Re: Not a New Issue
@dcawrey that is a great point, but I feel like it opens up a whole new can of worms when it comes to cost versus need.  At some point people will go without if the cost becomes too high and it will become a balancing act for companies to deliver a quality product at a reasonable price while still making a profit.

Re: Not a New Issue
The business model is to make devices as cheap as possible. It's not about follow-up on these. Low cost, and low support is the name of the game. 

Should that change? I think it should. But this will mean more expensive devices and long-term costs for deployment. Maybe a subscription-based model is a good medium for customers and vendors. It's something to think about.

Not a New Issue
It would be nice if there was a precident set by other industries, but the smartphone industry has been dealing with this for as long as they have been around too.  Smartphones have started rolling out anti-virus software, but that would be next to impossible for IoT.  There definitely needs to be something done at the front end instead of a constant rush to patch issues in the back end.
