    Palo Alto, CA, August 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- SteamWarShip Studio, the developer of this game, has made a certain breakthrough in the genre of arcade games.

    At first glance, Inflexiball makes a good impression. It is a rather unusual arcade game with the elements of RPG, full of upgrades and enhancements. The recent update significantly increased the number of levels and now the players can enjoy 42 great levels. Besides new quests, items, bricks and bosses are added and the number of levels will increase with upcoming updates.

    According to the storyline, the main character, a scientist, tries to warn people about an imminent threat and to save his father who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. He sets off to fight with aliens who are planning to destroy the planet. During his trip he finds a crashed dirigible and tries to repair it. The mission is to save the planet with the help of main character.

    Let’s look at the game in more detail. The main menu has three options: play, shop and settings. In the settings menu you can choose sensitivity, sound/music. In the game shop there are upgrades for each platform, ball and energy recovery. All these enhancements can be bought with the coins collected during gameplay. Also coins can be bought for cash.

    To pass the levels, one needs to bounce the ball with the help of the platform that is moving via touching and destroying the blocks. The goal is to get rid of these blocks and pick up a necessary element. The level can't be completed without this element. All these boosts and coins fall at random.

    Inflexiball has wonderful graphics. The mixture of Steampunk style, the Victorian era and comics makes the gameplay unique in this genre and brings a lot of fun. Besides, the gameplay is accompanied by pleasant music that perfectly conveys the essence of the game.

    To sum it up, Inflexiball is a great game for those people who are keen on arkanoid games and like challenges.

    Leeds, United Kingdom, August 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- eUKhost Ltd., a leading UK web hosting provider for over 11 years, is pleased to introduce their new solution; Disaster Recovery as a Service on eNlight Cloud. eNlight Cloud has already established itself as an highly innovative, auto-scaling cloud platform, and with DR service on eNlight, its versatility increases even further. Disaster Recovery as a Service is based on cloud computing architecture, a solution ideal for SMBs and Organizations where cost of DR solution is a concern.

    According to Mr. Robert King, the MD of eUKhost - “Many small/ medium businesses (SMBs) lack the budget for their own Disaster Recovery site, but still need a solution that's just as responsive and resilient as their primary site. In today’s highly competitive scenario, even SMBs need to be up and running after a disaster just as rapidly as any enterprise organization as their businesses also rely on online presence. Unfortunately, most traditional DR services are unaffordable for them as they come either at very high cost as they require exactly the same hardware setup at the DR and the main site. This effectively means that the investment in DR site is equivalent to that in main site. Some DR services come with weak guarantees about the amount of data lost or time required to resume operation after a failure.”

    According to the company, the need of a disaster recovery plan is critical these days for organization of any size and type with companies relying on a massive amount of data to run their businesses, storing it longer and retrieving it as needed. This dependency of organizations over the Internet and online business convenience underlines the need of an effective DR plan.

    DRaaS on eNlight Cloud comes with some unique features which offer huge benefits in comparison to traditional DR setups:-
    1. Significant Cost Savings, as DR setup is fully used, and hence fully paid for, only in case of a disaster.
    2. Allows aggressive recovery time objectives (RTO)
    3. Stringent recovery points (RPO) can be set ensure minimal or no data loss
    4. Unmatched Flexibility in terms of cost and utility

    Mr. Robert King adds further, "The sheer dependence of business on online data created a need for a business continuity strategy that will ensure uninterrupted operation and create a competitive advantage for growth opportunities. The “DRaaS on eNlight Cloud” service brings that flexibility, scalability, and rapid provisioning to help accomplish those needs."

    Québec, Canada, August 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- As civil unrest rises across the globe, the technology offered by leading surveillance system manufacturers such as Obzerv Technologies, Inc. is becoming an increasingly important security tool for police forces. The company’s ARGC-2400 long range camera system equips police teams with the surveillance capacity to monitor civilian protests and identify assailants who may cause harm to the general public, at long distances.

