In case you didn’t see it yet, we published our latest Internet of Things Application Enablement Platform Middleware Market Research Report recently. You can check the key findings from here, after you have recovered from the inevitable awe of witnessing a total of eight upper-case nouns in a row. I’ve understood that I can finally ...

Here’s a development I considered outright ground-breaking: a Calgary-based law firm is using its client’s Fitbit data to back up her personal injury case in court. The point is to prove that the person’s activity levels have been negatively affected by an injury she suffered in an accident four years ago. The used data isn’t ...

 The consumption of mobile telecom services by consumers is no longer proportional to the revenue generated for mobile operators. In many countries, 4G LTE tariff plans have been introduced at the same price points as their 3G tariff plans.

I had the pleasure of finally attending Black Hat this year; the European iteration which took place in Amsterdam on 16-17 October. From my understanding, the event is a much smaller and more reserved version of its Vegas counterpart, and primarily stocked by European-based researchers and attendees; although a few of the speakers had previously ...

Recently, I came across an article that had questionable commentary about WiGig (or 802.11ad), which I have been covering since around 2009.  (I have been covering Wi-Fi since 2003.)  The article is from a journalist I respect.  I look forward to reading this journalists' articles.  The journalist relied on experts ...

GE provided an update on its “Industrial Internet” (I2) push during last week’s Mind + Machines event, which was also recapped in the form of two helpfully informative press releases. You can view them here and here, and in the following I’ll share a few reasonably idle observations. Note that in this context I’ll be using ...

Today, Motorola announced initial roll-out plans for the latest Android OS build 5.0 codenamed Lollipop. 

The first device to get the new Android system software will be Google's Nexus 6, designed by Motorola.  As the name suggests, the new Nexus handset sports a 6" Quad HD display, a 13MP camera with ...
