Yes, business also has survival of the fittest. That is what happens, over time, only the best technology and business will survive.

These things sort our themsleves in a battle field...eventually someone wins and its technology is widely adopted...this is probably better than having some central authority (goverment?) telling the world what needs to be used

>> "What I want is a way to make these different pretty things talk to each other using the same protocol"

Intel, Cisco and indeed everyone is thinking the same way. It is a problem the industry is not doing this together. Every firm has its own idea.

>> Qualcomms involvement and do they see them as a competitive thread in the wearable market.

I think they have clearly stated that in their investment press release. They expect Ineda to be the operating system for the IoT. This a new thinking to find a way to differentiate from ARM which does not offer any real competitive edge where it has become very common

>> True. But then, I don't think anyone is crystal clear about what exactly we want to do with those "interoperable" data...

I think we will have companies emerge that will figure that out soon. In that case, all users' data will be under their control and they can sell them to companies that need them. Yes, for that to happen, it will mean many things will not be free on the web.

@Junko, I'm curious how the data from interoperable pieces will work too. I think he expects an industry to build up around these devices separately.

Qualcomm are one of the major headline investors in Ineda, who are specialising in a line of MIPS based socs designed from the ground up for wearables.

would have been interesting to get a comment on the nature of Qualcomms involvement and do they see them as a competitive thread in the wearable market.

Nice candid comments by Qualcomm executive. Good interview, Jessica.

I found it particularly interesting when the guy said:

What I want is a way to make these different pretty things talk to each other using the same protocol... thinking about open standards.

True. But then, I don't think anyone is crystal clear about what exactly we want to do with those "interoperable" data...
