cortana“Cortana, remind me on Saturday to ride the monorail.” I apparently use reminders on my phone so often that phrases like that come out of my three year old’s mouth. Whether you have iOS, Android, Windows Phone, or even Windows 10, you should get to know the reminder capabilities. On my phone┬áI just hold down the search button, wait for Cortana to start listening and then tell her what I want to be reminded of. That reminder can be triggered at a specific time, a place (via GPS), or when I’m calling or texting someone. It took a little while to get used to using it, but now I’d have a hard time living without it. Our brains are terrible at remembering todo lists. Offload it to the computer in your pocket!
