From reading Carr’s The Shallows, it seems one of the benefits of the web is that we have quick access to loads of information. “I couldn’t begin to tally the hours or the gallons of gasoline the Net has saved me. I do most of my banking and a lot of shopping online. I use my browser to pay my bills, schedule my appointments, book flights and hotel rooms, renew my driver’s license, send invitations, and greeting cards.” (Carr 6)
This instantly reminded my of Google Now, which is a feature you can have on android and iPhone. The point of Google Now is to have quick access to the right information at the right time with a swipe of your finger on your phone. If you use Chrome for your browser then it collects data from what you search on Google and your interests. For example, if you book a flight and hotel for a vacation then Google now will have that information ready the day of your vacation. Also, it will have your boarding pass for you flight as well. Here are some Google Now cards.
