But tech people are often like this. Often programmers get bored with PCs so find other things to play with. I used to be an early adopter, not so much now, only when it is something I really really want.
IoT will pass me by as I have no use for it. Smart TVs, well mine is just a bit thick rather than dumb, but network cable not plugged in.
I early adopt when it benefits ME.
Digital TV, more channels and anamorphic, so bought one.
DVD, no contest, if I wanted to watch films I needed one.
Blu Ray, wanted HDTV so a good place to start, also wanted newer gaming device.
Not so bothered
Smart phones, not bothered, waited until work bought them.
MP3 players. bypassed that totally.
Tried and gave up on pay TV twice, one was very cheap but went bump, it also worked on my TV via a CAM, the other I never used except for BBC downloading, but got a free (but now dead) PVR from my ISP.
Streaming, not impressed, worse than broadcast normally, but I will join Amazon prime for ONE show, (as well as delivery options)
IoT will join this as well.
Finally the amount of companies trying to stop me using the internet is getting ridiculous. Here are a few.
Mozilla - Australis.
Google - Chrome no menus, searching privacy warning needing logging in or cookie retention.
Paypal - dumbing down to telephone screens.
Ebay - also started the downgrade.
MS - ribbon menu, the mobilifaction of windows.
And that is just for starters
