Pachube Gets Acquired, Gets New Name, Gets Real
Pachube, a vision for integrating sensors to build the Internet of things (my understanding, its definition is below), was acquired by LogMein back last July. I missed that but did note the service back in 2008 (APB coverage). Today, the company now only announces a new spellable, pronounceable name, Cosm (like the end of "microcosm" or the beginning of "Cosmos") but also some new features to make using the service easier. There's even a map of 1000 public sensors out in the world pumping data through the API.
Cosm, a realtime data brokerage platform for the Internet of Things, provides most of its functionality via its Application Programming Interface (API), rather than via the website itself. The API makes it quick and easy to create products that connect to the Internet of Things by offering sophisticated realtime data, history and user management tools for sensors, devices and environments around the world.
