Internet Of Everything
Cisco has been preaching the "Internet of Everything," and it is only picking up steam. The world is no longer thinking in terms of just how to connect people online; the world is evolving to connect people to things and things to each other. As part of the revolution, mobile devices not only get Facebook updates when friends change statuses, but plants can now tweet their owners when they need to be watered and baby pajamas can alert parents via push notification when a baby is getting a fever. Cisco estimates the Internet of Everything market to be approximately $14 trillion and expects 10 billion Internet-connected devices by 2016.
