I agree with you, this eetimes article is a big disapointment.
The original post, on isuppli's website is more detailed: http://www.isuppli.com/Memory-and-Storage/News/Pages/Video-and-Audio-Storage-RequirementsDriveDoubling-of-Maximum-Hard-Drive-Densities-by-2016.aspx
wow, that was useless. some analyst predicts that people will use more space, therefore that the storage industry will provide it. ee times should be adding at least a little value to the PR from these firms: how will the higher density be achieved? are there any drawbacks (like lower BER especially when scaled by very large disks)?
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.
