    What an ugly term: internet of things. I sure hope somebody finds a catchy acronym for this term. That aside, while traditional western countries are exploring car and home connectivity and getting their feet wet with machine to machine connections (BlackBerry with project ION and QNX), China has been at the heart of this for a long time already. I may not necessarily want my fridge to be hyper-connected, but clearly this is where the world is moving. No wonder BlackBerry is trying to make a song and dance about their plans with the internet of things. Check this article out:

    CHINA LEADS GLOBAL MACHINE-TO-MACHINE (M2M) MARKET WITH OVER 50 MILLION CONNECTIONS, FINDS NEW GSMA REPORT | Newsroom
    China Accounts for 27 Per Cent of Total Global M2M Connections; Close Co-operation Between Mobile Operators and Government Driving Chinas M2M Leadership
    Shanghai: China is the global leader in the adoption of M2M technology with over 50 million connections or more than one quarter of the total M2M market in 2013, according to How China is Set for Global M2M Leadership, a new report issued today by the GSMA. Close collaboration between the countrys leading mobile operators China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom, state-owned enterprises and the government has enabled the market to grow dramatically in a relatively short period of time, laying the foundations for further expansion and the development of the Internet of Things (IoT).


    China is a rapidly developing country that is investing in communications technologies that will make its cities smarter and provide a better quality of life for its citizens, said Alex Sinclair, Chief Technology Officer, GSMA. Proactive government support has benefited China and its mobile operators, whereas in many global markets, regulatory uncertainty has held back the deployment of M2M solutions. The addressable market and the opportunity for further growth is immense, especially when one considers the sheer number of things such as cars or domestic appliances that could potentially be connected by mobile.

    You're being monitored too.
    NSA & CIA. Even if you're outside the US.
    At least this gives a big country like China the rights to monitor its citizens.
