"The next dishwasher that I buy will certainly be connected to the Internet of Things ... because I won't have any choice."

Like vinyl records - there will come a time when some people will want their white goods to be "old school". As the IoT will only be a controller function then - like a car's ECU - a business will exist to tweak its function.

That will then be made illegal for reasons of safety - and because the government wants electricity suppliers to be able to control your white goods devices.

Globalisation will mean that every mechanical part will come from the same source - and only the final branding and cosmetics will be different.
