Tech Refinements

Features that your favorite device should have had for awhile now

I thought of some handy technology advancements in our everyday devices that would help us be more efficient – and that is what we should all strive to be — more efficient, every day.

Volume Keys as Multi-function

On the iPhone, the volume control keys should also be used to skip songs by ‘long holding’ it. ¬†Other platforms such as the new BlackBerry 10 OS and the Samsung Galaxy S 4 has this basic feature, but the popular iPhone doesn’t.

Browser is the App

The Browser should be the app; we all notice how on our PC’s there is no FaceBook app or an app for your favorite news or TV channel – the Browser is the app. Mobile devices are entering to an enhanced sophisticated era where there computing power is very strong and almost on par with desktop computers – and with the power of HTML5, there is no longer a viable reason to make an app for web content that can’t be displayed properly in an HTML5 web browser.

Back Panel Touch Sensors

Touch sensors on the back of devices; hear me out, for things flipping a page, skipping a song, or scrolling, the back of devices could be put to use to control some basic limited features of your phone

Placement of Punctuation Symbols on Touchscreens

I realized where all this poor grammar in communications is coming from; its 1 part of ‘being dumb’, and 1 part trying to be ‘cool’, and like 1.5 parts of ‘being lazy’ – in part because the punctuation keys are not a natural flow of the typing communication experience. Meaning that on the touchscreen keyboard that pops up, it is 1 or 2 extra keys that have to be pressed in order for one to insert a question mark. That is why we end up with words that look like statements, but are actually a question.

I’m sure there are more examples of tech refinements out there, but I can’t think of anymore at the moment, but if you have some, feel free to share your own.
