If you haven't yet, I'd encourage you to check the new site www.50billionchips.com. As I mentioned in an earlier blog Three videos celebrate ARM Partners passing 50 billion chips, the site shares insights from our Partners and ARM executives.
The latest installment is by our CTO, Mike Muller in his blog The Next 100 Billion. What do you think?
One of the trends that I think is interesting is the coming and going of watches. I stopped wearing a watch a few years ago for two reasons:
Then I carried a fit bit tracker for awhile to track my steps. That was good for awhile, but then I didn't like carrying a separate device. When the Fitbits came out they were a little attractive, but didn't offer me enough functionality to wear another device. However, now I'm much more tempted by the smart watches. A ton more info is available on the new ones - not just the time nor just steps. Full devices. And it's easier to look at my wrist for a calendar update than pull out my phone. Wearing a watch I can't walk away and forget my phone. They even are getting less clunky.
If you prefer video, Mike's video gives his views and some clever applications for the future. I love the idea of the car picking me up with the groceries. Can it also pick up the kids and take them to practice?
