I work in IT which is the reason this house has:

- mechanical windows
- mechanical door locks
- no Alexa/HomeKit/Google
- no Internet connected thermostats, lamps, or whatnots
- a dumb TV
- wall switches for lights

@jpmens this meme stinks privilege like no other. Most people have none of that shit simply because they're expensive as fuck and make only sense if you live in the same place for an extended period. Also, all that hardware was developed and marketed by other people who 'work in IT' just like you.

@steko As for the people in IT who developed such hardware and marketed it (the latter more marketing deparment than IT), they're conducting capitalism and consumerism, and the target audience is eating it up (at least those who can afford it). @jpmens
