In the early 1990’s we saw pagers take off and the birth of computer games as well with the success of computers. However, it wasn’t until the mid to late 1990’s when the Internet took off that the changes in technology were happening more in succession.

Aijaz ,Shaikh & Karjaluoto (2014) carried out a literature review on mobile banking adoption. In their research report journal they acknowledged that e-commerce continues to play a significant role in the international business environment.
