New Equestrian Security Product Features Radio Frequency Identification Tags for Saddle and Tack Registry and Tracking System

TackTrac, an affordable new equestrian security product, allows users to permanently mark their equipment with a small radio frequency identification (RFID) tag. The device can be inserted into various tack equipment and provides an identification number that can be registered in an online database. TackTrac enables users to easily identify and track equipment if lost or stolen.

West Henrietta, NY (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 29, 2022 -- TackTrac, an affordable new equestrian security product that features a saddle and tack registry and tracking system, was introduced at Equine Affaire in Columbus, Ohio on April 7 by TackTrac Inc. TackTrac allows users to tag a saddle or tack with a microchip so it can be identified and recovered if lost or stolen. TackTrac is the only company in the United States to offer a national tracking and recovery database for the equine tack equipment industry.

TackTrac is a self-installed product that includes both a state-of-the-art radio frequency identification (RFID) microchip kit and a Global Online Registry and Recovery Database to add a new layer of theft deterrence and assist in the recovery of lost or stolen tack items. Installation and registration is easy; when properly inserted into a saddle, tack or tack box, the microchip can provide the key information necessary to instantly identify the item and enable it to be returned if lost or stolen.

RFID tags are small microchips that work by sending out a small, encoded radio signal when in the proximity of RFID reader equipment. The RFID readers supply a small amount of electromagnetic power, which allows the tag to transmit a faint radio signal. The tag's signal contains the unique identification number encoded onto the chip during the manufacturing process. The reader device can then display this number to the user.

TackTrac uses an AVID Eurochip® which is compatible with AVID® and Destron® multiple reader microchip scanners. Thousands of existing microchip multiple scanners throughout the United States can be used to scan the saddle, tack or tack box to positively identify the owner. This microchip contains a unique identification code, requires no power source and lasts for decades. TackTrac uses 125K frequency microchips and scanners, which are the most compatible with the pet, equine and livestock microchip tracking industry.

The microchip is difficult to remove once installed. An attempt to remove the microchip would be obvious and would potentially indicate that the item was stolen. This may act as a deterrent to theft or signal that an item should not be purchased, as it may be stolen.

After a microchip is installed in a saddle or tack item, the owner can register the microchip ID in the online registry database (available at www.tacktrac.com). Also in the database is an area to include a detailed description of the item and an optional uploaded image.

The initial tagging kit is available online for $39.95. TackTrac offers reseller/installer programs to qualified tack shops, saddle fitters, farriers and stables. For more information, visit www.tacktrac.com.

Instantly Convert from Serial Data Communications to Bluetooth Wireless

Anyone with serial port communications can now convert to Bluetooth wireless communications just by plugging in a Parani10 adapter. Not only that, they can create a whole network using a Parani100 Bluetooth Gateway without having to alter their equipment in any way.

(PRWEB) April 28, 2022 -- There are lots of products and equipment in service using serial communications especially RS232. Without expensive redesign, how can it be updated to use wireless technology? The answer is a new serial port to Bluetooth adapter called Parani10. This adapter is very flexible and can be set up to operate in different ways using simple PC software or through Hyperterm or similar terminal programs.

The easiest operation is to lock two Parani10 adapters together in the software to give point to point communication between the two adapters. This provides a virtual serial cable up to 200 meters long! So, with very little effort, existing RS232 cables can be replaced by a wireless link. The Parani10 adapter can also act as a Bluetooth interface for a PC via the serial port, so the PC can communicate with mobile phones and other Bluetooth devices.

If a connection needs to be made between more devices or an interface is required to a standard network, there is a partner product called Parani100 that is a Bluetooth Gateway. Again, this is setup using simple Windows software or via the Web, Telnet or a Serial Terminal program. Advanced users can even control it from their own programs using standard AT Modem commands. The Parani100 can easily be set to operate in different modes for maximum flexibility.

It can be configured to be a simple router to allow up to 7 Bluetooth nodes, such as the Parani10 Serial to Bluetooth adapters, to communicate with each other. Alternatively, it can be used to connect the Bluetooth adapters to an Ethernet network either as a Client or a Server. Because Tactical’s COM Port Redirector software is included in the package, up to 7 Parani10 Bluetooth to Serial adapters can be addressed as if they were standard COM ports. This means that the users control program code only needs minor modification to operate wirelessly. The Parani100 can also act as a repeater to extend the range of the network, and distances of 1.2Km can be obtained when it is used with optional patch antennas.

Both the Parani10 RS232 to Bluetooth adapter and the Parani100 Bluetooth Gateway are really straightforward, and no knowledge of wireless technology or Bluetooth is needed to use them. They really do provide an instant wireless network to replace serial cables with minimal effort by the engineer.

New Vishay Siliconix 40-V and 60-V MOSFETs for Automotive Applications

New Vishay Siliconix 40-V and 60-V MOSFETs Feature Industry's First Combination of High 3.4-V Threshold Voltage and Low 2.7-Milliohm On-Resistance for High-Temp Automotive Applications

(PRWEB) April 28, 2022 -- Siliconix incorporated (NASDAQ: SILI), an 80.4%-owned subsidiary of Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH), today announced the industry's first n-channel MOSFETs that combine a high 3.4-V threshold voltage with on-resistance as low as 2.7 milliohms.


The 10 new MOSFETs, available in 40-V and 60-V versions, are intended for use in high-temperature, high-current applications with inductive loads in the automotive, industrial, and fixed telecom industries, such as high-side switches, motor drives, and 12-V boardnets.

When MOSFETs operate in high-temperature, high-current environments, they can turn on spontaneously if their threshold voltage, impacted by heat, starts to approach 0 V. Until now, this posed a dilemma for designers. One solution was the addition of a negative voltage driver to the circuit, but the drawbacks were increased circuit size, cost, and complexity. Another solution would be to use a device with a high threshold voltage, but the effect in this case is an undesirable increase in on-resistance.

This new power MOSFET family provides a way out of this dilemma with high-density silicon technology that allows the same device to deliver both low on-resistance and a high threshold voltage that avoids the problem of spontaneous turn-on in automotive, industrial, and other applications involving high temperatures and high levels of current.

Available in the DPAK, D2PAK, and PowerPAK SO-8 packages, samples and production quantities of the new MOSFETs are available now with lead times of 10 to 12 weeks for larger orders. Pricing for U.S. delivery in 100,000-piece quantities starts at $1.35 per piece.

Siliconix is a leading manufacturer of power MOSFETs, power ICs, analog switches, and multiplexers for computers, cell phones, fixed communications networks, automobiles, and other consumer and industrial electronic systems. With 2004 worldwide sales of $466.1 million, the company's facilities include a company-owned Class 1 wafer fab dedicated to the manufacture of power products in Santa Clara, Calif., and a Class 1 wafer fab located in Itzehoe, Germany, utilized under a lease arrangement. The company's products are also fabricated by subcontractors in Japan, Germany, China, Taiwan, and the United States. Assembly and test facilities include a company-owned facility in Taiwan, a joint venture in Shanghai, China, and subcontractors in the Philippines, China, Taiwan, and Israel.

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., a Fortune 1,000 Company listed on the NYSE (VSH), is one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, rectifiers, transistors, and optoelectronics) and selected ICs, and passive electronic components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, and transducers). Vishay's components can be found in products manufactured in a very broad range of industries worldwide. Vishay is headquartered in Malvern, Pa., and has operations in 17 countries employing over 25,000 people. Vishay can be found on the Internet at http://www.vishay.com.

GoDogGo Toy Chosen by MSN Entertainment As One of the Top 10 Gadgets for Celebrities and Their Pooches

GoDogGo® Canine Activity Sport has been chosen by MSN Entertainment as one of the top 10 gadgets for celebrities and their pooches. The patented design makes this product the only one of its kind for Fido.

(PRWEB) April 27, 2022 -- GoDogGo® Canine Activity Sport has been chosen by MSN Entertainment as one of the top 10 gadgets for celebrity pooches. The patented design makes this product the only one of its kind for Fido. At number seven on the list of "Toys for Celebs," GoDogGo ($150), is a bucket-sized gadget that launches tennis balls for Fido to fetch. All that the dog's human companion needs to do is select the distance (from 15 to 30 feet) and frequency (from 7- to 15-second intervals), using the handy remote controller. Pet owners can train their dogs to return tossed balls directly to the hopper for continuous play.

GoDogGo Canine Activity Sport was designed and developed by Ron Thompson of Gig Harbor, Wash. Ron is a product designer with an over-active chocolate Labrador by the name of "Hershey". Hershey, like most Labs, cannot get enough of the game of "fetch." Ron acted upon this need to keep his dog busy while he was working in the yard.

Since GoDogGo® was introduced, it has found many admirers from the elderly pet owner to the paraplegic that absolutely needs to keep their pet fit but may not have the physical ability to do so.

Ron Thompson, (Thompson Design) is an independent consumer product designer and developer. GoDogGo® is a registered trademark of Thompson Design. GoDogGo® Canine Activity Sport is sold through Marketing Dynamics Unlimited, Inc.

Zetera's New Network Storage Technology Paves the Way For Cost-Effective, Protected Storage for Corporate and Consumer Networks

IDC releases whitepaper examining Zetera's position and potential in the storage networking industry.

Irvine, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 26, 2022 -- Zetera Corporation, the developer of breakthrough network storage technology, today announced the availability of a new whitepaper authored by IDC titled, "A New Disruptive IP Storage Technology Paves the Way for Advanced, Cost-Effective, and Protected Storage for Corporate and Consumer Networks." The paper examines the potential for Zetera's patent-pending technology to be a disruptive solution within the network storage industry. According to IDC, this potential is due to the technology's ability to match or exceed the capabilities of existing storage standards at a lower cost.

The shifting nature of business needs and the advent of the networked home are changing the ways companies and consumers use storage. For businesses, the widespread use of local networks and advanced applications, the explosion in Internet traffic and large email attachments, and the growing use of multimedia sound and imagery to support Web sites, business applications and regulatory mandates requires bigger and better storage systems. IT managers need storage solutions that meet these new requirements and scale to meet tomorrow's anticipated and unanticipated demands.

On the consumer side, an explosion in the range and type of home networking and personal entertainment devices such as MP3 players, PVRs, and game systems require expanded levels of storage. IDC contends that today, "it is not hard to find households that have almost a terabyte of storage installed across various devices." Consumers concerned with storing and protecting precious memories (family photos and videos) along with other digital possessions need storage solutions that add capacity that is self-configuring and accessible by all systems, allocate capacity for individual applications, and enable more robust data protection.

Zetera has introduced a new storage networking architecture that improves on what IDC considers to be the four fundamental factors that drive the success of a network storage system – cost, scalability, performance and reliability. Zetera network storage uses IP as the storage fabric, delivering network storage without bottlenecks and at the lowest cost. The technology uses IP multicast to achieve sharing, spanning and RAID without specialized hardware while scaling linearly without the need for additional controllers/aggregators.

"Zetera's approach isn't 'storage over IP' as discussed by many companies in the storage industry," explains Dave Reinsel, Program Director of Storage Research for IDC and author of the Zetera whitepaper. "In contrast, rather than using IP as an extension cord between clients and storage devices, Zetera uses IP as the storage paradigm itself."

The whitepaper examines in detail how Zetera's approach to IP storage addresses the four critical storage solution criteria more effectively than many existing network storage solutions. "This positive analysis by such a widely respected authority as IDC validates our mission to change the storage industry," said Chuck Cortright, president and CEO of Zetera.

According to IDC, there are many market opportunities for Zetera's storage technology. For businesses of all sizes, Zetera offers an alternative to costly storage solutions with a low-cost, easy-to-deploy, and easy-to-manage integrated storage system. On the home networking side, Zetera's use of IP, a technology that is already supported and used by most consumer electronic devices, unobtrusively ties these standalone islands of storage together in a way that provides both protection and sharing of data.

"The changing information needs of businesses and the advent of the networked home with its growing need for storage capacity and data protection will dramatically change the ways companies and consumers buy and use storage in the coming years," the whitepaper reports. "Zetera, with its fully IP-based storage solution, is in a strong position to capitalize on these changes and become a disruptive technology in the network storage market."

The whitepaper also points out that Zetera's focused approach to bringing its technology to market increases its chances of success. Zetera is marketing its technology initially within the SMB market where there is little conflict with established high-end storage systems and within consumer market where there is an increasing need for inexpensive, easy-to-deploy protected storage.

"We offer computer and consumer electronics manufacturers an extraordinary opportunity to use Zetera's technology to build products that perform better and cost less," added Cortright. NETGEAR® Inc., StorCase®, and Bell Microproducts have all announced Zetera-based network storage products targeted to the consumer and SMB markets that are slated to ship in the summer of 2005.

