This time about 10 years ago, Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected the “Governator” of California, Apple launched iTunes, the world was on edge as the SARS outbreak filled newscasts worldwide, and the United States announced its plans for an invasion of Iraq due to an imminent threat from weapons of mass destruction.
Clearly, a lot can change in 10 years.

Check out the highlights:
– In 2003, 5% of households were connected to the internet v. 2013, where the average American household has five internet-connected devices.
– In 2003 15% of retailers had in-store pick up as a fulfillment option, as compared to 2013 where 53% of all online retailers now offer flexible delivery or in-store pick up options.
It really is crazy the difference a decade makes.
