Whether it“s monitoring the supply chain, tracking and managing inventory, delivering personalized promotions, or enabling ecommerce from new environments, the retail IoT is ushering in an era in which “smart” things can seamlessly collect, share and analyze real-time data.
An international survey on public interest in smart homes has found that over half (54 per cent) of survey respondents say they’d be willing to share personal data from their smart home appliances with companies in exchange for cash or coupons.

Capitalism excels at innovation but is failing at maintenance, and for most lives it is maintenance that matters more
Innovation is a dominant ideology of our era, embraced in America by Silicon Valley, Wall Street, and the Washington DC political elite.
