When the smartphone came around, we started a new era in online activity. The amount of online time in our lives skyrocketed, and we started doing pretty much everything on the Internet. We pretty much never logged out. Downtime was cut to a minimum, and even after we left the office, we continued to work like maniacs just to please the boss in hopes of a raise or even a promotion. If you are a freelancer or business owner, you definitely know what I am talking about.
