Case for a Cause: OtterBox Releases Limited Edition Waves for iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III

With more than 10,000 species threatened worldwide due to pollution, illegal trade, industrialization and natural disaster, the importance of a sustainable, healthy marine ecology is more evident now than ever before. OtterBox® is pleased to announce limited edition Waves Defender Series® cases for Apple® iPhone® 5 and Samsung Galaxy S® III supporting the Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong (OPCFHK).

OtterBox will donate 10 percent of the purchase price from each case to Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong (OPCFHK) to fund research and education efforts aimed at the conservation of endangered animals and their habitats in Asia. OtterBox has pledged a minimum contribution of $50,000 USD.

Designed to offer style and protection, the Defender Series Waves case combines protection and beauty with an artistic pattern featuring an aquamarine seahorse. Built for protection, OtterBox Defender Series cases offer triple-layer coverage. The rugged design starts with a built-in screen protector to keep display glass scratch-free. A sturdy polycarbonate mid-layer and silicone outer layer combine to keep the device safe from shock and drops, while silicone plugs cover the access points to keep out dirt and dust. An included holster-style swivel belt clip allows for quick access and secure storage.*

The Waves case is now available at otterbox.com.hk, retail shops inside Ocean Park Hong Kong and select PCCW and Broadway stores in Hong Kong. The case will also be available in select retail stores throughout Asia Pacific.

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With “smart” appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user’s habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps,...
Predicted by Gartner to add $1.9 trillion to the global economy by 2020, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is based on the idea that devices, systems and services will connect in simple, transparent ways, enabling seamless interactions among devices across brands and sectors. As this vision unfolds, it is clear that no single company can accomplish the level of interoperability required to support the horizontal aspects of the IoE. The AllSeen Alliance, announced in December 2013, was formed wi...
Goodness there is a lot of talk about cloud computing. This ‘talk and chatter’ is part of the problem, i.e., we look at it, we prod it and we might even test it out – but do we get down to practical implementation, deployment and (if you happen to be a fan of the term) actual cloud ‘rollout’ today? Cloud offers the promise of a new era they say – and a new style of IT at that. But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data.

Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, B...

Technology is enabling a new approach to collecting and using data.

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Dave Wagstaff, Vice President and Chief Architect at BSQUARE Corporation, will discuss the real...
I write and study often on the subject of digital transformation - the digital transformation of industries, markets, products, business models, etc. In brief, digital transformation is about the impact that collected and analyzed data can have when used to enhance business processes and workflows.
