QuickerTek Offers 20% Off of Solar Panel Chargers

No Comments

Wichita, Kansas – QuickerTek, the technology leader in mobile power and wireless networking products for Apple computers, is pleased to offer 20% off of their 62 Watt Solar Juicz and 30 Watt 2015-2016 Type-C MacBook solar power chargers.

The 62 Watt Solar Juicz Solar Panel packs an impressive improvement in efficiency of more than 39% over the previous Solar Juicz model as a direct result of using new technology, Copper Indium Gallium (CIGS). Faster charge time is provided by higher wattage (62 Watts vs 55 Watts of previous model). Of course, users can charge the laptop battery while using the Solar Juicz at the same time – something not possible using other solar products. This product comes ready to use right out of the box, including an Apple MagSafe 1 or 2 power cable, allowing it to charge a wide variety of mobile devices from Apple as well as your MacBook.

The 30 Watt Type-C MacBook Solar Panel is the only in the world to feature the USB 3.1 adaptor cable which powers and charges the 2015-2016 Apple 12-inch MacBook. New MacBook users are no longer limited where they choose to enjoy their computer, and, gain the satisfaction of protecting the environment. This new solar product powers the MacBook battery for use even while charging the internal battery. Other photovoltaic products can’t offer this same advanced capability. The Type-C MacBook Solar Panel is made with thin film photovoltaic creating a lightweight, foldable design. At only a hair over 11 inches x 6.5 inches folded, and at only 1.3 pounds, it is light and mobile user ready. It is also powerful enough to charge the MacBook as quickly as an Apple AC charger, minimizing downtime.

From August 1st to 31st, QuickerTek is offering 20% off of these products, shaving $240 off of the cost of the 62 Watt Solar Juicz Solar Panel and $60 off of the cost of the 30 Watt 2015-2016 Type-C Solar Panel.

Businesses large and small across the world are deploying Numerics dashboards on their devices and dedicated large TV screens to track their business metrics like live analytics, engagement metrics, revenue and more. While Numerics integrates with many cloud services, a large number of businesses depend on custom designed business software for their day to day working.

Apart from these, Numerics v4.3 adds integrations to popular cloud services like HelpScout and Pinterest. The new version also adds support for revenue and advertising based numbers in the Google Analytics integration. These widget packs include Google Ecommerce, Google Adsense, Google Adwords, Google Ad Exchange and Google Double Click Campaign Manager.

Numerics v4.3 bundles some new features and improvements for the Apple Watch app too.

Numerics now supports Modular Large, Utilitarian Small and Large and Mickey Mouse watch faces.

Highlighting KPIs with background colors in Numerics not only makes the dashboards look wow, but they also help users focus on the numbers that matter the most.

Introducing Red Giant PluralEyes 4.1, Updated Audio/Video Syncing Tool

No Comments

Portland, Oregon – Red Giant today announced an update to its popular audio/video syncing plugin PluralEyes, the fastest, most accurate audio/video sync tool on the market and a key component of the popular Red Giant Shooter Suite. Version 4.1 of PluralEyes includes a number of new features designed for filmmakers and content producers where they need it the most. This update is free to current PluralEyes users.

New features in PluralEyes 4.1 include:
* EDIUS Pro support. Start a project in PluralEyes 4.1 and export the synced project as an FCP 7 XML file into EDIUS Pro 7.5 and 8.

* A new music video workflow. Music videos are often shot with the track playing in the background, over multiple takes and in multiple locations. Now, this tricky sync is no longer a challenge; PluralEyes 4.1 automatically consolidates all takes onto their own track, muting all background audio but the master track.

* Support for GoPro spanning media. To support longer recording times, some cameras record on multiple files or even multiple camera cards. PluralEyes detects and consolidates spanned clips into one. New to version 4.1 is spanning support for GoPro cameras.

* The ability to turn off drift-correction. Users now have the option to turn off drift-correction when the audio drift in a project would be considered minimal, ideal for larger projects when this feature could cause a longer sync time.

*Addressed connectivity issues with the PluralEyes panel for Adobe Premiere Pro
*Resolved hangs when using PluralEyes panel for Adobe Premiere Pro during the “Sending media to PluralEyes” step

Blicke – Simple and Challenging Puzzle Game for iOS

No Comments

Sao Paulo, Brazil – Bivis, an independent game developer, today is very pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Blicke 1.0, the company’s new simple yet challenging puzzle game for iOS devices. Blicke is a unique puzzle game that encourages you to guide colored blocks across the board to take each one of them to their target. The blocks slide until they hit a wall or another block, challenging the player to figure out how to strategically use their pieces as support to create new paths and beat all 72 levels.

