apps everywhere, I think not. apps, in the apple sense are about over. connectivity is not a passing fad, though it's not going to be easy or fast. consider protocols, especially authorization and authentication. having your shoes and clothing report to you sounds great, but how do you ensure they're not merely broadcasting? oh, no - my pants have been hacked! trivial protocols like BT pairing can't be extended to that kind of scale. consider also issues of privacy - what are the legal ramifications when our _stuff_ constantly has us under surveillance. do you want your underwear's activity log to be subpoena-able? if you configure your stuff to forget in some time window, how do you know the firmware is really, truely forgetting?

You are completely correct, Luis. Many are embedding electronics into shoes, clothing, accessories and other "all-Internet" devices around us. We will be connected to everybody everywhere. We just need to solve the signal and EMI interference problems, and a few other issues. Microsoft and Ford are only a couple of bigwigs that are bringing the next stage of natural connectivity to drivers. Many more are embedding intelligence in cars. Check out the upcoming webinar on the subject: http://www.eetimes.com/electrical-engineers/education-training/webinars/4216833/Designing-Intelligence-into-the-Car

I can see now that we have apps everywhere! On the mobile phones, now on the car! Yesterday I was reading about the vision Qualcomm's CEO has of the future, that is a world where silicon chips are found in things as different as running shoes, clothing, and the like and now I see that big companies like Microsoft and Ford are also stepping on the same path. On the other hand, the US might be missing more engineers that they would like but I was reading also about the fact that events like the IBM machine who won Jeopardy (did it won? or almost) pulled attention from the youngsters and now Computer Science is gaining adepts. I think the future will be filled with electronics, computing and robots. Cool! What do you think?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
