****For Immediate Release

My Tire Exploded on the Freeway! Then My Car Tells Me the Tire’s Low?

We adore our cars and we love that the technology they come equipped with are put there to ensure our safety and that our car operates at an optimal level. Everyone knows that when our car is running at its’ peak performance we save. We save gas as well as our personal selves from possible harm, and we save on insurance. Yet we still see tire blowouts on the side of the road almost every day. Why? If our cars come fully loaded with warning systems, like Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) that prevent our tires from coming to dangerously low levels before we add air and prevent those scary blowouts, then please explain why that light goes on right before or after that blowout occurs. Are the concepts there but the failure to launch at the necessary moment inhibiting our safety when it comes to tire pressure?

Before 2008 all cars had to manually get checked for correct tire pressure. I remember my Grandfather and Uncle having those tire pressure monitors lying around their workshop or in their toolbox. I played with them all the time and I even knew that they had something to do with the tires. Since then I have never used one again. Oftentimes we overlook the need to check our tire pressure especially when our cars have internal sensors that gauge that stuff for us. We all know we are supposed to, but we don’t. We want everything in our lives to be easier and we definitely DO NOT want any car problems, but we are usually too busy to actually do something about it until it’s too late. Over 25% of cars on the road are driving with tires that are underinflated. Please refer here: SaferCar.gov.

With the PAPAGO! GoSafe TPMS 500BT you now have the power to check your tire pressure as much as you would like, or every two weeks like you are supposed to. Easy to install, this device will ensure that you are driving your car with optimal tire pressure and keeping you safer on the road. Simply take out your smart mobile device open the APP, GoSafe TPMS, that comes with the device and inspect the accurate status of your tire pressure. The package comes with four A-Type sensors, a receiver, anti-theft wrench, anti-theft nuts, cigarette lighter power plug, Velcro, 3V lithium batteries, and user manual.

          

Once the sensors and receiver are installed and the APP is downloaded for your Android or IOS device, you will automatically get alerted, via Bluetooth Technology, on your smart mobile device when your tire reaches the level of PSI that you set in the APP (we recommend that you get specific tire pressure values for the tires on your car). The High Precision Electronic pressure detection is much more accurate than your car’s TPMS or traditional tire gauge tools, with a degree pressure of ±1 PSI. The GoSafe TPMS APP will warn you when your batteries are low or when one of the sensors is not detected. The sensors come complete with anti-theft designed nuts that prevent them from getting stolen and to make certain they stay put when driving on rough roads.

PAPAGO! has decided that keeping people safe on the road is the main purpose that many of their products should and do possess. Researching and designing technological devices that support this goal is something they do well. With their newest product, the GoSafe TPMS 500BT, to hit the North American market, PAPAGO! is sure to become a household name. When drivers everywhere think of what device they need in their car to remain safer and better equipped while driving on those treacherous roads and freeways PAPAGO! is sure to come to mind.

Inteliscope to Suspend Shipments to Russia

Written by

Inteliscope to Suspend Shipments to Russia

Effective immediately, Inteliscope LLC has decided to refuse all future sales of Inteliscope smartphone-rifle-adapters to Russia and intends to maintain this policy until Ukraine is no longer illegally occupied by Russian troops.

Ukraine has demonstrated interest in joining the European Union. The Ukrainian people should be respected and have the right to democratically decide what is best for their country without dictatorial influences from Vladimir Putin. Furthermore, it is my opinion that this is likely an unpopular move amongst the majority of the Russian people. My hope is that pressure from companies like Inteliscope may climb the chain of influence among the Russian people and affect the choices of the Russian government.

We have recently been growing sales in Russia. The sales and relationships we have garnered with the Russian people are extremely important to us but we feel that we cannot, in good conscience, sell products that may be used against the Unites States or its allies.

As a very small Unites States business recently founded in May of 2013 we feel that this is the only step we can take to influence the Russian attitude toward Vladimir Putin’s choice to invade the sovereign country of Ukraine.

We encourage other companies in the Unites States and abroad to adopt similar policies. Together we can make our voices heard.

Thanks for your time.

Sincerely,
sign

Jason Giddings

Inteliscope LLC is a business entity established by Jason Giddings to bring to market the Inteliscope tactical firearm mount and smartphone device apps. The Inteliscope products are designed and assembled in North Idaho. The Inteliscope adapter may be purchased online at www.inteliscopes.com or from one of over 600 dealers worldwide.

A local Taiwanese company is really not falling behind, launching the world’s first smartwatch totally made of stainless steel and connected to a cloud platform.

This September is the month when all technologic companies release their new products, it is also the month when all interests are focused on “smartwatch” like the hottest topic of the moment. Samsung with its Galaxy GEAR watch is not the only one, we have seen Sony releasing their new smartwatch 2, all the other big players are trying to get into this new trend one after another. Taiwan of course is not absent of this brand new race, Guidertech has been for a long time focused on the care of senior people. Today on September 6th at the Sheraton hotel in Taipei, Guidertech has released a brand new smartwatch called angelhealth. This watch is not only targeting the general consumer market with its notification feature available through connection to smartphones, it is really getting out of the crowd for its different positioning.

