Which is a latest tool we picked up?
The latest one is a Casio ProTrek Triple Sensor watch. It has dozens of facilities I’ll substantially never use, yet is really cool!
What brands do we like and why?
Apple is my favourite brand. Their courtesy to fact is glorious and a user interface on their products is designed to interest to a user rather than to a operative who designed it!
What is your dream machine?
If income and practicality were no object, yet a doubt I’d buy a Tesla Model S electric car. The record in it is extraordinary and even yet we haven’t driven one, it has technology, power, conform and sustainability all rolled into a dream package!
What do we not like about technology?
Technology can be absolute as prolonged as we control it and strap it to improved a lives. All too often, yet it ends adult determining us and that is not a happy situation. The ability to undo from all a gadgets, emails, content messages, alerts etc. that constantly torpedo us and concentration courtesy on a desired ones or on a hobby or some other suggestive activity is something we should work tough to develop.

Sadly, my email app takes many of my courtesy on my iPhone. After that, my many used apps are Podcasts, Wall Street Journal, Google Maps, Adidas miCoach.
One funny/ sentimental version relating to tech (or a miss of it)
Sometimes record can get too intelligent for a possess good. Last year in a US a crony and we were stranded in a vast parking lot with a code new let car. We only couldn’t figure out how to tighten it. We would press a tighten symbol on a remote, hear a tighten clicking, travel away, wait a integrate of mins and travel behind to check a doorway and it would be unlocked! This went on for a good half an hour and we were roughly during a indicate of withdrawal a entertainment park to lapse a automobile when we started reading a primer and figured out what was wrong. It was a intelligent key. It would automatically clear a doorway for we when we got tighten adequate to a car! Made us sentimental for a days when we simply incited a pivotal in a doorway tighten and listened a calming ‘clunk’.
What’s a biggest tech disaster according to you?
The Iridium satellite phone system. It was forward of a time and designed by engineers yet sufficient courtesy to how users would adopt, compensate for and use a system. A shining technological attainment yet a blurb and selling disaster, holding billions of financier dollars down with it.
One instance where record solved your problem.
GPS is such an extraordinary technology-for me it has potentially been a matrimony saver! My mother and we have always desired holding pushing vacations, generally in Europe. Inevitably, yet any outing would underline a vital evidence between us on navigation or holding a wrong spin or some such thing. With my reliable Garmin GPS we can now happily discuss with my mother and kids on a road… if we take a wrong spin it simply guides me behind on lane – highlight giveaway vacations for a whole family!
