MALVERN A lawyer with an office on the Main Line has been charged with selling high-end wines without a liquor license, offering buyers their choice of varieties from a 97-page bottle list, according to the Chester County district attorney.

At the end of the 1990s, MIT scholar Kevin Ashton suggested the dot.com boom would spawn an "Internet of Things," with everyday gadgets linked by software. No more wall switches. Smartphones are making that happen. As gadget-makers figure out how home and office cameras, kitchen and laundry appliances, heaters and air conditioners, computers and media players can be switched and scheduled from phone apps, American manufacturers, retailers, even phone and cable companies, have been rushing to build "smart home" remote-control systems that can be worked from a phone.
