Kindle Fire Teardown Shows Tablet A Loss Leader

A breakdown of the components used in Kindle Fire shows Amazon is losing about $10 per tablet sold, lending credence to the view that the e-merchant sees the device not as a profit center but as a conduit for selling subscription media services and physical goods. Analysts at market watcher iSuppli tore down the Kindle Fire and estimated that the total cost of its components is $209.63. Amazon is selling the tablet for $199. The analysts said Amazon will make up for the loss through the additional sales generated by Kindle, particularly sales of physical, high-margin consumer goods. "The real benefit of the Kindle Fire to Amazon will not be in selling hardware or digital content," said iSuppli. "Rather the Kindle Fire, and the content demand it stimulates, will serve to promote sales of the kinds of physical goods that comprise the majority of Amazon's business."

Verizon Expands Home-Monitoring Service Plans

VFTTH Council Conference 2011 - Verizon Communications Inc. is showing off a new home monitoring and control service it will launch on Oct. 11 as part of the FTTH demo home here this week. For $9.95 per month, plus the cost of the equipment, Verizon's broadband subscribers will be able to remotely monitor their homes via video, secure windows and doors, track energy usage, and remotely control lights, temperature, appliances and door locks. The service is initially available to Verizon's FiOS and DSL customers, but it will ultimately be sold on its own and could be a linchpin service in Verizon's larger connected home strategy, launched at CES in January. By rolling out a service that undercuts pricing by major home security firms like ADT, Verizon is staking out new turf -- albeit turf the Comcast Corp. and other cable firms also are exploring.

Control Protocol Design

This document is for developers of hardware devices which are intended for external control by automation systems, specialized control applications, or hardware controllers, via some sort of wired or wireless connection. Any such device must expose a 'control protocol' which defines the form and meaning of commands and information passing between the two involved parties. This document describes how to create a high quality control protocol, and the considerations thereof. The information in this document is intended to improve the quality of automation at the most fundamental level, because automation systems are no better than the extent to which they can reliably and conveniently provide control over the customer's devices, and long experience has shown that far too many devices have substandard control protocols. This document starts out fairly simply and generically, so if you already have some experience in this area, you may wish to skip forward a bit to the more detailed technical sections.

Cooling Large Home Theater Installations

The easiest way to overcome the noise and control issues is to use cooling devices that: are located away from the enclosure, turn slowly, and are controlled by the temperature within the enclosure.

Facebook … The Next Best Thing to Buy, Like

While 93 percent of Facebookers like "Like" buttons at least monthly; the action/commitment means different things to different people.  With some, it's merely a way of social bookmarking so they can quickly find the location again. Companies, brand managers and communications people walk a fine line as they begin to engage more and more with customers and users on a one-to-one basis.  But with more than 800M (and counting) Facebookers out there brands simply have to work harder, do more to be Liked ‚Ķ and stay Liked.

Health, Privacy and Security within the Smart Grid

On the surface, a smart grid system sounds like it has great potential from controlling our appliances and saving us money to keeping the world green.  On the other side, we could face security, privacy and health issues.  These concerns need to be addressed before we can feel comfortable with the smart grid.

Home Automation Protocols, Networks and the Smart Grid

We have a long way to go before AV, lighting, HVAC, and appliances come together within a home automation network that will work with smart meters and the utilities' back office system to communicate both ways flawlessly, controlling how and when energy is wisely consumed.  Strides are being made in each area and we will see more systems coming together for the perfect balance of energy consumption and energy savings.
