Microsoft's Azure Moves into Internet of Things Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform is expanding into the Internet of Things with the IoT Suite, a convergence and expansion of Azure’s existing offerings. Some of its components have already been released, but will all be brought together under the Azure IoT suite name when it is released later this year. These services are designed for businesses transitioning into the digital space, including those incorporating remote monitoring, asset management, and predictive maintenance. The Azure Intelligence Systems Service was previewed in April 2014, but Azure’s IoT Suite will expand on its capabilities. It will also incorporate Azure Stream Analytics, currently in preview, which monitors real time data from devices in order to help businesses predict what trends might be affecting their industry next, as well as to automate services or responses.

Patent US20140258276 - Social annotations for enhanced search results - Google Patents The Internet provides access to a wide variety of resources, such as image files, audio files, video files, and web pages. A search system can identify resources in response to queries submitted by users and provide information about the resources in a manner that is useful to the users. The users then navigate through (e.g., click on) the search results to acquire information of interest to the users. Users of search systems are often searching for information regarding a specific entity. For example, users may want to learn about a singer that they just heard on the radio.

Patent US20140040626 - Anonymization and reattribution framework for offline identifiers - Google Patents Aspects of the present application relate generally to the field of processing data associated with a user. More specifically, certain implementations of the present disclosure relate to anonymization and reattribution framework for offline identifiers. The expansion of unique identifiers (e.g., barcodes, quick response (QR) codes, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, near field communication (NFC) proximity sensors, GPS units) into the offline space means users will be at risk of significant privacy harm if such identifiers are stolen and then traced back to the respective users. As users have acquired more offline devices with identifiers (e.g., watches with NFC chips, clothing apparel with unique barcodes or QR codes, RFID tags on bicycles, etc.), they have lost the ability to manage offline analytics data related to usage of the offline device. The present disclosure relates to a method and system for an anonymization and reattribution framework for offline identifiers.

Wireless electricity products spark a new industry January 15, 2009 The promise of wireless electricity has been around for over 100 years. Nikola Tesla spent much of his productive life experimenting with wireless power, the familiar Tesla coils is actually a resonant wireless power transmitter, and the dream of wireless power was also his undoing when his Wardenclyffe project was terminated in 1904. Over the following decades very little research has been conducted with the prominent exception of Bill Brown who’s experiments in microwave wireless power transmission culminated in a successful demonstration in 1975 by transmitting 30kw over 1 mile at 82.5% efficiency at the Goldstone Deep Space Communication Complex. View all Wireless power research was dormant again unit 2007 when an MIT scientist demonstrated wireless powering of a 60W light bulb with 40% efficiency at a 2m (7ft) distance using two 60cm-diameter coils.
