If Zoran could figure itself in the Flip then it can do better than go with CSR. Who knows with all the samrt phone deluge where the next order is going to come from. Zoran meanwhile can do very well to re-evaluate it's core startegy and consolidate it's businesses to cater to a particular segment.
These two companies are twins; the stock chart comparing these two looks practically as if they are the same company. I figure that Zoran was insisting on cash and CSR was looking for a way to spin why they caved - "a lesser offer [in terms of overall valuation] due to recent weakness". The irony is that CSR offers less because Zoran looks weaker of late, and Zoran wants cash because CSR looks... weak[er of late].

I'm betting Zoran was insisting on cash and CSR wanted a way to spin why they caved ("lesser offer in terms of valuation due to poor recent showing"). The irony is that Zoran's weakness is mirrored by CSR's - CSR offers less because Zoran looks weaker of late and Zoran wants cash because CSR looks... weaker of late.
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.
