IoT is going to kill your smartphones

http://www.infoworld.com/article/3186863/internet-of-things/iot-is-going-to-kill-your-smartphones.htmlI don’t remember when I last used my phone.

Seriously. No, really, I am not a tech-denying hipster who brags about using command line for everything or who uses technologies that are deemed ancient even by the Amish community’s standards. I don’t live under a rock. On the contrary, I live on the cutting edge, using the latest technologies as and when possible.

What I actually meant was that while I was using my phone, I was not using it.

As a writer, I spend a lot of my time in a web browser reading, or in a word processor writing. I utilize my laptop exclusively for work and personal use. I tried the iPad Pro and bought all the possible keyboards for it, but it can’t replace my laptop as a primary typing device let alone do all that I do on the laptop — image and video editing, working with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, manage 3D printing, run virtual machines to review and test different distributions, manage my servers and websites, and much more. Don’t trust Tim Cook when he said that the iPad Pro is going to replace the laptop.

I work from home, and my office has a 4K TV and Sony PlayStation VR where I enjoy watching TV shows and movies. When I’m traveling, I bring my Google Pixel phone with the DayDream headset to watch movies on a huge virtual screen.

Whether I am at home or traveling, AirPods are plugged into my ears 9-5 (except for when they need charging), which I use to listen to music, make and receive phone calls, interact with Siri to check the weather, send messages, set my appointments and alarms, and much more.

I have both Amazon Echo and Google Home, and I use them to play YouTube videos on my TV and play music in any room of the house (thanks to Chromecast integration with Google Home).

Since MacOS offers integration with Apple’s Message app and can run Google Hangout, I manage my chats and messages from the laptop. Read more…
