On the stuff it does cover? Low on detail, long on gee-wow, and mostly very speculative. To say "optimistic" understates it; in many case the things he outlines will not be allowed in our lifetimes simply because of the safety & liability issues. And, as mentioned already, he's turning a blind eye to the problems inherent in keeping software updated, distributing patches, and keeping thieves from just downloading the data from your thermostat to see when you're away on vacation or blackmailers from just listening to voice data recorded by your voice-activated appliances to get new stuff to blackmail you about. If you can't keep the software updated, you can't keep it secure, and none of these companies is addressing the infrastructure issues they need to address to keep it updated.
