Re: Why does this stuff need to update ?
'What "dubious purposes" are you using your stuff for?
Also, would it be too much to ask for this IoT crap to be IPv6 compliant from day one? I want to be able to get on the Internet, for any purpose, without finding I've been NATed back to the stone age because all the IPv4 addresses are in use by lawnmowers!'
Televisions, well, some, are known to send out every spoken word within range of their microphones.
Don't worry about the lawnmowers. My straight razors already took up those IP's. The remainder was taken by my bathroom paper dispensers, toothbrush and socks.
