Don't let the door hit your arse...
Intel likes the idea of IoT, but has thus far completely failed to understand it. The Edison fiasco is the proof.
"Hey, let's create an IoT system. It'll have a processor - what've we got? Oh an Atom will do - and sensors, and an internet connection. What more do you want?"
Well, let's have a think. A development system that doesn't cost a large multiple of the price of a MicroBit or a PiZero might be a good start. A board that doesn't have a grossly overspecced processor, most of whose cycles will be idle. A processor that doesn't chew battery like it's going out of fashion. Seriously - the baseline Edison board probably out-specs what's in your PVR! A gig of RAM? Four of flash? This is basically a system-on-chip version of a PC, not an IoT controller.
Basically, Intel "gets" IoT, like a gorilla "gets" needlepoint.
