It is very strange kind of fight this is going on mobile phones can be of square shape, then they will look like same. It is quite fortunate that no one had patented 4-wheels of a car and 2-wheels of a bicycle otherwise the road might look like a gymnastic stadium.
Unfortunately, the jury is meant to live in a cave during the trial and not read the press or view TV covering the trial, so in some cruel twist of justice, Apple might still get through on this nonsense. It will be interesting to see if Apple gain or shed customers after this (and other trials). Initial indications are that iSheep are flocking in big numbers to Samsung or waiting for the next iPhone.
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.
