This new buzz phrase has been floating around the internet for a while and is now beginning to make its way into mainstream media. Naturally when words like this enter the general lexicon, I get a lot of questions about them!
This one is near and dear to my heart, so I'm going to roll up my sleeves and try to explain away this catch-all term!
What is the Internet of Things?
Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like: things that have internet!
What sorts of things you might be wondering? Well just about anything from an internet-connected refrigerator, to a smart TV, a plugged-in laundry room, and even your WiFi wired actual house!
I’ve done episodes on products that would be considered within the scope of the “Internet of Things,” such as the Nest thermostat, Apple TV, Chromecast, and even security cameras! All of these things fit into the category of internet-enabled things.
