Lots of home automation devices use Bash too which was recently discovered vulnerable. The technology really isn't there yet (no unified standard, etc. etc.) and I'd avoid anything that directly connects to your router for automation. Nest looks sweet, but I'm sure it's going to be a total nightmare for the owner if it gets hacked.

We've had pretty good results using mesh networked zwave devices hooked to a security panel reporting through alarm.com. But still, it's got a web login and I use a username/password, so it's as vulnerable as anything else.

i prefer intricate mechanics over electric automation, i think you lose something when everything is automated and done for you (although very convenient). especially when its more open to failure and you become dependant

I find the more people rely on technology the less interested they are in common sense/manually working things out for themselves (extreme generalization ftw)

Vaguely remember some shit about how our brains are shifting from primarily storing information to largely remembering where to find it - if the state of my memory is anything to go by then the next generation is probably screwed

<Guitah> not arguing with a Brit about tea is tha sensible thing to do :)
<Appleby> it is common knowledge it is pointless arguing with an addict :p
<Appleby> thus it is pointless arguing about tea with brits

well surely knowing where to find knowledge is very important for gaining it

Well if you were in a library, surely the one book you'd most want to have to hand is the index.
