Smart living

Dear Sir or Madam,

TV has long been smart and offers more than just TV channels. In addition, you can order an article online via your smartphone or exchange information with friends on a social media platform of your choice. A tablet is used to regulate the temperature in the bathroom, and when you're sitting in the bathtub, Alexa can play the right music by voice command.

Have a self-determined week,

Anne Hofmann
Editorial team
