes most of them are changes for the worst. But the way these changes are so obvious, yet we barely notice them, is brilliant.

We won't bang on about it anymore, just check out the gallery yourself. Click through and enjoy the way the world has changed without us even noticing.

Of course if you're someone born after the internet, or after smartphones appeared, then all this might not make much sense. It's still worth a click through to see how life was before tech took over.
