Speak to someone on the other side of the planet….
Who is 12 hours into your future or past.
Keep abreast of the latest world news and celebrity gossip….
From the top of a moving bus.
Know the latest ill-considered thought of a world leader….
Whilst sitting on the loo.
Find and buy almost anything….
Including things you can’t afford,
Encounter racist/sexist bigotry….
In your own living room.
Lose a fortune on 24/7 gaming sites….
Under the influence of alcohol.
Know which celestial objects are overhead….
By day or through cloudy skies.
Find a route to an unfamiliar destination….
Without knowing which street you are on.
Gain or drop friends on social networking sites….
Regretting it the next day.
Look up the definition of unknown words….
Without needing to know how to spell them.
Deny yourself the freedom to switch off….
In case you miss something.
