Here's a creepy new ad by Cisco, the connection people, about the Internet of Things -- or as they call it The Internet of Everything which of course they stand to make a lot of money off because they sell routers and such. Of course they want everything connected.
What's extra creepy about this ad isn't just the "it's coming sooner than you think" stuff, or the "everything" stuff but the "wake up America" or "it's morning in America" stuff.
In other words, we don't just get connected, the toaster and the coffee pot and our i-phones and such. We wake up, and get to a higher level of being and consciousness ... Wonder if they consulted Deepak Chopra on this one, or whether, like Google, they have their own inhouse Zen master...
So...that hack that turned Cisco phones into remote listening devices (see below); that's never, never, ever going to happen on the Internet of Things, right?
We will completely control that wake-up call, right?
