Re: IoT Meeting : What am I doing here ?
"By that logic if I want a pizza I would just wait for technology to make a robot that can read our thoughts and deliver pizza to me. But no. I agree with you. The thing about technology is it gets updated really fast in this time and age, and you have to upgrade along with it, which costs a lot of money."

Yalananda, of course cost is a faster.  The fact is if we wait for some time, can have the same technology for a better price; but may be outdated at that point of time.

Re: IoT Meeting : What am I doing here ?
Terry, 

I completely agree with you. I don't understand the use of talking to my appliances with my smart phone. I guess it might be useful if I forgot to turn off the coffee pot, but I will not ever pay extra for it.

Re: IoT Meeting : What am I doing here ?
I share your concerns Terry. I also fear we are in the minority and are going to get steamrolled by IoT devices whether we choose to or not. Just another on the long list of things that make me feel old on a daily basis...

Re: Probably for the best
You just officially made me interested in seeing the new Terminator movie. The thought of social media + skynet eventually bringing the end to all mankind is genius.

@TerryB: They didn't call it Facebook because on Facebook you kill time, and Skynet kills you.

Re: IoT Meeting : What am I doing here ?
I think with upgrading technology the Future Proofing is decreasing day by day, and this is not because of poor infrastructure. This is purely a game of economics and technical powerhouse politics. Who said the Apple 4S couldn't run the latest IOS (before 9)?

Re: Understanding connectivity
@Impactnow: I agree. People should be taught about IOT and why it is important today, because 5 years from now they would be seriously missing out some benefits just because they chose to be uneducated about IOT when the whole world was changing.
