Anyone remember a post about contextually aware software

I think it was about a year ago, possibly more, there was an editorial type post on The Verge that talked about the future of software and mobile apps, and I can't find the link anywhere.

If I remember correctly it's title was something along the lines of 'why software should be more like the Startrek spaceship' (I forget it's name) and this was because the author suggested that apps should draw in information from it's surroundings, like where you are, where you're going etc.

I would really like to find this post, can anyone remember it?
