FileMaker Go for iPad And iPhone Apps Surpass 1 Million Downloads

Apple subsidiary FileMaker, Inc., today announced that its FileMaker Go for iPad and iPhone apps have surpassed 1,000,000 downloads from the iTunes App Store. The milestone confirms the continued popularity of the FileMaker Platform for creating custom business solutions that run on iPad and iPhone.

“Businesses are using the FileMaker Platform to create solutions that manage everything from sales contacts and inventory to medical data on iPad and iPhone,” says Ryan Rosenberg, vice president, marketing and services, FileMaker, Inc. “With the recent launch of FileMaker 13, customers will find it easier than ever to design innovative mobile solutions.”

The FileMaker Go for iPad and iPhone App is part of FileMaker’s comprehensive lineup of desktop, server and iOS software for creating custom business solutions that run on iPad, iPhone, Windows, Mac, and web browsers. The FileMaker 13 Platform includes expanded support for native iOS behaviors (such as popovers and slide controls) and new features (such as bar code scanning) that speed data capture on iPad and iPhone. FileMaker Go is now a single app for both iPad and iPhone. The FileMaker Go 13 for iPad and iPhone App is downloadable for free from the iTunes App Store.

Businesses Report Streamlined Business Processes and Higher Productivity

Businesses of all sizes and across many industries are benefitting from custom business solutions built with the FileMaker Platform and FileMaker Go for iPad and iPhone.

The Austin Convention Center (ACC) in Austin, Texas, equips its maintenance and technical service teams with iPads running a custom FileMaker Go for iPad business solution. The solution saves endless steps for workers in the six-block-long facility, eliminates paper and faxes, improves customer service, and racked up a 200% ROI and a four-month payback period for the ACC.

Abbott Northwestern Hospital (Minneapolis, MN) uses the FileMaker Platform to streamline the process of tracking physicians and residents being trained in bedside ultrasound. The hospital’s custom business solution uses the iPhone to record results from bedside ultrasound exams in real time to determine if physicians and trainees have met hospital requirements to be properly credentialed in use of the technology.

Fortune 500 company Henry Schein (Melville, NY) has armed more than 800 of its Henry Schein Dental sales consultants with iPad business solutions to improve sales effectiveness and reduce waste. The company’s FileMaker solution provides access to the right sales information about tens of thousands of products at the right time, enabling sales consultants to assemble and print out personalized reports on the spot.

Entrepreneur George Page, owner of Sea Breeze Farm, deploys FileMaker software to create several custom solutions that run on the iPad and integrate his various business operations. Page estimates that the new solutions have made his business three to four times more productive. Sea Breeze Farm is a grass-based animal farm on Washington’s Vashon Island that boasts a dairy, butcher shop, winery, cheese business and popular restaurant.

Zackees Electronic Turn Signal Gloves

Zackees is a new product intended to revolutionize the way people exercise and ride the streets: Electronic turn signal gloves that help keep the user safe on the road, while being fashionable, effortless, and easy to power.

The maker, Zach Vorhies, is a former Google Earth & Lucasfilm engineer who partnered up with a Robotics specialist and a NY fashion designer to invent a disruptive electronics product that can help prevent traffic accidents and deaths.


Zackees Features:

Safe & Fashionable:
Riders don’t ride more often because of the fear of being seriously hit or killed by a car. Two problems are that drivers aren’t aware of what the hand signals mean and bikers don’t often don’t wear safety gear because they are uncomfortable or ugly. Turn Signal Gloves gives cyclists a fashionable, easy safety option, and drivers an unmistakable cue that they are sharing the roads.

Effortless
Unique patent-pending, nickel-plated steel contact switch that forgoes the need of a button. Makes activation intuitive and effortless.

Easy Power
The gloves see up to 2 months of battery life with regular use, and has super bright high efficiency LED turn signal for turbo visibility. Ambient light-sensor that controls illumination to preserve battery power.

High Quality Textiles
Zackees wanted to create the best possible glove that would compete against the top glove makers. Therefore they added comfortable leather palms, an absorbent towel around the thumb, retro-reflective trim and breathable spandex throughout.

Washable
The turn signal electronics are protected with a water proof coating, allowing you to wash your gloves like other delicate clothing.

