The quiet threat inside 'internet of things' devices

5 monthes ago   |   By Phys.org

As Americans increasingly buy and install smart devices in their homes, all those cheap interconnected devices create new security problems for individuals and society as a whole. The problem is compounded by businesses radically expanding the number of sensors and remote monitors it uses to manage overhead lights in corporate offices and detailed manufacturing processes in factories.

CES 2019 was no different, and there's a lot that's got me excited for the year ahead and beyond. But 8K, the biggest TV trend at CES yet again, still feels like a fantasy that's not making much progress towards becoming a living room reality. The very best of what was on the CES show floor had nothing to do with resolution.
That's not to say 8K TVs aren't a real thing. They very much are: you can buy one from Samsung today for around...