Fujitsu Announces new Highly Integrated WiMAX SoC, assumes Industry Leadership in IEEE 802.16 Technology

Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) fully supports the announcement made yesterday by Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) who introduced its highly integrated WiMAX system-on-chip at Broadband Wireless World in Las Vegas. The MB87M3400 complies with the IEEE802.16-2004 standard and will enable development of a new generation of WiMAX-compliant broadband wireless access (BWA) equipment.

Frankfurt (PRWEB) April 24, 2022 -- Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) fully supports the announcement made yesterday by Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) who introduced its highly integrated WiMAX system-on-chip at Broadband Wireless World in Las Vegas. The MB87M3400 complies with the IEEE802.16-2004 standard and will enable development of a new generation of WiMAX-compliant broadband wireless access (BWA) equipment.

The Fujitsu WiMAX SoC sets the stage for both base station and subscriber station implementation, which will bring cost-efficient, high-quality, fixed broadband connectivity to Metro Area Network users, without the need for direct Line of Sight access to base stations from their remotely connected subscriber stations. The MB87M3400 is designed to enable deployment of BWA equipment for both base stations and subscriber stations in licensed or license-exempt bands below 11GHz.

“This new WiMAX-compliant SoC is the industry’s most integrated, modular, scalable, and cost-efficient solution,” said Keith Horn, senior vice president of sales and marketing for FMA. “Our design team has worked very closely with innovative systems developers worldwide to deliver the optimal technology for WiMAX-compliant equipment. Early adopters of our system-on-chip are now set to make 2005 the inaugural year for WiMAX-based customer premise equipment, base stations and low-cost subscriber stations in a broad range of geographic markets.”

Manfred Mettendorff, Senior Marketing Manager at Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) added, “In Europe in particular, with the licensed band in the 3.5GHz region, we are expecting a rapid implementation of WiMAX. Fujitsu’s cost efficient solution will enable equipment manufacturers and service providers to offer competitive business models with fast return on investment.”

He continued, "To tie-in with this announcement, FME is co-sponsoring the IQPC WiMAX conference taking place in Berlin, on April 28th & 29th. Reza Golshan, Director, System ASIC from FMA is presenting a paper there on ' Technical challenges to be mastered by making WiMAX interoperable', and our complete chip solution will be discussed and described."

The MB87M3400 uses an OFDM 256 (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) PHY that supports channels from 1.75MHz up to 20MHz, and can operate in TDD or FDD modes, with support for all available channel bandwidths. A programmable frequency selection generates the sample clock for any desired bandwidth. When applying 64QAM modulation in a 20MHz channel and using all 192 sub-carriers, the SoC's data rate can go up to 75Mbps. Uplink sub-channelisation is also supported.

The Fujitsu WiMAX SoC incorporates sophisticated processing power, including a powerful main RISC engine that implements the 802.16 upper-layer MAC, scheduler, drivers, protocol stacks, and user application software. Also on board is a secondary RISC/DSP that functions as a co-processor, which executes lower-layer MAC functions, offloading processing from the upper-layer MAC and enhancing total performance. A multi-channel DMA controller handles high-speed transactions among agents on a high-performance bus.

Incorporates Security, Radio Control, Analogue Circuitry
The Fujitsu WiMAX SoC also incorporates radio control and all required analogue circuits, along with a comprehensive set of integrated peripheral functions. To ensure security, the MB87M3400 uses DES/AES/CCM encryption/decryption engines for the 802.16 MAC privacy sub-layer. The chip also includes a memory controller, an Ethernet engine for interfacing to the network, and high-performance DAC/ADC for flexible baseband interface.

Availability
The MB87M3400 comes in a 436-pin BGA package and is available now. A complete reference design, including all required software and hardware for a cost-effective system solution, is also available. The reference design is scheduled for certification
by the WiMAX ForumTM.

“We saw the need for a lightweight field tester that would let operators stay in the field to complete FLIR testing without dismantling the thermal imager or fire control system from the platform,” said Fred Tzafrir, VP of Marketing and Sales for CI Systems. “At the bottom line, this is a big savings in maintenance costs since the UUT is shipped back to the workshop only when necessary.”

With the CFT, the operator can choose from 5 targets and 4 pre-defined set points that he sets up to meet the requirements of his applications.

Popular Applications:
•Periodic testing of fire control systems mounted on tanks or LAV’s in storage and those deployed in remote locations
•FLIRs mounted on UAVs, fixed wing or rotary wing aerial platforms
•FLIRs mounted on rifles
•FLIRs mounted as perimeter security

The CFT, which replaces CI’s Field Test Collimator (FTC), has already been successfully used in several locations.

Rugged and lightweight, the CFT withstands strenuous conditions to full MIL standards for field operation.

CI Systems develops and commercializes a complete range of products and systems for electro-optical testing and measurement, which all comply with ISO and military standards.

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, general business conditions in the industry, changes in demand for products, the timing and amount or cancellation of orders and other risks.

Pay Per Click Ads Grow in Popularity, as Email Marketing and Spam Decline in ROI. PPC Search Engines like, IpodUp.com, are Becoming the Choice of Online Advertising

There is a change occurring in the online advertising market as email marketing is losing its effectiveness, and pay per click advertising grows in popularity.

(PRWEB) April 22, 2022 -- There is a change occurring in the online advertising market as email marketing is losing its effectiveness, and pay per click advertising grows in popularity.

Until recently, email marketing has been the most popular method of reaching the masses on the internet, to promote businesses and services. Email marketing is continuing to decline in it's ROI,(Return On Investment)as its effectiveness to reach prospective customers is declining.

Why is email marketing declining? According to IpodUp.com VP of Marketing Perry Hersom, "There are several reasons. The recent CAN SPAM law has made it a less attractive advertising method. Most ISP's have now implemented overly stringent spam filters to reduce the amount of spam their customer's are receiving, even email they have asked to receive. Consumers are now able to change email addresses with ease and without cost. This has caused the number of bad email addresses to increase substantially. Due to the spam problem, consumers have become more cautious about giving out their primary email address. And, email marketing is just not tightly targeted to a specific audience".

Pay Per Click (PPC) search engines are picking up a large part of the advertising void created by the decrease in email marketing. Hersom goes on to say "We are very pleased to be in the highly targeted iPod and podcast niche of the pay per click market. We look forward to helping more advertisers convert their advertising methods to the more cost effective, and targeted advertising that pay per click provides".

IpodUp.com invites advertisers and consumers to visit IpodUp.com and let them fulfill your advertising and information needs.

Diversinet Launches Mobisecure Suite of Mobile Tokens and Two-Factor Authentication Services

MobiSecure offers mobile, Internet and security solution providers cost-effective, mass-market strong authentication solutions to protect individuals, companies and enterprises against identity theft, transaction fraud and smorphing

Toronto, ON (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 21, 2022 -- Diversinet Corp. (OTCBB: DVNTF), a leading provider of mobile device security and authentication solutions for the mobile data ecosystem, has launched its MobiSecure suite of mobile tokens and MobiSecure Authentication Service Center designed to protect individuals, companies and enterprises from security threats such as identity theft, online fraud and identity misrepresentation – better known as smorphing.

Diversinet provides a suite of mobile tokens to support mobile, Internet and security provider business needs for cost-effective, mass-market strong authentication solutions. MobiSecure Tokens eliminate the need for consumer and enterprise users to carry additional hard tokens, USB toggles or smart cards with smart card readers for two-factor authentication.

“With more than one billion people around the world already carrying mobile phones, why would they want to carry an additional hard token when they could use their existing phone for two-factor authentication?” says Nagy Moustafa, CEO of Diversinet. “By integrating all authentication tokens within existing mobile phones, everyone in the value-chain saves on costs and enjoys added convenience for all of their identity needs.”

Diversinet has developed a variety of mobile tokens targeted at different user communities with different needs:

- MobiSecure Token: Strong authentication tokens for mass-market online access applications.
- MobiSecure Multi-Token: Activate a variety of online access mobile tokens with the MobiSecure Multi-Token. Add and manage all the mobile tokens needed for all enterprise and consumer strong authentication accounts.
- MobiSecure SMS Token: The MobiSecure SMS Token was developed to provide mass-market authentication tokens through all SMS-based mobile phones operating on all mobile networks as authenticators for online access.
- MobiSecure Browser Plug-In Token: This token is ideal for mobile VPN access and Content Control authentication services. This mobile token activates and supports strong authentication service requests when launching a mobile browser application.
- MobiSecure API Token: Build secure applications to control, restrict and manage access of content and services based on authenticated user profiles with the MobiSecure API Token, the only mobile token for Age Verification and Content Control applications.

All MobiSecure strong authentication tokens are developed with standards-based tools running as an OATH-compliant One-Time-Password (OTP) application on mobile phones with internetworked services provided by the Diversinet MobiSecure Authentication Service Center (MASC). Diversinet mobile tokens are seamlessly managed and supported for credential registration, Over-The-Air (OTA) activation, provisioning and validation services by Diversinet's MASC. With MASC, Diversinet delivers the industry’s first open mobile security service to support OATH-compliant OTP strong authentication on all mobile phones and networks globally. MASC provides all the essential managed services for companies wanting to simplify the development, deployment and delivery of mass-market strong authentication services.

“Diversinet has developed a product for more consumer-based two-factor applications by allowing each and every mobile phone to become a mobile token for mass-market strong authentication solutions,” said Joe Greene, Vice President, IT Security Research for IDC Canada. “In a complex marketplace, products developed with open authentication techniques and mobile industry standards can help promote consumer confidence in conducting online transactions.”

IDC predicts the identity and access management market to grow to more than US$3.5 billion by 2009 from its $2.21 billion market sizing in 2003. Spending on identity and access management technology will be spread across a variety of authentication technologies; including authentication solutions encompassing a variety of tokens such as hard tokens, USB authentication tokens and software licensing authentication tokens. As these fragments are pulled together under one umbrella, IDC predicts authentication will be strengthened by requiring two, three or more factors to assert identity in which multiple passwords and logins associated with different networks and applications are replaced by one-time password authentication solutions.

“Online and mobile networks are the prime targets for transaction fraud, identity theft and smorphing. The exponential growth of malicious attacks is driving the explicit need for companies to protect their customers now or potentially lose them forever,” adds Kashif Hassan, President of Diversinet. “Diversinet’s MobiSecure suite of mobile tokens and MobiSecure Authentication Service Center enables companies to provide all customers with mobile phones with strong authentication tokens for online and mobile application access effectively, efficiently and economically.”

As a leading mobile authentication service provider, Diversinet provides its customers with cost effective, mobile-optimized strong authentication products and services that reduce identity theft and improve brand trust by leveraging more than 1.5 billion consumer and enterprise mobile phones as strong authentication tokens. Diversinet MobiSecure suite of mobile tokens and MASC offerings are available on all intelligent mobile device platforms, including Microsoft, RIM, Symbian, Palm and Java-based phones.

Diversinet Adds Mobile Token Support for Blackberry Business Phones

Diversinet MobiSecure Token enables replacement of hard tokens and simplifies authentication services for both enterprise and mass-market consumer applications.

Toronto, ON (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 21, 2022 -- Diversinet Corp. (OTCBB: DVNTF), a leading provider of mobile device security and authentication solutions for the mobile data ecosystem, today announced support for the popular BlackBerry 7100™ Series of business phones, developed by Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM). Owners of the BlackBerry 7100™ Series of business phones can now use the Diversinet MobiSecure Token for strong authentication operating through the Diversinet MobiSecure Authentication Service Center.

Diversinet's latest MobiSecure Token enables application providers, mobile network operators and security service providers to deliver one-time-password-based two-factor authentication services to both enterprise customers and mass-market consumers via BlackBerry®.

“Reliable, standardized, strong authentication services have become essential to both corporations and the average person as they conduct more and more everyday online and mobile transactions,” says Kashif Hassan, President of Diversinet. “Since more than one billion people around the world are already carrying mobile phones, it makes sense to leverage popular mobile handsets such as BlackBerry as a vehicle to deliver mobile-optimized strong authentication services.”

MobiSecure Tokens from Diversinet simplify the replacement of costly and complex traditional hard tokens, USB tokens and smart cards for strong authentication in the enterprise environment. In addition, the MobiSecure Token can enable a more secure online experience for mass-market Internet users for services such as Web-based banking and e-commerce. Adding support for BlackBerry will give application providers, mobile network operators and security service providers another tool in their arsenal to develop strong authentication applications.

BlackBerry provides integrated phone, e-mail, text messaging, browser, organizer and corporate data applications in one integrated device, while providing mobile professionals with more ways to stay in touch with work and home. For more information on how the Mobisecure Token operates with the BlackBerry 7100 Series of business phones please go to www.diversinet.com. For more information on the BlackBerry 7100 Series and other BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds, visit www.blackberry.com.

