It's been pretty hard to keep to such a hectic life. It always seems like the more stuff I get done, the more stuff there is left to be done.
No matter what, I'm going to start blogging more about some of the work I do creating mobile apps. There will be screen shots, code snippets, and maybe entire projects. I'll also show how to work with the web and cloud as well. Integrating mobile apps with the cloud is pretty much what the future of computing is going to be all about. Imagine your entire home, controlled from anywhere in the world with your mobile phone. All the food you have in your refrigerator and pantry will be tracked, foregoing having to make a shopping list. Information gathered from all of the gadgets in your house will automatically generate a list of all the food you need to buy. The lights will turn on once you enter a room. Your sofa will automatically adjust to your own comfort. The TV will automatically turn on at the time of your favorite programming and automatically check your email during the commercial breaks. With the entire "Smart Home" there will never be the need to remember to do anything anymore. Your home will take care of it all for you. It will even clean the house when you are not at home during the day!
To be pragmatic, this kind of living is not that far off. We have the technology to do it. All we need now is the will power and the initiative to implement this in a low-cost ubiquitous way for all people to have. In addition, the public would need to be educated that this is not going to be the end of the world and that they have nothing to fear.
