It IS amazing how fast it started and then took over.
Everywhere you turn, some company is trying to force their app on you. It is no longer good enough to advertise on the radio, TV or signs, they want to be present in your hand, sending and bombarding you with ads and sales pitches. I realize some good has probably come from them in certain areas, but also some very bad. So many are never present wherever their bodies actually are and the innocent people that have died because someone couldn't stay off their phone while driving. Honestly it is all pretty crazy.
