As 2011 unfolds, that Internet of Things is going to become a lot more apparent because of three intersecting trends. The first is the rise of system-on-a-chip (SOC) architectures that will make it a lot easier to embed processors in places most of us would not have thought possible. The second is the advent of cloud computing platforms that will make it a lot easier to remotely manage these devices. And the third is the proliferation of application development tools that will attract more developers to build these types of applications.
