NO RATINGS
Thanks, Frank. After having sat at home for 48 hours, I told myself, "OK, time to get out and explore." No sane reporter should sit in front of a computer for more then two days! So I picked up my camera, walked all the way to NYC, talked to a few people in Lower Manhattan including police officers, surprised to find that even a hotel lobby had no lights. With no traffic lights, no traffic, it was really a quiet Manhattan today. And people were kind. The only problem I had was I couldn't find a bathroom. (Even a well-known big hotel wouldn't let me use their bathroom because I am NOT their guest.) I ended up at a coner deli run by a Korean guy. His whole store was dark, and I am not certain if he was open for business. But he gave me his flash light and let me use his bathroom. Whew!

Wow Junko, what a welcome home! I'm glad to hear you and the rest of the EE Times staff are ok. I have several friends in NJ that are still without power, but have been in touch with another friend there who is running the basics like his refrigerator with a generator. I was shocked he was able to make a cell phone call, but that's about it. His cable TV & wired internet are out and the cellular network is too clogged to handle much data. So voice & text is it for now. Best wishes to all affected and I hope they get the power -- and the subways -- back up & running soon.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

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.
