A few years ago, maybe 2010, I saw a man watching a movie on his phone in a plane. I remember thinking that was ludicrous; impossible, silly even to attempt. Now, of course, I know about all kinds of apps where I can download movies and play them on all sorts of devices. But I remember thinking, that's absurd. A movie? On a phone? On a PLANE?

Later, I learned people could read on their phones, too. Absurd, I thought. Who is too busy to read a book in its own, personal form? I was still struggling with the concept of e-book, let alone a...phonebook? Meaning was all over the place.

And now, in 2014, I watch movies or read books my phone; in fact, reading or even listening to books on my phone is often the only time I have to read books. My phone is my other hand, my friend and organizer. It is Q and Miss Moneypenny and the great Library all in one.
