Nest killed its smart home hub: What do they owe customers? | ZDNet

Nest killed its smart home hub: What do they owe customers? | ZDNet | cloud | Scoop.it
Revolv promised "lifetime subscriptions" for buyers of its home automation hub. Then Google's Nest Labs bought the company and killed the product. What rights do customers have?
Pál Kerékfy's insight:

Kiben bíízunk meg, amikor az "okos" otthon eszközeit keressük? A nagyszerű, innovatív új cégekben, vagy a régi, bevált márkákban (pl.: Honeywell, General Electric)?

Infographic: The Global Wearables Market in 2015

Infographic: The Global Wearables Market in 2015 | cloud | Scoop.it

Despite consumers’ ongoing skepticism about the value added by smartwatches, the global wearables market grew by 172 percent in 2015. Fitbit, Apple and Co. shipped a total of 78.1 million devices in the past year, up from 28.8 million in 2014.

Pál Kerékfy's insight:

Ezek az "okos" eszközök (órák, fitnesz cuccok, stb.) gyűjtik rólunk az adatokat, eltárolják a gyártó szerverein, elemzik, tanácsokat adnak. Szépen növekszik a forgalmuk...

Google Nest's battery-drain: Chilly users turn up heat over thermostat software glitch | ZDNet

Google Nest's battery-drain: Chilly users turn up heat over thermostat software glitch | ZDNet | cloud | Scoop.it
A software update may be the source of Google-owned Nest's smart thermostats becoming unresponsive or incapable of operating efficiently. 

"Nest has since acknowledged the problem, pointing to software version 5.1.3 that may cause devices to become unresponsive or incapable of operating efficiently, in turn causing the device to shut down.

The company has advised users to recharge and restart the device to get it working again as well as provided a nine-step guide to reactivate the device."

Pál Kerékfy's insight:

Múltkor arról írtam, hogy az elmaradó vagy késedelmes szoftverfrissítések milyen bajokat okozhatnak az "okos" eszközök használóinak.
Most itt egy példa, hogy a hibás frissítés mit okoz. Nem nagy a baj, csak a fűtés nem működik.
Lesznek még ilyen gondok, de ez nem meglepő, mert az új technológia sose volt elsőre tuti.

IBM's Rometty heralds dawn of 'cognitive era', inks new Watson deals

IBM's Rometty heralds dawn of 'cognitive era', inks new Watson deals | cloud | Scoop.it

"Each new application funnels in more data, which Watson makes sense of, constantly learning and offering solutions -- becoming more digitally intelligent."


IBM is expanding the deployment of its computing system Watson with partners like Softbank, Under Armour and Medtronic.

Pál Kerékfy's insight:

Azt hiszem, igaza van. A Watson tényleg sokat adhat hozzá a sok összekapcsolt és "okos" cucchoz. Reménykedjünk, hogy jót és értelmeset...
