Re: Interesting Numbers
@Joe Stanganelli if there isn't an unconnect car yet, I'm sure there is going to be a market for them. People will pay to not be connected, and they might even give up a premium for it.

Re: Interesting Numbers
@dcawrey: They're already huge.  It's just a matter of the nascent "connected" features at this point.

Is anybody still manufacturing "unconnected" cars?  (And, if so, where do I sign up?)

Connected cars are going to be huge in the coming years. 

Already, people pay for extra services in the car. And with autonomous driving coming to a car near you, there's going to be a huge need for IoT services from operators. It's no wonder they are intently catering to the car industry.

@Ariella:

> that raises the question if predictive analytics can accurately predict the trajectory for IoT technology.

Given that Amazon Echo already records and keeps the recordings of all commands so as to continue to improve service to the customer, I'm sure this is something that is actively being worked on.  :)

Re: Interesting Numbers
@Ariella: Apt analogy.  Insofar as that goes, I think the real transition will come as IoT devices focus more on the things people do anyway and less on new things that people can do.

For instance: People already listened to music portably (e.g., via walkmans and portable CD players, and then via mp3 players).  Only natural to extend that to the phone.

So I don't see the IoT wave coming with the rise of FitBits and the like so much as I see it coming with the wave of devices and functionalities that are related to things we already do.  Echo is a great example.

@faryl: Indeed, when I had a loved one living in a particular care facility, I could have really used an IoT monitor on her condition and how often she was being checked on and cared for -- so I could have known more about the care she was receiving in real time.

Re: Interesting Numbers
IoT devices in and of themselves, without regard for type, may be becoming slightly commoditized, but they're still pretty much marvelous luxuries as far as I can tell.  (It was interesting to note the Christmas Day dining room talk as one person shared with the family that she had gotten an Amazon Echo, and no one else (other than me) knew what that was.)

Besides, it's not how many there are or what they do, but what the companies who deploy them do with them.  That's where IoT goes from commodity to value-added USP.

Re: Interesting Numbers
@Ariella You're right about that. Connectivity everywhere is something we'll be working on for a while, I think. Connecting rual communities with telephone service was a lengthy project. I wonder what such a project would look like for Internet connectivity (and IoT in the end).

I don't think IoT will be common place and viewed as a necessity like smartphones because IoT is viewed as a complex topic only for major corporations or those in the IT field.

Until IoT is marketed as a necessity to consumers to solve their everyday problems or solve their everyday problems better than existing products on the market it will still be viewed as a luxury.
