Good to know. Thanks for your advice.It's always great to learn from our readers what they deem as the best practice. Just to be clear, though, this Japan special digital edition is NOT the direct digital replica of the printed magazine. It is ONLY available in digital, and it is created ground up for this issue.

Actually, you can see it in pdf. All you need to do is to push "the save to desktop" button in the toolbar above each page (the forth icon from your right) on nxtbook.

I absolutely hate the direct digital replica of the printed magazine. Every journal I have seen is slow to load, and is then awkward to scan, due to the mismatch in resolution between the screen and the page. I have to zoom in a bit and then scroll around, and typically an article is on more than one page, not always easy to find where it continues. The best example of good presentation is the Economist: and email offers a menu of articles, which I can then access in a computer-friendly way and read easily.

Perhaps you could produce a simple PDF file? Flash, aka 'PornoPlayer' is strictly forbidden in our offices - so I cannot read this.

Truly an outstanding piece of journalism. It's amazing that the EE Times team was able to pull together such a complete and insightful special issue so quickly.

Wow. Mainline news media has been struggling to present a coherent picture of the chaos of this series of events, but this document contains an order of magnitude more information and a balance between sensitivity for the victims and matter-of-fact analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the technical and political systems involved. It gives me faith that we all will learn from this and be stronger as a result. Larry M.

Really the life has become too much dependent on the electricity, but what I have come to know reading this article is, Japan is being able to produce consistent electricity supply thought the country. And in case of the disaster they are backing up very fast. Great Country. Great People.

The most interesting part of this digital engineering, in addition to learning more about Japan's culture and history, is how engineers and planners are working to creatively and quickly problem solve. As the leaders of lean manufacturing, I strongly believe that Japan will continue to lead even as they recover. I completely agree with "hm" above that the world has so much respect for the Japanese people's tenacity. Their contributions to technology and every industry is valuable and I also send out continued prayers for everyone touched by the recent tragedy.

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.
