Smartphones will react to our moods in future: Justin Rattner


San Francisco: Personal devices like smartphones and televisions are going to sense our moods in near future and will be offering advice to the user, said Intel Corp's Chief technology officer Justin Rattner.

Talking about context-aware computing at the annual Intel Develop Forum in San Francisco, Rattner demonstrate how ultra- smartphones can react to our moods and how personal devices will one day offer advice that goes way beyond local restaurants and new songs to download."Future devices will constantly learn about who you are, how you live, work and play", said Rattner. He also demonstrated a television remote control that figures out who is holding it based on how it is held, and then learns the viewer's entertainment preferences.

According to market research company IDC, the smartphone industry, including technology giants like LG and Samsung, is likely to sell 270 million phones this year and grow 25 percent in 2011. There will be features that support context-aware computing starting to appear in Intel products in the not-too-distant future, Rattner said.

The questions about privacy and people's willingness to be intimate with their computers will have to be resolved before the future generation of smartphones he described takes off, said Rattner.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device.