In recent years, the rise in malicious attacks, combined with the growth of mobile computing and the increasing openness of most corporate networks, has increased the need for strong authentication for remote access, user log-in, and single sign-on. Strong authentication, which requires users to possess additional physical hardware in addition to a password, is an essential component in protecting against the various forms of security attacks prevalent today. With more than one billion individuals globally already carrying mobile devices, the mobile phone is a natural and ubiquitous two-factor authenticator.

As a leading mobile authentication service provider, Diversinet provides its customers with cost-effective, mobile-optimized strong authentication products and services that reduce identity theft and improve brand trust by leveraging more than 1.5 billion consumer and enterprise mobile phones as strong authentication tokens. The Diversinet MobiSecure Suite of Tokens and MobiSecure Authentication Service Center (MASC) offerings are available on most intelligent mobile device platforms, including Microsoft, RIM, Symbian, Palm and Java-based phones.

IBP Corporation Inc of Alabama Unexpectedly Authorized the Issuance of 120 Licensee Territories throughout the United States

In a surprise move, IBP Corporation Inc, a Leader in the Transportation Technology Industry, has authorized the use of its Advanced Technology as part of a Nationwide rollout of 120 Independent Business Licensees. Their software includes www.Icantrackit.com and www.LTCquickbid.com among other titles.

(PRWEB) April 21, 2022 -- In an unexpected move today, April 18, 2005, the Board of Directors of IBP Corporation Inc has authorized the use of its advanced web based Logistics applications as the basis for a Business Opportunity rollout on a limited basis. The Board of Directors has limited the scope of this authorization to insure that their software does not saturate the marketplace.

In a phone Interview with Ms. Cheryl Ballard, Director of Business Development for IBP Corporation, the following statements were made "With the current lack of technology driving down the efficiency in the transportation industry, IBP Corporation has determined that the best method to assist the manufactures in reducing the cost of shipping is to allow them free use of our software." When asked further to describe the business model and how it differs from any other current Business Opportunity, Ms. Ballard responded "IBP Corporation focuses in on development efforts to increase efficiency across several different industries. Additionally, we have released some very timely subscription based web sites that will allow the licensee the opportunity to generate substantial cash flow in short term. Some of these sites include www.Epawnauction.com a subscription based auction site that only allows licensed pawnshops to become sellers. This provides a safe environment for the buyer as these are all government registered and regulated pawnshops."

IBP Corporation Inc has stormed on to the business opportunity scene after success in local markets. In visiting their web sites, it is easy to see why their software has become such a force in the logistics industry.

Ms. Ballard further went on to talk about the complete licensee package. According to Ms. Ballard, IBP Licensees will receive substantial training from several of the industries top sales professionals, including herself. Other Notable trainers will be presenting at each training seminar. Additionally, all licensees will receive a custom web site, monthly training, Online national account registration, Annual conferences and significant commission structures on all software packages. To insure the end user ease of use, IBP Corporation Inc utilizes focus groups in various industries. Information from these focus groups is then incorporated into the applications. At the time of this release, we have not been able to find any similar software packages.

Ms. Ballard's final statement spells out the concept in total, "How hard is it to sell a product with a price tag of Free"

Award-winning TracVision A5 and DIRECTV Programming to be Available as Dealer-installed Accessory on Cadillac Escalade SUVs. A ride in a stylish Cadillac Escalade sport utility vehicle just became even more entertaining with today’s announcement that Cadillac dealers throughout the United States will begin offering the award-winning TracVision® A5 automotive satellite TV system from KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) along with DIRECTV® satellite TV programming. Cadillac, a division of General Motors (NYSE: GM), becomes the first automotive brand to offer live satellite TV as an accessory option through authorized dealers. TracVision A5, winner of the 2004 General Motors "Most Innovative Product Design Award," provides in-motion reception of 135+ channels of live, satellite TV programming from DIRECTV, Inc., in vehicles traveling on open roads throughout the continental United States.

(PRWEB) April 21, 2022 -- A ride in a stylish Cadillac Escalade sport utility vehicle just became even more entertaining with today’s announcement that Cadillac dealers throughout the United States will begin offering the award-winning TracVision® A5 automotive satellite TV system from KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) along with DIRECTV® satellite TV programming. Cadillac, a division of General Motors (NYSE: GM), becomes the first automotive brand to offer live satellite TV as an accessory option through authorized dealers. TracVision A5, winner of the 2004 General Motors "Most Innovative Product Design Award," provides in-motion reception of 135+ channels of live, satellite TV programming from DIRECTV, Inc., in vehicles traveling on open roads throughout the continental United States.

"Vehicle personalization is very important to Cadillac customers," observed Jim Taylor, general manager of Cadillac. "The TracVision satellite TV system offers our customers the ultimate rear seat entertainment system. We’ve shown the TracVision to our top dealers and they told us loud and clear that they want this kind of high-end accessory to enhance the appeal of the Escalade."

Speaking about this new offer, KVH President and Chief Executive Officer Martin Kits van Heyningen remarked, "Cadillac has long epitomized the gold standard for American luxury vehicles, with the Cadillac Escalade leading the way. It is a pleasure to be working together with Cadillac and its dealers to bring TracVision and the DirecTV Total ChoiceE® Mobile programming package to Escalade owners around the country. This accessory application at Cadillac is a major milestone in our overall plans to widely offer satellite TV to the light vehicle market."

The TracVision A5 is a low-profile satellite TV antenna designed specifically for passenger vehicles. The 5-inch high TracVision A5 uses KVH’s patented hybrid phased-array technology to create an antenna with a rugged, sleek design suitable for vehicles traveling on open roads across the U.S. The system includes KVH’s ultra low profile TracVision antenna, a 12-volt DirecTV receiver designed for automotive use, an RF remote control, and exclusive access to DirecTV Total ChoiceE® Mobile programming.

"This is a great match among two leading consumer brands and innovative technology from KVH," said Daren Benzi, vice president, sales development and strategy for DIRECTV, Inc. "GM’s Escalade owners typically want the best of premium products and services, and the ability to experience live DIRECTV programming in digital quality picture and sound in the spacious, luxurious environment of a Cadillac Escalade is a highly compelling consumer offering. We look forward to working with Cadillac and KVH on this exciting new initiative."

Introduced September 2003, the TracVision A5 began reaching consumers just as the demand for passenger entertainment systems began to intensify in the automotive marketplace. Passenger entertainment is now among the most popular automotive accessories on the market today, with more than one-third of 2004 model year SUVs and minivans sold in the U.S. equipped with in-vehicle video screens, according to J.D. Power and Associates. Industry analyst Frost & Sullivan projects that by 2011, more than 36 million automobiles in the U.S. will be equipped with video systems and of these, more than 3 million vehicles will be equipped with mobile satellite TV systems.

"To ensure that Cadillac’s dealers and customers receive outstanding support, we worked closely with Cadillac to develop sales and service programs as well as custom installation materials designed specifically for the Cadillac Escalade," explained Robert Riedford, KVH’s director of business development for satellite products. "We also received tremendous support from DIRECTV for this OEM sales opportunity. As a result, we have put in place a program that will enable Cadillac dealers across the country to offer their customers the finest passenger entertainment available in the automotive industry."

INTOTHEBEST ScholarshipFrenzy.com Announces Business of the Year Award Scholarship

Congratulations to Susan Coverston from Azusa Pacific University for winning a $1,000 scholarship and to Cold Stone Creamery for winning the 2004 INTOTHEBEST ScholarshipFrenzy.com Business of the Year Award.

Plainedge, NY (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 20, 2022 -- Congratulations to Susan Coverston from Azusa Pacific University for winning a $1,000 scholarship and to Cold Stone Creamery for winning the 2004 INTOTHEBEST ScholarshipFrenzy.com Business of the Year Award.

Nomination:
Cold Stone Creamery #543 cares not only about its customers, but also about its community. It takes a person with a child's heart to own and operate an ice cream store, and everyone knows children are the most generous type of human beings. I have had the pleasure of working for Cold Stone in High Point, North Carolina, where I have experienced first hand how much this corporation really cares. Cold Stone #543 has gone out of its way to please its customers, and its neighbors, with a great product, and an even better love.

Brian Henry has been involved with fundraising for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Southwest Guilford High School, Southwest Middle School, World Vision's 30 Hour Famine, The Pathways Center, a division of Greensboro Urban Ministry, local church youth groups, the Special Olympics, Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, and other local charities. What's most amazing is Mr. Henry's store has been open for less than a year!

The truth is Cold Stone cares. In a work environment focused on people, it is not a surprise that when those people bring forward a need, Cold Stone jumps into action. Ice cream is the one product that can soften even the hardest heart, because everyone loves it! Thus, the success of the fundraising events is remarkable, everyone is glad to help. With everything Cold Stone has done in such a short time, imagine what will be achieved in ten years! It will be an ice cream revolution!

Cold Stone is one of the fastest-growing ice cream companies in the world, and with everything they do for the communities they're in, it is safe to say we could all use a few more. People like Mr. Henry and his employees bring joy to every child's heart, regardless of whether they are 1 or 100. Every person who enters Cold Stone #543 is treated like royalty, since the customers have made them who they are.

Fortunately, this is one business that is not afraid to give back to those who matter most, the people. In my mind, Cold Stone is worthy to be called the Business of the Year, because it has old-fashioned values intertwined with new-age taste, providing the Ultimate Ice Cream ExperienceT!

Note: Brian Henry no longer works for Cold Stone Creamery #543. Steve Widner is the new manager.

Syntax Groups Celebrates Milestone First Anniversary of Olevia LCD TV Shipments; Announces Market Position, Global Expansion and New Retail Partners

Syntax Groups Rises to Number Three LCD TV Market Share Position in North America for Q4 2004. Syntax commemorates the milestone events that contributed to its rapid success.

City of Industry, CA (PRWEB) April 20, 2022 -- Since commencing shipments a year ago of its high value Olevia(tm) LCD TVs, Syntax Groups Corporation(tm), one of the fastest-growing manufacturers of LCD TVs, rose to the number three market position in North America during Q4 2004, continues its global expansion into Asia, and adds to its portfolio of leading consumer electronics retailers by offering richly featured Olevia LCD TVs at affordable prices.

As noted in a new iSuppli Corporation TV market report published by DigiTimes*, Syntax gained a 7.15% market share in Q4 2004 LCD TV shipments in North America to attain the third rank position, up from its previous position as number four in Q3 2004. Similarly, in a recent report by IDC**, Syntax achieved the number three USA market position for LCD TV shipments in Q4 2004, plus Syntax scored a 'top 10' worldwide LCD TV position in Q4 2004 according to both IDC and DisplaySearch***. As a result of the company’s first three quarters of sales in 2004, Syntax has achieved increasing market share gains for shipments of its flagship 20”, 27” and 30” Olevia LCD TVs.

“We view these industry accolades as defining moments in Syntax's history and a testament to our goal to make LCD TVs affordable and attainable for all American families,” said James Li, Chief Executive Officer of Syntax Groups. “We are also deeply gratified for the support from our manufacturing partner, Taiwan Kolin, our suppliers, and our retail channel alliances.”

Success Accelerated by Strong CE Retail Channel
A key factor in Syntax's early market success in North America has been the strength of its partnerships with leading consumer electronics retailers. Instead of taking years to build, Syntax has firmly established a robust channel sales program that today includes Internet retailers, regional and national retail chain stores, and notable distributors and resellers. Last year, Syntax commenced Olevia shipments with Internet retailers including TigerDirect, PC Connection and PC Mall, and has since added programs with Amazon.com, Buy.com, BuyRite, eCost, Computers4Sure, Staples.com, Target.com, RadioShack.com plus numerous authorized resellers through Syntax's distributors BDI Laguna, D&H;, Petra, SED International and Sistemas2000 (Mexico). Throughout 2004 and into 2005, Syntax rapidly added popular national and regional retail stores including Staples, CompUSA, hhgregg, Micro Center, Fry's Electronics, American TV, Dakota TV, DataVision, RCS Experience, CompuSmart (Hartco Canada), CyberDiscount Warehouse, Beach Camera, AVS Buying Group, and NATM Group members ABC Warehouse, Nebraska FurnitureMart and RC Willey.

Boscov's & Meijer Added to Syntax Partners
To further extend the visibility of the Syntax's Olevia brand throughout the Midwest and the Mid Atlantic United States, Syntax most recently has added regional retail partners Boscov's and Meijer. The fourth member of the NATM Buying Corporation to offer Syntax's Olevia LCD TVs, Boscov's will carry Syntax's LCD TVs in its 41 stores across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland. Last year Meijer, a family owned and operated grocery and general merchandise supercenter operating 165 stores throughout Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio, celebrated 70 years of service in their communities. Meijer is continuing that service by enhancing the quality and selection in their stores with products like Olevia.

