Connected devices give us access to an unlimited source of information — the Internet. They also serve as a reserve data storage for unmindful owners. Basically, the majority of smartphone users can be called “unmindful” — at least, as compared to their ancestors, who had no mobile phones at all.
With information easily accessible by the swipe of a finger, reliance on digital devices becomes quite natural. In our increasingly hyper-connected world, people simply have too many phone numbers, addresses, tasks and events in their calendar, account names, passwords, PIN codes and so on. We couldn’t remember everything even if we wanted to, but can access the information on demand when we need it via a connected device.
