Acer opts for slow approach to apps for IoT

TaiwanTaiwanese computer maker Acer said Thursday it will take cautious steps to develop Internet of Things (IoT) applications as it seeks to explore new business opportunities in a shrinking PC market. Acer chairman George Huang told employees at an internal meeting that the company has failed in the past to keep pace with “paradigm shifts” in the PC industry, which grew about 15% annually from 2003 to 2010 and declined more than 10% per year between 2010 and 2013.
