The IoT is sneaking up

My family would tell you I’m a total tech klutz. But even I appreciate signals that the Internet of Things (IoT) is edging into everyday life.

It was painless to whiz through Customs and Immigration on a recent entry into the US. That was facial recognition technology at work.

This morning, I liked the digital coupons the grocery store automatically loaded onto my loyalty account.

Now, I’m waiting for the day when a finger press or face view substitutes for those pesky passwords I always forget. Even a tech klutz will appreciate that.
