Comodos GeekBuddy Delivers PC Users Their Own Personal Geek to Resolve PC Problems Remotely


Jersey City, NJ (Vocus) October 7, 2010

Comodo, a leading Internet security organization, today announced the launch of GeekBuddy ™ - an online support service designed to give live, instant technical assistance to home PC users whenever they have problems with their computer.

The service allows anyone with a Windows based computer and a high-speed Internet connection to receive immediate help from a live Comodo ® security professional anytime of the day, seven days a week.

For an annual subscription, GeekBuddy software will proactively monitor your PC and alert you when there is a problem allowing you to then connect to a Comodo technician for quick resolution. From this point, the technician will securely work with the customer to help correct any performance or system problems to not only correct the immediate issue but to ensure the machine running in peak condition. Typical services include comprehensive malware diagnosis and removal, performance tune-ups, correction of system and driver errors, printer set up, e-mail set up, assistance with software installation and more.

“No other product on the market comes close to GeekBuddy,” said Melih Abbdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO and chief security architect. “This type of proactive, remote support has been available for years at large corporations with dedicated IT departments - but never before at the consumer level. Up until now, consumers would have to spend hours to find a solution, rely upon a trusted family member who is computer savvy or send their computer out for repair, or even worse yet, resort to buying a whole new computer... GeekBuddy changes this by empowering PC users to efficiently and effectively maintain their PC with a single click of a desktop icon.”

GeekBuddy customers can connect to Comodo technicians for help as many times as they want throughout the year – without incurring any additional charges. GeekBuddy also comes with bonus security and productivity software including Antivirus, Firewall, Registry Cleaner, Backup Utility and Uninstaller.

“Our expert support technicians are available round the clock 365 days a year helping users to ensure trouble free computing. In addition to being a great support tool GeekBuddy helps users avoid the loss of valuable files and photos and provides the security and maintenance tools necessary to do so,” said Robert Schaffer, Comodo managing director.

Slap All Of Your Cable Problems


Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) October 25, 2012

Cableslaps (http://www.cableslaps.com) announces the debut and namesake product to conquer the spaghetti of cords and cables that threaten to overwhelm us today.

Building on the bistable spring concept popularized in the 80s slap bracelet but updated with a fully-bonded soft and grippy silicone coating replacing the traditional loose fabric jacket, Cableslaps coddle your precious electronics cords while organizing them securely. Cableslaps are the ultimate in easy and secure cord management.

There are two sizes and six hot colors available for Cableslaps. Both sizes coil-up to about the same diameter but the lightweight and compact small size works great for managing iPod, iPhone, iPad, smartphone, cellphone, and digital camera cables while the large is heavier and has a more powerful coiling action that is best suited to organizing larger cables, laptop cords with power transformers, extension cords and similar applications.

Cableslaps are constructed with a solid steel bistable spring core for durability and a fully-bonded, soft but grippy silicone outer casing to hold and coddle your precious cables. Due to their unique design, Cableslaps do not cause interference with electronic devices. In fact, performing musicians who have tested Cableslaps proclaim that these are the only cable management product they have found that does not add interference or noise even when used with powerful amplification.

Cableslaps are made to fit most applications but they are also easily adjustable if you prefer them to coil-up a little tighter. We could try to explain how to adjust them, but its one of those rare things that is easier done than said so visit Cableslaps.com to see their short video to show the adjustment procedure.

About Cableslaps:

Cableslaps were designed to deal with cord management with all the various cellphone, camera, iPod, and computer cables. While they are not perfect for every application, they are the simplest solution that we have come up with.

InterTech Service to Counter Widely Reported Problems in Automotive, Medical Device and Other Industries Requiring Rigorous Quality Standards

InterTech Service to Counter Widely Reported Problems in Automotive, Medical Device and Other Industries Requiring Rigorous Quality Standards











InterTech Development Company provides no-cost consultations on entire assembly and test system Gage R&R standardization


Chicago, IL (Vocus) April 28, 2010

Responding to the recent rash of reports of quality failures in both the medical device and automotive industries, InterTech Development Company is now providing no-cost consultations on how to develop and maintain strict gage R&R for entire assembly and test systems, not just instruments. Having been called in to solve quality issues for global manufacturers for 35+ years, InterTech’s Testing Applications Lab reports that this failure to differentiate between gage R&R of test instruments vs. gage R&R of entire assembly and test systems is at the root of most quality issues on the public radar and those not yet reported.

Jacques Hoffmann, President of InterTech Development Company, comments, “This assumption that specifying the gage R&R of test instruments as being a sufficient step to maintain quality standards is very widespread but also highly mistaken. Even if quality issues do not rise to the level of the headlines we’ve seen in recent weeks and months, companies are taking a big hit in production inefficiencies created by failing to adequately test to appropriate gage R&R specifications at earlier stages of production and at appropriate points throughout the assembly process. Higher material costs, higher labor costs, and now defective products released to the market--these are exactly the effects of taking a manufacturer’s stipulated gage R&R for a test box and equating it with gage R&R of entire test systems.”

For more information on no-cost consultations on entire assembly and test system Gage R&R standardization, contact Gerald Sim, gsim(at)intertechdevelopment.com , +1- 847 – 679 – 3377 x 250.

