ARRGGGHHHH! Well, at least I'm going in for an eye exam next week; guess it's time for new glasses -- using up what's left of last year's FSA. I'll blame it on using my normal progressive lenses, not the "room distance" progressives I got for CRT use, whose frame came unsoldered. At least the frames will be replace under warranty just in time for new lenses.
Actually, your post also shows an itty-bitty X-Box on my browser.
I'm lucky I can get to Flickr; they used to block it here. It's weird what they block here -- they recently let me to a page on the Fighting 69th (Infantry), but blocked another page on the same web site. Some innocuous web pages sound like double-entendres.
It's only recently that we've gotten access to YouTube. Now I can listen to some old folk music (Tom Rush (Rockport Sunday; Tin Angel and Circle Game by Joni Mitchell); Phil Ochs (Draft Dodger Rag); Peter, Paul, and Mary ... ). I'll have to look for some Stan Rogers while I'm at it; a great Canadian folk singer who was killed in a plane fire, probably caused by a cigarette smoker in the rest room.
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.
