It seems like everything we do is connected to our phones.
You can’t go anywhere without someone looking down at their phone and being in the way.
Going to a concert is so annoying with the talking, texting and picture taking. I also hate that people are totally insane and dependent about their phones. Sadly, I rely on my phone for way too many things. All my music is on that small device. When I work out, go for walks or cook in the house, my phone is used for the music. I also keep important notes, birthday gift ideas and passwords stored on my phone. Obviously I use it to contact people and send them pictures as well. The newest function my phone now serves is controlling my heating and air conditioning equipment. I recently updated to a smart thermostat and that runs off an app that you download onto the phone. I connect to the app and can turn on and off the HVAC. I can additionally set a timed schedule for heating and cooling as well. I pick the room, time and day of the week I want the temperature at. It really is quite neat. What is a nice little bonus is that anywhere with wifi allows me to operate my thermostat. On vacation, at work or just having a coffee, I can alter the HVAC to suit my needs. I even have it setup to receive air filter alerts, energy waste alerts and indoor air quality help texts to my phone. I hate that I’m dependent but I love my new thermostat.
