DOVER, NH -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Relyco®, a leading provider of business printing and payment solutions, today announced that PS It Matters, an online specialty foods, personal, and corporate gift store, selected Relyco's ENDURA LABEL digital and laser labels to convey its mission of supporting food banks and pantries across the country.
PS It Matters provides specialty foods and gifts at the same price as retails stores and donates 15 percent of the purchase price to the food bank or pantry of the shopper's choice. The impact of each dollar donated is on average four nutritious meals to those most in need. PS It Matters chose Relyco's ENDURA LABEL labels to display how many meals can be provided by the purchase of each item.
"We place a label on each product that displays the PS It Matters brand and tells the shopper or gift recipient how many meals were donated as a result of the donation that came from the purchase of that individual product," said Michael Simchik, co-founder of PS It Matters. "For example, a single jar of jam accounts for four meals, while a bag of coffee accounts for eleven. In a gift set, these and other items combined may contribute to 30 to 100+ meals. Each gift collection of products has an explanatory card that includes a sticker using Relyco's labels that highlights the number of meals provided by the total gift collection purchase."
Since its official launch in June 2012, PS It Matters has provided more than 20,000 meals, putting the organization on track to deliver as many as 40,000 meals by year's end.

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in.

In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company?
