As "Swift On Security" put it:

"What terrible machines and tools have we inflicted on the public.
Ones built for us, and marketed to them. "Safe." Lies. "Usable."

"Internet of Things:
These are people's homes. These are people's lives.
And we'll throw them to the sharks.
The future is a dystopia."

As I keep saying: when you see the phrase "internet of things", think
"unfixable Heartbleed everywhere forever."
