For a bit of romance, it's sometimes useful to set something in-between...

The anger can be focussed far more widely than IoT. I don't want to go all hippy, but since consumer culture began, we've been buying crap we don't need. This is just one more insane example.

Also, security is not done well on PCs. So why would we expect it to be done well on IoT, which has huge platform constraints?

This whole thing was inevitable, like the next financial crash.
