Sitting at the computer this evening, it struck me just how archaic the process of turning on a computer and sitting at it, physically inputting data via an object that requires physical interaction (fingers pressing on plastic keys), has become. I long for the day when technology has evolved to the point where it is…… Continue reading Human biology and technology integration
Pebble has just announced that it is shutting down operations, having sold to Fitbit. I find this to be a thoroughly disappointing move, not because I was amongst the first to back Pebble on their original Kickstarter but because, yet again, a company with an amazing product, that set itself aside from the mainstream, has…… Continue reading Thoroughly Disappointing: Pebble is Shutting Down
