Microsoft buys a company enabling the Internet of Things

If it wasn’t already evident that Microsoft is serious about becoming a big player in the Internet of Things, it is now.

The tech pioneer has bought Solair, a company focused on Internet of Things services for businesses — say, making sure that factory machines are running smoothly. Microsoft isn’t divulging exact plans yet, but it expects to fold Solair’s tech intoAzure’s IoT Suite. You may not witness the fruits of this acquisition first-hand, but don’t be surprised if the gadgets you buy arrive sooner and with fewer flaws.