Syntax Continues Global Expansion in Asia
Rapidly expanding its global presence, Syntax Groups has firmly established the Syntax Hong Kong/China office. Since its launch late in 2004, Syntax Hong Kong/China has secured customers including Broadway Photo Supply Ltd., Chung Yuen Electrical Co. Ltd., CMK Electrical Store, Wing Sing Photo Supplies Co. Ltd., ESDLife, Tai Lin Radio Service Ltd., and 3C Digital. In Q1 2005, Syntax shipped over 5,500 Olevia LCD TVs within the greater China regions.

To further expand its operations in Southeast Asia, Syntax and partner Taiwan Kolin have formed the joint venture Syntax Philippines office to service markets including the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.

Olevia LCD TV Product Roadmap Continues to Expand
When Syntax broke into the LCD TV market a year ago with its Olevia brand, it raised the industry’s competitive bar by not only offering some of the most affordably priced products, but also by including leading specifications that other vendors either charged premium prices for or didn’t offer. One year later, Syntax has broadened its LCD TV product line to include 20”, 26”, 27”, 30”, 32” and 37” models.

Scheduled for availability this summer are new 37” and 42” ATSC/QAM models with HD tuners built-in. Additionally, Syntax will continue to incorporate its proprietary new iDEA technology into future Olevia models to deliver superior image enhancements.

About Syntax Groups
Headquartered in Southern California, Syntax Groups Corporation (www.syntaxgroups.com) is a complete vertically integrated R&D;, manufacturing and channel sales-driven multinational company of high value consumer electronics and computer technology convergence products for the post-PC era.

Kodak Tops the List of Digital Camera Brands Preferred by Women

A new Lyra survey examines the photo-printing behavior of U.S.-based digital photographers. Lyra’s Digital Photography Advisory Service is an online competitive research service for marketing and product managers in the digital camera, photo-quality printer, and online photo-service industry.

Newtonville, MA (PRWEB) April 20, 2022 -- According to Lyra Research’s 2004 U.S. Digital Photography Survey, more than 20 percent of women surveyed use a Kodak digital camera, while only 10 percent of men made Kodak their brand of choice. Men appear to prefer Canon digital cameras, with almost 17 percent of male respondents using that brand.

“The explanation is that women in general are less comfortable with technology and therefore are more attracted to trusted brands,” says Charles LeCompte, president of Lyra and director of Lyra’s Digital Photography Advisory Service. “ And the biggest brand in photography is, of course, Kodak.”

The primary goal of the survey was to examine the photo-printing behavior of a representative sample of U.S.-based digital photographers. The survey also asked users about many other issues, including their photo-taking, photo-storage, and photo-sharing habits and their use of camera phones. Further gender differences identified include that women own less equipment in general than men, do less with the equipment they own, and prefer products that are technologically the simplest. Perhaps most interestingly, women prefer printing direct from their camera or direct from a docking station. At least some of these differences can be attributed to the busy lives that many women lead—many juggle child and family care with taking care of their homes, running home businesses, and/or working full-time jobs for others, all of which limits their time to explore and adopt more complex technologies.

This information can be found in Lyra’s Digital Photography Advisory Service, an online competitive research service for marketing and product managers in the digital camera, photo-quality printer, and online photo-service industry. Lyra recently announced that a new team headed by Lyra President Charles LeCompte will manage all content and client support for the service, including industry trend analyses, primary market research, and product forecasts for digital camera, photo-printing, and online photo-service markets. Steve Hoffenberg and Larry Jamieson, senior analysts and experts on digital cameras and photo printers, respectively, advise and contribute to the service’s direction and content. Suzanne Boozer, a research analyst for Lyra, contributes written analysis to the service. More information on the Digital Photography Advisory Service can be found at www.lyra.com.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 20, 2022 -- Signametrics introduced its newest 7 ½ digit PXI/cPCI Digital Multimeters, offering advance functionality and fastest measurement speeds. Signametrics’ engineering leveraged newly available technologies to implement new advanced triggering capabilities, superior measurement speeds, and exceptional accuracies, surpassing any existing product in this class.

The SMX2064 boasts high measurement rates up to 20,000 reading/second and low DC current measurement ranges down to 50pA. With true 7-1/2 digit accuracies, new advanced scope-like triggering, and extended DC and resistance measurement ranges. The two new PXI DMMs are aimed at satisfying the needs of advanced test systems in diverse applications such as: Avionics, Automotive, Semiconductors, Storage, Industrial, components and sensor manufacturing, chemical manufacturing, food engineering, and others.

The SMX2064
Like its PCI predecessor, the SMX2064 is a full-featured 7-1/2 digit PXI/cPCI DMM. It boasts 24,000,000 counts dynamic range, translating to resolutions of 10nV, and a wide workload due to its extensive measurement functionality. The SMX2064 offers the most advanced functionality in plug-in DMMs: 6-wire Guarded resistance, inductance and capacitance measurements (LCR), Frequency and timing measurements, thermocouple and RTD measurements, and V & I sourcing. In addition, the SMX2064 sports new scope-like advanced triggering, extended DC current and resistance measurement ranges, and accurate Leakage measurement with programmable DC source.

“The large number of current sources designed into the SMX2064 provide the widest range and highest resolution of any plug-in DMM, making it the only plug-in Ohm-meter measuring from micro-ohms to Giga-ohms.” says Tee Sheffer, president of Signametrics Corporation. “Our SMX2064 and SMX2060 bring about a new standard in accuracy, speed, and functionality to plug-in Test and Measurement systems, that is unparalleled even by costly bench-top and VXI digital multimeters”.

The SMX2060

Digital Camera Market Booms

Online resource for photography tips, a web-based photography school and professionals on hand to give advice to digital enthusiasts

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 19, 2022 -- Most of the major technological breakthroughs in consumer electronics have been part of a larger breakthrough: converting analog information into digital information. The digital camera is one of the most remarkable instances of this shift.

While they may never replace film cameras, the market is growing by leaps and bounds. In the year 2000 digital cameras were the hottest item in consumer electronics and by the end of 2002 23 million U.S. households – nearly 20 percent – owned one. Sales are expected to increase by 13 percent in 2005 and the Photo Marketing Association International says 52% of households will own a digital camera by the end of 2005.

Samy Kamienowicz, who founded Samy's Camera in 1976 after working for his uncle's camera store for 18 years, has experienced this change first hand. When he opened his first store on Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles, CA., Samy set out to become the ultimate resource for the professional and amateur photographer.

“My idea was to have a full-service store, carrying an extensive array of photographic equipment and supplies,” says Samy. The Samys Camera stores have long been recognized as one of the premiere resources for photographic equipment, expertise and photography tips in Southern California. Now this expertise is available online.

“Since most people are turning to the Internet to find information, we built a website to make these resources available to professional and amateur photographers everywhere,” says Samy.

The Samys website offers a Web Photography School with online photography classes that covers subjects from basic start up, lighting and capturing the perfect shot to shooting great portraiture.

The site also has a bulletin board where staff experts, other photographers and professionals, like Los Angeles based David McCullough, offer assistance to photographers wanting to upgrade their skills. McCullough has been shooting people, product, fashion and architecture for 14 years and has created a breathtaking gallery of fine art photographs. McCullough’s Photography Tips are a special feature of the Samys website.

“Photography has been a journey of exploration - not only of the world around me, but of the world within me,” says McCullough. “The online photo school, forums and bulletin board on this website are a great resource for photographers.”

The site also offers a wealth of information about how to choose a digital camera, accessories, lighting and computer components to ensure you have everything you need to capture those special images.

Reversica’s New Plasma/LCD Concealment Hardware is “Like Adding another Room to Your House.”

Design uses unusual ‘rotaxial’ motion to flip a 50” flat screen TV 180° and reveal a bookcase on the other side – all in a slim 18” case. One minute you’re watching TV and – spin the Gyre around – the next minute your home theater is now a library and you’re ready for book club night. The space could also be used for DVDs or as a display for collectibles.

High Point, NC (PRWEB) April 16, 2022 -- A California company is turning heads in the home entertainment furniture market with the introduction of their Gyre 6300 flat screen concealment hardware system.

“It’s like adding another room to your house,” said Cynthia Miyashita, president of Berkeley Mills, with a smile when she saw the utility of the Gyre turning a home entertainment room into a private library.

With a motion described as ‘rotaxial’ by Reversica’s CEO and the product’s inventor, Bill Stone, the motion hardware allows a 50” plasma or LCD screen television to twist completely around revealing a bookcase with 12 linear feet of space. One minute you’re watching TV and – spin the Gyre around – the next minute your home theater is now a library and you’re ready for book club night. The space could also be used for DVDs or as a display for collectibles.

Use Space Better
The Gyre doesn’t pivot like a Lazy Susan but swings out, tracing a teardrop pattern and returning to its original location, only reversed. Because of its unique design, all this takes place in a case about 18” thick. Many are surprised the case can turn around in something so slim.

“Calling the Gyre’s motion ‘rotaxial’ is the best way to describe its unique spinning and gliding action,” said Stone.

“Everyone who has seen it agrees,” Stone said, “you can’t describe the Gyre’s elegant motion with words alone. It’s unexpected and familiar all at once. You have to see it in action.”

Motion by Reversica
The Gyre 6300 will be on display at Century Furniture’s showroom at the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, NC, From April 14-20, 2005.

A video of the Gyre 6300 in motion can be found at http://www.reversica.com/press/

Fuji Novel Batteries Announces Private Label Partnership Opportunities / International Battery Manufacturer Focuses on North American Markets

Fuji Novel Batteries, one of the largest manufacturers of batteries for portable electronics and digital cameras worldwide, announces significant new opportunities for retailers to introduce their own line of high quality private label batteries that equal or outperform the leading national brands, while delivering significant margins to the retailer.

(PRWEB) April 16, 2022 -- Fuji Novel Batteries, one of the largest manufacturers of batteries for portable electronics and digital cameras worldwide, announces significant new opportunities for retailers to introduce their own line of high quality private label batteries that equal or outperform the leading national brands, while providing significant margins for the retailer.


“The private label battery category is exploding across the full spectrum of mass market retailers,” notes Russ Bongiorno, Vice President of Marketing at Fuji Novel Batteries. “With Fuji Novel, retailers have the opportunity to offer private label batteries as a part of their individualized marketing strategy, enabling them to claim higher gross profit margins and profits at competitive retail price points as they gain trademark equity and reduce capital outlays.”

Private label batteries now comprise over 10% of the overall disposable alkaline battery market, and it is one of the fastest growing segments within the private label market. Industry analysts estimate that the North American market for disposable alkaline batteries is approaching $4 billion annually.

Fuji Novel is recognized as one of the world's leading and most competitive private label battery suppliers. With over 50 years of experience in delivering its own branded line as well as private label brands for some of the world’s most recognized retailers, Fuji Novel has the capacity and distribution strength to meet the production demands of retailers across the Americas for high-quality Alkaline and heavy duty dry cell batteries.

“As consumers’ brand loyalties migrate from product loyalty to destination loyalty, retailers like Wal-Mart, Rite-Aid, and Best Buy are commanding stronger and stronger loyalty,” says Bongiorno. “With this migration comes an increased consumer willingness to choose among several different brands – creating significant inroads for well-positioned private label brands.”

The essential ingredient of a successful private label program is in reassuring both the retailer and the consumer that the quality of the product will equal or exceed the national brand choice, according to Bongiorno. Independent tests done by the well-regarded ACTS Testing Labs that indicate Fuji Novel batteries yielded comparable performance, and in some applications, actually outperformed both of the leading national brands.

Fuji Novel offers retailers several options in selecting the SKUs that will perform best within their individualized retail environment. The most common private label items for food and drug, according to Bongiorno, are the four-pack AA and AAA, one-pack 9 volt, and two-pack C and D alkaline products, which can be offered from 20% to 30% off of the retail for leading national brands. Or, if they prefer, Fuji Novel enables retailers to offer a “value program,” offering larger packs than the traditional brand packs.

“In such a hotly contested category that includes branded and private label products vying for precious retail space, Fuji Novel’s focus is to deliver the products that will drive profits for both large and small retailers in the coming years,” contends Bongiorno.

All Fuji Novel Alkaline batteries offer superior performance characteristics. Today's portable consumer electronic products like digital cameras and MP3 players are more sophisticated and require more power. As today's high-tech handheld electronics incorporate higher-speed digital processing, their hunger for battery power grows dramatically. Therefore the demands on portable power sources, especially Alkaline batteries, are skyrocketing.

