Internet of Things

Isn't this exactly the sort of thing that tech companes and, yes, tech journalists have been tediously hyping of late? And so every damn thing you buy will have this sort of tech in it, be hackable (because the idiots making it won't care a damn thing for security if there's quick easy money to be made) and send every damn thing it sees or hears back to some large data slurping company or other, as well as governments who want to slurp it all too.

Personally I'm happy to be called a luddite, for not being prepared to toleratew all this for the sake of having the latest new shiny stuff.
