Apple Broke My Home (Again)

Just about six months after breaking my home through the HomeKit automation I had set up, Apple broke my home automation again with a shiny new version of its HomeKit architecture.

An architecture that, by the way, reduces the differentiation of HomeKit-compatible devices to the lowest common denomination Apple decides to support. Participation in the HomeKit scheme as a technology provider is a bad idea, producing an artificially limited marketplace for consumers.

I would suggest you consider the reporting of these technology snafus not merely as grumpy gripes but as a severe threat of how technology, increasingly infiltrating our daily lives and at some point influencing your mind with AI, plays hooky with your constitution.

Can you imagine technology companies someday running the intelligence humanity relies on being as badly managed as their current core competency? Technology that does not improve human adaptability to nature’s entropy is cancer instead. You heard it here first from a former technologist.

Technology that breaks down this often has no right to invade our lives.

The sign of an intelligent nation is its willingness and ability to reinvent itself, upstream. Let’s inspire the world with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
