How much use are we getting out of the IoT devices?
That projected number is absolutely mind-boggling. But I wonder how many IoT devices are going to just be the type of thing you get because everything is becoming IoT. My TV is smart TV but I never use any of the smart features on it. How much buying will occur where we get something with the IoT without really using those features? When I get a new fridge will there even be nonIoT versions in 10 years?

Re: Who is next?
re: battery technology holding us back -- good point. I can't imagine these numbers getting any higher (well, I can, but that's another story)

a friend just went to work for what I call a "new battery company" and what he corrects me  with "alternative power" or something like that.

we don't call the new things "batteries" any more. I should be more aware, but I'm just floating away on the numbers...

>> Including consumer devices, the Gartner report predicts  IoT devices ill encompass more than 6.4 billion connected objects in use by 2016, a 30% rise from this year.

Actually, We always overestimate the short term things and underestimate the long term things.

Re: Who is next?
I feel that these numbers would have been many times larger but, battery technology is holding it back. There is a lot of demand in the enterprise and consumer space for gaining efficiency and Moore's Law is providing the market with the price-performance computational gains that enable efficiency. However, battery technology seems to be only doubling in terms of energy density once every 10 years.

Who is next?
I really feel overwhelmed by this continue dance of numbers. I think we need to wait to 2020 and start counting.
