"Peak performance"

Here's an old one -- I don't know which wag came up with it: In supercomputer and parallel processing marketing, "peak performance" is "a guarantee from the manufacturer that your application won't run faster than this".

@betajet: If you hit the "off" button, the only thing that turns off is the power LED.

Good One!

You are right -- I'd forgotten about that -- how things have changed

"Instant On"

"Instant On", i.e., always on.  Our product takes 30 seconds to boot, so the only way we can make it look like it turns on instantly is to have it on all the time.  If you hit the "off" button, the only thing that turns off is the power LED.

Old timers here will remember when "portable" meant "product has a really strong built-in handle able to carry the product's weight".  Example: 40-pound "portable" TV.

What about "Solution?"

@Max, you forgot the most overused word in marketing for the last several years: Solution. Nobody sells products or services anymore, the sell Solutions.

So, what's the problem?

@Duane: Optional one year buyer protection plan...

I never take those -- my experiance has been that if the thing is going to break, it will do so one day after the protection plan expired :-)

@Duane: Bob from National TV gives it four stars. - And Bob, from national TV is whom?

It's like the TV adds for cars where everyone wins some type of award from "J D Powers and Associates" ... who the $%^& is J D Powers (is this a real person or a marketing fiction?) and who are his/her associates when they are at home?

@Duane: Customers love it! - We showed it to some guy and he didn't hate it.

That one rings so true :-)

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.
