Readers have been asking us for some time now to produce an iPad app for Design News. I'm happy to say that the app is available. It actually has been available for a few months, but we haven't done a great job at getting the word out. Simply go to the app sore, search for "Design News," and voilà. Once you have the app, you can download individual issues of the magazine.
The iPad app provides a great way to catch up on articles from all the issues of the magazine. The articles get posted as the print publication becomes available each month. Once you download the issue, you don't need to be connected to the Net to read it. So you can enjoy your favorite publication in a plane, at the beach, or wherever you happen to be.
Richard, congrats for the deliverables. I have a concern also; most of the members residing outside US are using Android/windows Smartphones, so if you are able to make an app for Android and Windows, that's very helpful.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
