“A massive survey by the Pew Research Center about the Internet of Things in 2025 is very optimistic about its future, though its responses are filled with questions, doubts and caveats.

Hal Varian, Google’s chief economist, said in his response: “We will expect things to respond to vocal commands. We will be able to say ‘TV, pause’, ‘lights, on’, ‘temperature, up’, and so on. We will able to control our home systems remotely, particularly from our car. This technology will be so cheap that it will naturally be incorporated into most appliances and devices.”
