Most business problems require common sense rather than legal reference. They require good judgment and honesty of purpose rather than reference to the courts. — Edward N. Hurley


Baidu DuBike Unveiled, Features Smart Health, Navigation

Baidu has unveiled the DuBike, its smart bike that will debut om China in 2015. The new smart bike is packed with health and navigation features and has additional security to stop theft.

Baidu went for a classic mountain bike design. There are no obviously noticeable sensors on the bike, apart from at the front where Baidu has included an LED navigation system.

There are several sensors on the DuBike to track health and fitness. Baidu's own apps and third party apps should be able to connect with the DuBike and take performance,


analysis and feedback to the next level, especially for people who are trying to lose weight or get fit on a bike.

The DuBike will offer tracking, allowing users to show the location of the thief and get it back.

Baidu will reportedly launch the DuBike in China by the end of the year.

The IoT will fail if security has no context

The IoT requires a new way of thinking and acting, one that will protect a business and help it grow.  To ensure security in the era of IoT, I'd recommend organizations consider the following:

Think security: IT needs to authenticate customers outside the firewall.

Think ecosystem: Trying to duct-tape security architecture together or protect access on a device-by-device basis is not going to work effectively—or even at all.

Think flexibility: Open source gives IT a platform it can build on and


customize, while open standards offer the flexibility to adapt to future needs in a very standardized manner.

Think monetization: Because organizations collect all users' behaviours, businesses now have a platform they can leverage to better understand and serve the needs of their customers and to provide up-sell opportunities that generate new revenue streams.

The Astronaut Pen During the heat of the space race in the 1960s, the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration decided it needed a ball point pen to write in the zero gravity confines of its space capsules.

After considerable research and development, the Astronaut Pen was developed at a cost of approximately $1 million U.S. The pen worked and  also enjoyed some modest success as


a novelty item back here on earth.
The Soviet Union, faced with the same problem, used a pencil.
