CES 2013: Internet of Everything

CES this year seemed to be a fascinating one… mainly because the internet of things really broke through this year.

No longer just an expression used when people are talking about items they don’t understand, oh no were talking serious business at long last.

However there was also the ugly… Summed up by Qualcomm’s keynote, covered by the verge and many others

A night of cringeworthy conversations, product demos, and music

But back to the good… This was certainly the year ioT went big and forbes have a nice summary,

Other than Ulta HDTVs, running $20,000 and up, there was no particularly brand new technology announcement that screamed “I am the future” but the sum of the parts screamed “Wow… this Internet thing has opened the door for a generation of products that no one could have imagined.”
