No one wants to touch the IoT edge  Link

How far Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and the IT guys will travel toward the edge. In this version of the edge, I’m thinking about gateways and devices on the factory floor; in recent months, each platform provider has built software that helps extend their cloud operations to devices that run on premise.