    The advantage of the ARGC-2400’s long range camera system capacity is that it enables the solution to be installed on high buildings. This means that the long range camera system is less invasive than dome cameras, which are now found at street corners and near important highways or buildings across the globe. In addition to their ARGC-2400 stationary surveillance system, Obzerv Technologies, Inc. also offers their portable surveillance system, the ARGC-750 camera system, which is based on the same technology as the previous, called active range-gating. This system allows mobile teams to prepare easily during their intervention activities, such as demonstrations and event’s surveillance.

    The ARGC-750 is ideal for applications such as investigations and perimeter surveillance. It’s a camera system that teams can use to read license plates at a distance of up to 500m away and conduct human identification from a distance of up to 1km away. Therefore the ARGC long range camera system supports effective monitoring of crowds within demonstrations and allows for a constant flow of videos and images to be viewed at a control center far from the location. Many high quality images taken by the ARGC long range camera systems have been used to assess and identify the threat sooner.

    Craiova, Romania, August 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- EduLib, a privately held software development company from Craiova, Romania, announces the release of Muse Proxy 3.0. This is the first product of a series that will come from EduLib's new Education and Library Information Discovery suite.

    Muse Proxy is a highly customizable multi-platform proxy server, easy to use and configure, acting successfully as a gateway to authenticated restricted content, rewriting web server, Web Access Management (WAM), proxy server and reverse proxy. It has been used for more than 10 years within the Muse Federated Search Platform to manage the authentication to resources and the navigation to full text, by restoring the server session on end-user browser. Starting with this version Muse Proxy is also commercialized as a stand-alone product.

    Dr. Peter Noerr (1946-2013), MuseGlobal's Chief Technology Officer explains: "Muse Proxy is a 'rewriting proxy', and offers an alternative solution that eliminates the need to configure individual browsers, further reducing the burden on system administrators."

    The major new feature in Muse Proxy 3.0 is the support for Muse Proxy Applications. Muse Proxy Applications provide a fully configurable interface allowing administrators to setup remote or local Data Sources ("Sources") and where end users enjoy a single sign-on for all of the subscribed data. Library Administrators can add Sources to the Muse Proxy Application depending of licensing rights. Each Source stores the necessary code and credentials to get to the target Data Source. In this way, Muse Proxy enables end users to reach all configured targets with a single sign-on and conceals target authentication credentials. Muse Proxy Applications can use configurable login modules such as: User/Password, IP, LDAP, IMAP, SQL, FTP, Custom or any combination.

    "Muse Proxy is Your Gateway to the World! It is everybody's outer and inner world. It summarizes almost everything a library, company or university needs to connect to external as well as internal resources. Its excellent user access and resources management make the product very reliable and trustworthy," said Mihai Popa, CEO at EduLib.

    Muse Proxy 3.0 has also many other features like: end users can now access Muse Proxy using HTTPS, the HTTPS sites can be rewritten, the overall visual interface was improved, the documentation was extended with new information and workflow graphics and many more. Improvements were done to the Muse Proxy Administrator Console too, such as, implemented friendly edit panels, updated interface for better display and more functionality, improved help sections.

    The new features and updates offered by Muse Proxy 3.0 are available from EduLib at http://www.edulib.com/products/muse-proxy/.

    "The features of this product, starting from the multiple IPs feature, which excludes the need of many physical machines, to the intelligent page rewriting using proprietary strategies make this product a state of the art of its kind. This allows web sites URLs to be rewritten without special coding, including JavaScript and CSS resources. The HTTP Cookies returned by the target server in the Set-Cookie HTTP header are also managed by the Muse Navigation Manager in an automatic manner without the administrator intervention. Muse Navigation Manager can be used for session replication and full-text navigation, inter-domain connectivity and accessing authenticated resources," said David Dascalescu, CTO at EduLib.

    Laguna Hills, CA, August 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- California-based company SpotSync has launched a new web-based point of sale (POS) system that could revolutionize the way businesses keep track of their finances. Focusing primarily on franchises, the software is a cloud-based solution that replaces the common hassle of installing, servicing and reconciling a separate POS system for each separate franchise location. Because all information is uploaded to the cloud, the owner has the ability to make changes to the inventory for one or more stores, pull reports and distribute databases to all locations simultaneously. What's more, the software has the ability to be used whether the Internet is working or not, and it also offers the option for 24/7 tech support. With the ability to be used on any computer or tablet (and soon smartphones), SpotSync is poised to become an indispensable asset to any owner with a sales-based business.

