My Phone Knows Where I’m Going, And It’s Creepy
Take a look at the picture above - that's the alert that I got on my Pebble smart watch from my iPhone as I was leaving the office a little while ago to head to the Community Medical Center Seaside Park Boardwalk Studio.
Nice, right? The only problem is, I have no idea how my phone knew that's where I was going.
I don't have it on my calendar, it's not on my to-do list, and I wasn't messaging anyone about driving to Seaside Park. I can only assume that my phone has been paying attention to the places that I go on a regular basis.
I've been participating in Apple's beta program for the upcoming iOS 9, which they say will be "smarter". So I'm guessing that these alerts are part of the new operating system.
Sure, it's convenient. But let's be honest, it is a little creepy!
