Like so much of the application of science and technology We have made these communication systems because we could do it and it created a market - from GM crops, nuclear bombs to genetic engineering in the garden shed but nobody asked the question at to whether, weighing up the benefits for the good of humanity ,we should. We have laws to stop Jo public from manufacturing explosives in their garden shed - but it is perfectly legal for them to experiment with genetic engineering!! - crazy eh? What Eistien is warning us us is that without using respect for and real thought, our discoveries may very well become our downfall.

The ones that really irritate me are the ones who continuously check their cellphone in the movie theater to see if they have any messages. It's like having flashbulbs go off all around you while you're trying to enjoy the movie. Why are they even there?

Rather than texting, it's more likely they are Facebooking. Yes, that's an actual verb now :)

I agree -- it embarrasses me to be listening to someone else's conversation -- and if someone calls me I take the call outside the room

When I was coaching Pee Wee Ice hockey in the 2009 season in Northern Arizona we had an idiot spectator texting during the entire game, so much that he missed a stray shot off the glass and into the stands. Einstein was correct in this instance, the puck made a glancing blow to what we later found out to be a non used and non vital part of his body, his head!!! The individual stood up and looked around to see what he missed after all the laughing and cheering, Hockey fans can truly be mean BTW, and he looked around as if nothing happened and went back to texting.

Max, fully automated cars can't get here fast enough and protect us from drivers like the young lady texting while driving. God please do not let that car cross my path! However, I rather see people texting on the tables near by than the annoying loud mouth any day.

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.