State-of-the-art techniques and materials enable Fuji Novel to produce batteries of the highest quality and longest life to meet the needs of today’s consumer electronic devices. Through the use of an innovative technology that incorporates an advanced cathode material with more electrolytes in its Alkaline batteries, Fuji Novel ushered in a new era of high performance portable power.

Fuji Novel meets the highest manufacturing standards, ensuring superior product performance worldwide. All Fuji Novel branded and private label batteries undergo rigorous quality control tests that ensure exceptional operation and superior consistency, providing outstanding value for consumers every hour of every day in a myriad of portable power uses all over the world.

For over 50 years, Fuji Novel Batteries has been recognized as a market leader and innovator in the hyper-competitive battery industry. Fuji Novel pioneered the launch of Carbon Zinc battery technology in 1950, and was first to develop and market a line of Manganese batteries, launching the product line in 1969. An environmentally-conscious company, Fuji Novel was the first battery manufacturer to produce 100% Mercury Free Formula and Cadmium-free batteries. Fuji Novel manufacturers and markets batteries under its own internationally-recognized brand, and is the leading manufacturer of private-label batteries worldwide.

Stop Smoking Laser Clinic Frees Teens from Addiction

Freedom Laser Therapy discounts their quit smoking laser treatment to help young adults

(PRWEB) April 15, 2022 -- An innovative low-level laser quit smoking treatment used in Europe and Canada over the past 30 years is now available in the United States. Freedom Laser Therapy, a leading practioner of laser therapy treatment focuses on the physical, psychological, and detoxification of breaking a smoker’s nicotine addiction. Freedom clients are continually referring others smokers to the clinic, because of the simplicity of quitting using the treatment.


Craig Nabat, President of Freedom Laser Therapy, wants young adults to have the same ease of quitting smoking as Freedom’s adult clients. Nabat initiated a company wide policy that young adults showing proof of being under 21 years old can receive the $399 laser therapy treatment for only $99.

Nabat is passionate about his company's mission of freeing the world from nicotine addiction, so much that he is now focusing on the youth of America. Presently, 22% of high school students are smokers. According to tobacco research reports the industry is earning over 1.8 billion from underage sales of cigarettes to America’s youth.

According to the American Lung Association 90% of all smokers begin smoking before the age of 21. Even more alarming is that 3,000 new teenagers per day are daily experimenting with smoking; and addiction can occur within as little as two weeks. Some reasons why kids usually light up are as followed: To fit in, to be part of a group, to look cool, pure experimentation, they have friends who smoke, to be rebellious, to look older, a family member smokes, influenced by tobacco advertising geared towards them, or emulating a favorite celebrity who is seen smoking in a movie.

When young people begin smoking, they are not truly aware of the seriousness of their experimentation. Unfortunately young adults do not realize how easy it is to become addicted to nicotine, nor do they look at the health risks associated, such as cancer, emphysema and even death. In addition, young smokers cannot conceptualize the approximate $1,800 a year expense that they will encounter when they become addicted to cigarettes.

Nabat, a former smoker himself says, "Smoking education awareness campaigns for youths is only half the battle. Young smokers need to have an effective resource available to break their physical addiction to nicotine.” “Laser therapy is the easiest solution to painlessly break a smoker’s nicotine addiction, which may encourage young adults and teens to quit smoking sooner.”

Mashita Electronics Adds Exclusive Online Distributor, "Solutions" for Watt-Minder, Appliance Cost and Current Meter

The Watt-Minder, a low cost tool to help consumers measure their energy usage at home and in the office, is now exclusively offered via the nationwide e-commerce retailer Solutions, as its exclusive e-tailer. The Watt-Minder in concert with the U.S. Department of Energy, via its Energy Star program, can work together to reduce home and office energy costs.

(PRWEB) April 15, 2022 -- Mashita Electronics announces the selection of “Solutions®” online retailer as the newest distributor of the “Watt-Minder” Appliance Cost & Current Meter. Vickie Desofi, Manager of Catalog, and Internet Sales for Mashita Electronics lauded the venture as an important step in the introduction of a new product into the consumer market. Solutions® is currently the exclusive online retailer for the Watt-Minder 90100G.

“The Watt-Minder is an innovative product”, says Desofi, and it requires a trusted marketer like Solutions to carry this type of product to the consumer. The Watt-Minder measures the consumption of electrical appliances and presents the cost by the hour, month, and year.

“The potential benefits are two-fold”, explains Desofi first, the consumer can get an understanding of the cost of appliance operation using variables such as timer settings, temperature settings, and over all appliance efficiency. Secondly, as consumers set, use, and replace appliances the combined effect is to reduce the energy load on our power grid, and thus help in the stabilization and efficiency, and thus the cost of delivering electrical power to society.

The Watt-Minder was first introduced in Fall 2004. It is currently offered for sale at home improvement, hardware, electronic parts and aquarium supply stores. The Watt-Minder carries the ENERGY STAR seal from the Environmental Protection Agency, a division of the U.S. Department of Energy. Once you determine the energy hogs in your home or office look for the ENERGY STAR to identify the most energy efficient replacements.

Virginia Sports Hall of Fame & Museum Uses SLS Loudspeakers for Multi-Media Theater

Leading Sports Venue Selects SLS Speakers to Provide Complete Theater Experience

Springfield, MO (PRWEB) April 15, 2022 -- SLS International, Inc. (OTCBB: SITI) announced today that The Virginia Sports Hall of Fame and Museum has installed a new, state-of-the-art SLS loudspeaker system in its new 125-seat multi-media theater. The new 5.1 surround sound speakers will provide clear and superior sound quality throughout the museum's intro theater, which is scheduled to play a pre-recorded show every half hour.

Randy Vaughn, president of AE Systems (formerly Ambassador Enterprises) and president of NSCA, worked with a number of professionals on the design team, spearheading the audio design and installation. "We recommended the SLS HT1800 series because we knew it would give the complete theater experience. The sound detail is amazing, especially with the incredible bass and high end."

The HT1800 series consists of five HT28R speakers and two PSS12 subwoofers. The HT28R is a dual-woofer version of the HT8R and is recommended for use when high output is a requirement. The additional 8" woofer makes the HT28R well suited for commercial sound or larger home theatre installations. The PSS12 powered subwoofer provides a ground shaking bass, powered by a built-in 300-watt amplifier. The 12" subwoofer has a very smooth and flat response to well below 30 Hz. Complete with a selectable and defeatable crossover, low and high level inputs, and feed through connections, the PSS12 produces very warm and musical low frequencies.

"Since we were dealing with a large design team, there were many great ideas that we discussed in the boardroom," said Vaughan. "With all the top-of-the-line equipment that we were able to install, the multi-media theater can be used for other occasions such as fundraisers with movies and live events as a high definition theater."

Established in 1972, the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame and Museum has been proud to honor Virginia's contributions to the world of sports as the Commonwealth's official sports hall and museum. On April 22, 2005, the Hall will open its new 35,000 square-foot facility in Portsmouth, featuring an updated Hall of Honor, computer databases, a dynamic digital theater, Campus Champions exhibits focused on Virginia's colleges and universities, and the Game Time interactive hall with hands-on fun for the whole family. Besides the racing simulators, other interactive exhibits at the new Hall will feature baseball, football, basketball, soccer, health and fitness, and broadcasting.

"We are very excited to have our products selected for such a significant installation," says Jeff Lowry, director of marketing for SLS Loudspeakers. "Delivery of high quality surround sound audio for critical listening environments is of paramount interest to both audio professionals and audiophiles. The HT1800 system gives the discerning listener a new, higher level, surround sound experience offering the clarity and impact expected from SLS."

Are you providing for your product design teams success?

Do you believe that since your design team has all the tools they need and you have formal program management in place they have what they need to be successful? Designers are dreamers and creators by nature and that must be fostered. They key to getting the most from your team is funneling the creativity into specific deliverables to meet your business needs. Design tools will not provide this focus and program management is far too removed from the design details. You must create processes within design for managing the details of design execution to augment what your formal design tools provide.

Chandler, AZ April 11, 2022 – You want your design team to be a creative, allowing innovative new products to fill you product portfolio. You also want then to execute to the plan to bring these innovative products to market per the plan. The mix of a highly creative nature rolled in with skills to execute to plan does not come naturally to a team. What tends to happen is we assume that tools and program management cover the execution details while allowing the creative nature of the team to flow. This assumption is rarely valid. You must explicitly stimulate the team’s execution skills.

Design tools will not manage all of design processes and program management does not offer the depth into the design details to be affective in the particulars. You must manage the design from within, concentrating on the details of interactions and deliverables between designers and the design team’s external customers such as test, product and marketing functions. The processes to manage the design execution are your “tools” and they must be developed within the design team. Examples of these process tools would include travelers, checklists, engineering specification content, team meetings, specification change management, best practices, lessons learned, review procedures and specification closure procedures.

The key in development of these tools for managing your design process is that it is joint effort between the design team, test, product engineering and program management. Everyone on the product development team has needs and the entire team must reach consensus on who is doing what and the specific deliverables of each step. Consensus first followed up by the necessary documentation “tools” to confirm the plan. Ferret out any issues, get them on the table, address them and build up your tools to remove them as a continuing issue. Do not assume that the formal design tools are managing all the details of your entire design process.

Americans and Their Dogs

Americans are more attached to their dogs than ever. Dogs have their own fashions, bedding, and health products. The same people who sell you collectibles, jewelry, lingerie, and household items, also want to sell dog products.

(PRWEB) April 14, 2022 -- Americans have always loved their dogs, nothing new about that. But in recent years the attachment between Americans and their dogs seems to have reached even an even stronger level. But why? Some think it may be because we have become more insulated, perhaps tied closer to our homes than ever before. We have home theatres, computers, huge screen HDTV, etc. We shop from home and more parents than ever are home schooling their children; the reasons for going outside the home are becoming ever fewer. Just about anything can be done from home. And there’s nothing like a family pet, usually a dog or cat, to make a house feel like a home.

Americans delight in spoiling their dogs. At Paul’s Mercantile http://paul.weship2u.com/ they will find everything they need to do just that. This online general store carries everything for dogs; from toys to clothes to beds to health products. Rover isn’t the only family member who will be able to shop at Paul’s, they carry over 7,000 items. The inventory includes jewelry, collectibles, electronics, lingerie, pets, and household items. Prices are rock bottom, shipping is prompt, and hassles are minimized. Why bother with heavy traffic and harassed clerks?

Online commerce is a big part of life in 21st century America. Just as the family dog is growing in importance, online merchants like Paul's Mercantile at http://paul.weship2u.com/ are becoming an increasingly important part of the new face of America.

Digital Video Products Inc. (DVP) Outlines Innovative Strategies to Market and Support Amalgamated Video International Inc. (AVI) 2005 Product Line

Digital Video Products Inc. (DVP) today outlined some innovative strategies to market and support Amalgamated Video International Inc. (AVI) 2005 product line. DVP will focus on marketing to customers who traditionally were not able to afford quality video production and expanding revenue streams for media producers. DVP will participate with AVI in showcasing the AVI 2005 product line at this years NAB show (Booth SL 5629) in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 19th thru 22nd.

Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) April 13, 2022 -- Digital Video Products Inc. (DVP) outlined some innovative strategies today to market and support Amalgamated Video International Inc. (AVI) 2005 product line. DVP, a new startup company, is led by business executive Jim Roberts who has over 20 years of experience in information technology, consumer product development, entertainment distribution, and managing startup companies. “When I first saw AVI’s Producer Mark II in action last year, I said ‘That’s it!’ a solution to create, and broadly distribute powerful visual messages to a wide audience at a moderate cost.” said Jim Roberts, CEO of DVP. “Here are products that speak video producers’ language and can enable whole new revenue streams. They can go just about anywhere, setup quickly, capture and edit content, and distribute it for a much lower cost then ever before.”

Earlier this year, DVP formed a strategic alliance with AVI to handle marketing of AVI products, and expand support for its dealer network. DVP plans include forming partnerships with educational and faith-based consortiums to accelerate product into the market. Dealers who currently service the needs of media producers and rental houses will be provided with incentives to showcase and sell the AVI product line. Training on equipment, and approaches to exploit new revenue streams will be easily available onsite and online. Roberts adds, “Our products are enablers. We enable the user to increase productivity, work smarter, create better visual communications and leverage creative talent.”

The alliance calls for a dual brand strategy, an AVI-DVP approach. AVI will participate primarily in research and development activities to deliver prototype systems, and DVP will be responsible for overseeing the manufacturing, marketing and distribution support for the products. “At AVI, we think inside the box, we listen to the video producers needs, and deliver affordable portable production units that are reliable and easy to use,” states Ron Sheckler, Founder and Chairman of AVI. “DVP is thinking across all the boxes, and partnering with our customers to bring the best solutions and profit-enablers to market,” adds Jim Roberts. “The attendees at NAB will be there to see who is spreading the seeds for the next wave in video production and content distribution. AVI, with its 2005 product line, is positioned to lead this next wave.”

