In today’s world how many people still have a landline phone at home? Probably not many. How many people still carry a portable CD unit or a digital music device? Again probably not many. And finally how many even people still even carry a laptop to search the internet with them at all times? Ditto, not many. Everything that previously required separate devices is now embedded in that single smartphone that has become ubiquitous, and now, things that require one’s actual presence, like gaming or gambling, can be done via that same device.
