Re: The never ending war.
Team,

Some "Food 4 thought" I hope all consider--I just took it so that $ 5 will be donated:
******************************************************************************
GBC Survey

Good afternoon,

An explosion of connectivity is happening in the halls of government. From wearable technology that tracks biometrics in real time to smart chairs that automatically heat up the moment you enter the office, this is the Internet of Things (IoT) — and it's growing at phenomenal speed.
But is it secure? And how secure does it need to be? Government Business Council, the research arm of Government Executive, is conducting a short research survey on IoT security, and your input is essential to the discussion. For each response we receive, GBC will donate $5 to Homes for Our Troops, which works to "build mortgage free, specially adapted homes nationwide for severely injured veterans."

To make an impact, please follow this link to take the 5-min survey: http://www.atlanticmedia.vovici.net/se.ashx?s=251137457DAA1FFA.

As with all of GBC's research, your identity and responses will remain completely anonymous. The research data will only be used in aggregate, and findings will be published and available for download on govexec.com

Thank you for your time and attention.

Re: The never ending war.
I will answer the question with a question" by saying why are you not scared?   It seems as if we seem to discount the importance of humans in this revolution--Do we have to ability to continue to stay in control?

Re: The never ending war.
What exactly are you scared of with the upcoming rise of IoT and machine learning in everything? Do you think we're losing our own autonomy as we offload some thinking to machines? Or should we be gaining more freedom as we allow machines to take over menial tasks?

Re: The never ending war.
I don't mind noting as we deliberate this "revolution", that it is frankly scary.    How do we "redefine our purpose" as many of the things we take for granted becomes ever so "muddled" in the age of Uber?

Re: The never ending war.
Google and Apple aren't even "late to the game" for smart home appliances. Apple is generally a late-coming innovator. Apple was not the first to introduce a PDA, but when it did, it really made a big impact.

And I'm not so sure that Amazon will be a winner with Alexa because Amazon will ultimately need to rely on Android (and its fork Fire OS) for development, and Amazon will be limited by the fact that it can't put the full Goolge Play App store on its devices (and that developers aren't picking Fire OS as the platform to launch on).

Google and Apple have an ecosystem advantage that Amazon doesn't quite have. Maybe Amazon can get there in a decentralized way, but it's a harder/longer road, I think.

Re: The never ending war.
I am with you @Jeremy in not dismissing Apple & Google--your thoughts reminded me of Microsoft and how all somehow noted how Microsoft's Days were "numbered"--yet they seem to have evolved in a major way with Dynamic 365 & other key offerings.    What the NY Times' Farhad Mahjoo referred to as the "Frightful Five" will be with us for a while--and it will be an epic battle--and I for one look forward to writing about it :) :)

Re: The never ending war.
Amazon clearly has the upperhand, but surely it's too early to dismiss the likes of Google and Apple? They might be late to the party, but they've got the capability and software/hardware already present in people's homes to make a big impact this year.

Re: The never ending war.
As I reflected upon the deliberations here, I could not help but wonder whether the battle is already over--especially as the general consensus has been that Amazon has been the clear winner at #CES2017 especially with Alexa & Echo.

Who is there left?

The never ending war.
There will never be a clear winner. It is like comparing Apple and Android.
