Outside of your job, what tech products are you personally obsessed with?
For someone who loves technology, I don't have much of it in my house. My wife is a proud Luddite, and doesn’t like tech for tech’s sake; we don’t have Alexa or HomePod or any of the talking gewgaws, no camera at the door. She yanked out all the wires for the security system that came with the house after it kept going off when the power went out.
I’m still semi-Luddite in some ways myself. I was recently visiting my daughter and son-in-law, and my granddaughter asked me to turn on “Aquanauts” for her. I couldn’t even figure out how to turn on the TV. (It required the game controller to choose among the channels and subscription services.) It was a good excuse to read books instead.
Having said that, I love my Apple Watch, which has worked its way into my consciousness in ways I hadn’t expected: It tracks my exercise and lets me see my notifications without having to pull the phone out of my pocket and spend way too much time on my phone.
