Physicist Brian Cox believes that 'everything is connected,' and I am inclined to believe him. Now, while he is talking about particle physics, I am talking about computers but the idea is the same. When I wake up in the morning, I look at my smartphone to see the local weather forecast for the day and to check my email. I then turn on my television and watch the news while I make my breakfast. While driving to the gym, I stop at a red light (that was likely controlled by a remote terminal) and look up at the red light camera that sits on the corner (also networked). Once I get to the gym, I scan my card, whose serial number is checked against their network database of members. While working out I stream music on Pandora (gotta love unlimited data!) While headed home, I decide that I want to grab some lunch. I stop in to pick up a sandwich and realize I don't have any cash so I decide to use my NFC enabled phone to pay. The NFC chip communicates with their networked terminal which then processes the charge through their remote management facility. I head out and decide to grab some cash on my way home. I walk up to the ATM, and after imputing my information; await the response (and cash) from my bank. While at home, I shower sit down to eat while streaming some Hulu Plus to my networked television. Once my show is over, I jump onto my computer to do some homework but just end up watching 2 hours worth of Youtube and Engadget. Whether it be the internet or a LAN, it seems that almost everything we use today is networked in some way. The rapid availability of data and communication makes connectivity a must in today's fast paced society. To be honest though, I kinda missed the days when you could just fall off the radar.