Super bright LEDs
How can they be so bright when using such a small battery? Efficiency. The LEDs are some of the most efficient on the market at converting power into light. A light sensor boosts light output during the day

Super Long Battery Life</Low End Mac's
The gloves get 3-6 months of daily active use (when used with four minutes of active blinking a day).

Metal Contact Switch
Zackees engineers spent months making the perfect activation switch between the thumb and index finger. They found that metal rivets are by far the most natural to use and the sound they make is strangely addicting.

Durability
Premium thread, ultra-flex wire are used and the electronics are encased in a durable polymer. These gloves are designed tough.

Etron EJ888 USB Power Delivery Controller Ia New Solution for Universal Charging

Managing power delivery of up to 100 watts via Universal Serial Bus (USB) is an important step in enabling a flexible, standardized power management ecosystem. Etron Technology, Inc. (Taiwan GTSM: 5351) today announced its latest USB Power Delivery (PD) Controller IC – EJ888, based on the USB-IF’s USB Power Delivery Rev. 1.0 specification, which enables USB power delivery from 10 watts to 100 watts, and significantly reduces device charging time. In addition, it makes power delivery more flexible by adding full bi-directional power that can be renegotiated as system power needs change with the end-user. EJ888 optimizes user mobility by allowing data transmission and power delivery to be combined on a single USB cable. Its advanced power voltage, power stream, and communication features enable low-power-consumption devices, such as phones and MP3 players, and even higher-power-consumption appliances, such as computer monitors and laptops, to be powered via USB.

In a modern life full of various kinds of consumer electronics, power supply voltage and current demands can vary from one cable, charger, and battery to another. In recent years, consumer demand for lower-carbon products and services is growing. USB power delivery is a new power-supply solution that has the potential to greatly reduce electronic waste by eliminating proprietary chargers.

“USB Power Delivery will help simplify the lives of consumers by providing a single-cable for data and power delivery up to 100 watts,” says Jeff Ravencraft, USB-IF President & COO. “USB-IF member companies like Etron that incorporate USB PD into products and solutions further the efforts toward universal charging.”

“For early market engagement, Etron’s latest USB Power Delivery Controller IC EJ888 is based on the USB Power Delivery Rev. 1.0 specification. In addition, it supports USB-IF Battery Charging 1.2 for any portable device. The EJ888 Chip enables higher voltage and current in order to deliver power up to 100 watts, with 20V to the full 5A, via USB. Utilizing bi-directional power delivery, EJ188 automatically detects current sources and sinks, and performs a negotiated handshake via VBus. It allows users to access simple Plug-and-Charge via USB and meets the needs of USB PD developers,“ says Dr. Nicky Lu, Etron Technology Chairman & CEO.

Micro-USB is the de facto solution for device charging and USB Power Delivery enables the next significant move toward universal charging. The European Union now requires cellular phone vendors to use Micro USB for charging. In addition, the government of the People’s Republic of China is envisioning a significant move toward universal charging based on USB. Etron is one of the leaders in delivering USB Power Delivery Controller ICs, including EJ888. Furthermore, the new USB PD market opportunity has the potential to promote the prosperity of the industry as a whole.

Etron will display and demonstrate its cutting-edge EJ888 product along with its comprehensive series of USB 3.0 controller ICs at Booth No. 35116 in South Hall 4 of the Las Vegas Convention Center at CES 2014 from January 7th to 10th. For more information, visit: http://www.etron.com.tw

Netherlands-based Mujjo say that in response to numerous requests from colder climates like Canada, Norway and Russia they’ve introduced a double-layered knitted touchscreen glove, combining stylish design with enhanced thermal insulation.

The extra layer, made out of wool, acts as an insulator and doubles as lining, providing enhanced insulation and a soft touch. The layer of insulation is precisely balanced for optimal touchscreen usability. In addition to enhanced thermal insulation, the gloves feature an avant garde design with a strap closure. Grip dot patterns on the palms of these heavy-duty gloves aid in gripping and provide anti-slip capabilities that will come in handy on a moist or snowy winter day.

A leather strap crosses over a notch on the wrist where a carefully placed sophisticated matte black leather button provides a snap closure. The cuff boards are made out of matching black leather and the palms feature grip dots creating an intentional contrast while sleek lines and uniform dark tones amplify harmony.

