correlation between genetic mutation and mobile features

Intercepts are..
... Indians, Europeans and people from West Asia share a common genetic mutation that allows them to digest milk.
... Only 32 per cent of people world over are lactase-persistent and have the ability to digest milk and the genetic mutation enabling that process got evolved in the last 10, 000-12,000 years when humans started domesticating animals and began drinking cattle milk. Before that humans did not have that ability and constant consumption of milk over thousands of years made the body to adapt through mutation of lactase gene.
surprising to know that only 32% of human being can digest milk!!  and this ability is an acquired one!! 
thinking about acquiring the ability, is it like features getting added to the products like mobile.. 
Mobile Phone OEM's :  I need Bluetooth connectivity..  Research.. I will implement Bluetooth!
Human Gene : I need to digest Milk..  Research..  Implement the new feature!
I know it is a simplistic correlation.  But digesting milk seemed like an ordinary thing, until I heard this.  But for processing each Input, the body had to develop systems during its evolution!  Feel respect to..., but don't know whom - evolution or human or gene or or or God!!  Feels very small..