First of all, the watch is made of a full stainless steel body, very similar to all major Swiss watches. This design makes it very different from the other smartwatches on the market and gives it a particular positioning.

Three main functionalities for this angelhealth starting with the notification feature and messages pushed on the screen (touch panel). The second one is a health center and the third is a daily life improving feature.

1. The notification feature not only lets you see incoming calls, text message, but also notifications from your social networking applications such as Facebook, Line, Twitter and all their content.

  1. The Heath center is the main focus and also their core of skills. Of course through the pedometer you can record your distance traveled, your steps taken or the calories that you burned, but you can also record a 24hr overview of your activity, such as your sleep or the total activity one would execute in one day. This feature is made to enhance oneself’s health monitoring with accuracy and build a very easy way for them to improve and get more healthy. The built-in bluetooth has been mainly adopted to pair the watch with other BT biometric measurement devices such as blood pressure, blood glucose, oxygen or fat scale monitors. Just to give you an insight, Guidertech has already made it easy for your as 12 different equipment brands can work and be paired so far, with a total of 15 devices. This enables the user to get an easy reading and keep track of their health anytime. Those can be also accessed by physicians or care givers.
  2. The daily life improving feature of the watch is mainly working through a third party tag, which is not bigger than a 1$ coin and built-in Bluetooth. After having paired it with the watch, it can be attached to a purse, keys, smartphone or any valuable thing. This little device will be a life saver as it will alert you on the watch via vibration that your things are getting away. Various tags can be used at the same time monitoring different things.

This angelhealth smartwatch carries a very high end technology. First it is using the Android platform and a very low power consuming CPU. An impressive Lithium battery of 410mAh is added up to that.

Guidertech’s CEO Ricky Hsu explained that the watch is not only equipped with a sleek LG touch screen IPS 240x240 display, but can also last up to an amazing 12 days on one a single charge. Of course it is a big selling point when compared to the 10hours battery life announced by Samsung for its Galaxy Gear.

When coming to the specs, angelhealth is featuring Wifi, Bluetooth 3.0, G-sensor & gyroscope and adopted Android 4.1.

Three buttons are showing on the right hand side of the device, a power on/off button, a home button and the last one kept for a customizable function button.

It is great to have a very intelligent smartwatch but it is even better if the look of it can also be customizable. The company said watch will be coming in different colors but also provide a various selection of wristbands for the user to pick from. This will make it the most accomplished and fashion smartwatch on the market so far.

The brand new smartwatch was not the only product announced by Guidertech during the conference, they introduced a total of four new products and a full on-demand cloud platform.

The first one is focused on senior care and safety, angel care is a smartwatch designed for elderly people. It is coming with a built-in cell phone, positioning via both GPS and wifi, health management services enabled through various sensors. Angel care is by far the best companion for seniors.

The second is said to be the world’s smallest GPS tracker carrying both GPS and GSM systems for the most accurate positioning, it is named angel baby. Very easy to use and charge via its dock, you will never lose your loved ones anymore. Guidertech made the cover easy to switch and personalize again so it can suit anyone. The battery is said to last up to 8 days and it is fully waterproof (IP67).

An App has been designed to work with the device and let you check on your loved ones anywhere and practically anytime. That is a peace of mind when you know that you can always be alerted whenever your kids, your pet, or any one around need assistance and this of course without having to do anything but just carrying your smartphone (web based version is also available).

The last one is called angel lite and it is one of the smallest and lightest phone ever weighting only 40g. It has been made convenient to use for people with a one push button for emergency call, one push button for biometric measurement or even positioning. It has its own application so family members can always check on the carrier. It brings a certain form of health monitoring for seniors and call filtered functionality for parents wanting to check on their kids while going to school.

Guidertech really came out of the crowd throwing out this press conference. They had even invited three important guests for this special event :

The chief secretary of the Industrial Development Bureau.

Government secretary of the Department of Economic Development.

The well-known EMBA professor Lu Xi Peng.

Guidertech was very generous organizing a small donation and offered 50 angel care to Hua Shan charity foundation.

They succeeded to bring innovation and good initiatives at the same time.

About Dead Island Riptide:
With invigorating new elements infused into a proven mix, Dead Island Riptide will reanimate the zombie terror in the original game. A monsoon has hit the once beautiful archipelago and heavy rainstorms have laid waste to large areas of the islands. The city of Henderson and jungle areas on the island of Palanai were flooded leaving boats as the only remaining way of transportation. Dynamic weather conditions will force the team members to adapt to changing visibility conditions.
 
A fifth character will join the team, with an all-new and unique skillset. The combined skills of the group will be sorely needed, since terrible, new and unknown zombie mutations have emerged all over the island.
 
In a new hub defense missions the co-op teamplay skills of the survivors will be tested to the limit – they need to strategically place traps, fences and turrets to fend off oncoming Zombie onslaughts and to protect the humans in these sanctuaries.
 
New communication features in co-op mode also allow players to enjoy an even more intense and strategic teamplay experience.
 
