Good morning, All,
First off, our next Breakfast with an Investor will be Wednesday, December 17th and our guest investor will be the one and only David Teten. Register here, and more about David Teten below.
This past week we went to a dinner where the keynote speaker was Mark Anderson, Chair, Future In REview (FIRe) conference. He made ten predictions, and for the record, he tends to be right 94% of the time. One prediction was that the connected home was a non-starter: “home networks finally get off the launch pad and it turns out that all people want is low energy bills, TVs everywhere and a single remote. What they don’t want is talking refrigerators, things that don’t work, complexity replacing reliability, more nested menus instead of real buttons, dumb things talking to other dumb things and worst of all, hackable home networks.”
