I "luv" reading your articles. They bring pleasure here in this presumably ones and zeros World! But couldn't you upload images of your books, for us to see what kind of books you have in your Pleasure Dome? I could do the same and so we all could have a look at, what each others are reading or have been reading. This was just a thought, but carry on with what you do :-)
There's certainly a little tear rolling down my cheek. I think the owners just want to retire, and there simply isn't enough business to make it attractive enough to stay. I'm going to email them to tell them Rick and I are coming down, so to get theit best stuff out :-)
@Max - "Mock Electronics is closing down in the New Year". That sounds like very sad news. Don'cha hate it when you just discover somewhere like that and they go and close down? If I was you I'd be heartbroken..... why is this happening, do you know? It sounded like they had lots of tasty stuff and there are a few guys like you (and Rick) around to patronise them? I wish I was not so far away, I'd come and help relieve them of some stuff too....
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.
