Amazon Bees and Amazon Beehive

Posted on

Hey Amazon, why Amazon Snowball is not elastic too? Yes you can scale it up, but you are never able to scale it down too. It might be just me but 100 TB seems very large for most of IoT devices. This looks to me like a waste of resources and well, too much of […]

Recycling Plastic and 3D Printing

Posted on

I’ve been thinking of this idea for a while, debating to post it or to actually build a proof of concept and a startup around it. Posting the idea won this time, well, because I realize I couldn’t do this all by myself, a startup would require too much time and I’m not sure yet […]

Narrowband IoT in Airports

Internet of things (IoT) for all of them

Posted on

I’m wondering why it takes so long for Internet of Things (IoT) to be a pert of our day by day life. Yes, I’m currently able to control many things from my home with my mobile phone, some of them even remotely over the internet, but still, it doesn’t feel like a strong ‘need’, a […]

I love my Chromecast little stick and I tend to use it even for Smart TVs. It’s easy to command and I can easily play my favorite youtube videos or youtube playlists. I also love about it that it defaults (when nothing is streamed to it) to a nice app that simply shows beautiful nice […]

The only thing I don’t like about it it’s formatting the Micro […]
