We can be asynchronous or connect when you need. Want to listen to Spotify, connect. Want to call Uber, simply connect. Want to pay bills, just connect. Need to Amazon, connect. Want to socialize – go have coffee or call a friend for a coffee. Want to inform yourself, skip Social Media. Instead, just read a book or two.
Good example of how one can control the internet, rather than sync with it make it anynchronous. Connect only when you need it, make the offline a default setting.
