@grover1 My apologies! I'm sorry that we've left the impression that we do not honor our prize commitments for eligible contestents! Can you please email me at email@example.com so I can get your information and make good on the contest and then you can say nice things about us? Thanks! :-)

You'd love that, wouldn't you? At least you have failth that I will win :-)
> @David: What have you got against us Aussies and other infidels? > Oooh -- it's not fair to present such a tempting target -- now I'm having to physically restrain myself and drag myself away from the keyboard (LOL)
It's not like you to be such a shrinking violet, Max......
@Grover - I remember your story and I also entered that comp. I have been paid for a couple of things I've done for EELife and had no problems with any of them, though they did take time......so chase it up some more (ask Karen, she's the boss!)
hey dude don't worry about it - EE have a bad record on Halloween competition pay outs. I entered one back in 2010, won it, http://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=30&doc_id=1284683 got an email from a nice young lady asking where the $500 prize cheque should be sent to, I replied, then guess what - nothing arrived! I tried emailing back but never had any replies - so in the end I just gave up demanding my filthy lucre. *sigh* Maybe Max le Magnifico can help me out ?
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.
