People who don’t trust anyone else want more control for themselves, right?

People were more enthusiastic about smart home appliances than self-driving cars, which only means they haven’t read enough science fiction about renegade vacuum cleaners. Ever pragmatic, they were three times more likely to cite cost than privacy as an obstacle to smart home tech. Finn will also send a copy of the study on request.
