I'm an employee at a company that was acquired. I can tell you from experience that this doesn't necessarily mean that Palm's fight ends. In fact, acquisitions often turn out to be big steps up for the company being acquired.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices?

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.
