You thought smartphones were as good as they could get. And honestly, they
probably have come pretty close to the top. However, there are still a
million other things that can be turned smart and controlled with your
smartphone. Your homes, cars, and much more may be controlled with your
smartphones soon. Apple and Google have been working to build more
smartphone technology into your life.
Google's acquisition of Nest
Nest is a company that builds smoke alarms and thermostats for your house.
They are connected to your smartphone to allow you to have control of your
home no matter where you are, and they are all controlled with smartphone
technology. The thermostat even remembers when you are usually home and
controls the thermostat accordingly to save energy. Google bought Nest
recently, showing its obvious interest in creating more smart technology
for you to live with every year. With the purchase of Nest, Google now has
access to the engineers who helped develop the Nest technology.
Apple's new watch
Another thing we are seeing is Apple's interest in smart technology. One of
these things is a possible iWatch, according to Reuters. The watch would do
more than just tell time and answer calls. In fact, this watch would have
the ability to check signals from your heart and determine your current
health stats. It would check heart rate, check for possible blockages, and
listen to your body working in case of potential problems. This kind of
technology could bring huge advances to the medical world allowing us to
live longer and avoid potentially life-threatening problems. Wouldn't it be
nice to already be in the hospital getting treatment before you have your
heart attack? It would be great if the doctors could stop a blood clot
before it got serious. Preventative care like this would be amazing,
especially if it included a watch that could continuously monitor your
Another big one that both Apple and Google have been looking into is a
smart car. Google already has the self-driving car that has had thousands
of successful miles driving around the country, but Apple is also looking
into cars that can be controlled with your smartphone. Of course, if Apple
creates anything that has smart technology incorporated into it, it will be
labeled with an "i" before it. The iCar might be a real possibility in the
next few years, allowing you to constantly stay connected.
More connected opportunities
As a business owner, having your customers more connected makes it easier
for you to access them and constantly advertise to them. They will be
bringing this technology into their homes of their own choice and will make
it easier for you to advertise in their homes, cars, and on their phones.
Get started now, so you are ready for the day when everything has turned
into smart technology. If you move with the changing technology, you'll be
much better off than the rest of the competition.
