IBM’s Almaden lab is sacred ground for techies. Set in the middle of 700 grassy acres on a hill south of San Jose, its scientists have filed thousands of patents. They’ve won Turing and Nobel prizes. And almost 60 years ago, they pioneered the first bulky disk drive. Since then, they’ve been involved in successive pushes to miniaturize it and miniaturize it again, so that now even the tiniest of devices can gather and store data.

SARNIA, ON. — The Beyond the Border Action Plan, announced jointly last year by the Harper and Obama administration, has perhaps taken its first step in improving conditions at the border for truckers.

As part of a new pilot program at the Blue Water Bridge, carriers and shippers will need to be either Partners in Protection (PIP) or Customs Self-Assessment (CSA) approved — not both, as is currently required.

A seal breaks on a refrigerated container of food in a truck and the temperature begins to rise. The driver drives on, oblivious to the impending crisis until the next scheduled check reveals the extent of the disaster.

The story could have a better outcome under a different scenario. As soon as the seal breaks, a sensor detects the temperature change and sends an alarm to the monitoring unit in the cab of the truck and the trucking company's head office, notifying the driver immediately of a problem. The driver pulls over and fixes the problem before anything is damaged.
