Our world is in a constant state of technological change and advancement. When some of the first mobile phones came out in the 80's they were big and bulky, weighing as much as 2 lbs. Over the years, the bulk has lessened significantly while capability and functionality have increased. Mere years ago, the average person wasn't thinking about how their phone could be used to surf the internet. Now, everywhere you go, there’s at least one person using their mobile device to access the internet.
