UPDATE: I communicated our dissattisfactionwith those who don the undergarments of authority and stride the corridors of power -- they responded as follows:

Max, please get back to everyone and tell them it's a bug, not a plan. The ad server has gone nuts.. notice the ads are from EDN!

@danielmec: Have you looked at the AdBlock Plus plugin for FireFox & Chromium?

No, but I will do so immediately

Thanks for the tip. I installed the Adblock Plus for Opera and gone is that annoying pop-up ad!

I suggest Max' bosses do a good read of the Adblock Plus web-site

@Max: "  It's got so I don't even notice it -- I just click "Skip" without looking"

The first thing I got before I could read your reply was an ad :)

Luckily I can opt-out and decide not to come back, unless I have to.

Somebody suggested using an ad-blocker. Now I don't mind seeing ads next to the 'content of interest' and sometimes they are worth clicking. But this 'interjecting' of the ad that you have to click out of are a violation of marketing rules: Don't upset the customer. Now this customer is pissed off :) I have seen this 'Linear Technology' ad about 20 (twenty!) times today and my subconsious (evil) mind starts blaming them as well :) 

As soon as I click 'Post' I will get served one more :)

Again nothing personal, but unfortunately you are the one in the trenches.

Have you looked at the AdBlock Plus plugin for FireFox & Chromium? It eliminates the force-feeding of the 20 second ad, and many other annoyances.

@Josyb: What are you (your bosses) thinking?

   Don't blame me -- I'm with you on this one.

   It's got so I don't even notice it -- I just click "Skip" without looking

   But I will pass on your comments to those who stride the corridors of power.

 

As you Anglicans say: Life's too short.

    I sometimes say something else if I do notice the ads :-)

@Max:

Another serious issue: everytime I click on a link I get force-fed an advertisement. Every click! You can click it away or wait for 20 seconds. I can live with an ad now and then, and they may even be useful, but not every click. What are you (your bosses) thinking?

As you Anglicans say: Life's too short.

@Max: "Have I ever let you down before?"

That's a dangerous question! :)

Luckily I did't address my vow to you personally, so I can stay silent.

@Josyb: I make a vow to only resume posting if the APP-content gets salvaged.

Have I ever let you down before?

@William: Hoping to also see all the APP content transfered over.

Me too -- I just set the ball rolling on that...

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.
