From lifestyle based technology to technology based lifestyles

Now that we’ve shifted our clocks for daylight savings time in the US, I’m once again amazed at our dependence on devices with integrated clocks  to manage our lives that all have software written to automate the change and the process that can’t be changed to reflect to the new rules we started with last year. Looking around my house, there are personal computers, handheld devices, DVRs and other gadgets that all needed to be told about the change many that still have not been updated. Here’s an exercise. Look around your home and office. See how many different things you own that have clocks in them, the number will surprise you.

It’s one of the pitfalls moving from lifestyle based technology to technology based lifestyles.
