Continuity
Perhaps "continuous delivery" should be called "continuous employment."

Re: Continuity
Since networks have always been a work-in-process and in the internet of things the device will always have some level of software that by definition needs to be connected to the internet, I feel that Continuous Development will become hardwired in the minds of developers, or at least in the mind of software engineers.

Continuous development or bombardment?
Continuous development, yes, but to what end. How many applications do I need for my refrigerator, my clothes washer and my home water heater? I expect this front, like so many others in modern life, to be dominated by advertisers. So one home app will alert me to when the supply of Miller Lite is running short, even though I don't drink Miller Lite, and another will tell me when I need more water softerner (don't use that either.) It'll be a brave new world, I'm sure.

Re: Continuous development or bombardment?
A brave new world but a small one. I think most consumers care very little about the data that comes from the Internet of Things; the ostensible value proposition of the IoT hasn't yet become meaningful to the general public.
