----------------------------------------------------------------------------
(1) Revenues reported are based on monthly average exchange rates, report
same store revenues and are in USD millions. From month to month, exchange
rate fluctuations could cause an impact on revenues as compared to the
previous year.
(2) 2014 and 2013 revenues consist of all gaming revenue in the country plus
revenue from our fully-owned Fiesta Hotel and management fees for the
Thunderbird Hotel - Pardo, Thunderbird Hotel - Carrera and Thunderbird Hotel
- El Pueblo, which are owned by third parties.
(3) Effective January 1, 2013, IFRS 11 changed the way that joint ventures
are accounted for whereby proportional consolidation is no longer allowed
and equity accounting should be applied to joint ventures. Until further
notice and for the convenience of the reader and for the illustrative
purposes of this monthly revenue report, the Group has elected to continue
to show the Costa Rican joint venture proportional revenues, which vary from
the way that the Group accounts for these revenues in our Interim and Annual
Financial Statements.
(4) In October 2013, we reduced 290 gaming positions in Costa Rica that
cost more to maintain on the floor (because of per position gaming taxes)
than their respective revenue. As a result, period revenue has dropped, but
should be reflected in enhanced EBITDA from the related properties.

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. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

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.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.
