Not if you don’t want to miss an important email from someone of a vintage that doesn’t text.

Apple Board Member Bruce Campbell Talks Discusses Technological Integration: Apple board member Bruce Campbell, who was a good friend of the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs, and is also the Chairman of the Board of the Intuit software company and he spoke to Intuit employees on Friday about personal technology trends. He specifically spoke about how technology is beginning to seamlessly integrate itself into our daily lives in what we might describe as more personal ways – for example, chips in our clothing, high tech thermostats in our homes that can be controlled remotely via apps and the forthcoming high tech wrist watches that will connect to the Internet and no doubt in the near future allow us to essentially wear a small telephone on our writs a la Dick Tracy.

Bloomberg Businessweek offers a relatively short but interesting article that focuses on the Bruce Campbell talk – here’s the link:
