B&N has launched Nook Study which is some kind of electronic textbook. I am sure they have planned to release a iPad apps.
As the competition from Amazon Fire and Nook Tablet, I am pretty sure Apple are planning how to react. iPad Lite may come too early. iPad 3 may likely be the focus of the upcoming release.
Given the fact that the last iMac Desktop launched more than a year ago, the possibility of a new design is high. Will Apple give us another surprise?
Apple Television Set is the highest anticipated item. A lot of analyst believe Apple will once again change the TV industry. I stay skeptical and not sure what Apple would do to redefine the TV.
Last, iPhone 5 will likely release late this year given, I believe, LTE becomes widely available.
What surprise can Apple bring us? Stay Tune.
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.
