Smarter than you, dude–if you were dumb enough to buy them in the first place.
Yeah, what a swell idea–give somebody, you don’t know who, you don’t know where, control of the lights inside your house. What could possibly go wrong?
As a general rule of thumb: “Smart” means something that will spy on you. Smart meters, smartphones, smart TV–really, you don’t need these in your life. Why anyone would ever want to collect all that mundane information about ordinary people’s lives–well, let’s just say it can’t possibly be for any good reason.
P.S. — I am sorry the Comments are disabled. At the moment, the $#$@%$ computer will not allow me to enable them. It must be a “smart” computer.
