Because now using a smartphone is too much work
« on: February 07, 2017, 12:42:06 PM »
I had to check it's not April 1st. The whole video seemed like a parody!

This really seems like a solution in search of a problem. Turning up sonos? Ohgod have to use my phone? Too much work! Hitting a light switch? It's several feet away!!
If these are problems in your life you've got it made.

This is a godsend. I mean, because the Sonos app starts with an S, and my apps are in alpha order, I have to swipe through THREE SCREENS of apps to get to the Sonos app. Do you have any idea how much time and effort that takes? It's like 1.5 seconds, and I probably have to burn half a calorie!!!!  And forget about it if I want to change what the Sonos is playing, because then I have to tap the screen a few times to find what I'm looking for. I could break a nail or something!

And you thought you had a difficult time finding a television remote...
Because your toaster got hacked because you tried to watch porn on your blender.

Ohgod have to use my phone? Too much work!

Isn't this the niche that the smart watch is supposed to fill? The horror of having to reach into your pocket or purse?

I thought that was the point of the smart watches or those little bluetooth Star Trek ear pieces people wear. Can't get any less painful than that. 

I guess a bluetooth mustache might be the next step.
