Experience 'One of the Best U.S. Islands' at Hilton Head Resort

Hilton Head Marriott Resort & Spa Offers Oceanfront Setting, Luxury Spa and Golf

HILTON HEAD, SC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/13/14 -- Summer is in full swing, which means travelers are seeking a spot of soft sand to call their own. While beautiful beaches can be found in exotic destinations around the world, beach-goers will find that the United States offers plenty of its own. After a month of voting by readers of USA Today and 10Best, the Best U.S. Islands have been chosen, with Hilton Head rounding out the list at number 10.

The Hilton Head Marriott Resort & Spa offers the opportunity to experience this top destination first-hand, with an oceanfront setting that's as beautiful as it is convenient. The small island, only 12 miles long and 5 miles wide, is appealing to travelers of all interests, from those looking to hike, bike or golf in Hilton Head Island to others who prefer a relaxing day on the beach or at the spa.

The best the island has to offer is available at this family-friendly Hilton Head resort. The Atlantic Ocean is just steps away, where visitors can settle into the sand or head out on the water for adrenaline-pumping activities. The hotel's indoor and outdoor pools offer alternatives when the ocean's too cold or rough, and its European-style spa is the perfect place to work out kinks after a day of outdoor activities or an intense afternoon in the fitness center.

Golf is one of the top attractions in Hilton Head, and this hotel's Palmetto Dunes Golf Club features three championship courses designed by Arthur Hills, George Fazio and Robert Trent Jones, respectively. Great food is also part of the experience here, and the resort offers four venues that all take advantage of the oceanfront location. At The Cafe, diners can enjoy modern American cuisine, while Conroy's highlights fresh seafood including crab cakes, shrimp and salmon. Casual dining can be found at Ocean Blu, offering quick bites such as sandwiches, and the pool/beachside Liquid, serving cocktails, beer and light snacks.

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world.

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, a...
