Convergence in technologies has brought about significant changes in the way we communicate, socialize, and even work. The convergence has also accelerated developments in the creation of physical smart objects that not only communicate with each other, but also communicate with humans utilizing the Internet. This creates a complex interconnectedness that has been referred to as the Internet of Things. This paper discusses those developments in terms of the media impact, and examines significant issues that are raised in the areas of privacy, security, and legal concerns.