About AVI, Inc.
Amalgamated Video International, Inc. (known as AVI) develops, produces and markets award winning portable audio-visual production equipment for the professional user.

American Aerospace Controls (AAC), a leading manufacturer of AC and DC current, voltage, power, and frequency transducers, recently achieved AS9100 and ISO9000:2000 certifications.

Farmingdale, NY (PRWEB) April 13, 2022 -- American Aerospace Controls (AAC), a leading manufacturer of AC and DC current, voltage, power, and frequency transducers, recently achieved AS9100 and ISO9000:2000 certifications. The AS9100 certification, which is an enhancement of the renowned ISO9001 certification, places special emphasis on requirements for the aerospace industry, including MIL-Q specifications. The ISO9000:2000 certification is recognized as one of the premier standards for quality management in several different industries. The company received accreditation in December 2004, following a successful surveillance audit by its chosen registrar, Perry Johnson Registrars, Inc.

Ruth Roberts Gitlin, President of AAC noted, “We place significant emphasis on providing our customers with high quality transducers, and achieving these newest ISO certifications puts us in an elite group of qualified suppliers. In fact, most of the major aircraft engine manufacturers are already requiring registration to AS9100.”

The ISO 9000:2000 standard has become an international reference for quality management requirements in business-to-business dealings. It focuses on the customer's quality requirements and applicable regulatory requirements, while aiming to enhance customer satisfaction, and achieve continual improvement of a company’s performance in pursuit of these objectives.

The AS9100 standard was developed by a committee of procurement, purchasing, and quality executives from major U.S. aerospace manufacturers as a way to reduce defects in the supplier chain; continually improve quality; boost customer satisfaction; and considerably reduce the number of hours spent on audits, requirements and documentation. Aerospace industry suppliers and subcontractors now need to comply with a single aerospace standard that is accepted throughout the industry.

"We are taking a leadership position to promote these very important initiatives and to follow environmentally responsible practices. The fact that we can deliver lead-free “Green” products without any performance or quality compromises is an added benefit to our partners and customers. This practice is also at the core of ATP’s corporate culture,"

Prototyping a Secure Multipurpose, Mobile Chip

A powerful, high-capacity chip currently under development has the potential to revolutionise daily life, doing away with many of the identity documents, credit cards and passwords people have to use each day.

(PRWEB) April 10, 2022 -- Due to end in June, the IST programme-funded project SM-PAYSOC has so far created a working prototype of the chip packaged in a smartcard, which in the future could also be incorporated into a USB token or a SIM card.


It allows users to access services and carry out online transactions wirelessly from a mobile phone or PDA, or from a desktop PC or public card reader with fixed-line Internet access. User authentication procedures employing Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) ensure the security of the data on the chip, which could include personal identity information or credit card and bank details.

“The SM-PAYSOC token is a secure personal repository of information that you can plug in and use anywhere on multiple platforms to obtain multiple services,” explains project coordinator Alberto Bianchi at AMTEC-Selenia Communications in Italy. “The user is the owner of the token and can use it without constraints, permitting high mobility and secure access to information and services. Unlike most smartcards on the market today which have 64KB or less memory, our token has 16-128MB of nonvolatile memory.”

The services it offers could be either in the private or public domain, as trials due to be conducted in Spain and Italy later this month plan to show.

“It could be used by citizens to pay taxes at their local council, students could use it to register remotely for exams or a person could obtain a digital prescription from a doctor and buy the medications at a pharmacy using the chip,” Bianchi says. “We believe it is the first time a chip has been designed for such a comprehensive array of applications.”

In the view of the project partners’ the highest demand is in the banking sector, which will probably be the first industry to use multi-service, multi-platform chips on a wide scale.

“Banks want to be able to offer more services and to do so with greater ease,” the coordinator notes. “In that sense banks and other service providers benefit from increased efficiency.”

On the other hand, end-users gain by having all their information in a single place.

“When we questioned people about a device such as this, the response was overwhelmingly positive, with many saying that they have too many cards to carry around and too many passwords to remember,” Bianchi says. “The chip was therefore designed from a user-centred approach.”

Fujitsu Lays the Foundations for Strengthened Commitment in Europe

In a recent ceremony in Langen, Germany, Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) strengthened its commitment to Europe, as the foundation stone was laid for its new, purpose-built, European headquarters. The company will move from its current location in Dreieich-Buchschlag on December 15th 2005.

(PRWEB) April 9, 2022 -- In a recent ceremony in Langen, Germany, Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) strengthened its commitment to Europe, as the foundation stone was laid for its new, purpose-built, European headquarters. The company will move from its current location in Dreieich-Buchschlag on December 15th 2005.


Present at the ceremony were Langen town representatives, the builders, the architects and FME's President Mr Shimpei Hirata, who commented, "Langen is an ideal location for us and the purpose-designed offices will allow us to develop our business more efficiently. This move underpins our commitment to the European electronics industry, which has never been stronger."

To mark the occasion, a time capsule was placed beneath the foundation stone, containing four of FME's key electronic devices, comprising a 32-bit automotive microcontroller, a 'Coral' Graphic Display Controller, an ASIC used in high-speed fibre optic networking and a SmartMPEG™ evaluation board. These devices were designed or defined in Europe and symbolise the foundation upon which FME's core business will be based for the future.

The move to new premises, with a floor area of 7600m2, will provide FME with a building that has been designed to meet the company's exact requirements for the foreseeable future. Situated on a newly developed business park in Langen, near Frankfurt, the building known as ‘Fujitsu Rhein-Main Campus’, is only 10 minutes drive from Frankfurt airport.

180 FME employees will be located here, of which the majority are employed in design, engineering or applications functions. 40 employees from other Fujitsu companies - Fujitsu Services GmbH, Fujitsu Laboratories Europe and Shinko Electronics Limited - will also be relocated here.

With the move taking place during FME's 25th year in Europe, the company's strengthening commitment to the European market is further underlined.

FME focuses on markets and applications including automotive, multimedia, networking/telecoms, mobile communications, digital-audio and industrial & home appliances. The new building will house the company's Microcontroller, ASIC, and RF design centres, and the Multimedia Development Centre, where new products are researched, designed and developed.

Surge Protector Manufacturer Announces New Model Lines

BITS Limited, a leading surge protector manufacturer, announces new models of their Smart Strip Power Strip, a surge protector with a superior auto-switch design that saves time and money.

(PRWEB) April 8, 2022 -- BITS Limited, a leading surge protector manufacturer, announced additional models of their Smart Strip Power Strip. The surge protector automatically switches on and off computer equipment, peripherals, and other electronic equipment, thus saving time, money, and energy. The new models have the same auto-switching capability as the original Smart Strip, but offer consumers more options for protecting their electronics.

“The features included on our surge protectors are of the highest quality,” said Russell Barton, President of BITS Limited. “We designed a product that we would want to use in our own homes and offices.”

The Smart Strip Power Strip saves time and reduces energy bills by turning off all peripherals that are plugged into the surge protector. Its design has up to ten carefully spaced outlets to accommodate different-sized plugs. The surge protector eliminates wasteful energy use and protects electronic equipment from sudden, damaging energy spikes.

The new models of the Smart Strip surge protector are the LCG5 and the SCG series. The LCG5 has 2875 joules of three-way surge protection and also offers additional protection for coaxial and telephone lines. The SCG models are a more compact version of the Smart Strip and have seven outlets. These models round out the Smart Strip product line with the same auto-switching technology.

“Expanding our Smart Strip product line means that our customers will now have more options in finding the surge protector that works best for them,” said Barton.

In addition to a thirty-day trial on their surge protectors, BITS Limited offers a money-back guarantee if the customer is not completely satisfied with the surge protector. To purchase the surge protector or to learn more about the benefits of the Smart Strip, visit www.SmartStrip.net.

About the Smart Strip Power Strip
The Smart Strip surge protector utilizes 2225 joules, 84,000 amps, and 130 Volt three-way protection. It also features a 15 amp circuit breaker, superior EMI/RFI filtering, ten outlets, and is wall mountable in four different ways. The Smart Strip uses a patent-pending safety monitoring circuit that monitors the status of the entire surge protector and the ground.

About BITS Limited
BITS Limited was founded in 1986 by brothers Bruce and Russell Barton. BITS Limited switched its focus from service and maintenance of diagnostic medical equipment to engineering solutions in 2001. Rocom (China) and Rotech (USA) were subcontracted to help with production design and manufacturing of the Smart Strip surge protector. These two companies were chosen because their leadership in the areas of design and manufacturing of surge protectors complemented the vision of BITS Limited.

Unique New Programmer for the Popular PIC Microcontroller in a Key Fob Package

Kanda have released a key fob programmer to support the PIC microcontroller range. This programmer uses “One button operation”, which means that it is ideal for unskilled operators to do In System Programming. This simplifies field updates of your products or systems and gives you flexibility on the production line.

(PRWEB) April 7, 2022 -- Kanda are specialists in designing and manufacturing tools for electronics engineers. All our tools have the same design philosophy – they must be cost effective and easy to use. Our new Key Fob mini-programmer for the popular PIC microcontroller follows these rules and it is the simplest programmer available.


The key fob programmer is literally that, as it comes in a car key fob case. This makes it very small, light and portable, as well being really simple. If you can unlock your car, you can use this programmer. All you have to do is plug it into a target circuit and press the button. If the light stays green, programming was successful, a red light means there was a problem – what could be easier than that?

The key fob programmer is first loaded from the PC using simple software and a printer port interface. Once it is loaded, it is completely portable and can be used anywhere. To change your data, such as the PIC device type or the file to program, just reload it from the PC as many times as you like.

Once loaded, the key fob programmer can be used where you want, not where you have a PC. This makes it ideal for use in the field or on the production line. If you need to upgrade your products or systems after they are in service or customize them on the production line, the key fob programmer is ideal. Due to its simple operation, unskilled operators can use it without making mistakes. So, if you don’t want programming errors, you don’t have skilled staff or you don’t want to go on a visit, the key fob programmer provides the answer.

Here are a few comments from our customers about the key fob programmer:
“I use it for easy field upgrades on our electronic control project”
“We use the keyfob on our production line to avoid having a PC on the line.”
“We can upgrade an end user by mailing a keyfob.”
“Our remote monitoring systems are programmed using a key fob as the skill level of the person doing the programming can be much lower (you can’t make a lot of mistakes if you just need to push a button).”

Eliminating Lag Time: The Last Mile in Creating a Real-Time Enterprise

Enterprise applications that were once confined to the corporate headquarters are now widely distributed to users across the extended enterprise. In this environment, it is critical that businesses deliver these applications in real time. After all, poor performance is no longer an annoying inconvenience; it can have a serious impact the business as a whole.

CAMPBELL, CA (PRWEB) April 6, 2022 -- This year is all about the real-time enterprise. Companies are spending a lot of energy, effort and money on real-time projects in order to get up-to-the-minute information to those who need it, when they need it. They are integrating their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, deploying portals, synchronizing data and leveraging radio frequency identification (RFID). But what’s the point of having real-time information if that information can’t be delivered in real time? Lag time created by network bandwidth and latency limitations, server capacity and latency restrictions, and security bottlenecks can cripple real-time efforts. These issues must be addressed if IT managers want to truly create a real-time enterprise.


Information is Perishable, According to Hy-Vee
Enterprise applications that were once confined to the corporate headquarters are now widely distributed to users across the extended enterprise. In this environment, it is critical that businesses deliver these applications in real time. After all, poor performance is no longer an annoying inconvenience; it can have a serious impact the business as a whole.

Cevin Anderson, the assistant vice president of IT for Hy-Vee Supermarkets, knows this firsthand. Hy-Vee operates more than 200 supermarket and drug stores in the Midwest. With annual sales in excess of 4 billion, the chain is ranked among the top 15 in the nation. Hy-Vee emphasizes freshness when it comes to its merchandise, and Anderson sees IT in the same way.

To maximize the value of its information, the organization deployed a portal to provide real-time intelligence to its employees. More than 45,000 employees have access to current corporate communications. All management-level employees have access to information critical to the operation of their store. It serves as the one of the primary communication channel between corporate headquarters and the retail stores.

Real-time portal applications like this one play a pivotal role in improving business efficiency, providing store associates with the right information at the right time. According to Anderson, faster access to mission-critical business information, exceptional customer service and higher productivity keeps them ahead of the competition.

“If we don’t have responsive IT and accurate information out in the hands of those who really need it, then the entire real-time concept breaks down,” said Anderson.

To eliminate lag time and improve the performance of its Plumtree portal application, Anderson and his team deployed the FineGround Condenser. Installed within the data center, the Condenser employs a variety of optimization techniques to improve enterprise application performance.

