If you hadn't heard, the big event this week in the technology world is CES. I've selected a number of articles about what people are expecting, and not expecting to see this week at CES. Additionally, as we start 2017, I found a great piece covered at the end of the issue that summarizes the big stories in IoT for the past year.
2017 is starting off as a great year for IoT and I'm looking forward to continue to create, curate and publish IoT Weekly News each week. I hope you enjoy this issue and please remember to tweet it to your followers!

This article hits the nail on the head around the need for IoT, regardless of some of the wholes that exist today. I enjoyed this quote from Laura DiDio in the article, which reads, "When it comes to IoT adoption, pragmatism rules". This is so very true.

Instead, the companies that have a strategy and solution using all three of these technologies will advance the most quickly in the market.
