I disagree on this point, A fully connected 'life' would make things so much easier. What are beer stocks like... After this case, and the other case, there's only one case left. yeah, Oh Barney's right lets get some more beer. hey, what about some beer... I can just check BeerCam and have a look... or beers can be logged in and out via RFID as they are drunk/replaced. I've recently bought a house of my very own (hence the few rants on why the fuck its so expensive to run cable), and continually see places where 'internet connected shit' would be incredibly useful... I've got a 24 port POE switch on the way and am currently looking around at arduino's and what not for sensors and Home automation bollocks. I think there is value to people for IOT. We'll need Team America World Police for it. Dahua ship millions of cameras with hard coded root creds that Can't be changed and/or trivial buffer overflows.... These get weaponized and pointed at various places. Dahua are in China, they've got no incentive to fix the problems, they aren't on the hook for any losses caused.
