Akitio's New Neutrino Thunder D3 Certified for Mac and Windows PC's

World's first dual-bay, dual interface storage solution with Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 is now certified for use with both Mac and Windows PC's

Brea, Calif. - August 27, 2013 - Akitio, a leading manufacturer of Thunderbolt and Cloud storage solutions, announced today that the Akitio Neutrino Thunder D3 with Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 has received certification for both Mac and Windows PC's. The Thunder D3, with speeds of over 770MMB/second, will be available in September 2013.

The two-bay unit was designed to hold two 2.5" hard drives or SSD's with a drive height of up to 15mm. This enables the Thunder D3 to hold drives that many other 2.5" form factor enclosures cannot. The Thunder D3 is also extremely compact and portable and features two removable drive trays for easy installation and removal of drives.

"Thunderbolt was once thought of as a Mac only interface, but we are now seeing more and more Windows computers being released with built-in Thunderbolt ports", stated Richard Wright, Director of Global Distribution, Akitio. "We think it is great that Windows users will now have access to the incredible speeds that Thunderbolt provides and we are proud to be considered leaders in the field of Thunderbolt technology."

The new Thunder D3 now joins a growing list of Thunderbolt products from Akitio, including the one bay, bus-powered Neutrino Thunderbolt Edition and the two-bay Thunder Duo with two Thunderbolt ports.

The Thunder D3 will be available in capacities up to 4TB. As with other Akitio products, the Thunder D3 will be available at Akitio.com, Amazon.com and at other online and retail outlets throughout the world.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
