Re: Internet of Idiots
IOT has it's place. My father was disabled and we got him a Ring doorbell as it was hard for him to get up and to the door quickly, it was also incredibly tiring and meant additional risk of him falling - he lived alone 40 miles from my brother or myself so we were constantly worried about him.
It meant he could check without letting them know he was doing so - who it was, and talk to them and say he's on his way if he wanted to let them in, otherwise he could ignore them in the knowledge the camera had stored their image with a short video should they harass him.
It's easy to say "christ nobody needs this nonsense device" but there are many use cases for devices like this, but I'd say that personally I have no need and no desire for one. But I'm not the target market arguably as I'm healthy and happy to tell randoms to **** off when try to sell me windows for the 3rd time that month.
