Many periods of history can be characterized by new kinds of amenities which were either not commonly used or unheard of before but which started being regarded as desirable or even absolutely indispensable. It doesn’t mean that the importance of such novelties overshadows the significance of other processes or events but it gives a more thorough understanding of factors that determined the way people have been evolving.

By the end of the 20th century such conveniences as showers, air conditioners, electro heating, fridges, TV, phones etc. had become customary. Not every household could boast having a personal computer then (let alone Internet access), however it wasn’t a luxury article that only the rich could afford.
