    Where is my flying car?

    From one standpoint, progress has soared so far beyond what we envisioned as being possible in the past. From another standpoint, there are things like flying cars and personal jet packs that are still missing.
    Where do you see technology taking us next in the future?

    I have been waiting for decades for a personal computer I could talk to.  "Siri" is a step in the right direction, but we're still a long way away from a device that we can talk to as easily as we speak to another person. Imagine this call:

    "Siri - call my wife and tell her I'll be about 30 minutes late. Traffic. Make sure the house is about 72 degrees when I get home.  Call Chez Francois and make a reservation for 8.  No, make that 8:30.  And find out what the dinner specials are tonight.  The car feels rough.  Call my mechanic and schedule me for a tune up."

    A human personal assistant could probably handle that request.  I think Siri would choke...

    Technology will make us more lazy. We may have to get automated gyms in the future and workout 10 times more....
