  1. On implants: maybe not in our bodies, but I think it is clear that we are implanting technology ever more deeply into our lives.

    On general vs. specific: for mobiles, general wins I think, because there is only so much we can carry around. At home, specific wins, because specific will always be better for its intended use.