    Like many companies that have great solutions to real problems, SpotSync needed an efficient way to explain their product and to show business owners how they would benefit from switching to their solution. That's when they turned to Fire Starter Videos, a Hollywood-based animation studio that specializes in helping companies explain what they do using the power of animated videos.

    CEO Michael Fitchett says, "With so many incredibly useful attributes, we really needed a clear, memorable way to show people exactly what SpotSync is capable of doing for a business. Our product essentially gets rid of the time-consuming process of individually updating each separate franchise, and our video really illustrates how much time and effort an owner could save if they sign up with us."

    To sign up for a free 30-day trial of SpotSync and find out more, please visit: www.spotsync.com.

    Fire Starter Videos make all kinds of animated videos from whiteboard animation videos, to animated cartoon videos to videos that demonstrate software.

    About TUT
    In its logo, the Tshwane University of Technology claims that “we empower people” thus committing itself to the concepts of Diversity, Ethics, Relevance, Entrepreneurship, Care, Partnerships, Professionalism and lastly, Quality.

    TUT awards qualifications from national diploma level through to bachelor of technology degrees. Students may also continue with postgraduate studies towards master’s degrees and doctorates.

    Why choose a University of Technology?
    One of the strong features of obtaining a qualification at a university of technology, is the specialization in a chosen field. Furthermore entrepreneurship carries a lot of weight in the students’ education, since they are taught new ways of thinking and approaching their careers to become job creators rather than job seekers in the market,

    It is a fact that South Africa is still in dire need of people suitably qualified in science, engineering and technology, the so-called SET courses. TUT offers numerous courses in these fields. But apart from academic qualifications, the university also offers programmes to equip students with specific skills to prepare them for the world of work. Some of these programmes especially those aimed at improving communication, writing, reading and interpersonal skills, form part of their academic programme.

    TUT is divided into seven faculties:
    - Faculty of Economics and Finance
    - Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment
    - Faculty of Humanities
    - Faculty of Information and Communication Technology
    - Faculty of Management Sciences
    - Faculty of Science
    - Faculty of the Arts

    At TUT the emphasis is on:
    - Cutting edge technology
    - Innovation through to commercialization
    - Problem-solving skills
    - Research and Innovation
    - Partnerships and networks
    - Technological incubators, technology stations, centres and institutes
    - Community engagement

    Source: Able-HD

    Pasadena, CA, August 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Able-HD, a technology start-up whose first offering is a lightweight, portable HD monitor, reaped enough backing on Kickstarter to exceed its initial goal, in just hours of project launch. The portable HD monitor for laptops and smartphones is gaining impressive support, currently boasting 360 backers on the popular crowdfunding website. With 23 campaign days left, Able-HD feels encouraged about reaching its stretch goal, and ultimately bringing the monitor to production.

    Starting as a personal DIY project, Nell Vh, thought leader and concept creator, created Able-HD because of his own use of multiple monitors to help with productivity on a daily basis. “I think you’ll find, most people are like me when it comes to using multiple monitors, or gadgets, in the work place,” says Rona. “PC shipments are decreasing, target sales are not being met, etc. Today, most people choose to use a laptop, tablet or other gadgets - including me.”

    While laptops are portable, there is currently no convenient way to travel with multiple monitors. This void in the marketplace led Vh to create a slimmer 17” LED monitor, with 1080p resolution, that can be connected to any laptop, making it convenient to use while traveling. Not only is this HD monitor great for increasing productivity while away from the office, the device can also be connected to a smartphone, giving gaming advocates and movie buffs an opportunity to view their favorite games or movies on a larger screen, even on the go.

    As of today, Able-HD has ­­­$39,816 in funding. The project has been ranked on the Kickstarter Hot List, according to Kickstarter tracking site, Kicktraq. The campaign has 23 more days live and the company hopes to achieve additional funding for the project during the remaining time.

