Computers  gave us smart-phones, which made lightning-fast communication  like e-mail  seem ordinary. Leading our parents and grandparents and friends  no matter where they live or what they do to expect all of us to stay in touch at all times. A keyboard of smiley faces and whales and crying cats somehow allowed us to plug into communication on steroids. Without speaking or even typing words using just one image your significant other could suddenly say "I feel a little bad for reminding you for a third time to take out the trash  but it's also something you need to do. Thanks! Love ya!"
