Wearables
@vnewman, I agree. The industry is hyping sales to make it seem as though the devices are more popular than they are. I have five family members who use the devices and none of them have lost any weight. They fared much better using traditional methods such as diet and exercise.

I am curious how companies will notify consumers of their data usage. Will companies automatically opt-in customers for data sharing when a product is purchased and require opting-out or given customers the option to opt-in.

How will PII data be protected in the IoT world?

What are the security standards regarding IoT?

I didn't think about how IoT would affect entrepreneurs but small business owners can use IoT to move from a small business to a medium- or large-sized business. IoT can truly transform the way companies conduct business and provide insight that was previously unknown.

IoT's Impact
@Nick, great article. This is exciting news. IoT will impact every individual and company. However, it is up to companies to determine if they will embrace IoT to take their business to the next level or remain stagnant.

Re: IoT
I thought people would have jumped all over the fitness wearables disguised as jewelry.  I peronally don't care for it because I like my jewels to be just that - jewelry and not masquerading as something else.  I thought I would be in the minority here, but it hasn't really taken off as far as I can see.

Re: IoT
You may be right. I think the next big wearable might be something that's a new category. some kind of device that doesn't exist in any form yet. Maybe we'll have to wait for an implantable device?

Re: IoT
@mhhf1ve Maybe it won't even be called a smartwatch - I mean, the name itself evokes adding functionality on top of something old. When has that ever worked? Maybe with a smartphone, but those were actually called PDAs before.

Re: IoT
I think that might be right -- that there may be a new category of smart watch before it really takes off. Perhaps a new kind of display will be needed?

Re: IoT
@mhhf1ve You have a point there. It's funny - the smartphone really become its own category - no one even associated them with PDAs. 

If we were to make that comparison with smartwatches, does that mean it will require a totally new category for this to take off?

Re: IoT
I think smart watches are in the "palm pilot" days and they'll get better as battery tech and display tech gets better. The iPhone wasn't the first PDA device, but it made palmtop computing tolerable. Smart watches haven't yet hit the right combination of utility to make wrist-top computing tolerable. Maybe the concept of a full body network will come back, and we'll get a local area network for our watches, phones, earbuds and whatever else we can carry around.
