Connectivity of the new Playstation 4 with outer devices and the web won’t be a problem. Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, as well as Bluetooth features and USB 3.0 ports will enlarge the array of capabilities the console will have.

An innovative feature which will be later on implemented in the new Playstation 4 is the so called Suspend Mode. That will allow users to put the console to sleep thus lowering the power usage to minimum, and after it exits that state any game that has been undergoing before will be immediately resumed.

The Dualshock 4 controllers will feature a small touch pad on their front which will enlarge the actions a Playstation 4 user has, also a micro-USB port and a standard 3.5’’ jack allowing a headset for speaking and listening will be installed. Motion detection will be supported via the gyroscope and the accelerometer within.

Pipelinersales Releases Comprehensive Sales E-Book at Pioneers Festival


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2013

Pipelinersales Inc. announced today the release of an extensive sales e-book entitled, Start it up Right: Startups, Sales, and CRM Solutions. The CEO of Pipelinersales and publisher of the book, Nikolaus Kimla prefaces by highlighting that the book formulates a new and comprehensive attitude toward IT and its use by companies and people. He details how if companies use IT solutions strategically, they can look forward to substantial potential growth and competitive advantages. In order however, to gain these opportunities new and forward-looking views are required which are published in the e-book.

"This book, if you will, acts as the hand of our beloved Dorothy of Oz to pull back the curtain on traditional CRM systems. With their shortcomings revealed, a new paradigm for CRM systems can clearly be seen - one which is rapidly being adopted by forward-looking companies today,” Kimla states. “Instead of being the ‘top-down’ enforcement onto sales that it always has been, CRM becomes an empowerment to sales, allowing them to fully control their sales pipelines and thereby meet and exceed their quotas. Interestingly - as you will see when you read this book - when a CRM solution actually empowers sales, so does it empower the remainder of the company. Here's to the dawn of a new day in the Land of Oz – and for CRM benefit to your company."

The e-book begins more high level focused on assisting the startup with more broad topics and then develops more specifically into topics relating to the sales process and pipeline management. It is artistically formatted with graphical representations. Central among the principles contained in this book, is that the sales department is the key to corporate success more than ever before. It faces new challenges in a time when the Internet has changed a seller's market into a buyer's market. In practical application and thinking, Pipelinersales Inc., is here to empower individual salespeople and return to them their entrepreneurial spirit.

This book is being released as Nikolaus Kimla speaks at the Pioneers Festival in Vienna, Austria. The event celebrates entrepreneurship and innovative future technology. The Pioneers Festival gathers an impressive lineup from the tech scene of startups, founders, bloggers, VCs and innovators – from all over to inspire and be inspired. Set in the heart of Vienna on October 30th and 31st, at Hofburg Imperial Palace, Pioneers Festival educates, entertains and inspires a new generation of pioneers.

Nikolaus Kimla will speaking on Halloween to 2,500 attendees with his seminar entitled “If Money Making is a Sin, Welcome to Hell! – The New Digital Sales Philosophy for Startups and Salespreneurs.” He will detail how companies today operate in a knowledge economy, facing unprecedented multi-complex pressures from many sides, and how this new reality places even greater pressure on sales. Today, all have to be involved in sales process, not only sales alone; the shift has to be on emphasizing and creating an added value for the customers. He will further detail the need of a behavioral change and an organizational shift that can only be achieved through an entrepreneurial approach to sales. Those in sales have to see why it is worth taking extra risks and experiencing a real bonus for the extra miles they go.

The e-book will be available for a nominal fee on Amazon or at the Pipelinersales' website for free with registration.

Sanata-Tech from St. Petersburg, Russia Joins Smart Tweezers Sales Force in Eastern Europe


Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) October 29, 2013

Canadian Siborg Systems Inc. and Sanata-Tech From St. Petersburg, Russia have agreed to join their efforts in marketing devices of Smart Tweezers LCR-meter family including the latest budget model LCR-Reader in quickly expanding Customs Union countries including Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.

Currently the Customs Union is expanding beyond the former Soviet Union countries, participation of India, Turkey and Siria are being considered. At a summit on October 29, 2013 held in Minsk, Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan confirmed their intention to form the Eurasian Economic Union in 2015, on the basis of the Customs Union. Subsequently, Turkey, India, and even Syria could join this new alliance, according to the leaders.

