For the past so many years, we ve been told that the age of IoT would emerge and revolutionise the planet very soon.Though, the concept of IoT has been around for the past so many decades, we haven t yet seen it properly materialise.Those who ve seen Back To The Future 2, or have read comics of Iron Man will understand that the concept was conceived a long time ago and was predicted to happen somewhere in the middle of this decade.However, gadgets like Smartphones and smart watches are the only pieces of technology we have today which can, technically, fit under the IoT umbrella.We d imagined IoT to be something like a couple of devices communicating with one another.And as you stroll out to the kitchen, rubbing your eyes, you find your coffee already hot and ready for you to drink.

Philip Morris International is the world s largest global tobacco company, and it has been facing growing business hurdles.Social attitudes toward smoking have changed greatly in the past few decades, and regulators are increasingly rolling out new rules that make life harder for tobacco companies and smokers alike.The UK recently implemented new rules regarding cigarette marketing that affect things like cigarette packaging colors.A legal appeal attempted to reverse these rules, but as noted by Reuters, the effort was not successful.Other rulings around the world have restricted where tobacco can be used and bought, how it can be marketed, and more.Tobacco companies are increasingly looking for ways to stay alive in the brave new mostly-non-smoking world, and that includes electronic gadgets.

Senator Ted Cruz, long believed to be a human man, will hold Congressional hearings about artificial intelligence tomorrow.And while we've yet to confirm or deny the rumours that Ted Cruz is trying to build his own Westworld-style amusement park, we re sure everything is fine.The hearings are titled The Dawn of Artificial Intelligence, and will include testimony from representatives of Microsoft, Carnegie Mellon University, and NASA, among others.The majority of speakers listed for tomorrow seem pretty optimistic about the future of AI, including Dr. Eric Horvitz of Microsoft.There have been concerns about the long-term prospect that we lose control of certain kinds of intelligences, Dr. Horvitz told the BBC last year.I fundamentally don t think that s going to happen.

The separation of national infrastructure between companies that provide the assets and the maintenance of those assets has long been a separation in other industries such as Energy, Gas, Water and Transport Airports that use subcontractors to heavily support the complex and expanding land and day to day operations.The Issue with BT ownership of its Openreach subsidiary that owns the pipes and telephone cables that connect nearly all businesses and homes in the United Kingdom to the national broadband and telephone network has long been an issue for its competitors TalkTalk, Sky and Vodafone who have to use this network.The BT Group argue they are investing in this critical national infrastructure that will power the Digital economy for all industries yet questions over how to build this faster and with more coverage in the national has been a constant battle with the idea that the Internet of Things and super fast broadband towards 5G and other types of networks may be better delivered and served with having multiple large scale companies in a more devolved network.This requires huge investment to build fiber networks but also a wiliness to experiment and develop a full range of services that digitize and enable multiple networks and providers to give not just access but also high performing data and network speeds.Separating the BT and Openreach monopoly will in my view help this move towards a faster network of providers that is not driven at the speed of one large operator priorities.This has counter arguments of reliability and avoiding vested interests in zoning in on specific cities and regions for preference treatment.

Trafiksäkerhetsverket i USA kommer snart publicera riktlinjer för hur mobiltillverkare kan ta fram ett förarläge som ska förhindra distraherande användning.Mobilanvändande ligger idag bakom många bilolyckor, då folk gör mycket mer än att bara prata i telefon.I Storbritannien dömdes nyligen en lastbilschaufför till många års fängelse för extrem vårdslöshet i trafik och vållande till annans död då han plöjde in i en stillastående personbil efter att ha bläddrat genom sin spellista i mobilen och inte uppmärksammat att trafiken framför stod stilla.Det här är något trafiksäkerhetsmyndigheter runt om i världen brottas med, och den amerikanska myndigheten National Highway Traffic Safety Administration kommer idag publicera nya riktlinjer som ber mobiltillverkare som Samsung och Apple att utveckla ett förarläge , skriver New York Times.Förarläget ska motsvara flygplansläget men istället begränsa användningen så att den som kör bil inte kan frestas att läsa meddelanden, kolla Facebook eller bläddra i musik.De stora mobiltillverkare har redan satsningar på att göra det enklare och säkrare att använda mobilen i bilen: Apple Carplay och Android Auto.

US president-elect Donald Trump has confirmed that the US will pull out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership TPP —a trade deal involving 12 Pacific rim nations—"on day one" of his presidency.Trump, in a YouTube video outlining plans for his first 100 days in office, said: "I'm going to issue our notification of intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a potential disaster for our country."He added: "Instead, we will negotiate fair, bilateral trade deals that bring jobs and industry back on to American shores."An emphasis on bilateral trade deals may call into question both the Trade in Services Agreement TISA , involving dozens of nations, and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership TTIP .Although the latter is between the US and the European Union, the complex political structure of the EU means that effectively 28 nations are involved and can influence the outcome of the deal.The UK government will doubtless welcome this shift to bilateral trade deals, but one reason why Trump may view them favourably is because it places the US in the driving seat as the larger player.

Researchers at Stanford University have devised a way to allow for communication that sounds like something out of a science fiction film.The team working on the project figured out how to send messages using household chemicals.Researcher Nariman Farsad began working on the project and it is an area of study that few in the world are investigating at this time.The first system that Farsad devised was able to send messages using vodka.The latest system that the scientist is working on us pulses of glass cleaner and vinegar to send messages and is faster than the original version.Rather than using normal binary code of on and off to send messages, the system the scientist have created substitutes pulses of an acid in the form of vinegar and a base in the form of the glass cleaner for the binary.

Microsoft Office is now 26 and its impact on the IT and business worlds has been immeasurableMicrosoft Office has officially reached the grand old age of 26, after its first iteration called Office for Windows or Office 1.0 was released on 19 November 1990.Released into the world of 286 and 386-based PCs running Windows 2.0, it rapidly became the de-facto piece of software that everyone ended up installing on their computer.Indeed, in 2012 it was reported that Office was used by more than a billion people worldwide, a staggering achievement for piece of commercial software.It should be noted that Microsoft co founder Bill Gates had initially announced the software back in August 1988, and it is true that very early versions of the software first appeared as separate programs for MS-DOS-based computers.Another point to note is these DOS-based PCs did not have a mouse remember, there was no GUI , and input was entirely keyboard driven.

Enlarge / The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.Andrew CunninghamIf you've been having touchscreen problems with your iPhone 6 Plus, Apple has a fix for you if you're willing to pay for it.The "iPhone 6 Plus Multi-Touch Repair Program" is for phones that are either having trouble registering touchscreen input or that are have flickering displays as a result of "being dropped multiple times on a hard surface and then incurring further stress on the device."Unlike past iPhone repair programs—a list which includes the power button and battery in the iPhone 5 and the camera in the iPhone 6 Plus—Apple is charging a $149 service fee to replace iPhones affected by the problem.If you have previously paid for a repair related to these problems, Apple says that you can contact the company to be reimbursed for whatever you paid beyond $149.Based on Apple's description of the problem, it sounds like this could be a fix for a problem that iFixit and independent iPhone repair shops brought to light a few months ago.
