    Here's why: The IoT and the Internet-enabled rubber ducky

    Because the vendor.

    It isn't about the consumer.

    They want a cheap duck. They get a cheap duck.

    If the duck quacks back to the vendor, then the vendor harvests data, say temperature data, and can make a more appropriate next gen of duck. Say, cheaper rubber coz baby baths ate cooler than the rubber originally thought to be a necessary minimum for reasonable durability.

    We live in a world where a usb stick is cheaper than buying a lanyard to hang it around your neck.

    We are far beyond Economy 101. Scale is king. Data is just the I part of the oT.
