Portability and the ability to be constatnly connected to the world would be considered by many to be the most important aspect of the computer and electronics revolution.

The internet, smart devices, and social media have revolutionized the way our nation interacts with each other on multiple levels.  The day for most Americans no longer begins with a newspaper, but rather a log on.  When making a cell phone call is inconvenient, Twitter, texting, and Facebook keep people constantly connected across the planet. Hundreds of millions of people meet monthly on online dating sites and the resulting marriages have skyrocketed in recent years.
