Ever wonder how a person living in Russia answers their cell phone? Or why it’s not considered rude to answer your cell phone when you’re talking to somebody in China?
Cell phone usage is on the up and up, and people around the world are using them in different ways.
And while you may think there is a global cell phone etiquette everyone follows, there really isn’t. Each country has their own take on answering a cell phone and what is and isn’t appropriate etiquette.
Let’s take a look at how people from around the world use their cell phone.

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is where companies go to show off their latest and greatest, and with new innovations in IoT communications, big data, robotics, and other areas finally trickling down to products that are actually for sale, it appears the future, the one we’ve been hearing about for years now, in which robots actually do productive work and the Internet of Things really takes off – is nearly upon us.
How useful that future will be and how much of an impact these products will have on daily life is yet to be determined. The thing about CES is that it’s so big, some 4,000 companies presented tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of products, so it’s difficult to isolate the “top trends.” Everything from advanced robots to ostensibly old-fashioned desktop PCs were on display, and there are advances in each of the those areas that outdo anything that came before.

Wow, 2016 is officially over!
I’m sure there are many of us who like to look back to see the progress and innovation that happened in technology over the past year.
Technology advances at a rapid pace, and every month there’s always something new or a new idea is being proposed. There are new smartphones, tablets and televisions being released all the time, but last year, Tekoia noticed that there was a lot of excitement from people wanting to create a smart home.
It goes without saying, but here at Tekoia we just love smart technology and in 2016 we saw many common household items and devices being equipped with that very technology. This made the adoption of smart devices in the home more commonplace and acceptable.
And it’s no wonder. Smart homes are safer and are more comfortable. It’s nice to come home to a warm (or cool) house that’s been vacuumed while you’ve been away – and to have your pet already fed – isn’t it?
Last year, there was a slew of smart home products and devices that made it to the big box stores, and there were some that were still in the planning stages. Let’s take a look at a few of the most notable categories.
