Re: What an utter load of tripe
So, without 100%, 24/7 connectivity, a notification system has the value of tripe?
You missed one important adjective. REALTIME. So that should be: So, without 100%, 24/7 connectivity, a REALTIME notification system has the value of tripe?. Actually, not even that - tripe makes for a fine soup (works well on hangovers).
Example - I am severely allergic to half of the plants out there including "peanut level" intolerance to wheat, barley, rye and even rice. When I need to whack that epipen needle into my thigh and call an ambulance I on average have less than 5 minutes to do so. If that notification is not there within a minute or two, it arrives to an unconscious body which cannot whack the eipipen. If it arrives past the 5 minutes mark it would arrive to a phone attached onto a dead body.
Thankfully, I do not rely on notifications from the cloud for stuff like that. If I was, my SWMBO would have cached my life insurance already.
