Interop attendees give key comments
Harper reed has really interesting point of view of how the internet of things can make a difference to a person's life. The point of these things is not just to connect but to add value to person at their home.  I hope windows in listening to feedback of the interviewers because they really had some important things to say about windows 10.

I believe they're listening. Windows Technical Preview incorporates pretty much, if not all, what people in video mention.

But the way, does it look to me or the Reed's video is cut out at the end?

Interesting that Harper Reed, who calls himself a huge Apple fan, is intrigued by the Surface's hybrid features. Anybody else finding an iPad with a Zagg keyboard case makes a pretty good hybrid?

IoT can be fun!
Harper Reed's right about the potential fun of the Internet of things. This may seem like a naive point of view given how easy it is for hackers to infiltrate networks. But hackers aren't likely to target your Fitbit Flex data, or your refrigerator or thermostat data. These are once-dumb objects that now generate useful data and put it at your fingertips via your smartphone screen. And that's just the beginning. I think consumers will soon learn to enjoy and exploit these opportunities.

But one connected home "thing" I won't buy is a smart door lock. Too much of a security risk. I draw the line there. I'll stick with keys.
