Frozen was released in 2013, and the hype is still going strong.

7. By now, we have had our sassy phone companion Siri at our side for several years.

Siri was released in 2011 and has been back-talking us ever since.

8. Five years ago we never suspected ice cream could be revolutionized in such a way.

Unless you're a wizard of some sort (the core flavors came out in 2014).

9. Folks with short arms rejoice! We also managed to upgrade the way we take selfies.

As well as the Doritos Locos Tacos shells, both introduced in 2012.
