“Smart” is the new “For babies”15 May 2019
It used to be that to get a higher price on a consumer product, you created a version “for babies”.
Baby shampoo is more expensive than regular shampoo. Baby clothing is so much more expensive (at least in cost per surface area) than adult clothing. Baby food. Baby toys. Furniture for babies.
Though “for babies” is here to stay, it’s newer version is “smart”.
Smart speaker. Smart lock. Smartphone. Smart water…
Hoping we can keep the ‘smart’ prefix to things that are really smarter.
