We at hSo are passionate about getting online and staying connected. After all we are an internet service provider. However, in the growing era of the Internet of Things, there are limits to what should be connected to the internet and what shouldn't. We've watched with amusement parody twitter accounts such as @internetofshit break down the completely outlandish inventions that the Internet of Things has created. Here are some of our favourites:

Nothing terrifies us more than an Internet-connected freight train. It's big and mechanical and it reminds us of the Terminator. Just no.

“It would be great if we could create a toy designed to help children sleep and make sure it's always connected to the greatest source of entertainment in the world.” Parenting 101.

I updated my Philips Hue bridge. One of the light bulb didn’t get the firmware update. Now I can’t control it. cc @internetofshit

Can you think of the chaos this would cause if there was no connectivity? Think of the poor postmen!

A $99 duck that can watch you in the bath. Creepy. But cool. But mainly creepy.
We know it seems hip and cool to be part of the future and have every single item in your home connected to the internet, some appliances are just not worth it. Just walk away from the madness now, scientists.
Perhaps the final word is best left with @internetofshit:
“Let's be honest, the Internet of Things is what nobody needs but we all deserve.”
