Frustrated Mayor Decrees Restaurant Must Be Sold at Auction

BIGGS, Calif., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Auctions are everywhere in the news today: If you can't beat them, join them, thought the mayor of one small California town. Once famous as the city that would not change its name to "Got Milk," the small California town of Biggs has only one restaurant, one gas station -- well, you get the picture. It's the kind of small town where everybody knows your name and everyone gathers at the town restaurant for social functions.

The mayor and his wife rebuilt the town's only cafe from the ground up as part of a personal town stimulus package and now health reasons are forcing them out. A teary-eyed Mary Frith said, "As much as we love this place it's time to let somebody else take the reins; we have health and family issues we just can't ignore."

After putting the last three years of their life and a good portion of their savings into this restaurant, the mayor hopes to find that special person who wants to run a small-town cafe. However, with both residential and commercial real estate markets in a tailspin they are frustrated, fed-up and can wait no longer. That's when the Friths realized it might be easier to join the auction frenzy instead of fighting it. Their realtor contacted BidwellAuction.com and after a few meetings the decision was made to let the buyers decide the price.

So now, the town's only restaurant/cafe is up for auction just like thousands of other properties across the United States. "It doesn't matter how great your property is," said auctioneer Stephen Ostrowski (AARE, CES). "It's a sign of the times. This is the cleanest, most profitable restaurant for miles, but all the buyers care about is a good deal."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
