The times we live in are, by far, the greatest in history for information and data. To be able to connect to a comprehensive database of human knowledge, theories and services with a couple of clicks and keystrokes is an immense privilege that we cannot begin to fully appreciate. With access to the internet now in handheld form, the human species is well on its way to becoming a technologically-driven race which, for better or worse, would see more information than someone 500 years ago would only dream of seeing in five life-times.
As of this year (2019) the number of mobile phone users is destined to reach a whopping 4.68 billion people, more than half of the world's current population. Considering that 'modern' smartphones only started coming out in mass circulation around the early 2000s, it is safe to assume that a majority of this countless community did not grow up around such technology and instead adapted when these useful handheld tools quickly became synonymous with everyday life.
