Samsung Buys Kickstarter-Funded Internet of Things Startup For $200MM
I haven't heard of this product before, but it looks very interesting.
I was looking at a few months ago what appears to be similar - a ISY994i to control Insteon automation products. All I want is something that has an API or is somewhat open ended so I can program my own stuff for it. ISY994i has it's limitations, but supports a lot of hardware (sensors, etc).
Sooo... does this mean Samsung will lock it down so it can only be accessed through it's own app on a Samsung phone or through a Samsung TV or, god forbid, their smart watch (or w/e)? I would much more like it if Google bought it (although I know the advertising/privacy concerns) - at least it would most likely be more open.
I'm waiting to hear how Samsung will essentially kill it off for people like me or will they make it better??
Chinese Researchers' 'Terror Cam' Could Scan Crowds, Looking for Stress
Just thinking it through - if "terrorists" knew this stuff was in use, couldnt they train themselves to calm down and go into a low stress pre-murder state? I gotta imagine if you were serious about this, you would buy a similiar test system and run through it enough to see how to act to not be detected.
Is this an accurate thought? Or would you always be flagged before a murderous rampage? Thinking false negative.
Renewable Energy Saves Fortune 100 Companies $1.1B Annually
So if I spend 80k on a new car to save 1k a year in energy costs, is this a win too? Is this a similar thing? I don't see the numbers on capital expenditure to achieve these savings. Usually when I see something like that ommitted, its to intentionaly hide something and to push some agenda or propaganda.
I expect to retire ...
