Make Yourself a Cup of Coffee From Your Bed

Some consumer electronics companies are trying to lock consumers into their products by creating a seamless user experience, but that in turn can create interoperability issues with devices from other manufacturers. However, Qualcomm has a slightly different approach. The chip designer has developed AllJoyn, which it tentatively calls - the Internet of Everything. Whether you own Samsung gadgets or Apple gizmos each can be connected and controlled by your mobile using Qualcomm's open source networking platform. The network even extends to everyday household items. Fancy brewing a fresh cup of coffee while still lying in bed? That's possible with Qualcomm's technology.
