"We extend our deepest sympathy to the family of Steve Jobs, his friends and colleagues, and the entire Apple community. He was an American icon and among the greatest visionaries of our time, taken too soon.

"While Steve Jobs battled a rare form of pancreatic cancer (pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor), his passing, if due to pancreatic cancer, is a stark reminder of the severity of this deadly cancer and lack of effective treatment options available to patients. Even those with the greatest access to treatments and the highest level of care cannot defeat this insidious disease.

"It's time to make pancreatic cancer a national priority and give patients a fighting chance. We invite all those inspired by this great man to join the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in the fight against this devastating disease. We must come together to know, fight and end pancreatic cancer."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next-gen applications and how to address the challenges of building applications that harness all data types and sources.
