I never learned that as an acronym -- I learned the mnemonic phrase, of course :-)
When I was teaching undergrads, I once drew a circuit with a capacitor I labeled "FBC". I told them if they didn't know what it stood for, to "ask around". Got a good chuckle from the audience.

Fortunately, we have now our own day!
When I was at the Uni, my flat-mates and me build a wifi map with the different keys of the neighboring networks that were available in each room of the apartment.
P.S. I wonder what the APP crew would answer to this geek-test...
Don't do yourself down Duane. YOU'RE in the light. The rest of the world is in darkness....
I also didn't like the LOTR movies, for much the same reasons. Why mess with a good story?
And isn't it the SillmarilliOn? (Well who started being picky... :-)
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.
