This "mid-week level" puzzle pays tribute to the way our lives have been transformed by modern technology.

After completing the puzzle (spoiler), learn more about the puzzle by clicking here for our "midrash." 

Click here to view or download the puzzle in PDF format; here to download it as a puz file; here to download it as an ipuz file [requires the free Puzzazz app to solve]; here to solve the puzzle interactively (thanks to Jim Horne); here for the solution. During the long incubation period leading to the present version, we benefited from the insights and forebearance of Noam Elkies, Michael Hanko, Brent Hartzell, Martin Herbach, and David Steinberg.
