Expanding on Oregon Scientific's award-winning SmartGlobe line, the new SmartGlobe Infinity offers multiple themes, inspiring content, and includes a wireless talking Smart Pen. This high-tech educational toy teaches countries, capitals, population, history and so much more!

The SmartGlobe Discovery provides amazing value in an economical package. With 19 exciting activities and games, this Globe provides hours of educational entertainment with amazing facts about planet Earth.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
