IoT - In Search of the Killer Applications.

Do you think applications below will be able to spur the growth of IoT Apps? Will these be the killer apps people are waiting for?

  • Product packing will talk to supply chains, which will talk to manufacturers, which will talk to suppliers to optimize production.
  • Cars will talk to other cars, which will talk to streets, which will talk to traffic lights to optimize traffic flow.
  • A pill will talk to your phone, which will talk to your electronic health record, which will talk to your doctor to ensure you have the best health care possible.
Most of the times, people don't know what they really want until someone shows them what it can do. The same goes to IoT apps. Nobody today can really imagine how the apps will look like and whether it can be useful to them or not. The same question when Apple launched its first smartphone using only a single button and no physical keyboard - depending mainly on the touch-sensitive screen. Can you see how it revolutionise the smartphones industry?

Apple 's AirDrop Using Wi-Fi Direct - Which Macs Supports Wi-Fi Direct?

Most popular Wi-Fi chipsets—including some that Apple has used for years—support Wi-Fi Direct. But even though Apple and Microsoft sit on the board of the Wi-Fi Alliance, which developed the underlying technical standards and certification regime, support in operating systems has been lacking. You can’t find it in Windows 7 or Lion, nor in any mobile operating system. For AirDrop, Apple is using just a subset of Wi-Fi Direct’s features; strictly speaking, AirDrop isn’t actually compatible with the standard.

Apple began to include compatible Wi-Fi chips in some of its Macs three years ago; but as recently as a year ago, some Mac models still didn’t have them. Unless your Mac has the correct Atheros or Broadcom chip, you can’t use AirDrop. Apple’s AirDrop troubleshooting page lists the Macs that support the technology:
  • MacBook Pro (Late 2008 or newer, but not 17-inch Late 2008)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2010 or newer)
  • MacBook (Late 2008 or newer, but not white MacBook Late 2008)
  • iMac (Early 2009 or newer)
  • Mac Mini (Mid 2010 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2009 with AirPort Extreme card, or Mid 2010)

Wi-Fi Direct™: Connect with the possibilities

  • Could this be the start of Internet of Things (IoT) era?
  • Is this part of the Mobile Opportunistic Network where we do not depend the infrastructure to connect devices?
  • See the possibilities of Wi-Fi Direct as one of the technology that brings the Concept of Mobile Opportunistic Networks to live.
