For those who want to use Microsoft languages, or JavaScript, to build IoT apps, it's great news. I think I'm going to follow the weather station tutorial over the weekend.

The New York Times ran an article about how self-driving cars have ignited a gold rush among the states. We're starting to see fake suburbs and research centers pop up all across the US. The prize for this rush? An estimated $20 billion of global spend in self-drive technology.

Finally, CubeSensors are a set of rechargable cube-shaped sensors that you can distribute around you home to get started with the Internet of Things.  If you don't want to go to any trouble with coding and wiring, it might be the perfect entry point. The price is a little steep though!
