AT&T launches IoT starter kits for AWS and Raspberry Pi

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces AT&T announced two new Internet of Things (IoT) starter kits at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017 in Las Vegas, one for Amazon Web Services (AWS) developers, the other for developers that use Raspberry Pi.It comes six months after the launch of the wireless giant’s first starter kit. The two new kits look to bring more functionality into a single package, to avoid developers searching far and wide for third-party solutions that are compatible.See also: Israel telco giant Bezeq dives into smart city marketAT&T has packed an LTE Cat-1 modem, two antennas, a U.S. and Mexico SIM card with six months of 300MB prepaid data, a USB plug, a microSD card, and an NXP K64F development board into the starter kit.Both kits support PubNub Data stream network and associated APIs, which enable low latency and encrypted two-way messaging, according to a press release.Focusing on the two biggest IoT platformsInstead of making them open to any platform, AT&T has focused on two of the largest IoT platforms for beginners, AWS and Raspberry Pi. This allows developers to quickly build functions without having to learn new code or switch platforms.AT&T is competing heavily with Verizon to make the IoT market a new moneymaker, as the wireless industry starts to slow. Verizon has spent more to burst into the market so far, but AT&T appears to be taking a more collaborative approach, which might win over developers.And those two US-based wireless carriers are not the only ones looking to dominate the space. European communications like Vodafone and Orange, as well as other US firms, like Sprint, all want a piece of the IoT pie in the coming years, though not all have worked on their own devkit offering.

Messi mania halts City of Joy

first_imgDurga puja might be the biggest festival in the City of Joy, but less than a month away from the auspicious occasion, shopping for the festive days – the most important obligation of every Kolkatan — took a backseat on Friday as all roads led only to the Yuba Bharati Kirangan.For once even the shopkeepers weren’t perturbed by the lack of customers, as they wanted to watch 90 minutes of Lionel Messi magic uninterrupted by the demands of inquisitive customers.For the football crazy city, the wait was finally over and having woken up every morning reading different versions in different newspapers as to whether or not the much hyped friendly match between Argentina and Venezuela would take place in Kolkata, they were assured entering the gates of the Yuba Bharati Kirangan that they would indeed get to see the player often compared to greats like Pele and Diego Maradona.And if the streets leading to the stadium were anything to go by, India’s official Men in Blue – the national cricket team – had found tough competitors in the form of the Argentine national football team. It was blue all the way for the fans and for once it wasn’t for Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his men, but for Messi and his boys.For those who didn’t have time to pick up an Argentina jersey, they wore blue t-shirts and tops. And those who didn’t have a blue t-shirt or top in their wardrobe used the Argentina national flag as scarf around their neck. Empty cheeks were a rarity as most had the Argentina flag painted on both sides.advertisementThe gates might have been opened for the fans at 4pm in the afternoon, but fans lined up outside the gates from as early as 1pm in the morning. They wanted to be right there the moment Messi stepped on to the pitch. The continuous drizzle was no deterrent for the determined fans.Bhaskar Bhuiya, coming in from the outskirts of the city, said that such things don’t happen every day and he didn’t want to miss even a second of the biggest match to be ever played on Indian soil.”I left my home at 6 in the morning and reached Howrah station at 10am. I wanted to be here as early as possible as waiting isn’t an issue, but missing even a moment of the biggest football star in the world is,” he told Mail Today.For once, Bhaskar wasn’t the only one who had given up on his lunch and waited for the gates to open. He had lots of friends in the city obsessed with the game of football. The continuous shouts of Messi outside the stadium bore testimony to the fact that the city had indeed come to a full stop as they waited anticipating Messi to pull off his best performance ever in national colours.last_img read more

10 months agoAdama Traore tells Wolves fans: I can go quicker

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Adama Traore tells Wolves fans: I can go quickerby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveWolves winger Adama Traore insists fans are yet to see him in top gear.Adama is so fast that Olympic sprinting champion Darren Campbell – a consultant during Traore’s spell at Middlesbrough – once advised him to slow down, and who is now regularly clocked at 22mph at Wolves. “I’ve always been quick, ever since I was little,” Traore says, having just scorched the earth at Wolves’ Compton training ground. “People are thinking I am running so fast on the pitch, but I think it’s slow. I am deliberately holding back and I could be even quicker.”At Middlesbrough, Darren told me that I didn’t need to run at 100 per cent as I didn’t realise how fast I was. I can beat players at 70 per cent and this will then give me time to think about what to do next.”I want to get people on the edge of their seats, get past players, try to show my skills and pace.” last_img read more

10 months agoChelsea boss Sarri: I won’t argue against our contract policy

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Chelsea boss Sarri: I won’t argue against our contract policyby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea boss Maurizio Sarri says there’s little shifting the club’s contract policy for players over 30 years of age.Sarri pledged to respect the stance of Chelsea’s board when it comes to limiting the length of contracts offered to their older players.When asked if he agrees with that blanket policy, he said: “Oh, it depends. It depends on the single situation I think.”It’s a rule and so we have to respect that, I think.”As you know very well the big problem is the duration of the new contracts. Because, as you know, over 30 years the club offers only one year to renew.”And for a player of 31, it’s a big problem to sign a new contract for only one year. So the problem is only this, I think.” last_img read more

Pediatric society calls for access to free contraceptives for everyone under 25

first_imgOTTAWA — The Canadian Paediatric Society is recommending that everyone under 25 should get confidential access to free birth control.In a position statement released Thursday, the society says access to contraception is a basic human right, and the direct costs of unintended youth pregnancies probably exceed $125 million a year.It says contraception should be funded through provincial, territorial and federal health plans, and that private insurers should cover the full cost of birth control.It also says insurers should be required to protect confidentiality by not reporting contraceptive purchases to the primary policy holder — usually a parent.The society’s paper does not set out a minimum age for access to contraceptives, but a spokesperson pointed to the organization’s “mature minor doctrine,” which refers to rules about treating adolescents who understand the consequences of medical care and can legally consent to it.The paper says unintended pregnancies may derail life plans, especially for young people, and ensuring women can make choices around having children gives them greater control over their bodies and future.“Adolescent parenting is associated with lower lifetime educational achievement, lower income, and increased reliance on social support programs. Apart from the personal costs, unintended pregnancies are a costly burden for Canada’s health and social service systems,” write the paper’s authors, Giuseppina Di Meglio and Elisabeth Yorke.The paper says more than a quarter of youth who do not want to be pregnant do not use contraceptives consistently or at all.And it says because pharmaceutical companies report purchases to the primary policy holder, youths often pay for birth control themselves to preserve confidentiality.In a statement provided to The Canadian Press, Di Meglio says they don’t encourage youth to hide information from their parents, but adds many young people do not feel comfortable and safe speaking with their families about sexual and reproductive health, and the society doesn’t want that to be a barrier to access.“All provinces recognize the legal right of an adolescent to confidential care, provided she or he has the capacity to comprehend and consent to their care (and is over age 14 if living in Quebec). Ensuring confidentiality — when a youth desires it — is critical to providing competent, compassionate care,” she said.The society’s statement notes both the Canadian Medical Association and the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada have proposed that government health-care plans cover the full costs of all contraceptives for all women.The estimated $157-million cost of such a program would far outweigh the $320 million saved in direct medical costs from unintended pregnancies, the pediatric society says.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
