Predicting the future is virtually impossible, especially in the world of computing technology. Advances in technology are happening at an exponential rate. Everyday new technologies are developed while old technologies are improved. Uses of newly developed technologies are bringing new visions to society’s daily life. People are affected by technology, no matter what type of jobs or lifestyles they have. For example, advances in the automobile industry have revolutionized the commute to and from work or school. Computers also have changed the way society is educated, works, and lives. In the last ten to fifteen years, the use of technology in the home has been a growing trend. The future of technology use in the home is a shift toward the smart home.
