Imagine waking up to a horizontally oriented iPhone acting as an alarm clock. You turn over to see two options, "snooze" and "turn off". You press "turn off"--- the iPhone presents you with a simple math problem that you complete. The alarm shuts off. You then check the iPhone for the weather forecast and RSS feed of the local newspaper. After the morning routine and a quick bite to eat you step outside. You pull out your iPhone and touch the Cadillac logo, entitled "CTS", on the home screen. There are several tabs at the top: "Controls" "Info" "Diagnostics". You touch "Info" and get a readout of fluid levels, tire pressure, and oil life. You then touch "Controls". You touch the prominent "Start" button. You then flick the radio and climate controls, before pressing unlock and approaching the vehicle. Once inside, the iPhone-esque touch screen console and 100%-display instrument panel greet you. The car automatically connects to your iPhone. On your way to work you receive a few text messages and phone calls. The Heads Up Display shows you the texts in a bubble, and the Caller ID shows the callers' pictures, phone numbers, and locales on your windshield. When you get to work, you use the iPhone to lock the car. Once inside, you stop at a vending machine. You pull out your iPhone and press "Vending". The iPhone immediately connects to the machine in front of you. You confirm it is the correct machine by verifying the number at the top of the display with the number on the vending machine. You press the "Coca-Cola" button and your beverage is dispensed. You are glad you did not have to touch the unsanitary buttons on the physical machine. The charge will be reflected on your phone bill. You go through the morning motions at work before heading out to lunch. On your lunch hour you make a few stops. At Exxon, you press the "Exxon" button, choose the fuel type, confirm the number on screen matches the pump number, and press Visa. The iPhone shows two Visa cards, each displaying the last four digits of their numbers. You touch the top one. You choose "no" at the next screen that asks you whether or not you want a reciept e-mailed to you. You begin fueling. You watch the iPhone's on-screen meter total your fuel in gallons and dollars live. When you are done, you replace the nozzle and press "finished" on your iPhone. You also run through Wendy's on your lunch hour. While in line you make your food and payment selections on your iPhone. When you get to the first window, you hand them your phone. They scan the on-screen barcode that popped up after you finished your selections. The barcode has your order and payment info in it. You drive to the next window and grab your order. You also stop at Kmart and the Post Office on your lunch hour. You use your iPhone to complete your purchase at Kmart, and again at the Post Office to select and buy stamps from the vending machine. You return to work and receive a call from Orkin. They explain that even though they just finished spraying, your house won't be safe to return to until tomorrow. You quickly make reservations at the local Holiday Inn for the night. After work you head to the Holiday Inn. When you get there they ask for ID. You press "Driv. Lic." on the iPhone home screen. Your state-sanctioned ID is displayed on screen. The receptionist takes your iPhone and plugs it into a cradle behind the desk. Your information is automatically entered in the system. She returns your iPhone. The iPhone then displays a message--- Purchase: Choose Card. You choose Discover. You only have one Discover card so the iPhone simply asks for confirmation of the total. You choose "Yes" and enter your PIN. The receptionist then sends general hotel information, a hotel map, and virtual key card to your phone. After you are finished at the front desk you use the map to navigate the way to your room. When you arrive at the room you press the Hoilday Inn icon with "Room 255" text on your iPhone home screen. You are presented with several options. Some options have to do with room service, climate control, "do not disturb" and check in/out. You choose "unlock room". The Bluetooth signal immediately unlocks the room. You enter the room, set down your bag, and begin to settle in for the night. You use the channel guide on iPhone to find a show you enjoy. During the commerical breaks you adjust the volume and channel surf using your iPhone as the remote control. After a little while you set your iPhone alarm and make a few phone calls before heading to bed. The day, like every other day, was hectic. However... you had an iPhone to help make and manage purchases, find your way around, warm up the car, and stay clean and healthy, as you did not have to touch public surfaces all day long. It helped you make the most of your time--- like looking at menus and placing an order before you even made it to the drive through window. When you made it to the drive though window you saved time by simply having you iPhone's onscreen barcode scanned. With the iPhone everything just made sense and you couldn't help but wonder why nobody had thought of it sooner.
