It's all good and well to use technology to help people make their homes more efficient. However, as a security consultant, the solutions we come across are implemented so poorly from a security standpoint that the security and privacy of those using the technology is very easily compromised. And those compromises can threaten peoples' health and welfare.

What a cool article. It is a shame that it appears in the same issue as one, http://www.startribune.com/local/183660511.html, showing that most MN students won't be held to an academic standard necessary to work at such an engineering facility.

The vast majority of HON's research dollars (not their development dollars) result in $0 revenue. And by vast, I mean 95%. The output of these projects simply never reach the market. Career's are spent on research whose output is $0 in revenue with dollar-for-dollar, negative bottom-line impact. As for the energy solutions, HON would be better off if they gifted the research dollars to utilities and took a write-off so the utilities could subsidize their customers' bills. That would do more good for HON shareholder's, as well as the utilities customers, than wasting the research dollars on projects that go nowhere.
