Written news was first delivered by an elaborate courier service used by the Pharaohs nearly 4,500 years ago. About 2,300 years later, Romans would post public announcements via bulletins carved in metal or stone. Fast forward 1,600 years to the first monthly handwritten gazette published in Venice, the forefather of modern newspapers, which didn't become commonplace until the early 17th century.
The rest is history. Radio, television, and finally, the dawn of the digital age.
Now, newspapers struggle to stay in circulation, magazines have become staples of waiting rooms rather than home coffee tables, radio is used mainly as filler while we sit in traffic, and television has become a mess of reality shows and biased "news" channels. And we have the digital age to thank for this.
With the internet came blogs and online journalism, and anything from CNN to reddit can be used as news sources, which are available whenever we're in front of our computers. As of this year, smartphones overtook sales versus older "feature" phones for the first time worldwide. As such, these phones have become our new go-to for instant news and information.
