When we were first introduced to earbuds, in-ear speakers connected through thin wires to your phone (and earlier portable music devices), they seemed pretty convenient for private entertainment at work, while walking, exercising, doing almost anything. Until we started to realize those long dangly wires weren’t ideal. They… Read More

Innovation in smart homes, smart buildings, smart factories and many other contexts differentiates in sensing, in some cases actuation, implementation certainly (low power for example) and rolling up data to the cloud. It isn’t in the on-board CPU and I doubt any of those entrepreneurs want to create their own Bluetooth or Wi-Fi… Read More

Particularly impressive is that BT already leads cellular and WiFi. This strength is certainly influenced by sales into… Read More
