IoT/M2M blogs to follow
If you are interested in the ever-evolving world of communicating objects, we recommend the following blogs:
Spanish telecoms operator Telefónica has been running a blog dedicated to IoT since 2012. Well done and the topics are varied.
IoT Now is the only magazine dedicated to M2M. Their site offers a stream of blogs on many different topics: automobiles, mobile health, telematics, smart cities, industrial applications, markets, etc. This site provides the most sweeping view of developments in the world of the Internet of Things and Machine-to-Machine communication.
Atmel Bits & Pieces
Atmel is a large designer and manufacturer of electronic components, especially microcontrollers. Their blog, Bits & Pieces, has a particularly rich section on the Internet of Things, besides covering all things new and communicating on the market. And it’s a lot of fun to follow.
Microsoft: Internet of Things
Not surprisingly, Microsoft’s blog focuses on promoting their own products. In fact, it reads like one long infomercial for Azure, as developed by their marketing team. We included them in this list because every so often they do have interesting articles on concrete applications of their products.
IBM Internet of Things
IBM runs a rather generic, institutional IoT blog. Though it’s not one of our favourites, it is useful for keeping an eye on new technologies. Surprisingly, they have no RSS feed… pity!
EEVblog, by Australian David L. Jones, is one of our absolute favourites. Its scope goes far beyond communicating objects, covering electronic design in general. His videos where he takes apart everything and anything are a hoot: his unforgiving, critical eye identifies every last design flaw.
Adafruit is an on-line store of electronic components and fun, educational kits based on Arduino or Raspberry Pi boards. The blog is a goldmine of technological gadgets, very often with artistic applications, to awaken your inner creative genius.
