In the United States it seems everything is at our fingertips. I remember when our family returned about 3 years ago from living in Bolivia. One of the first things we remember (even as we walked through the airport) was the amount of people with smartphones. Blackberries were the in-thing when we left and now everyone had a smart phone. We didn’t even know exactly what it did outside of connecting to the Internet. As an early 30’s adult it was weird walking into the Verizon store a month later and admitting to the attendant that we had no idea how they worked and if we even wanted one.
Now, Americans are essentially addicted to smartphones. According to a recent pew research study nearly half of all Americans admit they couldn’t live without them! 
What is it that draws us to our smartphones? Even more why have we become so dependent on technology and instant control?