Dead Island Riptide will be released on April 23, 2013 in North America for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and for Windows PC.

PCMark 7 and Vantage Updated for Windows 8 Support

Written by

PCMARK 7 VERSION 1.4.0 RELEASED

PCMark 7 has been updated to version 1.4.0 and is now fully compatible with Windows 8. Please note that benchmark scores ARE affected by the changes in this update.

**You should not compare scores from PCMark 7 v1.4.0 with any previous version of PCMark 7.**

To get the update, download the PCMark 7 v1.4.0 installer:
http://www.futuremark.com/support/downloads

The major changes in PCMark 7 v1.4.0 include:

IMPROVEMENTS

- Enhanced accuracy in video playback drawn frames measurement.
- In addition to the standard result, PCMark 7 Storage tests now report additional "raw" results where the metric idle values have been excluded from the score calculation.
- Enable or disable hardware accelerated video transcoding from the Help tab for troubleshooting.
- Improved logging.

COMPATIBILITY

- Now fully compatible with Windows 8.
- The Web Browsing test has been completely rewritten to avoid compatibility issues with Windows 8. The previous implementation was based on Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC); the new one is a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) application. The heavy lifting in the test is still done by the WebBrowser2 control. Benchmark scores are affected, in most cases going up by a few percent.
- SystemInfo updated to version 4.15 for Windows 8 compatibility.

BUG FIXES

- Fixed issues in video transcoding tests and added transcoding output file validation. These changes affect benchmark scores.
- Fixed a data compression bug in the storage workloads. Benchmark scores are affected in configurations that use data compression at the hardware level.

-----------------------------

PCMARK VANTAGE VERSION 1.2.0 RELEASED

PCMark Vantage has been updated to version 1.2.0 and is now compatible with Windows 8, with some limitations. Benchmark scores are not affected and scores from this new version are comparable with PCMark Vantage v1.0.2.

As the DVD playback functionality required by some PCMark Vantage tests is not included in Windows 8 by default, we recommend using PCMark 7 for testing Windows 8 systems.

To get the update, download the PCMark Vantage version 1.2.0 installer:
http://www.futuremark.com/support/downloads

The major changes in PCMark Vantage 1.2.0 include:

IMPROVEMENTS

- Trial edition removed. PCMark Vantage Basic Edition is now free and can be run an unlimited number of times without registration or restrictions.
- The benchmark no longer tracks application focus, which helps avoid unintentionally ending the benchmark run. Using the PC for other tasks while running the benchmark will influence the benchmark score and should still be avoided.

COMPATIBILITY

- Now compatible with Windows 8, however, the TV and Movies suite requires DVD playback capability (MPEG2) which is not available in Windows 8 by default. The missing functionality can be added by purchasing the Windows 8 Media Center Pack from Microsoft. Without the Media Center Pack the TV and Movies suite is skipped with a score of 0.
- Windows Mail test now works in Windows 8.
- SystemInfo updated to version 4.15 for Windows 8 compatibility.

ADVANCED AND PROFESSIONAL EDITIONS

- Fixed issues with opening saved benchmark result files.

Humanity’s Last Light will shine on May 14

Deep Silver announces release date for Metro: Last Light

 

Larkspur, Calif., – March 1, 2013 -- Deep Silver today announced that Metro: Last Light, the highly anticipated first person shooter sequel to the extraordinary Metro 2033, will be available on May 14, 2013 in North and Latin America and May 17, 2013 across Europe for PlayStation®3, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.

 

“The new release date is the ideal way to strike the balance between bringing the best out of Metro: Last Light and not keep the fans waiting longer than necessary,” said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media. “We won’t leave that time unexploited and will work closely together with 4A Games to make the game even better. It will receive all the attention it deserves.”

 

In the year 2034, a nuclear war has turned the world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. In Moscow, the tunnels of the Metro have become a new home for the former inhabitants of the city. Within the catacombs, they fight for their survival, fending off hordes of hideous mutants born from the toxic atmosphere, as well as other factions desperate to take control of what little hospitable land remains. As they fight, they also search for a doomsday device that could be the key to their victory. A civil war is inevitable. During these dark hours, the players will embody Artyom, and become the last light for all of mankind.

 

The plot of Metro: Last Light was written by Dmitry Glukhovsky, acclaimed author of the novel Metro 2033 which inspired the creation of both video games. Also, Glukhovsky is responsible for all dialogues in Metro: Last Light. Glukhovskys novels Metro 2033 and Metro 2034 have sold more than 2 million copies worldwide. In 2013, his latest book Metro 2035 will be also available outside of Russia.

“Desktop PC motherboards are all about cutting edge features, performance, and upgradeability, and this is why GIGABYTE was the first motherboard company to adopt dual Thunderbolt ports instead of the single port option,” commented Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at GIGABYTE. “When combined with other innovative products, such as EIZO’s 4K resolution FDH3601 monitor, GIGABYTE Thunderbolt motherboard users can enjoy next generation display options with their existing platform, without having to wait for future 4K resolution standards.”
