Everyday folks don't see what all the fuss is about the Internet of Things. In fact, more than four out of five have never even heard of it
@Shane I am really glad to hear someone mention this. We have been taking more and more about IoT in tech circles, but does the consumer think about it as we do ? Of course not, and it turns out they don't think about it at all. At least 4 out of 5 apparently don't.
Which should serve as a lesson to the industry - major shifts like these take time and considerable education. Nothing new here acutally but it looks like the latter is losing ground.
People in general do not think of their devices as anymore than interesting gadgets that make life a little easier. The scope of IoT is probably never going to be something the consumer really cares about.
