Seed Is Creating A Truly Idiot-Proof Internet Of Things

 In the vast panoply of potential home networking protocols, there are only a few worth worrying about. Wi-Fi works well but it can go down and ZigBee and the like are sparsely supported.

 Seriously. Go look. Depending on your iCloud setting, U2’s latest album might be sitting in the Music app, ready to play. Otherwise, the album is most likely still shown, available to download from iCloud from your iPhone, iPad, or iTunes app. Worse yet, it’s rather difficult to rid your phone and iTunes account of the
