Summary
This book looks at the social implications of having all of one's technology in a single device and the notion of being plugged into information and socially available all the time. Steve Jobs introduced the original iPhone as a combination of (just) "three revolutionary products" : an iPod, a cell phone, and a keyboardless handheld computer. But with the introduction of the App Store, it has quickly evolved into a tool capable of more than 300,000 functions and counting. Even more important, it is opening the way to what the author calls the "always-on? future, with far-reaching implications, both positive and negative, throughout all areas of our lives
