You missed the hidden context.
The Jewish disciples ask Jesus about His return to Israel, to the chosen people(the Jews) as prophesied by the prophets. So these are the things Jews will See and Hear, not necessarily the entire world.
Verse 2 says "see all these" referring to the temple stones, but does not mean for the world to actually witness the destruction of the temple in 70 AD. Only the Jewish people. So no Internet or technology is required.

The destruction of technology as we know it will occur either before or around this time anyway. If you know Revelations, Ezekiel chapter 39 and Zechariah chapter 14 and also interpret them just as literally, you will see this.
For these armies use no modern technology or weaponry in attacking Israel. Thus logically, none exists.(you don't bring swords, spears and horses to fight machine guns, planes and tanks).

Daniel 8

And the Goat comes from the west across the whole earth without touching the ground.


There are many examples in the bible where you can see it is not chariots referred to.

So why did Jesus say - Let the reader understand?

It's not the same old same old taking place here.

Just like burning those specifically listed weapons: "small shields, large shields, bows, arrows, clubs, personal weapons, and spears" as firewood, does not mean really mean they burn those as firewood, for 7 years, I suppose?
Deny it all you want, the Truth is the truth. It will happen as it has been written.

Eze 39:9 “After all this happens, the people who live in the cities of Israel will be kindling fires for seven years, using small shields, large shields, bows, arrows, clubs, personal weapons, and spears to do so. 10 They won’t need to cut down trees from the fields nor gather firewood from the forests, because they will light fires with the weapons as they plunder the plunderers and loot the looters!” declares the Lord God.

Up until lately it's literal fulfillment was not probable, but a world wide EMP war(WW3), would easily make the world revert to this level of technology.
With the current NATO/Russian warlike stance and threats anything is possible.
An EMP war would be considered survivable, rather than the Mutually Assured Destruction of a traditional nuclear war. So it is much more likely to occur.

I'm sure entire cities can't burn those "little" weapons for 7 years.

It has to be some kind of fuel - many say nuclear that could burn that long.

Corrected it to say can't burn.

And to add I agree with you - can't be small weapons.
