Ability is useless unless it's used.  —Robert Half


What opportunities does IoT present?

The huge potential growth, combined with the lack of regulatory intervention, is an opportunity for every player in the IoT value chain.


You can structure your business model innovatively. Intellectual-property protection at the outset is paramount.


You can future-proof your contracts against upcoming regulation.


Liability chain

Liability across the IoT value chain can be complex. You can be smart about recognising and handling these issues head-on in commercial negotiations.

Translating M2M vehicles to M2M animals

A Swiss company named Anemon is working with local dairy farmers to provide a better alternative to knowing when their cows are in heat. Sounds like a strange M2M application, but just hold on.

Anemon’s solution not only measures the cow’s temperature but the cow’s movement. There is an internal device which is easily inserted to take the cow’s temperature and transmit that 


information to a small box on the cow’s bell collar. The temperature and level of movement is transmitted to the farmer’s smartphone to alert him it’s time to breed the cow.  

So what do vehicles have to do with this? I spoke with Kurt Hug, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Anemon. When he was originally approached to help solve this problem he went to his roots in automotive telemetry to develop a solution. Why couldn’t cows with sensors be tracked in the same fashion as a vehicle fleet? You monitor a moving organism, transmit the data via the cloud to a server and take action as a result of that data. Pretty cool.

Set Proper Communication Mode on Your Products

Modules provided by Neoway supports both TCP protocol and UDP protocols. You can set the communication mode of your device based on the type of the server to be connected. 



If the server supports TCP, you must set the communication mode of your device to TCP. Otherwise, the server cannot receive data sent by your device though the module can obtain IP address and log in to the server.


 Quit Smoking: You Won't Gain Weight

If you've finally decided to kick the habit, there's good news: Quitting smoking won't make you gain weight over the long term. Some people pick up 4 or 5 pounds early on, but that's only temporary.

To quit successfully, experts agree, get help and support from your doctor, family, friends, and co-workers. A doctor or mental health professional can help you tailor an approach that best suits you. There are many FDA-approved medications to help people quit smoking.


Combine medication with other quit strategies -- like avoiding your smoking triggers or changing your daily routine -- and you greatly increase your odds of quitting for good.

Another tip:  Try eating more vegetables and less meat -- and swap that coffee (or alcohol) for a glass of milk. Let your taste buds stifle those cravings!


One day in class, the teacher assigned his students to write a composition - If I Am a Manager.
All the students began to write except a boy. The teacher went to him and asked the reason.
"I am waiting for my secretary," was the boy's answer.
"Are we poisonous?" the young snake asked his mother.
"Yes, dear," she replied, "Why do you ask?"
"Cause I've just bitten my tongue!"


Mother: Why  are you jumping up and down?
Tom: I've just taken some medicine and I forgot to shake the bottle.
