Just as phonebooks are quickly becoming obsolete, so too is wandering from lot-to-lot in search of your dream car. Getting exactly what we want with swiftness and ease is a matter of working smarter — not necessarily harder. Living the good life is within reach if you're savvy enough to use the tools to access it.

Need a one-of-a-kind accommodation in a new city? Hop on Airbnb. Looking for fine dining cuisine without leaving the house? Fire up the new David Chang-backed app Maple. Inventive applications of technology are making getting what we want faster and easier — whether it's the latest app or a new must-have piece of hardware.

More than ever before, consumers are tapping into new solutions to attain access to what they want. Looking for a shortcut to luxury behind the wheel? L/Certified by Lexus gives savvy consumers a speedier pathway to the car of their dreams and the luxury experience they're searching for.

Every L/Certified pre-owned vehicle comes with the same exclusive owner benefits Lexus is known for. Step into a state-of-the-art Lexus sooner than you would ever expect by choosing L/Certified by Lexus, a collection of pre-owned vehicles that stand apart, available exclusively at a Lexus dealership.

Want the convenience of having your own private helicopter? Book a ride with Uberchopper to beat the traffic. Always wanted your own private butler? Simply download one with Alfred — the butler app that does your laundry, stocks your fridge, cleans the house, and runs to the post office for you. Let this app run its magic in the background of your life and come home to find your chores taken care of.

It's not just about knowing what you want, but knowing how to get it. Apps help us with everything from delivering fresh groceries to reaching fitness goals. There are a wealth of solutions that make a life of luxury an everyday reality.
