I remember I was talking with a group of friends about how amazing it is that technology has been advancing at an alarming rate. I was asking them if they remembered the old style iPhones. I remember I had this nokia iPhone that could withstand anything! I couldn’t tell you how often I entirely dropped that iPhone 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 smart iPhones these days, both 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 friend of mine started bragging how he controls his smart thermostat with his smart iPhone. 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 he was able to do that, did he have to install some sort of app as well as it just connected to the thermostat? He was saying that you had to purchase what is called a smart thermostat… You then get the smart app for it as well as you are able to connect to your thermostat via the Wi-Fi connection. He was saying how he could control the Heating as well as Air Conditioning plan from just about somewhere where he was able to get a signal with his smart iPhone. He told us how he would get notifications also when he should have maintenance done as well as when he should change his air filters. If I had something prefer 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 alarming rate since none of us even knew about it!
