Having energy harvesting capability is quite interesting.

What I would really like in an iPhone is a solution to the power problem. I once heard that iPhone 5 would have solar cells integrated on the casing thereby allowing the battery to charge more frequently, thus reversing the constant draining of the battery by power hungry apps. However, I doubt if this technology will be available in 5 as I don't see any info about it anymore.

Well I have a 3GS, I skipped 4 to wait for 5! However, if 5 ends up being a slight improvement over 5, maybe, I'll wait for 6. :-)

iPhone 4 is significantly different from 3, with the introduction of improved retina display, face time, gyroscope, etc. Will a new analog instrument be integrated in the iPhone 5 ... just as the gyroscope was introduced in 4, for example? When I hear "iPhone 5" being bandied about, I expect significant changes over the existing version 4. Not just improved processor speed.

There is always a danger in assigning numbers to quantifiable stuff. Maybe the Apple 4+ is really a 5- and until we have one in our hands and can evaluate without prejudice we won't know. But speculation is good. It keeps the mind racing and the blood from curling.

Still a speculation. Until it comes, I will not comment.

I don't understand the infatuation of the iPhone. My boss has one and when he calls me, I always have a hard time understanding him with the sound breaking up. Also, the calls are often dropped. Many times he says that he has to wait until his phone reboots before he can call back. Just don't see the attraction.

Frank, the 4G iPhones exist, just go to Europe where they are supported. The problem is that the network provider, ATT, had "clipped the wings" off US iPhones to throttle down their bandwidth usage. US network capacity is the problem. The acquisition of T-Mobile by AT&T will not increase market competition (read expanded US network bandwidth), but it will be good for shareholders. An AT&T spokesman said that the take over is good for customers "as measured by the value of improved call quality"...like their ability to maintain iPhone connectivity was already an industry high water mark and bandwidth... "we don't need no stink'in bandwidth"

The advance of technology can never keeps up with public expectation. Sonner or later Apple will stumble.

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.
