Technology Isn’t Always The Answer

Friday, November 16th, 2012

I’m a soccer fan and I’m technology fan, but I’m not sure they really need to meet in quite this way: it seems a European start-up has created an app for on-field refs.

No way in the world pulling the phone out and clicking the “show yellow card” button is going to be faster than pulling an actual yellow card out of your pocket, even if you don’t have to turn the phone on, put in your password, launch the app …

Goal line technology makes sense as does an app like this for off-field officials to log data into from on the field, but sometimes technology ain’t the answer.
