Journalism is taking several exciting new turns with mobile technology offering updates from your pocket. Instead of waiting for the New York Times to land at your doorstep each morning, you can get fine-tuned news updates in real-time. Mobile apps let us customize alerts to the topics and regions we care about most. Before you head over to the app store to download all of your favorite newspapers, however, consider one of these handy apps that offer all of your sources in one easy to manage program.

Feedly: First Refuge for Google Reader Expats

Google users across the web cried out in despair at the discontinuation of beloved RSS-based Google Reader. Not only was it an intuitive and comprehensive aggregator for all of your favorite RSS feeds, but it also integrated nicely with other Google products. Integration is more and more common for Google users, so it came as a blow to news readers to learn they would have to find a third-party app.

Feedly provided the ideal transition app for former Google Reader users. It quietly imports all of your saved RSS feeds and allows you to categorize them under your own custom labels. The interface is attractive and even offers different layouts so those with different visual styles can read in comfort. The primary advantage of an RSS reader is that you can import more than just news: blogs, entertainment, and other websites are all fair game.

Flipboard: The Mobile Native

Flipboard is a special news app, created specifically for mobile use. Users can "flip" through its gesture-based interface to read quick digests of their favorite stories. Those with the newest smartphones will appreciate a news reader made for the technology right at their fingertips. Flipboard is a great choice for those who want to support small news and niche content providers; its curation brings lesser-known news and magazine content to the reader's attention.

Pocket: The Ultimate Tool for Offline Reading

"It was a dark and stormy night, and suddenly the power went out." It's your worst nightmare – no Internet access for an entire evening! Even though our grandparents like to boast about a "simpler time" before the Internet, the truth is that all of us rely on online access now.

Although Pocket does not have live news updates, it is an essential app for those of us who are so connected we don't know what to do without wireless access. Pocket lets you save articles and web pages for later and saves them in a readable format that you can reach while offline.

NPR: Get Your Regional Fix

National Public Radio is a news favorite, covering national and world news as well as local broadcasts depending on where you tune in. The mobile NPR app lets you listen to broadcasts from all over the country, so you can check in on a breaking story back home even while you are out of town. The interface is professional and comparable to any major news network apps, with quick and easy digests. You can even save your favorite talk shows as playlists to stream whenever you like.

LinkedIn Pulse: News for the Visual Learner

Some of us read page after page of text, some of us listen to broadcasts, and some of us firmly believe "a picture is worth a thousand words." Pulse is a graphic-intensive news reader for those who prefer images when scanning headlines. This app is perfect for those who only follow a few feeds at a time. It pulls both the entire article and all photographs from the original source's media library, so you can see all the action right on your screen.

There is no reason not to stay informed when smartphone users really do have the world at their fingertips. You can flip through headlines on the go or sit back with a cup of coffee and read a lengthy editorial. Don't overload your internal memory with five different newspaper apps when all you need is the one news reader that is perfect for you. Parts Search

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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