    “I could never have imagined the amazing support from the Kickstarter community,” said Vh. “Knowing that so many people are intrigued by the product, means there is a definite need in the marketplace, and I am humbled to provide it.”

    If interested in supporting this Kickstarter hopeful, multiple reward levels are being offered:
    $35: 1 unit of Adapter mainboard + charger.
    $95: Early Bird of 1 set of Able-HD Prototype series.
    $110: 1 set of Able HD Prototype series.
    $130: 1 set of Able-HD Prototype series + Custom Size of LED Screen.

    Due to the overwhelming response to the campaign, Able-HD has just added a stretch goal. If the campaign reaches $75,000, all backers who pledge $135.00 or more, will receive a limited edition gift.

    To pre-order the affordable Able-HD monitor and track the campaign, visit the Kickstarter page.

    CHICAGO, IL, August 14, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Since Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) compliance regulations require that all businesses transmitting, processing or storing cardholder data must follow the PCI DSS guidelines, a new school of thought suggests that reducing scope can help achieve compliance more quickly and easily. Terrence Howard, founder of PCIHosting.com (http://www.pcihosting.com) says that this approach offers a more creative solution toward achieving compliance.

    "The idea of changing scope instead of scrambling to install an entirely new system offers a great solution for businesses to become compliant more easily," explains Howard, whose company helps businesses find PCI compliant web hosting services. "It's more convenient, more cost-effective and the end result offers just as much safety for consumers."

    The PCI DSS guidelines are a set of standards that companies are required to follow if they are responsible for transmitting, processing or storing cardholder data. The guidelines address specific concerns ranging from virtual security like firewalls to the physically security of hardware facilities and how paperwork containing cardholder data is stored.

    Determining the compliance requirements for any business begins with an evaluation of current operations to determine whether compliance is necessary, or if new strategies can be adopted that bypass the need for compliance. For example, older computer systems may still use full credit card numbers as customer account numbers. Revamping this outdated system to assign neutral account numbers instead would reduce actual card processing down to a central and more manageable amount.

    "Although there will still be costs associated with changing any existing internal systems, at least this limits the amount of upgrading older companies would have to accomplish in a short amount of time," says Howard. "Companies wouldn't require the same level of PCI compliance services if they restructure their premises, so they'd enjoy a significant cost savings compared to a total overhaul."

    Another option that would drastically reduce the scope of PCI compliance would be to limit the frequency that credit card information is handled at all. For instance, replacing a stored card number with a token system instead offers businesses the same level of convenience, yet with a greater level of security for cardholders. Compliance vulnerabilities are lowered through tokenization as well.

    Companies also have the choice to outsource card processing completely to a third party, shifting the compliance responsibility over to processors that already have the right infrastructure and routine to address security issues. Specialist providers who already have the right tools in place can provide higher levels of compliance at a lower cost far more easily than individual businesses who are facing multiple hardware and software upgrades in order to become compliant at all.

    For organizations who do need to retain the power to process, store or transmit cardholder data, limiting processes to a minimum number of systems that are then upgraded to the highest security levels provides an acceptable cost-benefit hybrid for companies still struggling to attain compliance. After that, an outside security consultant can determine any remaining vulnerabilities through a series of system tests. In this way, compliance is still achieved, yet the amount of compliance needed is reduced to one or two systems rather than addressing the full internal network.

    PCIHosting.com (http://www.pcihosting.com) is a leading source of information on the PCI compliant services industry. Established in 2009, PCIHosting.com keeps up with the latest industry news and provides guides for merchants, assessors, processors and financial institutions on compliance issues. The company also provides free consultations for clients seeking PCI compliant hosting and dedicated servers.

    ROAD TOWN, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS, August 14, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- GOptions.com has reported that it has seen a huge influx of registrants via its iPhone app in the last quarter. The figures have surprised the company as the volume of trades driven via the app has caused a massive spike in the company's volume of trades. The actual figures have yet to be released but the change in volume was reported to be an increase of 44% increase in trading volume all created by the app's introduction in the marketplace.

