Much of the technology we use in our daily lives is meant for life on the go—whether we’re commuting to work, connecting with friends while out and about, or taking a trip.
But for many, 2020 consisted of doing little and going hardly anywhere as we adapted to the pandemic.
A lot of the technology we usually rely on became (sadly) useless, and probably won’t be necessary for months to come.
Of his Fitbit, CNN tech reporter Rishi Iyengar said he enjoyed “the thrill of reaching 10,000 steps — marked by a sudden buzz on my wrist…and Fitbit’s sleep quality tracking was one of my favorite tech features. That changed this year [with lockdowns] where I wasn’t walking anywhere and I knew my sleep quality was terrible. Those were the catalysts for bidding this gadget adieu.”
CNN media reporter Kerry Flynn said she used to carry her Anker portable charger everywhere, but “with working from home, it’s gathering dust in the backpack I also never use anymore.”
