There is no recall to DePuy Pinnacle Hip Systems just yet, but thousands of claims have been filed for complications including hip pain, metal poisoning known as Metallosis, hip implant failure, and tissue damage. Patients that have experienced complications from the DePuy Pinnacle system can receive assistance from Legal-Bay with legal guidance, finding a Pinnacle Hip law firm, or receiving possible pre-settlement funding if they already have retained a law firm. Legal-Bay is still continuing to fund DePuy ASR Hip Replacement System related cases whether they are settled or still active.

Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations of Legal-Bay commented on the company's current focus, "Many of our ASR clients are still requesting money from their settlement that is expected to be paid in the upcoming months, and we continue to fund ASR cases in large numbers at reduced rates and fees, along with cases that have large buyouts from other lawsuit finance companies. However, we are now focusing our efforts on DePuy's Pinnacle hip cases that are not recalled and are expected to drag on for years, as well as Stryker, Wright and Biomet cases as well."

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 ...
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 Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management.

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud.

Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
