This machine before your eyes is extremely powerful, a machine that grants its user access to all of the information conceived by the human species. It is capable of performing highly complicated mathematical calculations thousands, possibly millions of times faster than your typical human, and can store massive amounts of information, perhaps a library filled with thousands of books stored on this little machine, too massive for a measly individual to read in their lifetime, is reality.
When these sophisticated and wondrous machines had begun to appear in the 80's and 90's, the savvy individuals saw them for what they were, highly capable machines that would greatly change the world. They had taken advantage of this, and they became the first hackers, people armed with these extremely powerful tools. Companies and marketers observed this new medium and knew they could gain great wealth using it, and the mainstream mediums with the purpose of entertaining were born.
If only people knew just how powerful that little "phone" in their hand truly was. What a great time to be alive, so many ignorant fellows bickering about the problems in the world and how the past was such a great era, with no knowledge of what is truly happening at this moment.
