As noted in The Internet of Things in the cloud, Pachube is a cloud-based data-logging service, that works well with network-enabled MCU-based solutions. To test it out I made a simple project that sends data to Pachube at MotionPachube – Pachube. The hardware is really simple: A motion sensor (the white dome) is connected to Read more about Netduino: Motion Sensor + Pachube[…]
It’s iPad or nothing, survey says – Wireless – CNET News Advice to tablet providers (except Apple): Find success elsewhere. Personally I would rather spend $x on a laptop than pay the same price for a tablet, but that’s me.
It’s possible to connect up to 12 small servos (those you find in model air planes etc), to a standard Arduino board, for controlling robots, toys, appliances etc (combining this with the previous IR remote project comes to mind). To be able to power so many servos a separate power supply would be needed. I Read more about Arduino: Servo control[…]
I mentioned in a previous post about Netduino, that a constant risk with playing around with Netduino (and Arduino) is that it becomes a time-waster, as it’s so much fun to work with, and it’s so easy to test ideas, but it’s a great learning tool for MCU programming and new types of sensors and Read more about Arduino: MIDI Remote[…]
Should government organizations ban or disrupt social networking and communications- – Broadband No, of course not. Next question…
Pic- iPad Copycats Are Everywhere The notion of what a tablet is (or at least how it looks) has changed in a rather hilarious way: From lots of buttons and attempts at differentiating design, to no buttons and no design.
WebOS is (probably) lost after HP’s decision to drop it, but they also intend to sell their PC division, so at the end of the day HP will not make any devices anymore and instead compete head-on with e.g. IBM. Also results from Dell indicate that the PC business is not what it used to Read more about HP leaves the gizmo industry[…]
HP drops a bomb on Palm and webOS – RCR Wireless News “Unless HP can find a manufacturer to license webOS … the platform is effectively dead.”
Is Google+ starting to get on Facebook’s nerves- — Tech News and Analysis “Google+ is everything Google’s other social efforts weren’t” This is a key point. Wave, Buzz, Jaiku etc have all failed miserably and partly surprisingly, so Google+ is Google’s comeback. Google truly needs this.
Two-thirds of in-app game buys have fleeting value “Games that offer these consumable goods make a lot of money for developers, and they are “the best ROI” for game developers, according to Flurry.” “For developers looking for the best investment, look no further than free games that offer virtual goods via in-app currency, according to Read more about Follow the money: In-app purchases in mobile games[…]
