Ivy was also responsible for the growth of the publications Chinese arm where a Mandarin version of it exists.

Jason Hope and his belief in The Internet Of Things

Jason hope, a man who has hope on the internet and all the things related to the internet, he believes will bring great benefit to humanity if always used properly. He is famous as an entrepreneur and an author, who has written a lot about technologies and trends of the internet. He thinks that this internet phase will be ruling the future and will completely overtake the things and technology, bringing a lot of comforts, ease and by far the biggest advancement in the tech industry. People read his publications and articles and are understanding how to incorporate the internet with technology, and how importantly is for the future. Those who won’t accept it will be left behind.

The internet of things means incorporating technology with the internet, like connecting your various tech, devices with the internet and using it in one click without moving. And by devices, it means all kind of devices that we use in our daily lives. The devices and technologies can be anything we use such as our cars, kitchen appliances, streetlights, mobile phones, TVs and all another kind of electronic devices. Sync it with your internet and everything is in your control, no matter how far you are from that device or appliance. And more data is shared with less waste and hustle.

He explains that this process will completely change the way business are operated and will be taking the technology industry to whole new level. Making everything computerized and less complicated.

Large companies are investing in this process, believing this best futuristic approach of time. And because of larges companies being influenced by this concept, the smaller companies will eventually be shifting to this concept sooner and later. And that is why Jason is quite sure that this approach will soon be the leader and will be followed by almost every company. He believes that the things of internet are the future of tech world, making work process easy and life easier.

Jason Hope explains in publications and articles that the smart technology will be the easiest option and the only option that will be available in future, so companies need to act faster and more maturely and should shift to smart technology as soon as possible as this will be the only advancement customers will be looking forward to. But it’s very important that this shift should be in the proper way, keeping the economy, business, and environment in consideration. This whole advancement shouldn’t be limited to smartphones and computers, it should also include some basic daily chores such as making morning coffees, turning light on and off when going to office or coming back, turning air conditioners on when coming back to home in summers and vice versa, and many more relevant apps should be made to engage the consumers and fulfil their requirements.

The internet of things should not be limited to urban areas only, this should engage the rural places as well, such as providing them with emergency responses and GPS tracking, so that tracking various accidents could be more accurate and easier. Jason believes that the internet should only be bringing benefits to society, not harms.
