I read a lot of news and like to share a lot of it with friends, family, and professional networks using various services on the web. The easiest way for me to collect, consume, and distribute this content is through social media services such as Google Reader, Twitter, Facebook, and Email.
I'm also always on the go, and it's increasingly rare that I can devote enough time during the week in front of a traditional computer or laptop to read all the news, information, and stay up to date as much as I want to. Therefore, it's an easy investment for me to own a smartphone to consume content whenever I have a minute or two of downtime. This makes information consumption much easier and fits better into my schedule. I also recently purchased a tablet to fill the intermediate gap when the screen size of a smartphone just isn't suitable for some content, but a tablet is still portable enough to carry with me most of the time.
