The buzz around the Internet of things couldn't get much louder. But there's evidence that the buzz is a trailing indicator -- and buyers are losing interest in the notion. Even the wearable segment has become a topic of disinterest, now that the Apple Watch has shipped and people know what it is and isn't.
Worse, it's not that they're tired of the hype. They're disappointed in the actual products, which for most people fall into the home automation category. Many products work poorly or have confusing technologies that keep people away. Industry battles of who will own the user or the home worsen both problems: Proprietary products create integration hassles that make both usage and purchasing much too difficult. http://goo.gl/JWIeuP
