How has technology improved your life?


Recommended Posts

Or, how do you use technology day to day?


Ill wake up in the morning, to a tablet beside my bed, streaming music (get a poor radio single in the bedroom) 


Ill use my phone to check the weather to see if ill be flying, and then use a whatsapp group to text all my students simultaneously.


The heating for each room will turn off as required depending on the day of the week, with a zoning heating system. 


When I dock my phone into my car, an app called automate it, will turn on the bluetooth, connect to the car, and launch waze automatically, which will then tell me the quickest route to work. 


On the way to work, ill blow up some portals in the online game Ingress


At work ill use whatsapp again, with the team I work with, as we can be separated across the airfield but need to communicate often. 


If im leaving work early ill turn the heating on at home from my phone, 


Ill use a petrol prices app to find the cheapest petrol on the way home. 


If im home before the wife, ill track her commute home, so I can time dinner for when she will get home. 


At the weekends, ill use a supermarket app, to find the cheapest place to stock up on my beer. 


Ill track deliveries from amazon etc, to know when to leave to go buy my beer,


Whilst at the supermarket, ill use a shared word document, me and the mrs share, with our shopping list on. 


Once back at home, ill use an odds matching software to work out which bets will guarantee me a profit.
