Re: IOT 2017
Plus you need a second device to capture/scan the QR code!

Re: IOT 2017 Security
Joe,

Happy New Year, may the market bear ever more and may you charge it all to the clients, and in honor of the holiday I shall not point out the well-known comparison between bantam roosters and lawyers.

IoT Gets Real
Hopefully for 2017 (in less than an hour here in New York), the first things that come to mind about IoT are not just "smart cars" and "smart parking", but more, as the article says, how it interacts with customers. Healthcare is a good example of this, where patients are connected with their doctors. That being said, I have to go downstairs and rinse out the champagne glasses, so this is my last post for 2016. Happy New Year everyone!!!

Re: Vodafone IoT 2017
So true. And now is the right time in IoT to really jump in as a leader vs. an adopter.

Re: IOT 2017
@Joe QR codes were supposed to be a great time saver and help mobile users get to sites faster -- we got better phones and didn't need them. I have seen them used in very odd ways. I have worked in a building that was completed in 2013. It contains about 30 QR codes. These codes were etched on glass and metal to mark various areas.

Re: IOT 2017
@faryl: Yes!  I've seen this with QR codes and it baffles me!

I mean, I could see some *very* particularized use cases where QR codes on a website might have very limited use (e.g., a demo at a tradeshow).  OTOH, you're far better off just having the URL and the hyperlink.  Otherwise, you're just using technology to use technology.

And not even cool, cutting edge technology!  I feel like the relevance of QR codes came and went pretty darn quickly, IMHO.

Re: IOT 2017
@clr: Alas, virtualization is more or less a no-go with IoT for the most part at this point because the devices are typically far too small to even be able to begin to bother virtualizating.

Of course, IoT devices can be incorporated into a virtualized network for added security and efficacy.  It's just that bringing virtualization to the devices itself is still something that is on the drawing board because of the physics of it all.

Re: IOT 2017 Security
@John: Right you are, although typically you see that more in product industries and specifically-regulated industries!

Otherwise, remind me to start charging my clients more.  ;)

Re: IOT 2017
@dcawrey: As many have pointed out, if you don't collect the data in the first place, you can never have that data compromised.  So too if you expunge the data the instant you don't need it anymore.

The problem is that Amazon Echo keeps EVERYTHING it records so as to provide better service to the customer/understand what the customer is saying/etc..  And that data can then become potentially discoverable or subpoena-able.

Re: IOT 2017
@John: It's also worth noting that increased regulation/legislation in this area may have an opposite-streaminling effect.

The FTC, for instance, in advising greater and broader powers be granted to it by the legislature to regulate cyberspace, has observed that many of the things they want to see happen with consumer IoT devices (e.g., informed consent and consumer privacy opt-ins) simply can't because many such devices have tiny tiny screens -- or, in some cases, no screens at all.
