Intelligent environment?

As I should have said before, me and Fabio are in Cambridge (UK) for the International Symposium on Intelligent Environments hold here by Microsoft Research. Today we had a great keynote speaker: Don Norman. He had a cool speech against the idea of Intelligent Environment. I've got the felling that the idea of Smart-stuff communicating with other smart things all around you and ordering milk when you finish it is loosing its cool effect. Probably we won't live in a smart house even in 10 years from now... surely we are going to use better (and smarter) device, buit nothing that would take care to much about taking decision for us. Our everyday life, as the usual expert says, is always a special case.
