Rejecting the Internet of Things:

Some people, when confronted with a simple problem like unlocking a door, think “I know, I’ll make a single-purpose robot or the equivalent mechanism that will lock and unlock my door for me, and then give it internet access, and then control it from my phone.”

Now they have 25 problems.

Thou shalt not conflate the elation attributable to getting some over-engineered thing to work at all with the satisfaction of solving a real problem, really well.
