Spoof on Silicon Valley and Internet of Things from 2014 : Smart Pipe

While writing an upcoming post about why the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) is a terrible idea on multiple levels, it occurred to me that I had not yet posted one of the best and smartest YouTube spoofs about that subject. FYI, I first came across this spoof in late-2014 and thought it was hilarious enough to post on many places other than this blog. In case you are wondering, the imaginary IoT product mentioned in that spoof is scarily close to some products that have actually received venture capital funding in Silly Valley.

Enjoy! Comments?

      With all the screwing around that Elizabeth Holmes did to lose the money invested in Theranos through lying and lawsuits (and ultimately, the biggest lie was that it didn’t have the technology to do the job) …
      is she related to John Holmes?

        Did you ever see the movie Wonderland?

        Maybe she was his “lovechild.” Who knows…

        @Elizabeth Holmes, is she related to John Holmes?

        I remember reading that her father was a vice president of Enron corporation. Enough said.

    Superb presentation on the Smart Pipe, I am very certain narcissists and other people of the bullying mindset(like CONservatives – “it’s only wrong unless we do it” … and LIEberals – “let’s get everyone else but the rich to pay for this”) could believe in such a product and company.
    Also like how the word anus is so enthusiastically (salad-)tossed around.