These gloves are ideal for taking your phone out of your jeans-pocket and holding your phone during daily outdoors activities like riding your bike.

The double-layered touchscreen gloves are now available at:

Also available in size XL.

rooCASE Debuts its eTablet Protective Solutions Product Line Just in Time for the Holiday Shopping Season

Competition is fierce this Holiday shopping season, especially when it comes to selling electronic tablet accessories. After all, whats a cool iPad or Kindle Fire gift without a cool case to accompany it? Southern California based rooCASE revved-up to sell tens of thousands of accessories during Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotions, as they launch their newest line of protective solutions for electronic tablets, laptops, smartphones, and cameras.

Kevin Cheng, co-founder of rooCASE, says rooCASE is taking big risks this Holiday season, hoping for a big payoff with its new stylish and dependable line designed to protect such gadgets as the iPad Air and Kindle Fire HDX.

“This year we decided to invest in one of Amazons Kindle Fire advertisement programs, which should lead to big sales generated through rooCASEs Amazon Store,” says Cheng.

Although rooCASE is sold at major retailers like Best Buy, Newegg, Walmart, and featured reseller PCMicroStore.com, the real customer bargains can be found at the rooCASE Amazon store.

“Our Amazon store is suited for customers who have bought such electronic tablets, as the new iPad Air and are looking to protect their newest gadget,” says co-founder Warren Liu.

The rooCASE line features dozen of cases in different styles and colors for such tablets as the iPad (various generations), Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HDX units, Samsung Galaxy Tablets, Nexus 7 units, and the gadget list goes on. rooCASE also sells a variety of smartphone cases, camera cases, and screen protectors.

“The tablet cases have a unique origami slim-shell premium leather cover, which allows for both portrait and landscape views. The cases also feature magnetic flap closures, access to all tablet ports, keypad docks, and for some tablets auto sleep and wake functions,” says Liu.

Cheng and Liu say rooCASE designers worked with the end-users’ needs in mind, ensuring that cases have not only sturdy exteriors, but also the right-size pockets for smaller accessories. “From this starting point of practicality, our designers then consider what’s hip now,” adds Cheng.

The rooCASE name stems from how a Kangaroo protects its young. Like a kangaroo safely carries her young in her pouch, rooCASE offers protective solutions for your precious electronic possessions.

Through the rooCASE Amazon store (http://goo.gl/4PTpmB), you can choose from an array of functional yet fashionable cases for your electronic tablet, laptop, notebook, smartphone, and other electronic devices.

KYOCERA’s “Kyoto Opal” Utilized in Decorative Design of Protective Film Screen Covers for iPhone 5s/5c/5

Kyocera Corporation has announced that the company’s unique Kyoto Opal material is being utilized in protective film screen covers for the iPhone 5s/5c/5. The covers, featuring sparkling characteristics similar to natural opal, recently went on sale in Tokyo and will also be available in the U.S. through the makers Web site starting December 5 (Power Support International: http://www.powersupportintl.com/iPhone-5-5c-5s-Film-s/1863.htm).

The film cover is made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resin with thinly sliced Kyoto Opal mixed in for decorative properties. The extremely fine grain structure of the Kyoto Opal makes it so that when the display is on, the opal material has a very transparent quality and does not interfere with the screen display or operations. When the screen is off, the opal material shines brilliantly in different colors depending on the angle it is viewed from. Because this characteristic makes it difficult to see the screen from side angles, the cover film can also help ensure user privacy from nearby onlookers.

This year marks the 5th anniversary of Kyoto Opal, which is being used in an ever-widening range of products: from traditional Japanese souvenir items to flutes, high-end ukuleles, professional hair cutting scissors, magnetic necklaces which are designed to improve blood circulation, and even in eyewear.

The wide use of Kyoto Opal stems from its unique aesthetic features. Utilizing special staining techniques, Kyocera has been able to realize a variety of rich and subtle hues and tints, which cannot be duplicated with molded resin-based opal products. Furthermore, by surmounting the inherently brittle characteristics of naturally occurring opals, which tend to split and crack, it is possible to cut the material into diverse shapes and sizes.
