NO RATINGS
The Internet-of-Things threatens to dwarf the Internet-of-People, as machine-to-machine interactions dominate even our personal spaces. Right now I am writing this comment on my iPad-3 while viewing the ballgame on my iPad-2 and keeping track of my upcoming appointments on my smartphone--all of which are linked together via WiFi and up to the cloud for auto-synchronization with Ethernet to my broadband cable modem. Already the bandwidth used by my keystrokes dwarfs the bandwidth used my machines all talking to each other and the cloud. In the future, nearly everything electronic will have an IP address, thanks to chips sets that are already poised to dip below $1, and with IPv6 in place, there is plenty of space avialable for more. One pet peeve of mine that I hope will be cured by the Internet of things is weather prediction. With realtime sensor network input from around the globe combined with cloud-based analytics running on cluster supercomputers, can't we at least get tomorrow's weather right! But perhaps Aristotle said it best: Hope is a waking daydream.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
