You're not alone Rick. I have a phablet....and it certainly hasn't convinced me I need a tablet, too. If I did get one, I think I'd be in that 1.8% with a Surface, which is the only one I've tried that I actually found very comfortable and intuitive.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
