In the race for increasing connectivity some have questioned the wisdom of the Internet of Things being pushed by companies like Google and Apple. There’s a dark side. More on this later. But check out what Microsoft has posted.

They’re calling it “Microsoft: Productivity Future Vision.” It has one and a half million views, but I wonder why they won’t let you leave comments!

Here’s the video from Microsoft posted on YouTube

Aldous Huxley “Brave New World Revisited”: “What has happened in our Western capitalist democracies….the development of a vast mass communications industry, concerned in the main neither with the true nor the false, but with the unreal, the more or less totally irrelevant. In a word, they failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions.”
