20 Reasons Why ‘Smart Devices’ Are Actually Dumb As Hell

What’s the point of ‘smart’ and ‘connected’ objects? Are they supposed to help us get through menial tasks more efficiently, or have the capitalists figured out a clever way to perpetually profit off the objects we use on a daily basis? Sometimes it feels like the latter. When your printer holds your ink cartridge hostage because you haven’t paid your monthly printer subscription, I think it’s safe to say you’ve been swindled by the ‘Internet of Things.’ And technology itself isn’t necessarily to blame. We’ll never get to that fabled techno-utopia as long as ‘innovation’ prioritizes profit rather than usefulness. Until then, we get to clumsily navigate this boring dystopia of connected crap, eternally updating the firmware on our smart trashcans.
