Today’s world moves at such a breakneck speed that it has transformed us into a society that loathes to wait. Online deliveries turn up at our doorsteps in two hours or less, credit card applications are approved near-instantaneously, and nobody has to wait a week anymore after an episode’s cliffhanger ending. Minimal delays is the name of the game — and we expect the same from our devices too.
