Research firm NPD estimates that tablets will out-ship notebooks by 2016 due to one factor alone the consumer's desire for more portability.......

I actually have no problem believing this, because the tablet, a la iPad or Kindle Fire, is more of a consumer toy. Whereas the notebook is a PC, more of a real productivity tool. So why wouldn't a consumer toy outpace the sales of a more flexible and more useful device like a PC?
Since these are significantly different products, the comparison seems wrong. But on the other hand, as others have noted, new devices like the Microsoft Surface would blur the lines.
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.
