Steve Jobs Dies

Apple announced today that Steve Jobs has died.  Their website says:

“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.”

As one who has spent time in both engineering and marketing in the electronics industry, I feel that Jobs had an uncanny brilliance in bridging the gap between technology and humanity. I believe he truly changed the world – in a dramatic way – particularly for those of us with a passion for engineering and technology.  

May he, in his absence, continue to inspire and motivate us.

Condolences to all at Apple from all of us here at EE Journal.

How Wi-SUN FAN can improve connected infrastructures

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Smart cities have the potential to better people’s lives by bridging the gap between the connected consumer and a connected infrastructure. Imagine a world where you save time getting to your flight because an app on your phone lets you know of an open spot on level 4, or if traffic lights could more dynamically control traffic flow to ease commutes. Connectivity is a key part of making this a reality. Learn why you should consider Wi-SUN field area network (FAN) for your connected product.
