The Smart Home Market Doesn't Look Too Good for Apple

But don't count out the company just quite yet.

Tough competition out there. We've got Google going strong, and Amazon's always going to be firing on all cylinders, but Apple? Guess what: iPhone sales are tanking! Believe it. And now you've got the company scrambling over what to target in terms of revenue streams just to keep the company going. They've got their crosshairs nailed on a few possibilities, but here's one for an uphill climb: the smart home.

Who Dominates Smart Home Technology? That's Right: Amazon and Google.


In fact, the statistics show that Amazon's way ahead with their Echo sweeping the nation at a 70% market share, but what else do you expect from the e-commerce giant? Google's not too shabby with a decent 24%. What does Apple have? A measly 6%. And we're willing to bet you've never heard of this little thing called the HomePod (that's Apple's smart speaker contribution, not quite as 'catchy' as the 'iPod', but hey).

One would say that Apple has dropped the ball with the enterprising technology trend, but we're looking to see the company gearing up for a round 2 foray as Sam Jadallah formerly of smart lock company Otto now runs the smart home division. In other words, Apple's restructuring and employing a team to ramp up their works with smart home technology to the masses, and we're going to be witnessing a Hobbit-Lord-of-the-Rings 3-way battle pretty soon -- as if the battle between Google and Amazon wasn't intense enough.

Apple Might Have a Shot at This -- But Who Knows

The tech largely revolves around the iOS. If you already have a Mac or Macbook, you're pretty much built in with a Home app within that connects you with literally hundreds of third-party gadgets, such as lights, cameras and door locks. The bonus? Maybe you love your iPhones and iPods, and if that's the case, your costs to integrate smart home tech will be virtually nil.

But if not..... If you're all into Android and whatnot, well.... Apple's going to have to try and win you over! Let the battle begin.

Now a days how does technology addiction pollute our brain. We all know that carrots and broccoli are healthy but the question is can we eat them all day. Overuse of anything works rather than benefits, and many of us are happy to see more use of technology.

In these countries, Thailand, Philippines and Brazil spend more than nine hours online every day, with a third of them spending on social media.

Serotonin :

This neurochemical release occurs when we are doing some creative work, interacting with someone and engaging in a task.


This chemical is a 'painkiller' for the human body.Generally, it is a useful neurochemical, but those targeted by others on the Internet can use it to their advantage.


This neurochemical has immediate benefits but is also an addiction.The use of technology to release this chemical is increasing.


It regulates our reaction to activities like neurochemical fighting and blowing, but it's also a mix of likes, pictures and social media.


This neurochemical stressor, sleep deprived, is considered to be very busy and weak.

Kang says 'Affordable technology includes everything that releases brain-enhancing serotonin, endorphin or oxytocin.'

Examples of well-established and genuine relationship-promoting apps are examples, but if you add a good amount of dopamine to your habit, it will make you addicted to social media.

She says, 'For example, there is a creative app and your child uses it to make movies.But imagine if he starts using this app for six or seven hours.'It's not a candy crush like junk technology that only releases dopamine, but you still have to be careful and set a limit.

On the contrary, we use junk technology only to 'destroy ourselves'.She compares it to eating junk food emotionally because “we do it under stress.” We worry about harmful health things


• because we enjoy the benefits of it, like porn.

• Addictive video games and hate speech like content, cyberbullying, gambling, slot machines.

Technology Diet:

Technology Diet: Dr Kang says that any healthy technology should stay away from toxins in a diet. But staying in moderation can be a bit enjoyable.We are all encouraged to refrain from processed foods and sweet drinks, but there is no point in eating pizza and popcorn with children on Friday nights.

Likewise there's no harm in scrolling on Instagram or playing video games occasionally.

Dr. Kang says, however, that if you have diabetes or may develop palsy, your medical recommendation for sugar will be a little harder than the general public.

For example, "if you are someone whose family is addicted to something or is having anxiety, depression or having time constraints, you have to worry because you Habits are potentially"

She says that especially children are very insecure and there is so much research that can identify children who have been victims of a problem online in advance

Dr.Kang says :“Using technology, all other human needs should be taken into account."


We should sleep eight to nine hours each night, we should move our bodies two to three hours daily.You should go out of the house and bake the sun - although you are using the best technology but if you consider it an alternative to human history, then it is more than the limit.
