When tech and medicine meet, everyone benefits. Smart bandages incorporate new tech like color-changing liquids, electrode arrays, Bluetooth, and more.

COMMENT:  I see Apple TV becoming a secondary home automation hub and interfacing with a primary hub over Wi-Fi to give users access from their mobile devices. That's because it makes no sense for Apple to replicate the functions of existing hubs that support more of the existing home networking standards, such as Zigbee, Z-Wave, Insteon, ANT, and UPnP so it can address the millions of devices already deployed with those standards. 

Still, it's not clear that Apple will be able to take the Smart Home concept from market niche to mainstream. That vision has eluded companies for over 50 years. (See http://www.mhealthtalk.com/elusive-smart-home/.)

Humans too?
A study of the lives and deaths of 10,000 elephants shows babies born when their mothers are stressed have fewer calves themselves and age far more quickly.

COMMENT:  Apple devices only support Bluetooth & Wi-Fi, not the existing home networking standards, such as Zigbee, Z-Wave, Insteon, ANT, and UPnP; so Apple can't address the millions of devices already deployed with those and other standards. That's why I see Apple TV becoming a secondary home automation hub and interfacing with a primary hub that gives Apple users access the millions of existing devices through the phone or watch. It makes no sense for Apple to replicate the functions of existing hubs and more sense to interface with them using Wi-Fi, and all it takes is making these primary hubs HomeKit Ready.

Still, it's not clear that Apple will be able to take the Smart Home concept from market niche to mainstream. That vision has eluded companies for over 50 years. (See http://www.mhealthtalk.com/elusive-smart-home/.)

Story
Tagline
Founder & Senior Editor, Modern Health Talk, an online community about home health care tech
Introduction

I'm an IBM trained technologist and market strategist, now a futurist, consultant, consumer advocate and founder of Modern Health Talk, an online community about low- and high-tech solutions for safe & healthy independent living at home.

Bragging rights
PERSONAL: Proud husband of the world's greatest mom, father of the world's greatest high school band director, and grandfather of the world's prettiest and smartest 2-year old. ADVOCACY: With no funding, the non-profit consumer advocacy that I cofounded successfully opposed powerful lobbyists for the $35 billion Texas homebuilding industry to enact new consumer protections and abolish an abusive state agency. PROFESSIONAL: Introduced IBM to the Connected Home market and influenced its consumer & wireless strategies, and held leadership positions in wireless and home gateway standards development.

"Arrrr" -- No, not the pirate saying. I knocked off the "R" key on my friend's Dell notebook, volunteered to get it fixed, and was worried sick. I took in the Anderson Ln store in Austin and showed and saw Lauren at the Repair counter. "Arrrr" I said, showing her the key cap and the missing place on the keyboard. Three minutes later she came back with the fixed PC. Rob did it and fast, and they charged me nothing. Thanks, Rob & Lauren (i.e. FishFace because of her lip stud). You saved my bacon.
