Some 270 billion e-mails are sent throughout the world every day. Around 2.5 billion people own a smartphone. Estimates suggest we’ll be downloading around 300 billion apps a year by 2020. What used to be inconceivable is now a matter of course: the smartphone has become our chat room, alarm clock, control center, GPS device, news channel, and movie theater all in one. You can take photos, make videos, go shopping, and play games with it. You can make—or break—your relationships over it. You occasionally even hear about young people making phone calls on it.

You’re seeing the consequence—the most varied issue of Christophorus ever produced.
