Thank you for your comments. The article I wrote clearly discusses a product but my intent was to write a story that would be interesting, informative, and possibly helpful to other people in Mr. Taylor's situation. My apologies to those not familiar with some of the acronyms, it's always a tough call whether to use them or not in technical writing. As far as the Jeep statement, I was quoting Mr Taylor, who I'm sure has driven a jeep up there.

Hey, relax--if you pre-judge on the basis of a little hyperbole, you'll miss out on a lot of good stuff!

Once I saw this garbage statement I lost all interest in this article: "so rough it can wear out the wheels of an army jeep in a single trip"

As manager and editor of this site, I made the judgment call that this was a good story for our audience. Yes, it does promote a product, but it is also interesting and problem solving, talks about a tough situation and what was done about it. It went well beyond the usual "let me tell you about our product and why it is great." As for advertising, this company has never advertised with us, nor do I expect them to do so ever—it's not in the picture at all. And we have many companies who advertise but we never have articles from or about, and vice versa. As for CT: it's always a tough call, which things to spell out. Some readers want everything spelled out, but many are annoyed when you do that. Either way—someone will be upset!

CT = Current Transformer, standard AC current measuring device, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Current_transformer Yes this is an advertising piece, pushing the company's products, but as a case study it's instructive and they DO seem to have a good product to push.

I'm drowning in jargon. What's a CT? Do you have an editor? What is the cost for an EE Times story about a particular product?

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.
