When I called her back, I heard our grandchildren screaming and crying in the background. Instead of discussing dinner, my wife frantically yelled, “David, get home immediately and fix the TV so the kids can watch their DVD.
This is not surprising because it takes a Harvard professor to operate our television.
“Turn on the TV with the u-Verse remote. Then turn on the DVD player with the DVD remote. Finally take the TV remote and change the function from TV to DVD…”
I recently wrote a blog on how technology is killing me. But I think 2012 will my year.
I’m pretty sure Apple will announce its new iTV by the end of the year. I understand it will function like the Siri iPhone. You’ll be able to tell the TV what you want. Find “Astro Boy” for instance. (My grandson watches Astro Boy once or twice a day). Voice activated TV—is life great or what?
I’ve heard the IPad3 will be out soon and I just assume it will incorporate Siri also. If you have the new iPhone you can already tell it what you want…soon you’ll be able to do the same with your tablet.
That’s pretty amazing. No one else in my life will do anything I ask.
These changes and many others that will be introduced this year will greatly improve the quality of my life.
But then there’s the technology break through I’m really excited about.
One day I’ll be able to say, “Computer, write this blog for me.” Now that’ll will be sweet.
