I'm just happy to see them competing in the marketplace rather than in the courtroom. This can only be good news for consumers.
@AZskibum, I totally agree with you that it will benefit the consumers in the end. Competition will force Apple to reduce the prices of its products because Samsung is offering very good features at minimal cost.
Resolution may not be any problem for the size of the screen. Better color and reduction of glare might actually be a more attractive features. In addition, to extend battery life will likely get a boost of attraction. What would Apple do to further reduce the power consumption?
I agree. Those who are choosing iPad over Samsung aren't going to change their mind because Samsung's tablet has a slightly larger screen and slightly higher resolution. A significantly lower price for Android alternatives is probably one of the larger factors in Apple's descreasing market share in the tablet market, but these tablets are priced similarly to Apple's.
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.