    The company, which specializes in binary options trading stated that it was a completely unexpected development. Initially allowed traders to open and follow trades on longer term expiries of the binary options. Jarrod White, the company's head of research was quoted stating that "the iphone app was honestly an afterthought, just a way to keep traders active on the go. But with the way the app has been accepted by the trading public, we know the future of binary options trading is certainly mobile. Our efforts are now focused strongly on mobile."

    But with these new reports on how users are using the app, the company has decided to expand the offering on the app to the most popular for of trading which is 60 second options. This form of trading generates more than 40% of total volume for the company and the introduction of this feature in the coming months should create even more volume.

    The app, introduced just a few short months ago is already one of the most popular iPhone binary options trading apps in the app store today. The app features some very important trading features including the ability to preset your default assets and even more useful is the ability to preset your default trading amount. The reason this is so critical is that these features aren't available on the web based platform meaning each time the site refreshes, all the settings you had refresh as well. For traders, this can be frustrating and the app solves this and other web based issues. These are the technical factors that have led to the success of this app and can only be built on as we look to the coming months.

    Goptions is a binary options brokerage operated and owned by Massive Consulting. The company has been involved in forex and binary options trading since 2009 and has a wealth of experience and knowledge in the field. The innovative approach has led to the company carving out a niche of both hard core traders as well as novice first timers alike. For more information, please visit goptions.com

    PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 14, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Oregon Scientific, the company behind the kid-friendly tablet known as MEEP reviews the best ways to provide children with a fun tech experience while simultaneously assuring parents that their young ones are safe during use. Although many parents may allow their children to use devices tailored for older users, Oregon Scientific has created a product that is ergonomically designed for youth aged six to 11. In addition, the MEEP is a device that features many online safety features to prevent young consumers from viewing or engaging in inappropriate Internet activity.

    According to a recent article from CoolMomTech, the need for greater protection--both for children and the actual tablet device--has risen as youth have grown more inclined to use these popular tech products. For instance, the article encourages parents to consider reviewing protective cases to ensure that tablets remain unharmed from rambunctious activity that children typically engage in.

    While there are many protective cases on the market for standard tablets designed for adult use, Oregon Scientific, creators of the MEEP, reviews its product as one that can offer more comfort to the parent. In a recent press statement, Oregon Scientific explains, "The MEEP tablet features a colorful and durable silicone sleeve that provides a safe grip to young users. While designing the product, we understood the importance of developing a product that was responsive to younger hands. As a result, the MEEP fits perfectly in a child's hands and is, therefore, less prone to damage."

    In terms of protecting children from inappropriate content found on the Internet, CoolMomTech recommends a great amount of apps that can help establish kid-safe browsers so younger users can explore the Web at no risk. However, according to MEEP reviews from consumers, the Oregon Scientific kid-friendly tablet offers exceptional built-in protections that can easily be managed through the parental portal, maximizing a user's online safety. In addition to managing browser safety, parents can also approve or disapprove communications that their child may have with a third party user.

    According to the CoolSafeMom article, there are also many features found in standard tablets that can help parents establish a kid-friendly device. The article suggests, "There are built-in safety features on all tablets that enable you to block access to certain features like Internet access and downloading apps." However, those with the MEEP tablet will find that such comprehensive management is unnecessary.

    "Based on the MEEP reviews we have received from satisfied parents, our kid-friendly tablet makes it so much easier to control these safety features, allowing adults to have their own devices and not have to toggle back and forth between security settings," Oregon Scientific concludes in its press statement.

    ABOUT:

    Oregon Scientific, creator of the MEEP reviews the best ways to encourage children to learn through use of interactive tablet technology. As such, this tech company manufactures and markets the high quality tablets for children aged six to 11. Instead of creating tablets that are not appropriate or durable for children, the company is passionate about developing top-notch tablet technology designed for entertainment and learning with many safe and customizable options.

    SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - August 16, 2013) - Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) today announced that Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (Shentel) (NASDAQ: SHEN), a leading regional U.S. telecommunications service provider, has updated its dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) fiber-optic network with Cisco's Coherent DWDM technology to support 100 Gigabit per second speeds to its subscribers throughout Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland. The Cisco ASR 9000 Series router will provide resilient high-speed IP services.

