I guess I'm old school -- I remember when HP was a technical innovator, and am sad to see it go this way. I'm not sure if hiring Carly II at this point is hastening death, or just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
Hopefully with this choice of Meg Whitman, the revolving door of HP CEOs will stay still for awhile.
One thing she clearly understands is the urgency of deciding yes or no on keeping the PC business. I love the comment "It's not like fine wine and does not get better with time." In fact, it's more like a gallon of milk that got its expiration date stamped on it the day Leo made his announcement about spinning out the PC biz -- a little more sour and a little closer to worthless with each passing day.
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.
