Ha, that's all we need your fridge to become a freezer and your freezer to become a fridge.

Personally I can't see the point of much of the IoT, smart components and dumb users.

Hi DavidR,

But these devices will appear now everywhere. I have  alsoseen them already  in exam rooms hanging on the ceiling, so-called to check human presence and student noise.

All these meters and gags are hung unto the Internet and centrally administered, also some people that had a job in the past looking after thermostats and window blinders etc. now facing to be made redundant and eventually turned out onto/into the streets.

It is a sad thing actually when you come to think of it, especially when the jobless have more in their purses as those with moderate wages, at least in some towns where I live (in the Netherlands where you're better off on the dole so to say) so there also is no initiative to do the iOT's job as a human being. Cleverbot is coming in outsmarting us all, and the managers behind these cyborgs bring them in.

Cookies Are the Original Ransomware

Thus, the first ransomware message came from advertisers and website operators:
"we are not showing you this content unless you allow us to use cookies on your computer."
