FOUNDER & DIRECTOR - REAL PLUS
How would you describe your relationship with tech? Love/hate. I love tech for all that it affords me, but there is some tech that I have found to be overbearing at times. When smartphones came on the scene I hated the way it crept into every corner of my life. I hated that I found myself drawn to this little machine that at times takes priority over my loved ones and the person standing right in front of me. I've worked at disconnecting from my tech hub, had digital detoxes, bought an old-school alarm clock, and keep my phone on silent. I think we are all working at working with technology not having tech control us.
PC or Mac? PC. I have no reason other than just having stuck with what I know. I do have a load of Mac products, and Macs in the office, but PC is my default.
iPhone or Android? I was a Blackberry addict, I loved that damn phone! It was probably about seven years ago when I converted to the iPhone and its constant improvements have kept me there, plus have you taken a photo in Portrait mode?
Three apps you can't live without? Well as you can see I have not added any apps to my front screen, and this is by design. I keep my basics here, Calendar, Phone, Web Browser, Maps and SMS, anything more than this sends a message to my brain of how much I actually have on. Does anybody really need to see how many unread; emails, DM's, IM's etc that they have every time they take a call? This front screen helps keep me calm.
What piece of future tech are you most looking forward to? According to the World Health Organisation cancer rates continue to rise globally, I'm looking forward to the technology that either cures the disease or prevents its occurrence in the first place.
