    You thought smartphones were as good as they could get. And honestly, they
    probably have come pretty close to the top. However, there are still a
    million other things that can be turned smart and controlled with your
    smartphone. Your homes, cars, and much more may be controlled with your
    smartphones soon. Apple and Google have been working to build more
    smartphone technology into your life.

    Google's acquisition of Nest

    Nest is a company that builds smoke alarms and thermostats for your house.
    They are connected to your smartphone to allow you to have control of your
    home no matter where you are, and they are all controlled with smartphone
    technology. The thermostat even remembers when you are usually home and
    controls the thermostat accordingly to save energy. Google bought Nest
    recently, showing its obvious interest in creating more smart technology
    for you to live with every year. With the purchase of Nest, Google now has
    access to the engineers who helped develop the Nest technology.

    Apple's new watch

    Another thing we are seeing is Apple's interest in smart technology. One of
    these things is a possible iWatch, according to Reuters. The watch would do
    more than just tell time and answer calls. In fact, this watch would have
    the ability to check signals from your heart and determine your current
    health stats. It would check heart rate, check for possible blockages, and
    listen to your body working in case of potential problems. This kind of
    technology could bring huge advances to the medical world allowing us to
    live longer and avoid potentially life-threatening problems. Wouldn't it be
    nice to already be in the hospital getting treatment before you have your
    heart attack? It would be great if the doctors could stop a blood clot
    before it got serious. Preventative care like this would be amazing,
    especially if it included a watch that could continuously monitor your

    Smart cars

    Another big one that both Apple and Google have been looking into is a
    smart car. Google already has the self-driving car that has had thousands
    of successful miles driving around the country, but Apple is also looking
    into cars that can be controlled with your smartphone. Of course, if Apple
    creates anything that has smart technology incorporated into it, it will be
    labeled with an "i" before it. The iCar might be a real possibility in the
    next few years, allowing you to constantly stay connected.

    More connected opportunities

    As a business owner, having your customers more connected makes it easier
    for you to access them and constantly advertise to them. They will be
    bringing this technology into their homes of their own choice and will make
    it easier for you to advertise in their homes, cars, and on their phones.
    Get started now, so you are ready for the day when everything has turned
    into smart technology. If you move with the changing technology, you'll be
    much better off than the rest of the competition.
