It is pretty bad to sell your customers assets at rock bottom prices to temporarily raise cash for yourself. Goldman Sachs is pretty much a ponzi scheme with its partners on top and not much different than Bernie Maddoff. I'll stick with more down to earth firms like Fidelity, Vanguard, and Charles Schwab that have morals and know what fiduciary duty actually means. I am surprised that many rich people gamble with many of these hedge funds and other unstable financial firms like Goldman Sachs that are heavily over-leveraged.
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.
