My original post primarily had to do with pointing out Mozilla improved

[excerpt quote=\"
*Mozilla confirmed the cuts to the gadget group Thursday.*

"We have shifted our internal approach to the internet-of-things
opportunity," Mozilla said in a statement, "to step back from a focus on
launching and scaling commercial products to one focused on research and
advanced development, dissolving our connected devices initiative and
incorporating our internet-of-things explorations into an increased
focus on emerging technologies."

Or must I update my Internet terminology again??

To my understanding, "connected devices initiative" was the Mozilla term/process that was created to encompassed both "connected devices" and IoT, see more below:
