    I have two main concerns: security and privacy. Obviously the more connected devices we have, the more opportunities there are for malicious hacking of those devices. And I can't help but be concerned about the new ways that Internet companies will be in our homes and able to monitor our habits, even if just to sell us more stuff.

    Net neutrality (or lack of) is my biggest concern; followed closely by patient information security.

    Consider that social networking (a prelude) can and is used by potential employers to gather background, untold interview information. I dont use FB or Twitter, but with TIoT, would I have a choice in the data that's collected versus my choice in not to post (as I'm doing now)?

    Great question, rocrurocru. Can't see early adaptions of TIoT having much customization in terms of what data is collected. Ben, I share you concern with Internet companies invading our homes... they'll know so much about our habits.

    Many consumers aren't necessarily worried about that though... they just want the new tech for convenience.

    A recent article in Wired addressed many of these issues - and also brings up the fact that some of these connected "things" may just end up being too complex. Instead of just being able to use our toasters and shoes, we'll have to figure out how they work all over again.
