Is There Any Way to Avoid Standards Wars in the Emerging Internet of Things?
IEEE Spectrum - August 2014
"Smart cars, smart gear, smart homes, smart offices and smart cities are all being developed and prototyped today, in hopes they'll benefit from the so-called "Internet of Things" (IoT). Equipping just about every object so that it can connect to the Internet is no different than bringing out single new technologies. Well, at least in one respect: Wherever there are rival standards-as purchasers of junked consumer electronics standards like Betamax and HD-DVD know-there are winners, and there are losers."