The game is intuitive and the difficulty increases gradually. Each level you will discover new ways of using the blocks: You learn that they hit each other, then learn that they can support each other, then learn that some blocks are best to move for last while they support the others, and so forth.

At level 19 you find the gray block, which you can’t move with your fingers, but you can push them throwing your blocks, creating new challenges. The game has some mechanics already seen in other puzzles but innovates by having to use their own blocks as support to beat the levels.

There’s no time or move count limit. It hasn’t any bothersome stipulations for success. It encourages you to experiment, to find solutions in the natural process of leading your blocks around the levels. This doesn’t mean that Blicke is an easy game. On the contrary: there are 72 levels, each increasing in difficulty. Players will have to work hard to solve them all.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 35.8 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Blicke 1.0 is $1.99 and available worldwide through the App Store in the Games category. There will also be an Android version available on Google Play. For more information or promo codes, please contact Mauricio Tollin.

Duplicacy for Mac – A Free and Efficient Deduplication Cloud Backup Tool

No Comments

Clifton Park, New York – Acrosync LLC today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Duplicacy 1.0, their next-generation cross-platform cloud backup tool for Mac OS X. Duplicacy is based on the principal of lock-free deduplication, which allows multiple clients to back up their data to the same storage destination simultaneously, to achieve cross-computer deduplication, without the need for any file locks, thus making it readily work with various cloud storage services.

Thanks to its lock-free deduplication method, Duplicacy allows users to backup their data to most popular cloud storage services without losing access to the essential features that are expected of a state-of-the-art backup tool. The app also supports data backup to local disks and SFTP servers, making it easy to backup user data to Mac or Linux computers, or NAS boxes.

The app also offers an elegant graphical user interface which makes it easy to quickly setup and execute any data backup process, be it to a remote cloud server, or to local storage. Using the simple to follow GUI, backups can be set to create full snapshots of the data, each of which is in fact an incremental backup in the sense that only files that have been changed since the last backup will be transferred. Backups can be scheduled to automatically run at frequencies from every half an hour up to once a week, depending on the customer’s backup requirements. Duplicacy can also be set to send an email after the completion of every backup.

“Duplicacy offers users the flexibility to backup their Mac or Windows computers to almost any available form of storage, be it local, cloud-based, or even their own SFTP server or NAS boxes,” says Gilbert Chen, owner of Acrosync. “We believe Duplicity is a complete backup solution that will meet the needs of every user, whether they’re a personal user who just wants to make sure their single Mac is securely backed up, or the corporate user who has hundreds of Macs or PCs that need to be backed up in a reliable manner.”

Features:
* Incremental Backup: Backs up only the data that has changed since the last backup
* Full Snapshot: While each backup is incremental, it behaves like a full backup for easy restore and deletion
* Deduplication: Identical files are stored as one copy, and identical parts from different files are stored as one copy
* Encryption: Encrypts not only file contents but also information such as file paths, sizes, times, and more
* Deletion: Every backup can be deleted independently without affecting other backups
* Concurrent Access: Multiple clients can back up to the same storage simultaneously
* Snapshot Migration: All or selected snapshots can be migrated from one storage location to another

Duplicacy currently supports a number of popular cloud storage services, including: Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, Microsoft Azure, Dropbox, and Backblaze. It also supports backup to local disk drives, SFTP servers, and NAS boxes.

In addition to using the handy GUI for operating Duplicacy, users can also invoke the backup engine from the command line, offering the flexibility to run the powerful solution from custom scripts. A number of features, such as adding additional storage, copying backups from one storage to another, and changing encryption passwords, are only available in the command line version.

Duplicacy commercial users also gain access to the source code for the app, at no additional charge. Source code access allows users to gain a better understanding of how Duplicacy works, and can be secure in the knowledge that important backups will always be kept safe and will never fail. Users can also customize the powerful Duplicacy source code, to add new features they require in order to match their own unique backup needs.

System Requirements:
* Mac OS X 10.10 or higher
* 64-bit processor
* 21.5 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Duplicacy 1.0 is free for personal use, and is available worldwide exclusively through the Duplicacy website. Commercial users pay $2.00 USD (or an equivalent amount in other currencies), per month per computer. A Windows version is also available for download from the Duplicacy website. Review redeem codes are available upon request.

MAD’s most legendarily moronic features include Spy vs. Spy, The Fold-In, “A MAD Look at..,” Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions and its iconic TV and movie parodies. MAD’s contributors – widely known as “Usual Gang of Idiots” – include such notable names as Al Jaffee, Sergio Aragones, Peter Kuper, and Tim Carvell – although they wisely prefer to downplay their association with the magazine.
