Digital Human Beings: Vision or Risk? Wearable Computing is a new Buz and/or new Technology. The vision of human beings with permanent Computing device is beyond wearing it. The vision is of a an electronic chip implanted in our body i.e. Computing device inside every one or a Digital Human Being. Each Digital Human Being will have an IP address. An Internet of Human Beings beyond The Internet of Things. The device can record and transmit body measurements and control and regulate them. Unlike Wearables, e.g. Apple Watch, which you can get rid of, you are not able to get rid of a chip easily: you will probably need a medical operation in order to take it out from your body. Actually a limited version of that vision is already a reality. For example, the Artificial cardiac pacemaker, which maintains an adequate heart rate. Wearable cardiac pacemakers are available since... (more)

Internet of Things Wearables: New Buzz or New Technology? | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

About 15 years ago I fainted. It was the only time in my life that I fainted. The reasons were probably, blood donation a day before, Work from 7:00 until 19:00 and participation in the the thirty-third day of the Omer period ceremonies of my children (I stood for a long time beside the traditional fire).  No problem found during The Medical Check up, I performed. The Medical Check up included wearing an Holter Monitor recording my heart activity for 24 hours. The Holter was a Wearable computing device, however nobody used the word Wearable. If we exclude the enhanced computing pow... (more)

Will Software AG Survive until 2019? - Revisited

I am not happy to Revisit a Vendor Survival post saying that my prediction that a vendor will not survive was correct (for example, SUN). If a vendor is not a monopoly, I am not happy to find that the probability that it will survive is lower than it was (Apple, HP etc.). Even if it is a monopoly in specific markets and not a monopoly in others, I am not happy to find that its Survival probability is lower than it was (Microsoft).  The reason that I am not happy is that competition is good for my customers: They can buy better products and pay less. This post is out of the ordinary. ... (more)

STKI Summit 2010: The effects of Infrastructure Complexity

Complexity was one of the issues presented by Dr. Jimmy Schwarzkopf's STKI summit Keynote presentation. My Take in a previous post glanced at Complexity and the topic of a comment to my post was Complexity. Pini Cohen's Architecture and Infrastructure EVP & Senior Analyst's presentation in the STKI Summit included many slides on the same topic.  The key point was that In Israel  2009 was a year with record downtime dew to Complexity. Storage was a major cause for not good enough service due to under staffing. According to Pini's presentation the complexity is driven by three factors: ... (more)
