The Internet of Things (IoT) is like the air: It is so ubiquitous that it tends to be overlooked. But the reality of the IoT, and the machine-to-machine (M2M) sensors that are its heart and soul, is that it is transforming much of what we do and how we do it.
Strategy Analytics released a report last month that predicted M2M connections will grow from 368 million this year to 2.9 billion by 2022.
