Did I Turn off the Lights?

Save energy by controlling your home's temperature while traveling.  Check the video feed from your security cameras.  Turn off the security system for a neighbor to enter and feed the cat without giving out a security code.  Turn the lights on and off in different rooms to make potential burglars think that someone is home, or activate the TV at night like you would if you were home.

Hey! I'm a Radio Station

The medical field took us humans apart and analyzed our DNA, thereby placing us in a family, which could be related by matching the elements of our DNA.  Just like the medical field took apart our DNA, the Music Gnome Project took apart the basics of music, such as melody, harmony, rhythm, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics and vocal harmony.  Each part of our DNA makes us who we are, and can compare our DNA association to others in our family.  The Gnome Project makes the same association between families of similar songs.

Hot Selling Devices Spell Great Insecurity Opportunities

OMG your iPhone tracks your movements.  Well yes your Android does to and the wireless companies and Homeland Security and Facebook and Google and  Mom, Dad and .....

How do you think you get those neat coupons when you walk by the store?  How do you think your phone service knows how to deliver a call or your email server to deliver your spam.

You probably can't remember the last time you were alone...really alone.

Sure you thought so but you silly boy/girl !

Getting off the grid is getting even more difficult.  Sometimes it's a bad thing but overall well just don't get paranoid...you're really boring to follow.

Infocomm 2011 News Report

News Announcements from the show

Interview - Expanding Markets and Product Lines

We are firmly convinced that every premise should have automated control for comfort, convenience and safety - along with remote access. Security and energy management are a natural fit, since one system provides information (occupancy, mode, etc) to the other, and both are things that we want remote access on our smart phones and mobile devices. This helps with energy savings. That's the practical side of the business. The fun side of the business is the built-in audio, music servers and colorful touch-screens. So the driving force will be all of the above - especially as we are increasingly connected in this world.

Interview - A/V Equipment Cooling and Ventilation

Digital gear especially is prone to misbehave at elevated temperatures and have its programming corrupted. Expensive electronics fail, and, on occasion, enclosure finishes are discolored. In extreme cases, we've heard of cabinet delamination occurring.

Interview - Outdoor Entertainment Systems

The outdoor A/V market is definitely growing in 2011. We have already started to see an increase in sales with our dealers and distributors, almost twice as much sales as the year before. We are also seeing new building projects beginning to increase, which also drive up our commercial sales.
