The Near Future Of Mobility


Blogs are dynamic- just like people. So,  this year we will be adding more stories on smartphones and digital culture.  While we will maintain this site, there’s more to be found!

Smartphones are an increasingly vital purveyor of mobility; sometimes we travel in a vehicle and other times we choose to move around digitally. Although travel and the Internet are neither substitutes nor tradeoffs, they are always complements.

In 2020 we will  enhance the blog with excerpts from our advise column, Dear Smartphone© . It began as a means to spotlight the dangers of distracted driving, and highlight the three types of inattention caused by smartphones (cognitive inattention, visual inattention, manual inattention).  But, there’s more….

Smartphones are entirely new… we are all on a learning curve when it comes to using them with balance and skill. The good news is that we can improve our lives when we improve how and when we use our phones…The key to understanding this is mobility- a topic we will continue to explore further in GrayHomes, Smartphones.

GrayHomesGreenCars will also get a verbal face-lift. We will (try) to go back over the collective posts since 2014. If there are editorial updates we’ll make them, and if there are changes to the technology, we’ll note that too. Our housing stock is still old, hence the Gray Homes, but mobility and technology are clearly on the move.
