Is smart technology really smart? I started to think about this question after reading an article that talked about what we would do if “the big one hit" and we didn't have electricity. The move toward everything becoming electric puts us in a dangerous situation when electricity is no longer available. With threats of cyber attacks shutting down the electric grid, I started to look around at everything that would be shut down if we had an electrical blackout.
The first thing I noticed was my alarm clock would not work because it's a plug-in.
