IoT Gears Up for Smart Cities, Cars
This is a very good article but the smart car can be a good thing or a bad thing. yeah its going to be good on gas/ eletric and save alot of money. But the bad parts can be very small, not very good impact protection, the smaller the car the worse thats just my opinon. They can be good for cities as it says in the article but i just think they are not good.

Re: smart cars in the future
Consumers should be concerned about security and privacy. How will companies that produce technology for smart cities and smart cars ensure customer and business data are protected?  Extensive testing must be performed as well as a customer outreach program to show consumers the benefits of smart cities and smart cars and how both will make their lives better.

An assessment also need to be performed of worst case scenarios and how to handle them. We don't want to see a worst case scenario like the movie, I, Robot. :)

smart cars in the future
I know there will be increased cars in the future that will be energy effiecient but I'm not sure about the cities maybe it can make some things easier with virtual information technology etc.

Nest thermostats..
Even the internet-connected Nest thermostats are giving people some reason to be cautious about adopting IoT devices. Nest devices appear to be divulging location information -- and software bugs have left people with unheated homes during one of the worst blizzards.

Clearly, the IoT security problem needs to be addressed before it gains more traction.

Re: Security
Security is still a largely unaddressed issue for IoT. One of the big problems is how will these IoT devices get updated software -- if there is no way to upgrade them, then there will be unpatched and insecure devices everywhere, potentially causing all kinds of havoc.

I've heard there might be some kind of P2P or distributed solution, and I think IBM tried working on a blockchain platform to secure software updates for a distributed network, but until these things get figured out... I don't think too many people should want their refrigerators talking to their cars and toasters.

Re: Security
One of the other projects we backed was this--I had hoped to do the acxtual Kickstarter update--but it "messed up" the graphics--so I just decided to share this clip hope you all enjoy--it is in the end about the possiblities--isn't it?

Re: IoT Gears Up
It was in this very spirit that through my company, the Daily Outsider, we backed a number of kickstarter based projects--one of them being a $ 9 Computer that I can't wait to get my hands on--and also trying to test out and assess a Keepod Device (that I have not been able to get to work yet on an Old IBM ThinkPad I have secured).   However, the majority of our fellow brothers and sisters in the World are not as "geek-centric" as we are...are they?

Re: Security
Very Valid explanation. No matter how much ever security evolves,  an average consumer  would always have that concern at the back of the mind. Just for that reason consumer makes his/her own choices on where to opt that smart options. Obviously to less prone areas of his / her life. Being a technology person I would have some level of trust but I am no exception to narrowing down when it comes to that point.

Re: IoT Gears Up
@mpouraryan:

I wouldn't deny your mention about being watchful about premature nature when something new is out into market. But to get excited about any new era of invention is pretty obvious. Nothing stops that and i don't see a reason to be not. When it comes to experiment that, it's all up to one's own judgement. I believe it's pretty much personal choice - some would like to try the very first product that gets out while others can wait to see a bit matured version prior to getting their hands wet.

Re: IoT Gears Up
We can't forestall progress--we have to patient.  That's what I see as the implicit message here as you and the rest of the team have outlined.   I also underscored it implicitly by not getting excited about the evolution.
