It was inevitable that we would reach a point when very small local networks would be ubiquitous enough for this level of communication to evolve. The power and potential evil use for these devices boggle the mind.
I have been wondering why the cable companies did not realize this potential due to their extensive networks to integrate additional services into their subscribers life. Home monitoring, auto environmental control, safety, and fire are just a few very useful things they could do for limited investment.
I can't wait to see the uses for these devices.
