Is the Internet of Things the next big productivity leap in modern times? Or is it, as it was commonly referred to at DEFCON 25, the Internet of Sh*t?

This article brings to mind my uneasiness now with surveillance i got last yr which is fully operational via the Net. At 1 st i was thrilled since i can see what my kitty tribe are up to+see that they're being properly looked after when i'm away but now i'm a bit rattled. I'll be using it 24/7 as i'm going away 4 a few days this wk. Got it specifically 4 the kitties. thx Freya

It's crazy now. Feel like no matter where you are, you're being watched. Even your computes and cars. Thanks Freya

The only way to ensure you have some form of freedom from the pervasiveness of technology is to unplug. . .

IOT isn't coming to my home, it's not making my life easier nor anyone else's'.
Always walking behind the next update. Like GMO's,
I like to live and not spend my time updating things presumed to make my life easier.