Direct-Mail DVD Subscribers Top 12% of US Internet Households, Offer Insight into Emerging "Digitally Inclined" Consumers

The Diffusion Group finds that the 4+ million direct-mail DVD households constitute a fertile target market for digital media device & service vendors.

Dallas, TX (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 5, 2022 -- Direct-mail DVD subscription services such as Netflix are now used by more 4.3 million US Internet households, about 12% of the 36 million US Internet households. According to a new report from research and strategic marketing firm The Diffusion Group, these households constitute a fertile target market for vendors pushing new digital devices and services.


TDG's latest report, "Direct-Mail DVD Subscribers: Profiling the 'Blockbuster Busters,'" finds households that subscribe to DM-DVD services demonstrate a much higher ownership or proclivity to purchase both fixed and portable consumer electronic devices, as well as the services that enable these devices. Most notably, their interest in portable digital electronics such as portable media centers and digital music players is well above average.

"Current DM-DVD households are not only frequent movie watchers; they are generally more 'digitally inclined' than the average Internet user," says Dale E. Gilliam III, contributing analyst with TDG and co-author of the new study. "As such, understanding these households can help 'digital lifestyle' companies better target those consumers more likely to purchase their products and services."

Other interesting characteristics of current DM-DVD households include the following:
• Current DM-DVD subscribers are approximately 25% more likely than non-subscribing Internet households to store digital video or music on their home PCs;
• They are significantly more likely than non-subscribing Internet households to own a portable digital music player such as an MP3 player or iPod; however, they are not more likely to own, nor more interested in owning, a portable DVD player.
• They are 47% more likely than non-subscribing Internet households to purchase a Portable Media Center or Player if the price is below $400; and
• They are 52% more likely than non-subscribing Internet households to already own a portable digital music or MP3 player, and 38% more likely to purchase such a device in the next year.

TDG’s new report, entitled "Direct-Mail DVD Subscribers: Profiling the 'Blockbuster Busters'" offers a detailed profile of DM-DVD households, including technology ownership and usage, proclivity to purchase new digital devices, entertainment service subscriptions, as well as demographic characteristics. The report is part of TDG’s ongoing Consumer Snapshot series that profiles specific segments of the emerging digital home and connected consumer marketplace.

Power & Telephone Supply Company to Distribute Coaxsys’ TVNET to Telco Customers

Coaxsys Expands Distribution to Meet Increased Demand

Los Gatos, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 5, 2022 -- Coaxsys Incorporated, makers of the #1 deployed IPTV network, today announced that it has reached an agreement with Power & Telephone Supply Company to act as the first distribution partner for its TVnet network. Power & Tel will offer the IPTV 7000, currently used by more than twenty U.S. telcos, to its network of over 300 customers.

Coaxsys’ IPTV 7000, which utilizes TVnet technology, instantly transforms a home’s existing coaxial cable infrastructure into a high-speed, IPTV-ready digital entertainment network. The network enables telcos to offer IPTV to its customers without having to rewire homes with Cat-5 Ethernet cable. Its low cost and simple plug-and-play installation enable telcos to utilize preexisting wires, dramatically reduce installation time, and deploy IPTV more quickly. This not only allows them to meet customers’ demand for reliability and simplicity, but it also saves the telco a considerable amount of money on installation.

Power & Telephone Supply Company is an independent distributor of material for the Telecommunications and Cable TV industries. Headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, Power & Tel has nine domestic and seven international offices and warehouses. Power & Tel does not manufacture or offer its own product lines; instead, its focus is on identifying and offering the best products and solutions to its customers. As a full-line stocking distributor and material management provider to the worldwide communications market, Power & Tel has been actively involved in the search for a networking solution for telcos’ IPTV deployments.

“Our customers demand the best products, and they rely on us to conduct considerable due diligence to ensure that the products we offer are reliable and functional,” said Jim Drain, VP Telephone Group for Power & Tel. “A number of our telco customers have deployed IPTV already, and countless more will be doing so in the near future. Coaxsys’ TVnet works, is reliable, is cost-effective, and has a large installed base with U.S. telcos. We are pleased to have been selected as Coaxsys’ first distribution partner, and we are excited to offer our customers the opportunity to deploy IPTV without having to rewire their customers’ homes.”

Coaxsys VP of Sales, Gregory Boe, was quick to praise his Company’s new distributor. “Over the past several months we have asked our telco customers to recommend a distributor they consider trustworthy. Without exception, they have praised Power & Tel’s commitment to quality and customer service.” Boe continued, “We are excited about the new customers to which we will be exposed, but more importantly, we are pleased to have Power & Tel represent our products. We believe that the partnership is an excellent fit that will benefit our collective customer base. Both companies hold the same high standard for customer service and excellence.”

Coaxsys’ TVnet adapters are the only available IPTV alternative to rewiring homes with Cat-5 Ethernet. Once connected to the video or broadband source, TVnet transforms the entire home’s coaxial cable into a series of network-enabled coax jacks. TVnet adapters can then be connected to any network-enabled device in order to provide Internet access, share peripherals, or stream high quality, digital audio and video (including multi-channel and HDTV).

TVnet delivers up to 104 Mbps transfer rate and supports distances up to 250 feet. TVnet is also compatible with TV splitters and supports Ethernet unicast, multicast, and broadcast.

About Coaxsys
Coaxsys, Inc., manufactures groundbreaking, high-speed networking and distribution solutions utilizing standard coaxial cable. The company’s new line of TVnet products enables telcos, cable operators, and satellite providers to deliver and distribute voice, data, and video throughout the home. TVnet transforms coax receptacles into a high performance multimedia network, creating new applications for digital communications and entertainment - without having to hardwire Cat 5 cable throughout the home. Coaxsys also licenses its TVnet technology to partners, such as set-top box and modem companies, that wish to make their products TVnet-Ready.

Established in 2002, Coaxsys is headquartered in Los Gatos, California. For more information on Coaxsys, visit www.coaxsys.com

“We are confident that our 42-inch Olevia LCD TV with Super-IPS and Syntax’s iDEA technology is the ideal ‘cross-over’ product for consumers who desire an affordable large format digital TV that they can enjoy for an extended number of years without the negative attributes associated with plasma TVs,” said James Li, Chief Executive Officer of Syntax Groups. “As more consumers increase their awareness of plasma’s high power consumption, heat and fan noise, plus image burn-in effects and shorter life cycle, our high value 42-inch Olevia will be their obvious choice.”

The Olevia LT42HVi is the latest model to include Syntax’s proprietary “iDEA”(Innovative Digitally Enhanced Architecture) digital video processing technology, a suite of built-in and user-selectable video/audio features delivering crisp, clear pictures with precise colors, sharp resolutions and audio synchronization through its advance digital sound processor (DSP).

· Dual progressive component scan inputs with 3:2 pulldown
· User selectable audio equalizer preset modes and reverb effects
· Choice of horizontal or vertical mounted speakers

To best fit a variety of living environments, Syntax is the first manufacturer to provide users with a choice of speaker mounting positions. The Olevia LT42HVi’s two 25-watt stereo enhanced surround sound detachable speakers can be mounted either horizontally at the base of the TV, or vertically on each side, or completely removed for users who want to customize their sound system. A newly designed stand featuring a rounded footprint is detachable for users who want to wall mount the Olevia LT42HVi.

Competitively priced at $3699, the Olevia LT42HVi is scheduled for availability in June 2005. With the richest warranty in the industry, Syntax provides consumers of its Olevia LCD TVs (26+ inch units) with a unique free first year on-site service plan.

Electrophysics® Expands Options for High-End Surveillance With the SunStar 600™

Cutting-edge technologies combined to offer one of today’s foremost low-light CCD cameras.

Fairfield, NJ (PRWEB) April 5, 2022 -- For demanding situations, high-end surveillance systems require more than just average low-light CCD cameras to provide nighttime images. When security is critical, facilities will rely on their systems to perform above par, no matter what the lighting conditions may be. The Electrophysics SunStar 600 is an ultra-low light camera that incorporates a high-performance CCD, featuring advanced on-chip signal processing. When integrated with surveillance systems, the SunStar 600 will assure that low-light and nighttime conditions will never be vulnerability.


Imaging in near total darkness is now as practical as ever, as the SunStar 600 features an ultra-low light sensitivity of 0.00001 lux. The on-chip amplifier overcomes the fundamental noise limitations of traditional on-chip charge to voltage conversion and off-chip video amplification stages. The camera converts photons to charge in the image area during the integration time period, then transfers the charge through the image store sections of the readout register prior to conversion to a voltage by the low noise output amplifier.

“Low-light conditions should never be considered a weakness, especially for high-end security systems,” said Jay Jones, Director of Night Vision Sales for Electrophysics. “The SunStar 600 provides revolutionary night time imaging capabilities that facilities can depend on to enhance their 24-hour security details.”

The SunStar 600 is not damaged by over exposure, as the fully automatic, on-chip gain control provides a high degree of flexibility to respond to changing light levels. The SunStar 600 can be used in bright conditions, like conventional CCD cameras, and transfer smoothly and rapidly to extremely demanding low-light situations, providing true 24-hour surveillance capability for a variety of applications, including airborne imaging, border patrol, force protection, asset protection and perimeter security. C-Mount compatible, the SunStar 600 can be used with number of lenses, allowing facilities to fine tune the camera per individual range requirements. In addition, a variety of camera housings are also available for specific environmental applications.

Headquartered in Fairfield, New Jersey, Electrophysics develops advanced near infrared, night vision and thermal imaging systems for use in a host of imaging applications. Since 1969, Electrophysics has maintained its focus on delivering products that reflect the company’s exceptional engineering capabilities to meet specific real world demands while keeping pace with rapidly evolving imaging technologies.

The Smithsonian’s National Design Museum to Spotlight Atair Aerospace’s Composite Parafoil as Part of Its “Extreme Textiles” Exhibition

The Smithsonian has selected Atair Aerospace’s (Atair AS) Composite Parafoil for display opposite the Wright Brothers’ 1902 flyer to contrast early to state-of-the-art textiles used in aviation. The exhibit entitled, “Extreme Textiles: Designing for High Performance” will be on view April 8, 2022 through October 30, 2021 at the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City.

Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) April 5, 2022 -- The Smithsonian has selected Atair Aerospace’s (Atair AS) Composite Parafoil for display opposite the Wright Brothers’ 1902 flyer. This display will contrast early to state-of-the-art textiles used in aviation.


Atair AS’s ‘Cobalt’ composite parafoil is being displayed as part of the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum exhibit, “Extreme Textiles: Designing for High Performance.” Atair AS’s parafoils represents the state of the art in gliding parachute design. Also displayed will be a “Birdman Suit” constructed using Atair AS’s non-woven composite textiles and inventive manufacturing techniques.

Led by one of New York City’s own, Daniel Preston, Atair AS is revolutionizing the parachute industry with the development of composite textiles and manufacturing techniques. Atair AS is using its Composite Parachute Technology™ (CPT) to develop highly efficient, light weight parafoils with applications of great social consequence. Atair AS’s CPT is being implemented on autonomously guided parafoils for resupply, and unmanned aerial vehicles for surveillance in IRAQ.

Atair AS’s autonomously guided parafoil systems were developed for the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Center (NSC) to transition the Army’s current WWII-era low altitude, low accuracy, high vulnerability airdrop practices into the 21st Century. Existing airdrop methods expose air and ground troops to threat from insurgents’ inexpensive shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles (SAMs). Guided parafoil systems can be likened to a smart bomb but for safely delivering cargo. Atair AS’s systems can be air dropped at up to 35,000 ft., autonomously glide over 30 miles, and land cargo within 150 ft. of a target—thus saving lives and protecting assets. Cargo for ground and special operations forces includes food and water, medical supplies, fuel, munitions and other critical battlefield payloads.

In conjunction with the exhibit, Preston will speak on Atair AS’s enabling technologies during the Museum’s May 12 symposium at Rockefeller University entitled, “Extreme Textiles: The Space Between Science, Technology and Design.”

“Extreme Textiles: Designing for High Performance” will be on view April 8, 2022 through October 30, 2005. For further information on the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum visit www.cooperhewitt.org.

Atair AS is a Brooklyn-based defense contractor dedicated to modernizing military and industrial airdrop techniques through its range of innovative autonomously guided parachute systems, UAVs, and composite materials. Atair AS is under contract with the U.S. Army/DoD to continue developing state-of-the-art autonomous GPS and INS guided parafoil/parachute systems.

