Dane-Elec Debuts "Mobile Junkie" Line of Mobile Accessories at CES 2013

Flagship Product, the Wireless SmartReader, Fits in a Pocket and Streams Media Files On-the-Go to up to Five Devices at Once

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/04/13 -- Dane-Elec, a global leader in consumer electronics, will use the upcoming 2013 International CES setting to introduce its new line of mobile accessories, called Mobile Junkie. The line's flagship model is the Wireless SmartReader -- your personal mobile share point for up to five devices that is so small it can fit in a pocket. Additional products include an Ultra-Mini USB drive, a 3-in-1 Mobile Kit, and a Secure Digital High Capacity memory card.

"We are thrilled to introduce the exciting new Mobile Junkie line, designed to make a user's mobile experience more enjoyable," commented Sherry Chapman, Dane-Elec director of marketing. "In today's society, almost everyone has a smartphone, tablet, digital camera, or Ultrabook. The Mobile Junkie line allows consumers to enjoy and share more content on their devices, whenever and wherever they are."

Wireless SmartReader -- Your Mobile Digital Share Point
As its name implies, the Wireless SmartReader wirelessly extends a mobile device's storage space. It allows media files to easily be streamed on-the-go, virtually anywhere, with no Internet service or data plan fees required. Up to five devices can access the data on it at any one time, such as photos, music, movies, documents and more. Other than a company expense allowance, it is the best traveling companion available for business trips as well as vacations or even some leisure time in the backyard.

It's as simple as 1-2-3 to use. 1) Download music, movies, photos, or documents onto a USB drive or SD card, 2) insert the flash memory unit into the Wireless SmartReader, 3) watch, view, hear, or read on a mobile device. The device features eight hours of battery life and can provide up to four hours of mobile device battery backup.

The Dane-Elec Wireless SmartReader is compatible with SD, SDHC, SDXC, and USB 2.0 flash devices. It supports a number of movie, photo, music, and document file formats. It also supports iPhone™, iPad ™, iPodTouch™, Android™, Windows™, smartphones, tablets, and iOS 5 and later. Free Apps are available. Its small size (2.2" x 1.8" x 1") and light weight (3.5 ounces) make it ultra-portable.

Mobile Junkie -- Flash Memory On-the-Go
In addition to the Wireless SmartReader, other initial products in the Dane-Elec Mobile Junkie lineup are:

  • Ultra Mini USB Drive - small USB drive that is perfect for the low profile, sleek design of Ultrabooks; 8GB, 16GB & 32GB

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy.

Comparing cloud providers is complicated. With constant price drops and the frequent introduction of new instance types, no matter what answer you come up with today it is sure to change in three months. Taking into account differences in performance, it gets even more confusing when you realize that applications run differently on different clouds. One thing is certain though: price in a vacuum doesn’t tell you the whole story. In fact, it’s a lot like selecting a car based on sticker price an...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

The very name is kind of ridiculous, don’t you think? The word “ephemeral” means it can go away. It’s temporary. Fleeting, even. So why would I want to depend on storing something in a medium that can disappear without warning? And why am I forced to buy more of it when all I want is more CPUs or RAM? Welcome to the paradox of ephemeral storage from cloud computing providers. Ephemeral storage exists only because of how first-generation cloud providers chunk up servers. The business model is ...
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and asse...
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary.
