Streetlights are online, geiger counters are. Fridges are online for the better part of the last ten years and cars are just now coming online. There’s hardly any consumer electronics left that aren’t in some way communicating on the internet. And with chips getting ever cheaper and ever smaller, even lightbulbs now communicate with the smart phone. There’s houses that tweet and pill cases that send SMS. All in all, there’s more “Things” on the mobile phone networks now than people. Everything’s connected it seems.
How about a little help then in setting it all into context?
