This reminds me of what the same sort of experts were saying a dozen years ago. The magical Internet would enable people to retrieve from the office a shopping list generated by their refrigerator, which kept a running inventory of its contents. And, they said, you'd be able to start your washing machine remotely, from any web browser. Yeah, those caught on. The common pad of paper still works best for shopping lists, and there was no point in starting your washing machine remotely, as long as you still had to load the machines and fold the clothes afterwards by hand.
Technology does some marvelous things, but the last thing I want are machines nagging me like my mother.
