    A contraction of "The internet of things' where your car battery connects to the internet and gives you messages saying how much life is left, or your stove telling you you left me hot and running, you assshole🙂

    Everything connected to the net in ten years, your cigarette lighter saying, hey idiot, it's time to refill my fluid.....

    Not sure the date of this publication. It does say predictions for the next 5 years so it is a 2015 article but January or December, not sure.

    sonhouse, reading all the way down to the bottom of this fascinating article confirms your estimate of the year "2015":

    It says in the link issue 4, spring, so we cvan date it quite precisely...

    I don't think that small appliance will get their own internet connection. It would just be too much fuss in terms of administartion. Who would bother to announce the battery to their individual environment? People at one point will be fed up with the sheer amount of information they coulkd get. And to be honest today's potential is far from being used...

    It's unfortunate that some posts to threads in this forum totally ignore the topic format designated by the thread creator's original post.

    ...and this post had what relevance regarding the original Topic of "thingification"?

    In fact I still think that it won't really become so ubiquitious, since a lot of human Input has still to be done and some may be advert and some just too lazy...
