5 benefits the internet of things will bring...soon.

Today, we tend to rely heavily on our smart devices and on the Internet to perform our daily tasks.  Automation and computing devices have become the foundation to our everyday productivity.  However these devices are not synchronized.

Missing with Internet Access.

This month, of cyber awareness, was created not only to encourage us to create a safe, secure, and resilient cyber environment, but also to show how far the cyber world has come. It is so ironic, with our daily lives so engrossed in it that we have a month to remind us of it, do we really need it? People are going MIA, missing with Internet Access, in the sense that people rarely talk in person anymore.

Between tweeting, posting, blogging, texting, emailing, chatting, IM’ing, or Skype-ing no one has time to hold an actual conversation in person. Over 500 million people log onto Facebook everyday, and that is just one social network. Social media has truly changed all our lives forever, and mostly for the better. Now relationships million miles apart or several years forgotten can rekindle and renew friendships. Topics occurring in daily lives can be discussed and shared not just between the official press.
