Re: lame > Who's got a better name for the IoT?
Ooh, the acronyms are going to keep coming out of the woodwork. The papers "The Things in the Internet of Things" and "Things in the Internet of Things: Towards a Definition" are some of the recent attempts to get to the core of the keyword 'Things' in the IoT phrase, and that is just ONE part of the phrase.

Re: lame > Who's got a better name for the IoT?
I always thought "Internet of Things" was just an abbreviated 'Internet of Everything." But you are right, 1eustace, another buzz word willl no doubt enter our vocabulary and be just as annoying. The good news is that some of the most overused cliches have practically disappeared. Remember the Information Highway? #cringe

Re: lame > Who's got a better name for the IoT?
Don't worry, it's potential replacement "Internet of Everything" or IoE is already taking roots and soon you will read about IoT as much as you read about M2M today.  Point is it is a concept (connectivity and its evolution) with appellation to feed the latest buzz.  I'll bet it's replacement will be no less annoying.

How come connected medical devices are 'fast emerging'?
They've been around for years and years. Besides, were is 'the building code' ??? I thought there will be at least a passing reference to the actual standard or best practices. Very disappointing.

Re: lame > Who's got a better name for the IoT?
Agree that the term is gattinga tad overused, but it is a pretty good description of the next (or current) big thing in technology. Anyone have a better idea?
