Internet of Shit
Language like that, the unwillingness to acknowledge that there is more to IoT beyond pointless connected toasters and fridges, the baying anti-IoT mob and down-voting of anyone who may dare suggest otherwise, is having a chilling effect on rational discussion of IoT.
Much of what is being railed against isn't even IoT but simply remote control and browser-based access.
Out in the real world there are many devices which have only a Bluetooth connection, and one needs to use Bluetooth to interact with them. Users want a simple means to do that and a browser-based mechanism which is platform and architecture independent suits them and manufacturers.
Google Chrome already supports a Bluetooth API and it is proving popular, Mozilla are having to play catch-up to stop users moving to Chrome to use that. There are issues which need to be debated and resolved but 'it's a steaming pile of shit' and 'burn it down' is not the right approach.
Don't like it, can't see the point; fair enough, but there are plenty of people who not only like it but want it. They aren't going to listen to those who simply appear to be luddites or a pitchfork and torch carrying mob.
