Maybe tech devices aren't actually conspiring to control our lives … but they clearly are developing capabilities that will more and more shape our experience. 

Amy Webb, who has her finger on the pulse of what’s coming, says it won’t be long before we’ll all have to choose if we’re an Apple home, a Google home, or an Amazon home. She also talks with us about the impending death of the smartphone, and paints a picture of what’s next.

Webb founded the ‘Future Today Institute,’ which researches and analyzes emerging technologies. 

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Melissa Gerr is a producer for On the Record. She started in public media at Twin Cities Public Television in St. Paul, Minn., where she is from, and then worked as a field producer for Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland. She made the jump to audio-lover in Baltimore as a digital media editor at Mid-Atlantic Media and Laureate Education, Inc. and as a field producer for "Out of the Blocks." Her beat is typically the off-beat with an emphasis on science, culture and things that make you say, 'Wait, what?'
