  • Could a manufacturer (of an oven for example) remotely change the code on the imp without the users knowledge? From Techcrunch "And because the smarts of the device can be updated from the cloud, manufacturers will be able to remotely monitor and update their products seamlessly, without consumers even knowing." This seems like a bad idea because now the security of all of these vendors and their employees is an issue. E.g. Turn every oven on to full power in the middle of the night or unlock every front door with one installed. Can the user "Lock" the imp out from being updated?

No public wish lists :(