    Shentel, the first service provider to deploy Cisco's 100G network solution within Virginia and West Virginia, will be able to offer multiple 10G or 100G wavelength services.

    Since deploying its 100G network in July 2013, Shentel is able to deliver more bandwidth to meet business and residential customers' current and expected demands for voice, data, video and cloud services. The optimized network provides a variety of on-demand 100G services, including seamless 10G or 100G hand-off.

    Shentel updated its existing Cisco network to 100G coherent DWDM, which offers plug-and-play-like functionality that can be configured to meet a customer's demand for bandwidth. This elastic core is optimized to provide multiple 100G support, as required, and supports customer demand for multiple 10G service on-demand. As Shentel continues to build or partner to expand its fiber network, the company's highly flexible and scalable new Multi-Degree Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (MD-ROADM) DWDM 100G network can be expanded further into its Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland markets quickly and without requiring new hardware. 

    Recognizing the continuing rapid growth of IP traffic on its network, Shentel has begun deploying the Cisco ASR 9000 platform. Since the first deployment in 2010, Shentel has been upgrading its Cisco7600 network to the ASR 9000. The Cisco ASR 9000 will serve as the foundation for next-generation Carrier Ethernet networks, providing up to 96 terabits (Tbps) per system, allowing Cisco to evolve its service provider architecture to deliver capabilities for the Next-Generation Internet, which must be more mobile, more visual, more virtual, and more simple to manage.

    "AutoGrid's DROMS is the only 100% hardware-vendor neutral demand response server in the market today," said Dr. Amit Narayan, AutoGrid's CEO. "AutoGrid doesn't build or sell hardware of its own, which means that our ecosystem partners can work with us as they bring their hardware and service offerings to the market assured that we will not compete with them by offering overlapping products," said Dr. Amit Narayan.

    AutoGrid's technology is already compatible with software, and hardware based on either OpenADR 1.0 or OpenADR 2.0a and other legacy and proprietary technologies from over 100 companies. By providing a unified view of all resources available to utilities and service providers across their residential, commercial and industrial programs, DROMS is able to achieve higher yield from these programs and enable them to seamlessly transition to the latest standards.

    "As an Alliance Board Member, AutoGrid is at the forefront of the creation of an open standards based ecosystem that benefits all players," said Rolf Bienert Technical Director, OpenADR Alliance. "Using a standardized platform, utilities and their customers can much more readily access technology that will continue to further the growth of demand response and energy efficiency markets."

    Fujitsu's (PINKSHEETS: FJTSY) VEN also received the OpenADR 2.0b certification. AutoGrid's VTN server was able to send signals to Fujitsu's VEN, demonstrating interoperability.

    "AutoGrid has created a software tool that provides value and compatibility with an increasingly important standard," said Dr. Ulrich Herberg, Researcher at Fujitsu Laboratories of America Solutions for Electricity Distribution Networks. "We are thrilled to be leading the market with cutting edge standards together."

    DROMS is transforming the DR market by replacing proprietary infrastructure with open standards based software delivered through an ultra-scalable, highly secure, and reliable cloud-based service. DROMS cuts the cost of implementing demand response programs by up to 90 percent while increasing the "yield" in electrical power by 30 percent or more. Additionally, DROMS can fine-tune power consumption continually, not just during peak power events. It has been tested to simultaneously support over one million OpenADR clients, making it the only software solution that can be deployed equally effectively for small pilots as well as large-scale deployments across residential, industrial and commercial customers. Last week, Austin Energy also announced the first live field implementation of OpenADR2.0 standard using AutoGrid's DROMS system.

    "AutoGrid's decision to embrace OpenADR 2.0b is further evidence of the value of this open standard to multiple stakeholders. As OpenADR 2.0b gains momentum national and internationally, companies like AutoGrid will continue to make automated demand response more pervasive and cost effective," said OpenADR pioneer Mary Ann Piette, Research Director, Demand Response Research Center, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
