Run your home

Imagine a near future when just a single touch on your tablet or smartphone will start your coffee maker, lock your doors, turn on (or off) the lights and open a window.

Or maybe you would use the same gadget to answer the doorbell and talk to a visitor, even if you're half a world away. Or maybe you'd get an e-mail telling you when the kids come home from school.

AT&T says

all that and more is on the way next year. Called „Digital Life,“ the system is the telecommunications giant's entree into the world of home security, an industry the company says was ripe for some serious innovation. Digital Life will use sensors that assign individual Internet protocol, or IP, addresses to everything from a window to a refrigerator to, yes, a coffeemaker. Once linked up, they can then be controlled remotely by Apple, Android, BlackBerry and Windows devices.

Oh, actually that's a dream of every housewife! Just imagine: while my microwave is preparing dinner, a robot looks after my baby, a vacuum cleaner is cleaning my apartment… what should I do just not to get fat and lazy?

Continuing the thought: what could happen if someone took controll over your machinery using a freshly created maleware… To me this step forward is awesome and frightening at the same time.
