Submitted by kenekaplan
kenekaplan (2426100) writes "Business managers dictating device decisions, flood of tablets force rethinking of enterprise IT say analysts. Spending on information technology is projected to decline overall this year, but tablet buyers are forecast to buck that trend and drop $23 billion more on the devices than last year. Many of those tablets will inevitably find their way into organizations on a BYOD basis, further eroding enterprise IT control over employee devices."

Researchers Are Developing Ad Hoc Networks For Car-To-Car Data Exchange 126

Posted by Soulskill
from the hey-buddy-your-blinker-is-on dept.
Lucas123 writes "Researchers are developing machine-to-machine (M2M) communication technology that allows cars to exchange data with each other, enabling vehicles to know what the cars all around them are doing, and perhaps, where they're going. Intel is working with National Taiwan University on M2M connectivity, an idea came from caravanning — an available, but-not-yet-deployed technology that uses direct line of site infrared (IR) and a range finder in order to automatically adjust the speed of cars so they can travel at a measured distance from each other. In other words, they're electronically tethered to one another. Now, imagine a group of cars traveling down the road together as an ad hoc network, each one aware of the location, any sudden actions or even the travel route of other vehicles as uploaded to the cloud from a GPS device. 'We're even imagining in the future cars would be able to ask other cars, "Hey, can I cut into your lane?" Then the other car would let you in,' said Jennifer Healey, a research scientist with Intel."

You know you've landed gear-up when it takes full power to taxi.
