Sometimes I wonder if modern technology is really all it’s cracked up to be.
I know that we have made a lot of advances in modern medicine, computers, and even artificial intelligence.
However, I really wonder if all of these measures are for the good of humanity. Actually, I also have to wonder how intelligent our supposed smart inventions turn out to be. If you ask me, there are a lot of things that robot brains cannot master. For instance, I am still completely baffled with the way that my central heating and cooling system refuses to operate on a reasonable schedule no matter how many times I try to convince my thermostat that it should perform in alignment with my temperature control settings. You see, about six months ago I had a smart thermostat installed in my house. I thought that I was going to reduce my energy bills and cut down on my HVAC wear and tear with this new smart temperature control device. I had heard such amazing things about smart thermostats from my friends and family that I actually wanted to install the smart gadget as quickly as possible. Little did I know, this intelligent device was not going to be so easy to use. For whatever reason, my thermostat cannot seem to accept my indoor air temperature control plan. No matter how many times I reset my air quality settings to match my schedule and my air temperature preferences, the thermostat refuses to accept the information. I constantly wake up in the middle of the night burning hot. I’m regularly freezing cold during the day with uneven temperatures throughout the house. And every time I tried to correct my thermostat with my desired HVAC settings, the device completely forgets what I’ve programmed. This is not a smart bot.
