Peter G McDermott497,898This year’s theme pays tribute to all of the people who serve their friends and neighbors for the greater good. This type of salute is normally directed at our nation’s soldiers fighting for freedom across the globe and defending us here at home. And while we want to express gratitude to those brave men and women, our salute goes even further.  We salute our soldiers, our police officers, firefighters, public servants and everyone else who sacrifices their time or resources to make our community a great place to live.

Cloud/Crowdsourcing: Password-protected Photo Sharing

So far, I've been unable to find a product that allows you to share not only an album, but an entire photo collection. Let's say Team X wants to share albums with everyone on the team, for all of their 2016 events. Each even has its own album, and the team captain wants to be able to send out one link so the team can see all of the albums.

Apart from Dropbox, is there another photo-first cloud solution that works for this?

Red Thai Curry over brown Jasmine rice topped with flax seeds. The sauce is from Trader Joe's and makes this meal super easy. I sautéed boneless skinless chicken thighs with onion, Bell pepper and garlic and added the sauce (with some cayenne for extra kick) at the end until simmering. Quite a quick and delicious treat! #FoodAndDrink #Cooking #Thai #thaifood

Is the UI the next thing to go?

Perhaps the jump to ditching the UI to the evolution of AI is bit of a reach, however a great example of this article was illustrated in my wife's Infiniti luxury sedan this morning as we took our pet to the groomer. Running just a few minutes late, Brittani wanted to inform the groomer that we were on our way. From her steering wheel (read the article and you'll appreciate this reference) she pressed the phone button to activate the Bluetooth calling feature in her car.

The 6" LCD panel illuminated with a number of voice-activated commands as the automated voice read them aloud. After saying, "Make a Call" the car allowed her to "Redial, Recent Calls, From Directory" and several options. Brittani said, "PetSmart" to indicate the option to select from her cellphone's phonebook. The system recognized... more »

Is the UI the next thing to go?

Perhaps the jump to ditching the UI to the evolution of AI is bit of a reach, however a great example of this article was illustrated in my wife's Infiniti luxury sedan this morning as we took our pet to the groomer. Running just a few minutes late, Brittani wanted to inform the groomer that we were on our way. From her steering wheel (read the article and you'll appreciate this reference) she pressed the phone button to activate the Bluetooth calling feature in her car.

The 6" LCD panel illuminated with a number of voice-activated commands as the automated voice read them aloud. After saying, "Make a Call" the car allowed her to "Redial, Recent Calls, From Directory" and several options. Brittani said, "PetSmart" to indicate the option to select from her cellphone's phonebook. The system recognized her input as "Cancel" and said, "Call cancelled."

Brittani responded with a frustrated sigh.

From my pocket I pulled out my phone (I was in the passenger seat), pressed my thumb on the bottom to unlock and said, "OK Google, call Petsmart" Within seconds the phone was ringing as I put it on speakerphone so Brittani could hear.

My $300 smartphone outsmarted a $35,000 luxury automobile.

This example is how a user interface (UI) can ruin a user experience (UX). With Google's "Now" technology, I, as the user, can use contextual commands to have the phone perform certain actions. "OK Google, when does Petsmart open?" will result in "Petsmart is open from 8am-5pm today."

I imagine as users test out more commands without appropriate responses, Google will take note and build these into the list of available commands. And eventually, this program will learn how to become better at answering my inquiries.

Google Now serves as a prime example of an app with no UI. The screen has a prompt, with a couple of input options (voice or text) and several output options (text, text read aloud and photos, maps, directions). This type of app is the most useful of any on my phone and I look forward to other apps being able to function in a similar way. The end goal though, is for my phone not to have apps, but have permissions built in so no app is needed.

In the future, I imagine a phone where I can say, "OK Google, transfer $500 from my Ally savings to my Chase checking" or "OK Google, order me a tall latte Macchiato from Starbucks."

Those companies that I allow to interact with my phone will have opportunities to make transactions more seamless and improve their opportunities for purchase, a no-brainer as we observe more and more brick and mortars providing us options for mobile ordering.

The danger of this idea though, is that we rely on one design, the design of the platform, and through that we ignore the possibilities of innovation through independent design. As much as this might be a luxury for consumers, it may be a hindrance on the evolution of mobile technology.

Either way, it's something fun to think about.___

+American Airlines, the most profitable airline (according to figures in this article) is now offering complimentary snacks on all domestic flights! Great, now $25 for a checked bag gets you a foil bag of 14 honey roasted peanuts...

...is it possible that airlines could still be profitable without exorbitant charges for checked baggage and changing your flight?

Recently, I wanted to change my departure date by one day (plenty of seats on both flights) and I had to forfeit my previous ticket and purchase another. That's right, I had to pay twice to fly once to better suit my schedule.
