Why The Internet Of Things Is Still Roadblocked

Why The Internet Of Things Is Still Roadblocked | Future of Cloud Computing and IoT | Scoop.it
Its potential is huge; so are the obstacles.

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 29, 3:55 PM

IDTechEx outlines in its report

1. The Internet is still not available in many areas of the world. While companies like Google are working hard to change this with its balloon-powered Internet and other low-power, low-cost ways to spread the Internet, success has been spotty to date.

2. There aren't many large potential customers. While there are roughly 10 billion sensors deployed today for natural resources, production lines, electricity grids, logistics networks, recycling, homes, offices, stores and vehicles, many are not connected to the Internet or even parts of a network. The investments needed to complete these connections won't materialize until the revenue potential is clear.  Some companies like Bosch understand this and are building services on top of networks of sensors, but most organizations have been slow to embrace the potential of connecting everything.

3. Lack of standards. More than 400 standards already exist, which is tantamount to there being no standards at all. Manufacturers need to be persuaded to build standard communication protocols for the sensors they embed into their products, rather than creating data silos with proprietary protocols.

Related to #2, businesses need to change in ways that make data sharing more appealing than data hoarding. So long as organizations think they need to exclusively build both the things and the services that connect them, the Internet of Things will remain stillborn.

4. Software to be defined. There are many software, system integration and processing issues, like determining what middleware should do and whether to perform analytics in the device or in the network. Related to #3, each sensor type collects and transmits data in a different format, and it's unlikely that any given API hub or integration site will accommodate all sensor data types. Little consensus exists, but we badly need standardized middleware anyway.

5. Security and safety issues. Smart and connected devices systems and other tools can be attacked or deployed to access highly sensitive data, as scholars and others have highlighted. Also, simply flooding the frequencies of wireless networks can paralyze them. An Internet of Things is no good if the things can't talk.

6. Power is a problem. Because large deployments mean the batteries in nodes may not be rechargeable or even replaceable, we'll probably need energy harvesting—in which systems capture and store power from ambient sources like solar or kinetic energy—to power a vast array of lower-power gadgets without batteries.

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 27, 4:58 PM

Why this matters: While Intel is hardly the first company to offer remote mouse software for smartphones and tablets, other apps such as Unified Remote and Mobile Mouse either cost money or are ad-supported. Intel’s solution isn’t as full-featured, but it could be all you need for remotely controlling a PC in your living room or during a presentation. -  A bare-bones app that just works  -  Once paired, the app provides a full keyboard (including arrow keys and a Windows button), along with a trackpad that supports multi-touch gestures such as two-finger scrolling. There’s also a scroll bar on the side of the screen if you’d rather scroll with just a thumb. In a thoughtful touch, the keyboard slides out of the way while using the trackpad in landscape mode, then pops in again when you take your fingers off the screen.   - If you’ve tried other remote mouse apps, you might miss some of their luxuries while using Intel’s version. There are no shortcut buttons for opening programs or managing windows, and no media control buttons either. And because the keyboard is built into the app, you can’t use your phone’s voice dictation capabilities. Intel’s app does just a couple things, but does them well and doesn’t cost a dime.

I'm a huge fan of the old IBM Thinkpad, carted around and dropped more than a few of them, damn near indestructible, can't remember how many times this little black box acted like a Timex, took a licking and kept on ticking.   Now, Lenovo wants to celebrate what it calls “purposeful evolution,” with a laptop that embraces the ThinkPad’s past designs. Dubbed the “ThinkPad Retro” or “T92” we might see the return of the blue Enter key, two ThinkLights, exposed screws, a 7-row keyboard, rubberized paint, and tons of status LEDs. Adding even more nostalgia, the T92 would feature the device logo with the old IBM-style red, green, and blue.

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 24, 12:57 PM

According to Microsoft, preview testers ran the Office for Android phone apps on over 1,900 different phone models in 83 countries, which allowed the company to incorporate their feedback into the versions out today. Testers’ feedback not only helped the company troubleshoot bugs, but Microsoft also made adjustments to the user interface and added features, it says. For instance, the Office for Android phone apps now connect to third-party storage services including Google Drive and Box, and Microsoft implemented usability adjustments to make it easier to navigate commands within the apps.

The release represents yet another move by Microsoft to fully embrace its cross-platform strategy when it comes to its software. Office was once tied largely to Windows PCs, but the company today is working to make sure its flagship productivity suite works anywhere its users are – even on competitors’ OS’s. The strategy seems to be succeeding at putting Office in the hands of a large audience – in April of this year, the company said its iOS and Android downloads combined had topped 100 million.

Lenovo's Ideacentre Stick 300 - a portable gadget works with HDMI-compatible devices. Plug it into the living room flat-screen TV, carry it to the office, or drop it into a suitcase during your next trip.  - "We've looked at the computing needs of travelers, business people and families, and realized that a truly portable and affordable solution would be a significant benefit to users of all kinds," Jun Ouyang, VP and GM of Worldwide Desktop and Visuals at Lenovo, said in a statement.  -  The $129 ($20 less than the Intel version) dongle transforms almost any HDMI-compatible TV or monitor into a functioning Windows-based PC. Just attach a 2.4GHz wireless keyboard and mouse, and you'll be ready to create documents, surf the Web, and update social media.  -  "Imagine transforming the traditional TV in a vacation rental into a small multi-media hub, capable of streaming a movie, video chatting with relatives or editing a work document on the fly. Convert the dusty monitor lurking in a spare bedroom into a Web-enabled homework station, or transform a coveted man-cave into a home cinema."
