If there are two trends that are now linked to the world we live in, they are technology and personal convenience. We benefit from, and are addicted to, gadgets and advances that make our lives better and easier, and we want them in hand. The smartphone that talks to us, navigates us, amuses us, and photographs us, in addition to allowing us to make calls. Years ago, when away from home, we had to go to a pay phone to make a call. Now, the phone comes to us, it is part of us, it rarely leaves our hand. The latest convenience can live right in our homes and in our pockets.
