Hot New Products From Memorex That Dads and Grads Can Really Use

M-Flyer, 16X External DVD Recorder and Director's Cut Mini DVDs Deliver the Latest Must-Have Technologies

CERRITOS, Calif., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Dad doesn't really need another tie, and your favorite graduate will likely lose that fancy pen. But hot new gadgets from Memorex are what Dads and Grads can really use this year. From the M-Flyer(TM) USB flash drive, to the 16x External DVD Recorder, to fun and functional Director's Cut Mini DVDs, Memorex delivers the high-tech products Dads and Grads are sure to love.

M-Flyer(TM)

Memorex takes mobile storage to new heights with M-Flyer, the newest member of its TravelDrive(TM) family of USB 2.0 flash drives. Dad can always keep digital pictures of the kids close at hand, and the new Grad can impress the boss with instant access to important files, thanks to this executive-style USB flash drive. M-Flyer features a sleek and aerodynamic design, top-of-the-line speeds and capacities, a patented retractable USB connector, software suite, and a number of convenience accessories. Similar to Memorex's other TravelDrive flash drive products, M-Flyer is ideal for transferring all types of digital files from computer to computer -- even from Mac to PC -- and back again.

Just as its sleek, aerodynamic look harkens to the name, M-Flyer soars to the top of the USB flash drive market with category-leading file transfer speeds. The brushed aluminum casing and elegant curves of M-Flyer reinforce the upscale image of this premium product, which is ideal for executives and anyone with discriminating tastes about their high-tech gear. M-Flyer has a suggested retail price of $69.99 for 512MB of capacity, $119.99 for 1GB of capacity, and $219.99 for 2GB of capacity.

16X Dual-Format, Double-Layer External DVD Recorder

Recording, editing and saving home movies, precious photos and important data is fast and easy with the industry's top external DVD recorder. Named the number one external drive by PC World and the "Best Buy" in its May 2005 issue, this drive is sure to impress Dads and Grads with the latest recording speeds; double-layer technology; top of the line software suite; and sleek, stackable exterior housing.

This Memorex drive burns single-layer DVD+R/-R discs at speeds up to 16X and new double-layer DVD+R9 discs at speeds up to 4X. That means that Dads and Grads with no time to spare can burn DVD+R and DVD-R discs in just seven short minutes -- and a full DVD+R9 disc in about 50 minutes. They can also burn up to 8.5 GB of extended length movies, music and photos onto double-layer discs, which provide 80 percent more recording capacity compared to single-layer discs. The Memorex 16X Dual-Format, Double-Layer external drive is available at an estimated retail price of $179.99.

Director's Cut Mini DVDs

For the Dad or Grad who plans to video tape summer vacation adventures, Director's Cut Mini DVDs come packaged in a movie reel-style metal tin and include several safeguards that help eliminate threats to DVD preservation.

At eight centimeters in diameter, Director's Cut Mini DVD-R discs record up to 30 minutes of video and are ideal for use with direct-to-DVD camcorders like the Sony Handycam(R). The discs also provide up to 1.4 GB of mobile storage for multimedia presentations, videos and MP3 files. For fun and style, the DVDs feature a Hollywood-themed disc print that resembles a movie director's marker board.

A unique movie reel-style, metal storage tin comes with every package of Director's Cut media. Reminiscent of movie vault storage, these tins help maintain the integrity of important recordings by preventing exposure to light, one of the top threats to proper DVD preservation. Director's Cut DVDs also feature Memorex's DuraLayer(TM) technology, a special scratch-resistant hard coating that eliminates other threats to DVD preservation like dust, debris and rough handling.

Director's Cut DVDs are also available in a standard, full-sized DVD+R version that is ideal for transferring VHS tapes to DVD and saving home movies, in addition to archiving up to 4.7 GB of digital photos, music and data. A 10-pack of 1.4 GB Director's Cut Mini DVDs with movie-reel tin retails for a suggested price of $17.99. A 10-pack of standard 4.7 GB Director's Cut DVDs with movie-reel tin lists for $17.99.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices.

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.

Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
