The Internet of Things Will Keep Demand for Standalone Bluetooth ICs Strong, According to ABI Research
by BWW News Desk - Jul 23, 2014

Handsets – smartphones and feature phones – are a dominant part of the Bluetooth chipset market and will remain so, but to a lesser degree throughout the forecast period. “Handsets comprised 62% of the market for Bluetooth ICs in 2013 and this will fall to 53% in 2019,” added Solis. This is a big part of the reason why over 70% of Bluetooth ICs will be Smart Ready with a much smaller portion being Smart. These trends play into the hands of dominant vendors like Broadcom and Qualcomm, but still leave Plenty of room for smaller Bluetooth chipset vendors. “The IoT will provide additional growth opportunities for all vendors, but while the larger vendors tend to work with high volume customers and products, it is the smaller vendors that will be able to take advantage of the long tail of opportunities.” (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Jul 22, 2014

Earlier this year, an American Airlines Bombardier CRJ-200 was flying at 2,300 feet in the air and about 5 miles away from its Tallahassee Regional Airport destination when an unmanned, remote-controlled aircraft flew so close to the plane that the pilot was quoted as saying he was sure he had collided with the Unmanned Aircraft System (Reuters, http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/05/09/us-american-airline-drone-idUSBREA480UU20140509).

To enrich its immersion in "Schubert and His World," Bard SummerScape 2014 presents Euryanthe (1823) by Carl Maria von Weber, marking the opera's first American revival in 100 years.
