Happy Thursday, technology fans! This is Brett Molina, who is stopping my Wordle round to bring you the latest in technology.

As a technology reporter, it’s always fun when a game goes viral. Remember Flappy Bird in 2014, a popular mobile game that encourages us to carefully tap our thumbs on the screen to make our favorite bird fly over obstacles? In fact, it was so popular that the developer removed it for fear we were too addicted.

Then we played Pokémon Go in 2016, and then we wondered why the crowd was standing in front of the grocery store just to see if they wanted to catch Snorlaks.

What else has happened in technology?
