I remember I was talking with a group of friends about how amazing it is that technology has been advancing at an frightening rate. I was asking them if they remembered the outdated style phones. I remember I had this nokia phone that could withstand anything! I couldn’t tell you how often I definitely dropped that phone as well as it never broke. Also I could use it all of the time as well as the battery life seemed to last forever! I rarely had to charge the thing however with our smartphones these days, all of us have to charge them always as they are always losing battery life so fast. Of course, they can do so much more, as well as isn’t that the point? Well a neighbor of mine started bragging how she controls her smart control device with her smartphone. A lot of us were surprised at this, since it seemed none of us were aware of this sort of technology. I asked him how she was able to do that, did she have to install some sort of app as well as it just connected to the control unit? She was saying that you had to purchase what is called a smart control unit, however you then get the smart app for it as well as you are able to connect to your control device via the Wi-Fi connection. She was saying how she could control the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C plan from just about someplace where she was able to get a signal with her smartphone. She told us how she would get notifications also when she should have maintenance done as well as when she should change her air filters. If I had something enjoy that, I would never forget to change the air filters! I thought it sounded cool. I had to say that was a perfect example of our technology advancing at an frightening rate since none of us even knew about it!