Sanata-Tech is a supplier in Eastern Europe specializing in supplying soldering equipment (Hakko), electrical test equipment and workplace furniture and hand tools (Viking).

"Major portion of our clients are electronic companies dealing with Printed Circuit Boards (PCB)," says Natalia Petrova, CEO at Sanata-Tech, "Any person using soldering equipment finds Smart Tweezers LCR-meter very efficient in testing and characterization of Surface-Mount Devices and it is an indispensable tool for PCB debugging and repair."

LCR-Reader, a successor of Smart Tweezers LCR-meter ST-5, are designed for measuring SMD components as small as 0201 form-factor or about 0.3 mm size. This type of devices allow to measure in addition to the capacitance, equivalent series resistance (ESR) or dissipation factor D, in addition to inductance, resistance or Q. ST-5 LCR-meter can also be used for a continuity and diode test.

Now you have a choice of buying the original Smart Tweezers or LCR-Reader, a new budget model of a tweezer type LCR-meter. A summary of LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers comparison of feature is avalaible in this Table. In a nut shell, the main difference is price, size and accuracy. Smart Tweezers ST-5 is a certified LCR-meter for professionals with a basic accuracy of 0.2%, supplied with a NIST Traceable Calibration Certificate. On the other hand, LCR-Reader outperforming previous models of Smart Tweezers ST-1 to ST-3. With a basic accuracy of 1%, price under $ 200 and weight of 1 Oz it is positioned as a consumer's choice LCR-Meter. It only uses 0.5 Vrms test signal thus limiting its application for ceramic capacitors. It is well known that test signal lower then 1 Vrms results in a underestimated capacitance values for ceramic capacitors, (e.g. see ST-2 User's Manual on p. 16).

The new model, LCR-Reader, is about two times lighter than previous Smart Tweezers models, and is powered by rechargeable Li-Ion battery. Its basic accuracy is about 1% which exceeds specs for models ST-1, ST-2 and ST-3. It has a simplified control by just one button that turns the device on and changes the operation mode.

The following features are abandoned compared to ST-5: component sorting, automatic offset correction,diode and continuity test. The most important drawback of LCR-Reader is the level of test signal which is 0.5 V rms that does not allow to use it for ceramic capacitors, similarly to ST-1, ST-2 and ST-3 it gives a lower capacitance value.

You may also watch a brief demonstration of LCR-Reader on Youtube.

A detailed comparison of features of the LCR-Reader and previous models is presented in this Smart Tweezers Comparison Table.

Feature Summary:

Manual and automatic measurement of L-C-R and ESR
Accuracy of about 1%
Automatic best range
Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery
Low weight of 1 oz (28 gramms)

SwimovateUSA Launches New Website for U.S. Sales


(PRWEB) September 01, 2013

SwimovateUSA, the American division for the original makers of the automatic lap counting swim watch, has launched their website for U.S. sales and dealers. Brad Sorock, spokesman for SwimovateUSA, says: "We are very eager to get our website out to the American public. The Swimovate's revolutionary PoolMate watch has taken over the U.K. swimming and triathlon scene, and we're sure it'll have the same kind of traction here in the U.S."

Swimovate is the company that created the revolutionary PoolMate watch, which allows swimmers to accurately count the number of laps, distance, calories, strokes, and other important measures of their swim, so they can focus on their swimming while they collect data for training purposes. The PoolMate line includes several watches, including the PoolMate Pro which features PC-link ability to upload and graphically analyze swimming data over long periods of time, and the PoolMate HR, which has all of the features of other PoolMates, plus an included chest-strap that makes it the first swimming watch that accurately counts heart rate underwater.

The new website will allow individual purchasers and dealers alike to explore the different models of the PoolMate, and learn more about how these watches can take their swimming to the next level, as well as offer direct-to-consumer rates on all of SwimovateUSA's products.

Swimovate was originally founded in the U.K. by serious swimmers due to the lack of a product on the market that could accurately count laps without needing button presses or pauses mid-swim. Swimovate watches use a revolutionary accelerometer technology that not only counts laps, but also calories burned and even stroke efficiency, which is a measure of how far a swimmer gets based on one stroke. The new website can be seen at http://www.swimovateusa.com
