Nest working in a mesh ?? not yet #fail

Now how about all the smart devices talk to each other using I dont know thread ?

whens that going to work ?

having to have the internet connected all the time when they could just form a "mesh" would actually be useful...

Proof of age system moves net ID a step closer

john Jones

NetIDme’s does not allow outside OpenID... so bad implementation

so NetIDme provide a OpenID = good

NetIDme does not allow you to use an existing OpenID = bad

it really would be as simple as keeping a database of all the verified OpenID's so that if someone said is openid "john.appleseed.name" or "fred@yahoo.com" over 18 NetIDme could say yes...

its that simple manage the NetIDme profile and link it to the OpenID of choice i.e. Yahoo account (that are OpenID's) etc

(and if they dont have a OpenID then provide them with one which is what NetIDme’s already doing)

far more powerful and might get used

Bluetooth Please it makes things simply and costs less !!

simply make bluetooth the underlying protocol please

a simple java app to take care of the crypto and selecting the payment terminal...

people at MIT have android unlocking cars and paying for things via bluetooth and there are plenty of phones with bluetooth on it now...

simple for the operators to deploy as well !

why dont people get this it will mean less problems in role out as new phones have the app pre loaded and old phones can be loaded if they want providing a larger user base rather than having to fit new ones...

I am sure the contractors and other supplier companies would prefer new "secure" RFID but really its less and more expensive...
