Edge computing will blow away the cloud

SAN FRANCISCO — The ubiquitous cloud computing craze may not be long for this world if venture capitalist Peter Levine is right. The Andreessen Horowitz general partner said that as more computing capabilities move to so-called “edge” devices, including anything from driverless cars and drones to the boundless devices that make up the internet of things (IoT), the cloud will slowly evaporate.

“A large portion of computation that gets done in the cloud today will return to the edge,” said Levine at the Wall Street Journal’s CIO Network event here Tuesday.

Levine said the driverless car, whose 200-plus CPUs effectively make it a “data center on wheels,” is a prime example of an edge device whose computing capabilities must be self-contained. Levine said that an autonomous vehicle relying on the cloud fo

Before he pulled off in his red drop top luxury vehicle, Game stopped for a moment to snap an “us-ie” with an eager valet worker.

“Blood, Sweat & Heels” Star Daisy Lewellyn Passes Away At 36, Bravo “Actively Planning Memorial”

 photo DaisyLewellynNBCUniversalCableEntertainmentAuTScZn0NmHl_zpsaq7p1vra.jpg

In sad news, Daisy Lewellyn, style expert and star of Bravo’s “Blood, Sweat & Heels,” passed away early this morning. We have the full story inside.

At the age of 36, reality star and style expert Daisy Lewellyn has passed away.  Just one year ago, she revealed on the last season of “Blood, Sweat & Heels” that she had been battling stage 3 cancer of the bile ducts for the last year.  She was diagnosed in 2014.

We’re told her circle of friends and families made phone calls last night asking for prayers for Daisy.  This morning, she passed away.

On the show, the consistently upbeat and optimistic Essence & InStyle fashion contributor kept up with her tv appearances during her battle, not even informing her own team about her diagnosis until she was left no choice.

Daisy appeared on “Kathy Lee & Hoda” while the last season of “BS&H” aired and revealed the cancer had gone into remission.

Bravo released a statement today that reads:

“We are devastated to learn that Daisy Lewellyn from Bravo’s ‘Blood, Sweat & Heels’ has passed away this morning after a battle with a rare form of cancer. Daisy passed on in peace and filled with joy, surrounded by her family and friends. We are all saddened to lose this wonderful woman. Our thoughts and deepest sympathy is expressed.”

We also learned from a Bravo producer that the network is actively planning a way to memorialize the L.A. native.

Daisy’s former co-stars, including Geneva Thomas and Demetria Lucas, have also poured out their condolences.

Just last month, Daisy shot a style segment for TvOne:
