"As we celebrate our 10-year anniversary, we are thrilled to be ranked 'Highest in Customer Satisfaction with HDTVs' by J.D. Power and Associates4.  Thanks to the recognition of savvy consumers who count on VIZIO to deliver the best technology at the best value, we're consistently a top-selling brand of LED HDTVs overall in the U.S. and are currently America's #1 60+ inch HDTV company1," said Lily Knowles, VIZIO VP of Product Marketing.

Whether mounted on the wall, on a stand or in an entertainment center, these TVs look spectacular thanks to a slim outer bezel that lets users replace their old set with a larger screen within the same amount of cabinet or shelf space. The large E-Series models also feature an ultra-thin profile, less than two inches deep, and utilize LED backlighting with advanced local dimming technology for a superior Full HD 1080p picture that delivers deeper blacks and more vivid colors, all while consuming less energy than conventional flat-panel non-LED TVs.

"VIZIO had a strong position in the Smart TV category in North America during Q3'12 with the #1 share of units shipped."

"Of all the connected TV sets in the market, VIZIO's smart TV platform continues to be one of the easiest to use with lots of content options," said Dan Rayburn, Principal Analyst, Digital Media, Frost & Sullivan.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
As we approach the next @ThingsExpo, to be held June 9-11 at the Javits Center in New York, my thoughts naturally turn to the Internet of Things. The IoT is a leviathan—in the best possible sense of the term—that will sweep up most everything in the ocean of data and technology being created today and tomorrow. But rather than try to grasp all of its possible uses, for today I'm looking at “just” the Industrial Internet part. I just read a long paper co-authored by Tim Berners-Lee about the possibility of describing a “web science,” that is, discipline that combines the study involved ...

Recent technology advances in miniaturization has positioned the wearables as the pinnacle of technology convergence with the human body.
