So, for example, if the phone knows whether you’re inside, outside, at home, in the office, jogging, etc, as well as your availability and the app you’re using at the time, it can make recommendations about what you might want to do next

Of course, Intel might also be planning to take that a step further - its Human Brain Project (in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh) uses technologies like EEG and fMRI to decipher a person’s thoughts based on their neural activity pattern.

Combine that with context awareness, and psychic phones may well be a reality in the next decade or so. Or not.
