The Internet of Everything could generate $4.6 Trillion in value for public sector organizations over the next decade, according to a new study released by Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The Internet of Everything (IoE) can help governments create value by saving money, improving employee productivity, generating new revenue (without raising taxes) and enhancing citizen benefits. IoE is the networked connection of people, process, data and things, and the increased value that occurs as "everything" joins the network. Several technology transitions -- including the Internet of Things, increased mobility, the emergence of cloud computing, and the growing importance of big data, among others -- are combining to enable IoE.  

Tesla Motors Inc. (NASDAQ: TESLA) sales in the fourth quarter of 2013 were the highest in company history by a significant margin. With almost 6,900 vehicles sold and delivered, Tesla exceeded prior guidance by approximately 20%. A higher than expected number of cars was manufactured as a result of an excellent effort by the Tesla production team and key suppliers, particularly Panasonic.  The two key drivers of demand were the superlative safety record of the Model S and great performance under extremely cold conditions.
