Researchers at MIT have found a way to make one of the world’s strongest materials even stronger. Graphene, a two-dimensional form of carbon that gets its strength from a unique honeycomb structure, was made even more durable by compressing and fusing it into a 3D sponge-like configuration. The ultralight material has a density of just five percent, but could be as much as 10 times stronger than steel.
Last January I wrote a TechCrunch post predicting the major programming trends of 2016.
But in the software development world, things can change very quickly. It can be difficult to see the high-level trends clearly through all the chatter about shiny new development languages, frameworks and tools.
So, as we near the end of 2016, how accurate were my predictions?
The Internet of Everything was listed as one of the top trends of 2015 by Gartner .The term Internet of Everything (IoE) is a fairly new term , and there is a confusion about the difference between the Internet of Everything (IoE) and the Internet of Things (IoT) , to clarify that, let’s start with definitions , applications and explore the future of this new concept.

When a major company like Microsoft announces a new release, you generally expect to be shown the final product. After all, big companies usually use product releases as PR stunts. They kick off a major press cycle with hype over new features to get people to pay attention. Microsoft has decided to take a different approach this time around by announcing a different kind of innovation.
Even though there are millions of quality apps available through the Google Play Store, they can't obviously be shown to the user all at once. This is why Google has put together a content discovery system that takes into account the number of installs and user ratings when ranking an Android app. The goal is to showcase the most trusted and innovative apps first.
Last month we’ve published an article about remarkable M&As of August 2016. This September world-known companies were rather active in acquisitions, too. Here is a list of the freshest M&A transactions.
We’ve said it before and we’re going to say it once again: the Internet of Things is the future and it won’t be long until this concept will be embraced by more and more people.
A Google search for “Internet of Things” term reveals over 280,000,000 results, thanks to the media making the connection between the smart home wearable devices, and the connected automobile, IoT has begun to become part of the popular parlance. But that’s not the complete picture, according to Gartner’s Nick Jones, vice president and distinguished analyst “The IoT demands an extensive range of new technologies and skills that many organizations have yet to master,” he added “A recurring theme in the IoT space is the immaturity of technologies and services and of the vendors providing them. Architecting for this immaturity and managing the risk it creates will be a key challenge for organizations exploiting the IoT. In many technology areas, lack of skills will also pose significant challenges.”
Nowadays many companies whose business is far distant from informational technologies consider IT-services as a black hole swallowing big and small sums of money for software and services which very often seems unnecessary and ineffective for their top executives. The problem is quite widespread, so the question is how could this attitude be changed and what instrument should be used to solve the issue. And the answer is - a transparent software asset management.
