Piracy is never going to end. We should reconsider what piracy is. Why does the copyright of a movie or song lasts for a very long time? Service like Netflix have been operating for some time now. I wonder how to they fight piracy. Anyways, is goog to hear movies are getting better and better.

You hit the nail on the head (s)! It's all about good entertaining and non-pandering content, and a matter of good technology making the content available anywhere, anytime. Obtaining a digital copy of a bad movie is as disappointing as going to see mediocre flick in the theater only to exit less $100 for paying for family and friends. We need 3-D that works on any screen in the home, office, and in the car--w/o the extra burden of wearing glasses. There must an outfit that is working on this somewhere. Where are you?

The only digital funk the movie theatres, and the movie industry is in the one with 100's of millions of dollars. The only thing the digital downloads have done is make it more obvious to us people who actually pay to get in the theatres what movies are worth seeing, and what movies are garbage. When an early copy of XMen was available through the torrents the movie director went on line and told the scene community that it was unfinished, and the scene community should not judge that release except as a preview. XMen made over 300 million dollars. Go read the articles !!!! Downloads do not hurt GOOD Movie revenues. Downloads do SAVE ME MONEY, because i can judge whether i want to spend money based on a pretty good representation of the actual movie, rather a trailer where in some cases there is more action than the actual movie.

Empty movie theaters litter the landscape. Why? Because widescreen TV delivers an equivalent viewing angle in a more comfortable viewing environment (home), at lower cost (rental or even purchase for more than one person), with a greater selection, and without the drive. The only benefit a movie theater offers is earlier access to the content. I have no problem waiting.

"Digital purchase and digital rental accounted for just 2 percent of movie spending in North America in 2011 and slightly less in Western Europe." This is a startling statistic, considering the amount of internet bandwidth that is consumed by video streaming.

"while online piracy remains the biggest barrier worldwide to creating a viable digital movie business" No, realistic pricing and head-in-the-sand attitudes by content providers remain the barrier to creating such a business. The pirates continue to demonstrate that people ARE prepared to pay for content PROVIDED they get value for money. Alas the content providers don't understand this.

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.
