How many would resist the temptation to throw some code together, ship it, and pretend it's real? After all, who's going to argue with top-notch scientific facts like:
"Researchers previously knew that genetics played a large role in determining face shape, since identical twins share DNA."
Criminals and terrorist-sympathisers, that's who!

I don’t understand setting the bar so much
higher for them than mechanical locks.
Because the reviews I've seen indicate almost all smart locks fall a long way short of the security of equally priced mechanical locks.
This sounds less like some sort of massively impossible barrier to overcome and more like a Project Euler problem, and one not all that far into the sequence, either.
One of the things you have to overcome if you want to think like a security person is that, yes, there are attackers that will put some effort into attacking you if you are a target of any consequence, certainly effort far exceeding what you just described. I've watched some people at the company I work for have to overcome that handicap myself. Yes, there are attackers that are not just script kiddies and actually, like, have skills and such.
>You know, sitting on the beach in Greece with friends I've heard people complaining that because we had a financial crisis they miss some of the comforts they used to have. I am like, "Come on! Enjoy your life and health. You are eating sardines and drinking Ouzo by the beach. We are free, we have good friends around and we laugh - this is what people are supposed to do."
>Don't concentrate only on work, stressful and bad things in your life. Concentrate instead on creating good moments and being around good people, because life is so beautiful.
This is great when we are undermining laws of nature, much more case dependent when we are undermining explicit policy decisions.
 And frankly, what country is entirely capitalistic in all of its industries.
Basically, they volunteer technical challenges they're aware of while simultaneously telling you what the high level solution is. But then you put a terminal in front of them and ask them to set up Postgres in a star schema with some dummy data, and then to write a query joining the two tables they were talking about before. Despite Postgres being on their resume, they'll completely flounder and not even know they need semicolons to terminate commands. Their joins won't just be wildly inefficient, they'll be syntactically incorrect and refuse to run. They won't be able to create, insert, select, truncate, drop, etc.
Keep in mind this example is just meant to be illustrative. Thinking through how to fix the scenario might not generalize to all the ways this can manifest.
I wish desktops had even a passing thought about display brightness, ditto for TV manufacturers.
Here's the point where it is all wired up.
No lock is totally secure, but at least a dumb lock requires physical presence to defeat.
I just made the distinction between casual eavesdroppers and determined attackers. Those determined attackers exist and are quite capable, I'm sure.
You might also want to look into your use of the word 'glib' here. I find it an uncharitable interpretation of my post to call it 'glib' or 'glib handwaving', to be honest.
I am currently leading a team of 7 (including myself) and we currently operate a Monolith Rails application with several small to medium microservices.
Our philosophy is essentially, is what we need part of the core functionality of our application, and does it rely on other core functionality. If so then it goes in the monolith. But if it is independent of the other core features then we build it as a standalone service.
We started moving to microservices ~2 years ago when our team was only 2 (me and 1 other). It was much more difficult to maintain at the time, but the flexibility in being able to rewrite certain things when necessary was greatly beneficial. Things like automating our build and great documentation for how things interconnect has alleviated alot of the trouble we had running our microservices.
But in any case, thanks to your information I've concluded that it's the Soviets who are responsible for the crimes of the Taliban.
When services are made free, people have to wait longer, paying with their time instead of with money.
People who don't want to wait and are not given the choice of paying for faster service end up having to buy cars instead, making traffic worse for everyone.
13 is a mess indeed but 4 is also bad , 7 has a lot of trouble, 12 has crack addicts on the dock menacing passengers, etc..
i’m also born and raised in Paris, and lived there for 40 years, but once you take the subway in other crowded cities ( honk kong, tokyo, shanghai, sf , london, etc) you realize having a subway that smells urine and shit , has technical issues every single days, and simply can’t handle the population flow at all, isn’t « normal ».
We can live with it, the whole society has adapted to it, but i wouldn’t call the situation «fine».
And from the looks of it's growth in Ontario grocery stores, the program is doing quite well.
You had to set up an account with a 3rd party service who required a picture of a photo id and a small fee ($5 for 30 days access, IIRC). The rental listings would ultimately link to the 3rd party service where you could schedule a visit to the house, then get a temporary code to access the key when you arrived. All of the homes still used traditional physical locks.
I'm not a fan of "smart" devices, but think this was actually a great service as long as the home is unoccupied. As a tenant I was able to easily visit a dozen different homes in one day without having to spend hours on the phone scheduling visits with property managers.
