    Almost by definition, appliances are useful, cost-effective devices or tools. This holds true for "smart" appliances as well-they must provide a reasonable level of computational and communications capability and be interoperable with other devices in their environment. The issues around interoperability are best solved via standards-based connectivity and communications protocols, such as Jini View full abstract»
