Refactoring Consumer Electronics

By Bob Frankston | IEEE Xplore | January 2013

The consumer electronics (CE) business is in the throes of a wrenching change from business in which value is added through the use of sophisticated electronics to one in which information is the “secret sauce.” The new opportunity is interconnecting devices and information. But, as we will see, this puts the telecommunications business model at odds with the consumer electronics need for connectivity as a basic resource.

In the past, the industry’s use of connectivity has been viewed as a layer of added value. This is no longer true. This is because communications in the sense of exchanging meaning between devices is no longer communications in the sense of information confined to a channel. The Internet has made distance disappear in the sense that two devices can easily exchange bits even if they are literally a world apart.
