    Ill do deeper analysis of the wording and see if i can find something more to pick on. Ill feed it into my supercomputer and see what my customs made software (criticiser 2000) can come up with.:p See what this endless hot weather is doing to me! :mad:

    See if i had a fridge that ordered for me, then i wouldn't have an excuse to go the the nicely air conditioned shops :cool: I tell my missus I'm just going to get some bread and return 3 hours later with ice cream.

    Anyway you look at it IOTA is a game changer when it comes to the current way of doing things in the IOT sphere and maybe even that of Blockchain.
    There really is no argument about the first point which can stand on its own.
    Whether the promises can live up to realization is quite another thing though.

    I think, if there would be an IOTA type Blockchain Tech that was Human friendly as well it could really make a change.

    That's so Santa can upgrade his technology to know when you are sleeping and know when you're awake.

    Here is a recent video of the Chief Technology Officer of Telstra, he talks about IoT.
    I go out of my way to lock down my network and limit outbound access to devices that i feel don't needs internet access, so i can say all this IoT is not my cup of tea.

    I see why someone else would want it on my products (that's a no brainer) but not why I would want or willingly use/enable said pillow (which is what I asked initially)

    For the record I wouldnt use Siri or get that google or amazon talky thing in my house either.

    Never say never. That said, I don’t have the “need for it either”, I did get a Google home for Christmas, however it has not seen much use.

    Some of my colleagues on the other hand, control their houses with it. To get there they had to spend decent amount of time (and coin).

    “Alexa turn on home theatre” - has macros to turn on TV, amp, and dim lights. For example. One guy also has Alexa connected to his irrigation system. It checks the weather to see if, and how much to water.

    In any case...back to IOTA.

    Indeed. I recently discovered Google Timeline. It's both scary stalkerish and actually useful for trying to remember, "When did I go to ...?"

    @Bullion Baron and any other IOTA fans might want to watch from 2:50 - 7:00 just to get an update on all the negativity IOTA is attracting

    All in your mind
    All the Data collection and Google Stalking stuff aside, How about the fact that pool filters on a decent sized pool draw a heap of power, In a very short time Iota or some clone of it , but probably Iota, will allow both the power network and your pool filter to talk to each other in a machiney sort of way and let you clean your pool at the lowest cost of electricity daily. The very same thing will happen for those installing Lithium battery banks, Charge at the lowest possible price (even cyclically) and use that stored power at the highest cost point in the daily cycle. Air conditioning, talking to your watch, (maybe even clothes with Walton) or sensors in a room will be able to track you and automatically adjust the room temperature to a pre set value as you move around your house and manage the climate in each room you are not in all at the same time. For you, your wife or a pre set value for both of you in the same room, or just to Her pre set even (Cause she's Cold or Hot or whatever.... You know).
    Electricity, heating, cooling, lighting are all things that hit the back pocket hard currently and are just one of the daily things we as humans interact with constantly that Iota offer's new solutions to.
    Think about washing your clothes even, an Iota enabled washing machine could read the Walton tag's going in and not even need you to select a program or measure out washing liquid, water levels, etc etc. Just chuck all that shit in there push the start button, let the machines sort it out and walk away.

    All I see today is people creating solutions to things that are not problems. I have yet to see one real useful solution that IoT can provide. Its like when I was looking at a Nespresso machine the other day and the new machine can be connected to your smart phone, wtf, why would anyone want to do that? Devices communicating with the power company? Again that doesn't solve a problem, I can set a device now to run in off peak power. Sick of people trying to justify a need for IoT BS. I feel like I'm living in a crazy land.

    What happened to real innovation? Something that either made our life much easier or allowed us to do something we could not do before.

    I concur Leo- this seems real gimmicky and not filling any real need.

    Its right up there with those fridges that order your food when you run out in my mind - and how many of us have one of these?

    I dont need internet to work with pool filter - a timer does the same thing for ensuring it works at off peak time.

    I dont need the air con adjusted if I move 10 steps, besides the fact in SX's example I would be forced to buy a new watch when I dont even wear my current one.

    A lot of this seems to be technology for technologies sake.

    I appreciate the further detail SX provided but it doesnt convince me its tech I need.
