How Context-Aware Computing Will Make Gadgets Smarter

Small always-on handheld devices equipped with low-power sensors could 
signal a new class of "context-aware" gadgets that are more like personal 
companions.

Such devices would anticipate your moods, be aware of your feelings and 
make suggestions based on them, says Intel.

"Context-aware computing is poised to change how we interact with our 
devices," Justin Rattner, CTO of Intel told attendees at the company’s 
developer conference. "Future devices will learn about you, your day, 
where you are, where you are going, to know what you want," he added.
