That sounds interesting. This is perhaps the 2nd time I hear a good omen for Microsoft and its upcoming Windows 8 OS for mobile phones.
Didn’t thought before that this patent’s fight between Apple and Samsung would benefit a 3rd and this being Microsoft.
Your arguments seem to be accurate. Now US operators will want not to buy the Android phones which might infringe Apple’s patents. But, I think the lawsuit involved the physical design also right? So it’s not only Android based phones perhaps but any phone that look very iphone-ish.
But after all this… is Microsoft free of sin? Is the Windows 8 OS free of patent infringement over the iPhone’s GUI?
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.
