Like, are you going to have threads dedicated to you surfing the web? Or using a smartphone? Because I don't see either of those things being super important to your plot. Or, you know, important at all tbh.
And yes it is going to be super important later on. Eventually I want to make an actual AI, but starting off with I'd need something like Siri/Cortana. And my upgrades to the Phones will allow:
1) Realtime strategy, planning, and ground movements of Shinigami, Hollows, and Humans. Allowing more coordinated military combat.
2) Rather than GPS, a centralized tracking system, and alert for when in danger.
3) Better networking and communications between Shinigami.
4) A Google Map type function displaying where and how far Shini, and Hollows are. As well as eventually the ability to show the names of known Hollows (rather than just red dots) [optional for users], and predict their movements outside of battle.
With the eventual evolution of a truly smart phone system. With an actual AI, not a rip off clone, or starting off as a super advanced system out of the blue. It's going to basically be an assistant, pet, and secretary all rolled into one. And one that controls all the functions of the phone itself. But that's why it's important I know. Where exactly things are. So I don't spend days, or hundreds of thousands of words. Developing something that already exists. So that I could get to where I want things to be, to get started on my real work.
And in time I'm going to be giving Smart Phones and Internet to Rukongai. Which is still stuck in the 1800s. So that'll be a plus for them, and be important to my character's life goals. Give greater presence of Shinigami in Rukongia, and allow for easier communication of those Shini working in more remote locations of Rukongai.
So as you can see. Super important. And freaking huge. That's why I need to know, and what I've already talked to my Captain about doing. I just need to know how much work I need to accomplish.
