Smartphones Overstate Their Social Intelligence - NYTimes.com

Concluding paragraphs from a timely Farhad Manjoo "smart" device/service reality check

"As our phones merge with our cars, houses and other connected devices, we could well drown in data. There will be more apps, contacts, messages and other digital bits than any sane human has the time or cognitive capacity to make sense of.

As that occurs, the phone will have to morph into an intelligent filter; it will need to be able to figure out who needs you, and why, and decide when to demand your attention. In other words, the smartphone will have to finally start living up to its name."
