“These devices will play video and music and, of course, display text; they will
let you navigate by touching your fingers to the screen; and—this is most
important—they will be connected to the Internet at all times. For those of us who
carry iPhones, this shift to a persistent Internet has already happened, and it's
really profound. The Internet is no longer a destination, someplace you 'go to.'
You don't 'get on the Internet.' You're always on it. It's just there,
like the air you breathe.”