InterTech Development Company (http://www.intertechdevelopment.com ) is a world leader in test-centric assembly and test specializing in automated leak and functional testing with 7 patented mass flow and hydraulic technologies, as well as, helium mass spectrometry (ISO-17025 International Standards for Quality Management). InterTech Development Company-engineered solutions are used by hundreds of manufacturers worldwide. InterTech Development Company’s worldwide support organization maintains offices in North America, Asia, and Europe.

New 4 Axis Receiver Solves Industrial Alignment Problems

New 4 Axis Receiver Solves Industrial Alignment Problems










Peabody, MA (PRWEB) July 15, 2009

Pinpoint Laser Systems® is announcing a new four axis Microgage Receiver that provides useful alignment information for evaluating and correcting machinery alignment problems. The new 4D Microgage Receiver measures two linear axes X and Y and their two angular components yaw and pitch. The two linear axes show how well machinery is aligned along a common centerline and the angular readouts show if parallelism problems are present. The new 4D Microgage Receiver is ideal for aligning lathes, turning centers, spindles as well as moving linear slides, rams and pistons, injection molding machinery, moving mechanical sub-assemblies and more. A compact, digital display provides precise linear and angular readings and is easy and intuitive to use.

4D Receiver in useThe method of operation is simple - a narrow laser beam provides a measuring reference line and the 4D Microgage Receiver measures where this laser line lands on an internal detector and determines the position of a machine or sub-assembly relative to this laser reference beam. This receiver will operate over distances of 100 feet or more and deliver a measuring precision of 0.0005 inch and 0.005 degrees; ideal for demanding industrial alignment applications. The Laser Microgage system along with this new 4D Microgage Receiver puts precise measuring and alignment capability right into the hands of plant engineers and manufacturing personnel so that they can monitor and optimize their own production machinery and equipment.

Since 1992, Pinpoint has offered a broad line of easy-to-use products that incorporate lasers, optics, electronics, and solidly built mechanical features. Customers use the tool for both routine and complex measuring and alignment tasks. Pinpoint's measuring equipment is actively used in the aerospace industry, machine ships, paper and textile mills, shipbuilding facilities, extrusion plants, and electronic assembly facilities to name a few. Pinpoint has also worked closely with many manufacturers to develop specialized alignment systems for robotic applications, medical scanning devices and numerous other applications.

For additional information on any of our Microgage products or editorial material, please contact Pinpoint Laser Systems at 800-757-5383 or visit our website at http://www.pinlaser.com.

CHI 2006: HCI?s Potential for Improving Social Problems

CHI 2006: HCI’s Potential for Improving Social Problems










(PRWEB) April 21, 2006

CHI is the world’s most comprehensive conference for human-computer interaction. CHI is sponsored by ACM’s Special Special interest Group on Human-Computer Interaction. This year’s theme is “interact, inform and inspire” and the conference is shaping up to be an event that should not be missed by any one who works with computers – and nowadays, who doesn’t? In addition to offering a broad perspective on the complete human-computer interaction landscape, CHI 2006 will provide a forum for networking with researchers and practitioners in HCI, thereby enabling attendees to bring new ideas back to their own work and community.

Real HCI

In a highly anticipated panel session at CHI 2006, participants will discuss the question of how interactive technologies tackle the major problems facing today’s society. They will present and contrast four very different, yet topical domains – disaster search and rescue, driver safety, and breakdowns in both distributed and face-to-face communications – describing how HCI R&D is achieving measurable advances in each. The audience will be invited to join with panelists in discussing how best to engineer progress in this exciting field.

The forum will be chaired by Stuart K. Card, Senior Research Fellow at Xerox PARC. Co-author in 1983 of the influential “The Psychology of Human-Computer Interaction,” Card is a recognized pioneer in applying human factors in human-computer interaction. He acknowledges that because today’s HCI practices currently emphasize feature design and evaluation of defect-based usability, they may be adequate for mass-market products but are insufficient to meet the demands of society’s major problems. The panel will address the means by which HCI may be engineered to resolve these larger problems in the future. This will require an organized, step-by-step approach, using metrics to guide and measure progress and task analyses and models to frame the design space and predict results.

Although they have different fields of focus, the panel members all recognize the significant role that interactive technologies can play in resolving the world’s important problems. For example:

 Robin Murphy of the University of Florida will discuss disaster management, specifically the means by which unmanned vehicle systems, sensor webs, camera phones and other technologies can and will be used to enable rescue responses at dangerous or previously inaccessible areas within a disaster site.

 Judith S. Olson of the University of Michigan will discuss how good networking capabilities and a variety of technologies support long-distance communication that enables remote corporations, as well as science and engineering industries to work together. She will focus on her team’s three-pronged approach towards implementing and improving HCI in its support of long-distance communications.

 John D. Lee of the University of Iowa will discuss the issue of how HCI can be engineered to improve driver safety. Each year in North America, automobile accidents claim the lives of tens of thousands of people and are the most common cause of death for those aged four to 34 years. Technology has the ability to both enhance (e.g., GPS systems) and diminish (e.g., the distraction of cell phones) driving safety and HCI can augment both its positive and negative effects.

 William Newman from Microsoft in the UK will address the fact that while interactive computers can and do solve many of the world’s problems, they also create quite a few of their own. For example, in the workplace email appears to have passed the point of increasing business efficiency and is now in danger of eroding it. Newman will use examples to illustrate the problem and suggest ways to overcome it.

The “Real HCI” seminar should spark a lively and compelling discussion and anyone with an interest in the future of HCI is bound to find it of interest.
