The Never-Ending Death of Smart Home Gadgets

I got my smart TV in early November 2016. It was a 50-inch Samsung—the largest size I could convince my then skeptical roommate to shell out for. We scored a modest deal. At roughly $600 split between two poor millennials, it wasn’t half-bad. (Though, in retrospect, I should have waited until Black Friday.) It was,…Read more...

Podcast: The case for ... cities that aren't dystopian surveillance states

For my latest podcast, I read my Guardian Cities column, "The case for ... cities that aren't dystopian surveillance states," which was the last piece ever commissioned for the section. The Guardian commissioned the piece after reading my Toronto Life blurb about how a "smart city" could be focused on enabling its residents, rather than tracking and manipulating them. In the article, I revisit my 2015 Locus column on the idea of an Internet of Things that treats people "as sensors, not thi...

I have to pay @generalelectric $55 for a water filter from them." Sound familiar? (Image: GE, Cryteria, CC-BY, modified)

Inventive students detach IoT car-immobilizers, use their SIMs to power free wifi hotspots

The "Barnacle" is a networked car-immobilizer that parking guards stick over the windshield of your illegally parked car; you pay the fine online and the Barnacle gets an over-the-air signal to release itself from your car so you can remove it and put it in a nearby deposit bin. Except that it turns out to be really easy to remove a Barnacle without paying -- some redditors say they can remove it just by running their car's windshield defroster until the suction cups give up.

Increasingly, new products — and updates of existing ones — are smart and/or connected. One company is changing the fundamental calculus behind this shift by lowering the barrier considerably when it comes to what it costs to make something ‘smart,’ both in terms of the upfront bill of materials, along with subsequent support and development costs.

A Bain Capital Ventures partner says construction will be a hot corner of real-estate tech this year — but short-term rental startups may be overhyped

Construction tech is one of three real-estate tech trends that Bain Capital Ventures is watching in 2020, according to partner Merritt Hummer.  She also included the increasing institutionalization of short term rentals and the Internet of Things (IoT) as some of the top real-estate tech trends.  Hummer doesn't think that proptech as a whole is overvalued, but real estate companies that "masquerade" as tech companies may see lower valuations in 2020.
