Printers are still important in the workplace where tangible returns are of interest.

Targeting IoT Apps

Maybe one of the reasons printers have come up so often is related to the difficulties of envisioning how this technology will be useful (not that it won't) in practice.  The ability of millions of NFC-equipped devices to communicate is a capability but it will be interesting how this translates into usefuls apps.  Lots of possibilities.

That's funny, naperlou!  I think printers are still important.  Many don't trust the web and want something tangible, especially when money is involved.

@naperlou: Good point and agreed, but what I find more interesting about printers is the latest 3D printing facility. That can be more useful for many things in the future.

Chuck, you mention printers multiple times in your article.  Who uses those anymore?  I don't think that the IoT was targeted at printers.  Those have been around for a long time and the connections between the network and the printer is a pretty well established thing.  I really don't want my refrigator to print out an alert at 2AM.
