Smartphones. How could we live without them, right? The average person unlocks their smartphone 80 times a day. 80! The mixture of power and convenience is just so useful. It’s no wonder companies are applying this technology to all sorts of appliances nowadays that you wouldn’t normally associate with being “smart”. Smart fridges, smart watches, smart toys. I could go on and on. It’s all about moving to the “internet of things”, designed to make our lives seamlessly integrated with the latest internet technology. By the end of 2017, consumers will be using 5.2 billion connected things, according to Gartner. That number is set to more than double to 12.8 billion by 2020. Seems great, right?
