Why it feels like the Internet of Things is going backwards
The Internet of Things isn't dead, it's just taking a nap. Well, sort of. A year ago, it felt like new IoT products were being announced practically every day. Some were Kickstarter projects with broad ambitions, while others were big brand presentations that had consolidated their plans into single channels to release products later in the year. The connected home, where everything talked to everything else, seemed well on its way to being a reality that excited more than just the super geeks and early adopters. You are not alone in feeling like the Internet of Things movement has stalled, but the delay in progress was due to a much-needed rethink and reboot. Everything that comes next is going to make a lot more sense, but it's still going to be a little while before all of the pieces fall into place. Looking at the connected home products on the shelf right now reveals a mess. Samsung and LG took way too long to figure out that they needed to play nice with the other big nam...

The Internet of Broken Things
szczys writes: The Internet of Things is all the hype these days. On one side we have companies clamoring to sell you Internet-Connected-everything to replace all of the stuff you already have that is now considered "dumb." On the other side are security researchers screaming that we're installing remote access with little thought about securing it properly. The truth is a little of both is happening, and that this isn't a new thing. It's been around for years in industry, the new part is that it's much wider spread and much closer to your life. Al Williams walks through some real examples of the unintended consequences of IoT, including his experiences building and deploying devices, and some recent IoT gaffs like the NEST firmware upgrade that had some users waking up to an icy-cold home.

Samsung’s SmartThings hub hopes to be that central pin that connects them all. Continue reading...
