I’m an high tech enthusiastic. I love technology and how it makes our lives exciting. I’m always fascinated to see when technology exceeds our imagination and never stop to evolve. M2M (or Machine to Machine as some people call it) is where I believe the future lies. In the last decade alone the utilization of technology allowing machines to talk to each other become somewhat a phenomena which now days integrates to almost every aspect of our lives (in some cases without even know it). Here at the M2M Daily, we try to keep you up to date with everything M2M – Enjoy!
