The Looming Internet Of Things

I tend to follow the school of thought that just because to you can do something, it does not always follow that you should. While it may just be general crustiness on my part having passed my half century, I also suspect most of us don't really need or want the fridge to talk to the TV, or the toaster to talk to the car, or whatever. The Internet Of Things is the lofty concept where most everything is "connected"; things around the home, your car, and so on. I mean, there are uses for it I suppose, but I can think of better ways to use the brainpower this is sucking up. Regardless, there is now an Internet Of Things Consortium, comprised of interested companies to promote this concept. Brave New World, indeed.
