Consumer devices are increasingly coming out of the box Internet-ready, and while a washing machine with its own IP address may be convenient to some and overkill to others, the reality is that this trend is more likely to boom than bust in the coming months and years. The other reality s that the tinkerers out there are going to tinker away with these things, finding new and interesting techniques to leverage their Internet connectivity and computing ability, and eventually, perhaps inevitably, there will be exploits. As the saying goes, that Internet-connected dryer is all fun and games until someone hacks into it and ruins your delicates.
