The season brings good tidings for shutterbugs. Whether you're shopping for someone new to digital cameras or a seasoned hobbyist, you'll find megapixels priced extremely favorably this year. Well, it goes every year, anyway.
But we must admit that there are also choices of what's the best among the best. The best products continue to come from trusted names in the business, Canon and Nikon. Other companies offer lower prices and fun features, but for optimal optics you'll want to stick with the leaders in photography. Though some brands are also cramming to go up with the trends but these two brands still leads the business world. Trusted brands, eh? http://tinyurl.com/3ete28p

Glad to be reading eetimes again! I didn't know about the QiYi, the nemesis of YouTube... it's all chinesse though, I can't read chinese. But considering that chinese is the first most spoken language worldwide then, I'm in the minority :(. I got to start learning chinese.
From this article we can see two phenomenoms of the emerging markets, 1st the leap frog effect that might happen with the quick jump from 3G to 4G networks and 2nd, the fact that people aren't willing to spend on e-reader material. That happens in other countries as well and so it depends on the buying power of the people. It will change with time then.
When eInk technology gets a bit closer to mature, will the tablet and eBook merge into 1 single product? Unification of products sounds like a trend. Yet, the product will fall into all sort of problem including battery life and performance tradeoff.
I may like to add some important and missing makrket like - automobile electronics, power electroincs for auto industry and battery technology. Auto industry has potential for huge market and China will be like to be front runner.
"E-readers are relatively pricey in China because e-reader vendors need to make money from the hardware since Chinese users resist paying for the content. That will change over time, possibly several years."
Amazon's Kindle 3 supports Chinese and is being sold in China, I wonder what business model Amazon has in mind to crack the Chinese E-book market.
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
