LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/13 -- POPSUGAR Inc., a global media and technology company at the intersection of content and commerce, today announced Robert Pattinson as the 2013 POPSUGAR 100 winner. Commenting on the win, Molly Goodson, POPSUGAR VP of Content, had this to say: "Robert Pattinson's fan base is more loyal than any other I've seen in all our years at POPSUGAR. The past 12 months have been a turning point for Rob, in his career and personal life. Robert said goodbye to Twilight and most recently signed on to be the face of Dior Homme, which further solidifies his status as a global heartthrob. Rob's fans voted him to the No. 1 spot for an unprecedented third time following his POPSUGAR 100 crowns in 2009 and 2010. The POPSUGAR 100 is unlike any other fan-voted contest out there. This year the four categories -- Fresh Faces, Game Changers, Phenoms, and Classics -- allowed for a new variety on the list. We are so proud of the 100 our readers selected. We have the people who are changing the world as women, like Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Angelina Jolie, and Jenna Lyons, alongside the stars we've loved and admired for years, such as Johnny Depp, Jennifer Aniston, and Gwyneth Paltrow."
The POPSUGAR 100 gives the hottest names in fashion, film, TV, music, and politics the opportunity to face off in a true battle of talent! This year's contest brought in record numbers with more than 1.4 million votes determining the winner.
From May 8 to June 4, readers voted online for their favorite celebrities across four categories. While Pattinson took the overall title, he also beat out many of his contemporaries in the Fresh Faces competition. Jennifer Lawrence reigned supreme in the Phenoms category, while Kate Middleton won the title of Game Changer. Former POPSUGAR 100 winner Johnny Depp proved he's still popular with fans by winning the most votes in the Classics category.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
