Think of the "internet of things" as letting 100 strangers walk through your home or work every day to press buttons on all your appliances.

I found that I've actually bought more X-10 things in the past year than I had in all of the previous 12 of owning this house. I decided I wanted to get things that didn't talk to "the outside world" while still giving me some benefits, and I figure X-10 is bad enough that it'll be replaced by some IoT thing soon, so I'd better buy spares now.
