Total Connectivity?

One of the most fascinating and anticipated conventions of the year is the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.  Interestingly enough, the Associated Press commented that “absolutely every device in our lives is becoming a computer connected to the Internet.”

Manufacturers are looking to embed computer chips with Internet connections into more and more unusual devices – take Sony, for example, who is introducing an Internet-connected alarm clock to wake you up with your favorite music videos and traffic forecasts!  A Taiwanese company, Asustek, developed a touch-screen computer that hangs on the wall.  And according to Jonney Shih, the chairman of Asustek, “everything in your house, even your bedroom mirror, will be a computer display.”  Hum … I wonder if it will be possible to use SEO tactics on a mirror?

The CEO of Netflix predicts “that the Web, a browser like Firefox, Chrome or IE, will be right on the television in the next couple of years.” 

Personally, I’m turning in my driver’s license when Intel starts selling their Smart Cars to the general public – I’m not sure I want to be on the highway when people are that connected!
