Ever greater security risks?
This is an encouraging trend. Yet I do wonder what new hacking opportunities the IoT will open up. This is an especially important question for healthcare, where biotechnology will increasingly allow monitoring and management of remote devices that will keep more people alive and healthier longer -- it will also allow hackers potentially to wreak havoc with life-supporting technology, should they chose to act so dastardly.

Note to the author that "affect" is a verb and "effect" is a noun, the latter of which should have been used in the second line of paragraph four instead of the verb.

Re: The Internet of Pushed Data to Things
The IOT will be evolving from just data driven architecture to a much bigger thing very soon. Just see at how many opportunities IOT has opened to just mobile technology itself, and there are so many other fields to see as well.

The Internet of Pushed Data to Things
Looks like the digital signage trend isn't going anywhere, which is great news for connected device manufacturers.  It's a great area of technology when you think of the sheer footprint of connected signage, from retail to food to just about any other industry.

It makes sense that the focus of the industry is still on "pushing" out data to connected devices, not only can it deliver a bit more from a security perspective since the type of data being used can be controlled a bit more from a security perspective, but it also gets around a lot of the issues with pulling information from sensors and the privacy and security risks that come with it.

I expect we'll see the same continued growth for a few more years at least in the digital signage market.
