This is so true. I started played around 2001. Internet tabs were available, as was online shopping for gear. I pretty much stopped playing and paying attention to gear while I was in college (2005-2009), and have gotten way back into it in the past 3-4 years. I am absolutely floored with how many youtube videos there are for gear reviews, tips, etc. Just in that short time it seems the amount of information has exploded!
