>>o does that mean every big tech giant can have their own Internet of Things group.?

That is how the system begins. Then over time, they will merge and have a working group.

As much as you can imagine the invention of ICs by Jack Kliby and then Microsoft by Bill Gates. This is not new - the only new thing is that we have a really good name after it. Since the mass usage of the Internet, we have seen IPs inside most things. Yet, I agree that the scale has really exploded recently.

Good point - this IoT has been there. We have had sensors with IPs for a while. It is just that a new crafted name has enterred th lexicon and we just like it. I am not sure if Intel is really that good in these small evolving business sectors. They seem to always wish the world stays at PC. How can they make money when I can buy a decent tablet at $100? Not sure they are built for that kind of price model.

IMHO It seems to be 80% marketing. Everyone is jumping on the IoT bandwagon. The arduino-intel combination is a great stunt. It will draw attention. IoT is the new buzzword. But for how many years are we connecting things?

"More importantly, what's the first product?"

Our water meter? That's been remotely sensed for a very long time already (although I won't swear that it uses Internet Protocol). The actual water meter is wired to a small outside box. Not sure whether our electric power meter is set up the same way, or whether it still has to be read manually.

Our car is full of "IoT" type of sensing. We get a report card by e-mail every week or every month (my wife gets those).

Never mind what I do at work. IoT is "more of the same."

Good point...but at the end of teh day you will need trillions of these devices for IoT...so silicon manufacturer might win due to the scale of the problem...$2 times trillion is a sufficiently large number ;-)

If Intel could not suceed at $20 mobile app processor. it is hard to believe Intel will suceed in $2 IoT processor.

Maybe what we need is a set of communication protocols to facilitate data transfer between IoT standards groups. If we could use it to identify and resolve overlap between standards it could pay for itself in no time at all!

Rick, how big is this group at Intel? And how does that compare with other "BIG" chip companies' IoT group?
