We live in the Internet Age. We have watched the Internet expand through the use of social media and otherwise. As we watched, it expanded into every nook and cranny of our lives. Through the wonders of modern technology, vendors, service providers, and hackers can track our buying habits, reading habits, driving habits, eating habits, lifestyle habits, our location, and even our health. As the Internet’s invasiveness grew, it evolved into the Internet of Things (IoT). For those of you not familiar with that term, it references the extension of Internet connectivity to numerous things and devices that can communicate with each other and other devices and interact with owners and others over the Internet. Many of these devices have the attraction of utility for attorneys in their personal and professional lives.
