At THEORIS our server room temperature is controlled by an A/C unit, but we are facing two issues:
1- In summer the room temperature may go above 30°C, requiring extra cooling capacity.
2- In case of a power cut the A/C does not restart automatically, a user action is required.
We solved these two issues with a connected IoT solution based on an ICOP Educake and Azure Mobile Service.

Following a cat's activity is not an easy task, Azure Mobile Services makes it possible with the help of a dedicated intelligent IoT system and REST appications.
In December 2013, DMP released new platforms based on the Vortex86 architecture and compatible with the well known Arduino programming model. I ordered one of these platforms and made my first tests during the week end.
My mobile phone was an old 4 years old Wimo 5.0 and I had to change it. As Phone7 was made available last week in France I got a brand new LG once they were available in stores. Here are my first impressions:

I'm really surprised because I saw "Outlook hubs" in the review videos, do they use EMEA as a field test, like "let's see what happends when they can't synchronize..." (YES I was angry, almost brought back the phone to the store, lucky it was closed at night).
The experience with the touch interface is awesome, Phone7 really is what I expected from my Zune HD experience (add a phone, wireless and a camera). Same impression with t ...
I'm opening this new blog today to post technical articles on Windows Embedded. I already participate to the embedded101 website where I write articles or translate existing articles in French. The French articles section is under re-organisation and will be available soon, I'll provide the link in a further post.
Re: Windows Phone 7 first impressions
Yes, I was referring to local Outlook synchronization. Exchange Server synching is definitely provided...
