    Re: closely connected /relevant to ordinary life

    "close to" doesn't really work.
    "closely connected to" is OK.
    "relevant to" is OK but doesn't mean the same.

    Do you have something against the simple word "about"? Also, what do you mean by "ordinary life"? I wonder if you mean "daily/everyday life".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I would simply say:

    The IT industry has changed many things.

    Then I would talk about those things.
