Along with the great new name we are expanding the coverage to include the full scope of next-generation of smart devices and connected products hitting the consumer market today — think connected lifestyle (health trackers, wearables), connected home, connected toys, connected automotive, and more! Be sure to visit the Connectedly is Open for Business welcome post for the full manifesto.
Nobody guessed the Connectedly name right in our guess the new name contest. Many of you got close, but no cigar. It's not surprising though - it took us over a year to land on the Connectedly name. Personally, I really love it. It's actually similar to CrackBerry in a lot of ways. It is a word in the dictionary (there can be only one connectedly!). It's highly relevant to the subject matter, but doesn't just spell it out directly. It's fun word to say. It's memorable. And somehow, just like CrackBerry, it starts with a C, ands in a Y and has a double consonant. Weird. Must be fate!
