Distribution of content also entails portable devices, i.e. USB Flash Drive

As a duplicator we get many different request(s) and manufactures are always on the look out for new markets. Supporting their VAR Channel Market first of course.

Microboards, Minneapolis, MN takes a page out of the NEC Sales Manual. Pricing and Availability April 2008. Create the demand prior to shipment and pre-sell everything. With the explosive use of USBs which at times can envy James Bond. MB looks to catapult themselves ahead in this potential market. But what about security of the data?

Welcome in IronKey, what I like is the companies path of
first standardizing your portable media, then secure it. Many CIOs get a rude awakening when they see 5 different types of portable media carrying a companies{or some case personal} information, knowing full well (2) of those units have only the protection of someones pocket.

2008 is the year of mobility, atleast for us. Wireless Virtual World is upon us. Hopefully in the coming months some core issues of mobile work force or working from “any location” can make great strides in the work place. Old school sometimes has this brick and mortor it just cannot shake. The real problem is the people, who can and who cannot.

Flash drives have attacted themselves. We have gone from transfering data between units, too online access. Truthfully I prefer online access, my dream situation:

Lake Winnebago, Wis – Western shore line, late May. Wife hunting her bluegil or perch while I look for Walleye. Notebook, Wireless, SmartPhone just off shore from a bar/grill that is actually a “Hot Spot” for more than
fish. Camera on the Notebook, SmartPhone, heck Camera is in the boat just haven’t figured how to relay the signals and go live.

That is worth seeing vendors…..

When project(s) cross my vision ideas of other customers

home security units (DVR). Remember we’re looking for
video. (storage)

RedSpeed – Illinois

Villages in Il (River Grove, Rosemont, Lisle) are moving
forward with high-tech public safety surveillance networks
for their entire community and affordable wireless internet
access for residents. Win – Win

Rydin Decal – leader in parking ID creates the end point.

Camera, ID, Video, Storage, IP, tablets, now the task is
having them talk to one another. suggestions?

I found a place in Wisconsin, lake access. In fact, garage
is also a boat dock out the back. I have a Lund
picked out, Winnebago chain the largest in Wisconsin

Trust me, everything in Wisconsin is in the chain. My wife
is proof. We taught her how too jig. All I do is drive.
She finds 12″ bluegil, make sure you have lights.

Selling FUN without a Video, HOW?

Continuing on our 2008 theme of bring ideas forward……

This past week in Rosemont, IL was the 29th Annual ChicagoLand Outdoors Show. An yes, despite football, cold weather and house work I did attend. {for those wondering, it’s like fishing, my wife goes or I don’t}

Every year we pass through the numerous displays of toys, trinkets and wonder lures anticipating ice out, {ice fishing really hasn’t gotten us yet} but always look forward too visiting the numerous lodges and fishing camps that bring life back too our little part of the world. But this year, I had a little bug up my crawl….no Video…

Because the tech world we’re in I have become spoiled. @ the CES Show in Vegas, attendees downloaded more than 10,000 programs onto SanDisk flash drives. But here I was still subjected to paper and still pictures, even the web site list of vendors didn’t have links. An the bug start too grow…

My saturday mornings during this time is geared around watching the fishing shows from 6:00am till 10:30am. Almost too the point, when the turkey hunting series start it must be time to get out. And yes I would like to see a video of the lake, cabin and facilities where I’m going to spend the next week fishing. Some cases throw in a little bit about the surrounding area, Rhinelander Wis and Grand Rapids, Minn are wonderful places with many different attractions through out the year.

Chambers that take pride and memberships dues to pay for marketing events like this, have for some reason not taken this medium serious, which is sad. Fishman will all agree, each year we have to go a little further North because that family fishing site is sold into condo’s. …..I have a camera on my boat to find fish, hello
