We should think about the broader notion of an ecology of connected devices: why this notion didn't work in the past, what it'll take to make it work this time, and what issues we, as designers of this ecology, should be thinking about as we move toward the future.
Internet, user interface, dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP), Bluetooth
