So a new term has just hit me – the ‘internet of things’ – not very catchy or obvious.
The BBC article from 29/07/14 describes it as:
‘… the idea that objects all around us – be it smartphones, fridges, toasters or thermostats – are connected to the internet. It paves the way for connected homes, where appliances can be controlled by apps, and devices can react smartly to their surroundings, such as the heating coming on when it knows you’re almost home.’
I prefer the term ‘Gadget Life’ – tells you what it is and what it’s impacting but I’m sure there will be other great suggestions.
