Computers, phones, and now, in some case standard appliances can all connect to the internet and the list of items that do so is ever growing. Soon feeds from news outlets, entertainment sites and stock info will reach the internet users in new and interesting ways, including, as some believe on our persons through “wearable tech”.

Today information is relayed and provided from sources such as refrigerators, cars, smart watches, and even electronic thermostats. Many “Things” are becoming the basis of a interconnected tech web that is increasing in size daily.
