Starting with smart phones, smart devices are now extremely affordable and are with us pretty much every moment. This accelerates the flow of data and allows us to use time efficiently.
These four have been this way for a long time because of the revenues they bring and the cut-throat competition they have within their respective environments. A fifth, previously not-so-hot, industry seems to take the lead in research and advancement very recently because of the circumstances, Medical and Healthcare.
