Have you noticed that consumer goods driven by programmable chips are always labelled as "smart" or "green" in the store, but once put into operation are often quite dumb? Let's set aside the issue of self-driving cars that go crunch and consider outdoor LED lighting. Anybody noticed that it is often left on all day? I thought they were supposed to be green and smart? On my street there are at least two houses that never turn off their LED porch lights, and they are so bright, they even stand out in the middle of the day. Besides wasting energy and displaying hypocrisy of the owner, these lights go to show that just because a high tech appliance is programmable, doesn't mean that it will be programmed to operate in a smart or energy efficient way. Also, the laws of economics apply - the cheaper something is, the more people use it and the less they care if they waste it.
