Innovations making it easier for busy consumers to stay pious
Implications - As consumers take on busier schedules, it's natural for important activities, such as fitness, travel and even religion to fall further down the to-do list. However, with modern technology, more innovations are coming to the fore that allow devout consumers to actively and conveniently practice their religions, whether it's through a sin-confessing app or a Christian-themed tablet. While these innovations modernize religion (and perhaps, some may argue, dilute it), they ensure a stressed consumer can still be zealous about practicing his or her faith.
