These words, probably, are appearing on your screen somewhere in your favorite web browser. If you’re reading this on your phone you probably clicked on an icon to open your web browser to get here; if you’re on a laptop or a desktop you probably clicked on an icon too, though you also could’ve gotten here with a few keyboard commands.

One thing’s for sure about mobile technology – it helps us stay connected to what matters to us, from anywhere in the world.
