Re: Get on board, Qualcomm
She's not a bath person. (Although she is very clean.)

Also, mechanical stuff is Dad's purview, so never mind the garage door on the IoT.

Re: Get on board, Qualcomm
What? No bathtub/hot-tub controls or garage door opener?

Re: Get on board, Qualcomm
If I could draw up a list of my mom's favorite things on the IoT, they would be:

* Bread-maker

* Coffee pot

* Tempurpedic mattress

* CD player that plays non-frantic classical music

* Kindle PaperWhite (oh wait...)

Re: Get on board, Qualcomm
Once again, Amy, you've taken to heart the writer's maxim, "Know your audience," and opened up the IoT to a whole new generation! I vote for IP-enabling your parents' beer keg as soon as a subnet address can be assigned! ;->

Re: Get on board, Qualcomm
You're right, Terry. It's just a semantics thing. Just because lots of people don't know what IoT is now, it's actually a pretty accessibe way in to the concept. I always tell people - okay, my MOM - that it just means exit ramps and beer kegs and refrigerators and traffic lights will have sensors in them that let them talk to the Web, and that that ability will let each of these things do their work better.

Get on board, Qualcomm
This is very reminiscent of the way Intel really got behind wireless LANs and wireless networking in general, driving the standards and helping create the seamless connectivity we enjoy from, well, just about everywhere. Qualcomm should stop being so coy and not just get on board the IoT train, but actually drive it.

Re: IoT
@Citysolver: Good point there. Perhaps the IoT will allow us all to disappear in the noise of a million million little tiny buzzing devices filling the Internet with background noise.

IoT
From what I have read it looks like data protection is going to become virtually impossible very soon. By 2020 there will apparently be over 20 billion devices onnected to the IoT. Thats alot of data to track and er, sell. I think this is surely where the next billionaiires will be made. How we citizens are going to keep track of this exponential explosion in how our lives are monetised makes me dizzy. Will it all happen under the radar or will we see a backlash, who knows??

Whatsup Watson ?
Qualcomm is quite the powerhouse in mobile these days along with ARM. They pretty much have the mobile sector sown up and so will have the best shot at the IoT sector with similar technology. However I am unclear where Watson fits in and, as I have said previously here, unclear what Watson will actually do? It seems to be an answer to a question no one has asked.
