Keep an “I” on our week (Smart edition)

Click to go to the Kickstarter project

The top three articles this week were

  1. The Internet of Smartthings 
  2. Smartphones Plurality in 2012, Majority in 2013
  3. Amazon stops and starts  

It’s been a SMART week one way and another.

We continue to be impressed with the Kickstarter project for the multi (up to 100 they claim) device home hub. The sensors/apps are things so you get lots of “and one more thing” type statements/comments. They hope to supply the hub internationally.

Having had a target of raising $250,000 they are now over $500,000 and with 21 days to go they are now hoping for the elusive $1 million which has only been achieved by 9 of the total approaching 29,000 successful (in fund raising terms) projects since its launch just over 3 years ago. A majority of the funds have been raised linked to product rewards. We reckon the figure is well over 70%. Also 5 backers have pledged at the over $10,000 level.

Worth a look.

Here’s a of short videos about another thing!.

On the Apple front look out for the announcement of, or your invitation to, their heavily trailed media event on September 12!
