  • Commercial transactions, whether by dint of convenience or through the effective elimination of cash, have become entirely digital.
  • Internet-enabled devices capable of monitoring and digitizing domestic conversations have become ubiquitous; at least one such device is “awake and alert” in every household, at every instant of every day.
