Microsoft has already tested the turbulent waters by testing an improving its Windows OS for mobiles. Though the bad time for Nokia is far from over, it will be interesting to see whether Nokia will keep the smartphone lines running Android OS.
The seeds of this acqisitions were sow in early 2011 when Elop announced that Nokia with partnership with Microsoft and will ship only Windows phones. That was one masterstroke of Ballmer that Finnish board could not understand. This is victory of that masterstroke.
Congrats to Microsoft. Now they have to run this business and provide more competition in the industry. We are turning into utilities like system in the industry with Android and iOS. Hope Windows can crack that party. It will be hard but they need to try.
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.
