>> MOVIE RECOMMENDATION - I.T. FEAT PIERCE BROSNAN
Most people who know me know I like a good movie every now and then - this
one seems fitting.
If you want to see what Hollywood has put a spin on IoT and security; then
you should take a look at the 2016 crime thriller blockbuster
A great movie that highlights the risk of smart homes and the
ongoing threat of hackers and losing control of your personal privacy -
it may definitely deter a lot of people from going down the smart home
route for a while; out of pure fear.
Mike Regan has everything he could ever want, a beautiful family and a
top of the line smart house. The company he owns is on the verge of changing
flight leasing forever. That is, until the relationship with his closest
advisor turns nasty, to the point where his teenage daughter is being
stalked and his family is under attack through every technological facet.

Without spoiling the movie - my favourite moment reveals the following
consultant: all the house like this, smart everywhere?
consultant: all the rooms?
regan: yeah (pause) how do we start
consultant: we make the house dumb
The movie has been done well; from a technical standpoint it hits all
the right points - I have seen some of the reviews on IMDB make complaints
about referencing the wrong constitutional amendments and the fact
the wrong law enforcement agencies were used; but that shouldn't ruin
the experience of the movie. That is; unless your an idiot.
Just keep in mind; if you get an IT person to help you with anything technical
- never piss them off.