BioFit Adds Ergonomic Improvements to Class 10 Clean Room Seating

BioFit Engineered Products announces ergonomic improvements that increase the adjustability of its Microtech high-tech chairs for Class 10 clean rooms and Class 10 combination clean room/static control applications. Armrests that are both height and width adjustable and additional controls for seat and/or backrest adjustment are now available as options on BioFit Class 10 chairs. BioFit can provide the chair adjustability needed for virtually any high-tech work application.

WATERVILLE, OH (PRWEB) April 4, 2022 -– BioFit® Engineered Products announces ergonomic improvements that increase the adjustability of its Microtech high-tech chairs for Class 10 clean rooms and Class 10 combination clean room/static control applications.

Adjustable armrests and additional controls for seat and/or backrest adjustment are now available as options on BioFit Class 10 chairs. The selection increases opportunities for customizing basic Class 10 models to meet the exact requirements of individual users and specific high-tech applications.

BioFit now offers armrests that are both height and width adjustable and have either upholstered or self-skinned urethane pads. Adjustability increases the armrests’ capability to provide proper arm support that can greatly reduce shoulder, back and neck strain from prolonged seated work. The adjustability also adds to a chair’s flexibility in providing comfort and support for multiple users.

The expanded selection of ergonomic controls enables BioFit to provide the chair adjustability needed for virtually any high-tech work application. Depending on the chair model and control selected, a seated individual can adjust seat and backrest height and tilt as needed to support posture changes and work comfortably at desk, bench or high-bench work levels. Seat and backrest can be locked into place as required for the stability needed for close work.

BioFit can offer the additional adjustability by manufacturing Class 10 chairs and stools with a patented Microtech filtration system within the seat cushion. The filtration system replaces an air exchange system with a bag encased in a pan attached to the seat. The new system preserves the original appearance of the chair model while trapping particulates and allowing the seat to conform to body shape.

BioFit also announces Class 10 seating price reductions, made possible by replacing the air exchange system, and manufacture in a clean room to assure compatibility at Federal Standard 209E’s Class 10 level. BioFit assembles, wipes down and packages the Class 10 seating components in a clean room environment. The already-upholstered components are packaged in certified clean room bags, labeled and shipped to the customer for final assembly in a clean staging area. No wipe down by the customer is required.

BioFit offers many ergonomic chair models in its Microtech seating line. The performance package for Class 10 clean room chairs includes chrome-plated metal parts and Grade 2 vinyl upholstery in addition to the Microtech filtration system. The polypropylene filter media achieve Class 10 protection levels by trapping particles 0.10 microns and larger. The filter allows unrestricted air flow with a filter permeability of 180 CFM/Ft.2

Class 10 combination seating protects against static charges by providing 100 percent continuity, with static drain routes around parts that are insulated in standard models, including the armrests. The seating has chrome-plated metal parts, ESD vinyl for static dissipation, conductive casters or glides, and a drag chain for grounding the chair or stool to an ESD-control floor or mat.

BioFit Engineered Products, located outside of Bowling Green, Ohio, is a leading manufacturer of rugged and dependable furniture products. For more information, call BioFit toll-free at 1-800-597-0246 (United States and Canada).

World's Fastest Storage Backed With A Performance Guarantee As Texas Memory Systems Moves To Expand Market For Solid State Disks

Texas Memory System's guarantees RamSan solid state disks will deliver faster performance than any competitive storage product and that software application performance will be accelerated to the customer's satisfaction.

Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 4, 2022 -- Texas Memory Systems, makers of the World’s Fastest Storage®, announced that it is now guaranteeing that RamSan solid state disks will deliver faster performance than any competitive storage product and that software application performance will be accelerated to the satisfaction of customers. This guarantee is an industry first and is expected to increase the number of organizations trying, and ultimately using, solid state technology to accelerate their software applications.

Organizations that are unfamiliar with solid state disks performance and price-performance metrics often end up with a poor return on investment by adding processors, RAM, hard drives, monolithic RAID or constantly re-coding databases when trying to solve application performance problems, A solid state disk is a very cost effective way to solve performance issues.

Solid state disks are strategically used to accelerate enterprise applications like databases, OLTP (online transaction processing), OLAP (online analytical processing), modeling, and data acquisition. Typical users include corporations in the financial, telecom, broadcasting, and e-commerce sectors as well as government, military and research organizations.

In a recent independent survey*, people who already used solid state disks (all manufacturers) were asked to rate their experience of the benefits delivered, compared to expectations. 65% said solid state disk greatly exceeded expectations; 6% said their experience exceeded expectations and 6% said their experience met expectations. While 12% said they were mildly disappointed, nobody (zero percent) was strongly disappointed. When asked what would make it easier to buy solid state disk technology and remove doubts and risks which currently act as roadblocks, 52% suggested performance guarantees and 44% suggested try-before-you-buy programs.

"Many customers are implementing multiple storage tiers that offer different levels of performance, based on measurable cost/benefit advantages," said David Freund, Information Architectures Practice Leader at Illuminata. "Yet most shy away from adding a higher-performance solid state disk tier based solely on cost. Assuring customers their expectations will be met or exceeded with a money-back guarantee removes a significant obstacle, enabling more IT shops to consider using solid state disk in their storage infrastructures."

"Before CIOs invest in solid state disk technology they want to know if it will deliver the desired performance within their own unique IT environment," said Woody Hutsell, Texas Memory Systems' Executive Vice President. "We can make reasonable predictions about performance. However, an actual installation removes any doubt. Our guarantee mitigates the financial risk of investing in Texas Memory Systems' solid state storage making us the safest investment."

The guarantee can be summarized as follows and full details are available at www.superSSD.com/guarantee.htm:

Guarantee Relative To Competitive Storage Products: Texas Memory Systems guarantees that qualifying RamSan solid state systems will perform faster than any competitive storage product currently owned by qualifying customers. If a RamSan unit does not outperform the customer's existing storage in a head-to-head benchmark**, the RamSan unit may be returned within 30 days of delivery and Texas Memory Systems will refund all related Texas Memory Systems hardware charges.

Guarantee Relative To Application Performance Satisfaction: Texas Memory Systems guarantees that qualifying RamSan solid state systems will accelerate the software application performance of qualifying customers, by whatever measurement the customer chooses and documents. If the RamSan unit does not accelerate the software application performance to a level acceptable to the customer, the RamSan unit may be returned within 30 days of delivery and Texas Memory Systems will refund all related Texas Memory Systems hardware charges, minus a 10% restocking fee.

About Texas Memory Systems

More Contrast Rich Movies With the New Beamax High Contrast Fabric

Available from April 1st, Beamax introduces the High Contrast screen fabric. The new High Contrast fabric increases the perceived deepness of the black projected on the screen. Additionally, the images are more easily seen in high ambient light conditions (daytime viewing and non-darkened rooms), because the darker parts of the projected images are more visible. The High Contrast fabric is currently available in the M, M-silver, A and A-Velvet screen series.

(PRWEB) April 3, 2022 -- Available from April 1st, Beamax introduces the High Contrast screen fabric.

The new High Contrast fabric increases the perceived deepness of the black projected on the screen. Additionally, the images are more easily seen in high ambient light conditions (daytime viewing and non-darkened rooms), because the darker parts of the projected images are more visible.

The High Contrast fabric is currently available in the M, M-silver, A and A-Velvet screen series.

How does the screen fabric actually improve the projected image?
Projectors these days have enough light output to create a very bright image. However, the quality of a movie is often determined by the differences in light and dark areas, in other words contrast. On a matte-white screen, the projector only determines the contrast you can see. With a high-contrast fabric, the grey fabric strengthens the projected black, because the human eye perceives the projected blacks as darker, because they are projected onto a grey surface.
In high ambient-light conditions, colours can appear to be washed out, which means it is very difficult to see an image at all. With the High-Contrast screen fabric, the colours look darker, which means it is easier to see the projected image. This means that movies look better during daytime viewing.

When would I use the High Contrast fabric and when would I use the regular matte white fabric?
For mid to high-end projectors and situations where the room can be darkened completely, we recommend using regular matte white screen fabric.

If you use an entry level projector, which does not have a high contrast level, the image you see can be improved when using a high contrast fabric.

When you want to enjoy you movies during daytime, the projected image will also look better when you use a high contrast fabric.

In which screens can I get the High Contrast fabric?
The High Contrast fabric is available in the M- and M-silver electrical screens and the A- and A-Velvet series fixed frame screens. Prices range from £285 (incl. VAT) for a 6ft wide A-series frame screen to £939 (incl. VAT) for a 10ft wide A-Velvet frame screen.

The screens are available now from all Beamax dealers.

CellForCash.com Begins Cell Phone Repair Operations with FixMyCellPhone.com

A leader in the cell phone recycling industry, CellForCash.com believes there’s an opportunity in repairing non-working cell phones

Ocala, FL (PRWEB) April 2, 2022 -- CellForCash.com, a recognized leader in the emerging cell phone recycling and remarketing industry, has entered the cell phone repair business with the establishment of a new web site, www.FixMyCellPhone.com


James Mosieur, chief executive officer, said the explosive growth of the cell phone industry means that millions of expensive phones can be expected to malfunction every year. Quality repairs can get most of those phones working again at a fraction of the cost of a new phone.

“More than 122 million cell phones were sold in the US during 2004, and sales are expected to grow at a rapid rate,’ Mosieur said. “With all the features that the new telephones offer, they are simply too valuable to toss away if they should stop working, and we feel we can take advantage of that.”

The company already handles between 60,000 and 90,000 cell phones every month, buying them directly from consumers and industry and then re-selling them to foreign markets. The company already goes through all those phones to make sure they are in good working order, so offering quality repair services is an obvious extension of the company’s existing business, Mosieur said.

The company will use its proven system for communicating directly with consumers. Consumers will be able to contact the company through the new website, www.FixMyCellPhone.com as well as through www.CellForCash.com and www.WirelessFundraiser.com. Customers will be able to contact the company through the website, and the company will respond by sending out a sturdy self-addressed cardboard mailer.

The customer simply puts the non-working phone into the mailer, mails it off, and then waits for the company to respond with a diagnosis and repair cost estimate. If the customer agrees to the repairs, the phone is fixed and returned by mail. The customer pays by credit card.

“The internet has made it possible to serve individual consumers in the recycled cell phone industry,” Mosieur said. “We believe it will also allow for the creation of a lucrative cell phone repair industry.”

FixMyCellPhone.com, CellForCash.com and WirelessFundraiser.com are all owned by RMS Communications Group Inc. of Ocala, Fla.

About RMS Communications Group Inc.
Based in Ocala, Fla., RMS Communications Group Inc. provides consumers and businesses a convenient way to get cash for cell phones that otherwise lay idle. The company often partners with non-profit organizations that find the collection and sale of old cell phones to be an excellent source of revenue.

2LiveFools.com Starts Weekly Entertainment & Technology Podcast

Award-winning producer and pioneer David C. Fein and independent filmmaker Marc Fusco have launched one of the first weekly entertainment industry podcasts on the web at www.2livefools.com. Having their big toe firmly planted on the quaking bedrock that is the entertainment industry, they are insiders in technology and entertainment. The duo will expand upon current industry events, news and technology with a no-holds-barred approach.

Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) April 2, 2022 -- Send in the Fools! This April Fools’ day marks the birth of http://www.2livefools.com/. Though it’s no joke, these two “fools” have a decidedly un-stuffy look at entertainment and technology. Award-winning DVD producer and pioneer David C. Fein and independent filmmaker Marc Fusco have launched one of the first weekly entertainment industry podcasts on the web at http://www.2livefools.com/. Having their big toe firmly planted on the quaking bedrock that is the entertainment industry, they are insiders in technology and entertainment. The duo will expand upon current industry events, news and technology with a no-holds-barred approach. The fools invite industry guests and celebrities to join the podcast and record their show live in numerous locations to take advantage of the portable, user-friendly gadgets that help create each show.

“Every show will give that listener across the country a more in-depth look into the film and TV industry. That’s something that you just can’t get from those half-hour ‘fluff’ shows on television.” explains Fusco. “It’s refreshing. Some might think it’s a bit foolish to be this candid, but I think it’s something that’s been missing for a long time.”

“As working souls in Hollywood, our intention is also to consider technology in a very practical way as it applies to the entertainment business.” expands Fein, “Our goal is to not get overly technical or boring, but to give a very ‘real world’ take on the subject. This isn’t just for the ‘geeks’ out there, although there will be something interesting for them too.”

With the goal of creating substantive entertainment commentary that currently doesn’t exist in media, 2livefools will also partner with outside sponsors to create appropriate synergies and a strong, national presence.

David C. Fein produced many critically acclaimed DVD/laserdisc titles including the best-selling “Star Trek The Motion Picture: Director’s Edition” recut for Robert Wise. Marc Fusco directed and wrote the indie heist film “Stealing Time” and was a former assistant to Steven Spielberg.
