Creeped out? I agree Chuck. Yet Big Mother will find a welcome place in our lives if she saves time and makes daily tasks easier. I've been surprised by the acceptance of GPS in the form of a woman's voice. I find it annoying, but I've watched the acceptance -- a daily task made easier.

I suppose this was inevitable, given the power of MEMS. But I have a feeling that a lot of this contextual awareness will be wrong in many cases. I also suspect that some people will be creeped out by these capabilities, even when they're right.

Psychoanalysis shows Freudian tendencies

As frustration builds while being forced to learn the new UI of yet another new Phone, Tablet or other electronic device, I see myself lying on the proverbial Brown Leather Couch, being analyzed be Dr. Freud.  As it turns out, I hated Big Mother. 

Rising irritations would naturally subside if She just quite trying to guess what I'm thinking, and nurture my own ability to help myself using the base technology.  I mean; stop trying to constantly improve things by complicating them.
