The current generation of smartphones is a bit of a kludge. They require a lot of text entry, but most don't have keyboards. As a result, they generally suck at it. Siri, Apple's new voice-command technology, points the way to a future that is more like the past, where phones are good at what phones have always been good at -- voice -- and typing may become, at least on smartphones, a thing of the past. While voice command has been around since the early days of PCs, it has never really taken off.

This is yet another example of how doing something first isn't as important as doing it early AND well. There are more lessons to learn from Siri. Check them out here:

How will the pandemic influence your holiday shopping habits this year?
I will shop online exclusively, for my own safety and to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.
I will do some shopping online, and some in-person because I want to support merchants in my area.
I will shop online definitely, and I will consider local retailers -- but only if they provide curbside service.
I will only shop in-person because the risks associated with e-commerce outweigh my chance of catching COVID-19.
I will not do any holiday shopping this year due to circumstances related to the pandemic.
