iPhone App Daily Commute Gets Feature Updates Designed to Get Commuters to Work On Time with Less Stress

Greenville, SC (PRWEB) August 31, 2012

With the latest release of the commute iPhone app, Daily Commute, users now have new features and functionality to assist them in their travels. One key feature in this update is a new Tips feed. This feed is regularly updated with commute related tips and tricks from the original creators of the app.

Providing users with helpful information, co-creator Dr. Benton Cofer posted, Few situations invoke panic and anxiety quite so quickly as oversleeping! I was reminded of this just this morning. A minor malfunction in my snooze function resulted in my over sleeping by about 30 minutes. What a way to start the day! What to do? After springing from my bed, I immediately opened Daily Commute on my iPhone, and pulled up my countdown timer. To my immediate relief, I found that I had ~ 50 minutes before I needed to leave the house. Whew! No problem.

Giving commuters the tools and tips needed to be more productive, the user gets more out of life. The average American spends 25 minutes on their daily commute to work (one way), and there is an epidemic of stress related illness. If you are commuting, you are not spending quality time with your loved ones. You are not exercising, doing challenging work, having sex, petting your dog, or playing with your kids (or your Wii). You are not doing any of the things that make human beings happy. Instead, you are getting nauseous on a bus, jostled on a train, or cut off in traffic, says Annie Lowrey writing in

The commute iPhone app, Daily Commute has an easy to use interface allowing the technology to work for you. The app starts by prompting the user to input a name for the commute destination and desired arrival time. The user then starts the app upon leaving for work and stops it upon arrival. The app logs this data and the following day, uses this travel time to calculate a target time to leave for work. The touch of a button will bring up a full screen countdown timer. The background of the timer changes from green to orange and then from orange to red as the target time approaches.The user then repeats the process daily. As the app compiles data, it will then average this data to give a more accurate prediction. The app bases the user's predicted commute time on the best available data, so the more it is used the more accurate it becomes.The end result is a more consistent arrival time at work.

The commute iPhone app, Daily Commute also allows the user to input notes for each individual commute for later review. Trends in commute time can be analyzed in graphical readout as well as in tabulated form. Never before has the average commuter had the ability to easily generate usable data regarding commute time. Never before has there been an app that will use such data to make commuting more predictable and less stressful.

The app is currently available to download from the apple app store. The free version contains ads and limits the number of unique commute destinations to one. The commute iPhone app, Daily Commute may be upgraded by the user to the Pro version for 99 cents. The Pro version of the Commute eliminates ads and allows unlimited entry of unique commute destinations.

Image Line Software Updates & Repositions Edison

(PRWEB) December 19, 2008

Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium (PRWEB) December 18, 2008 -- Image Line Software, the developer of FL Studio, has announced that Edison has matured into a fully featured sample editing and recording tool, deserving of a unique position in the Image Line Software catalog. Edison is now available in VST and a new standalone version (in addition to the native FL Studio plugin format). Image Line has announced the program is no longer part of the 'Juice Pack' plugin suite, and will be sold separately.

"Edison will change forever the way you think about editing and recording audio" noted its developer and Chief Software Architect at Image Line Software Didier Dambrin.

Edison loads into any mixer track (VST effects slot) and then can record or play audio from that position. Users will be excited to learn that it is possible to load as many instances of Edison as their host can contain. Parallel or chained instances of Edison are all possible.

The easy to use interface has more than enough features to satisfy even the most demanding customers. For example -

Reverb Connoisseurs will delight in the Convolution Reverb effect. This allows Edison to 'borrow' impulses from very expensive hardware or real spaces to create an identical reverberation as the original space or hardware (with the particular settings used).

Sound designers lose themselves in the Blur Tool that can literally smear any sound into a lush, spacious and ethereal pad.

For those who demand precision, the Equalize Tool will be a revelation. The user defined envelope can be precisely shaped and then applied to the waveform, tweaked and reapplied until any EQ goal is achieved.

Experimental musicians will have a blast with the pristine quality Time Stretch / Pitch Shift Tool that allows the pitch and formant of the sample can be altered independently.

Beat-makers and sample creators will save hours of work with the Loop Tuner that can loop the unloopable, removing clicks, pops and beating along the way.

Key Edison features:

Optimized for sampler content (supporting sampler region/s & seamless looping).
Drumloop slicing (auto-slicing & slice manipulation)
Quick drag&drop support (between instances or to your sequencer/other plugins)
Variable recording mode (start/stop with host, on audio input, can also work as transparent audio logger)
Time manipulation (time stretching/pitch shifting, scratching)
Effects processing (convolution reverb, blur, linear-phase equalization, etc.)
High-quality resampling for pristine sample rate conversion and pitch shifting
Detailed spectral analysis display mode
Click-free editing
Full undo history
Intuitive editing with key-feature tool-buttons
(Pascal) scripted manipulation of waveforms
Control surface support (FL Studio 8 version)

System requirements:

Operating System: Windows XP/Vista

Processor: Minimum 2GHz AMD or Intel Pentium III compatible with full SSE1 support

RAM: 512 MB

Hard disk space: 130 MB

Plugin formats:


FL Studio plugin

VSTi 2.4 (Win)

Price and availability:

Edison can be ordered from the Image Line Web Shop for US $ 99.

Champion Oil Updates Technical Service Bulletin on Anti-Wear Additives

Clinton, MO (PRWEB) May 20, 2012

Zinc dialkyldithiophosphates or ZDDPs may be the most well known oil additives found in any lubricating oil. In much the same way that aspirin cures many ailments, ZDDPs provide many benefits to lubricating oils, especially engine oils.

This class of additives delivers the anti-wear film necessary to protect metal parts under mixed lubrication where metal-to metal contact can occur. They function by adhering to the metal in the engine and are activated as metal-to-metal contact causes temperatures and pressures to rise. The result is a smooth, glass-like surface that provides excellent protection of metal components.

ZDDPs are also excellent anti-oxidants and work synergistically with hindered phenolic and other anti-oxidants found in engine oils. They can work by decomposing peroxides or by cleaning up free-radicals.

Both of these properties, along with their stability are dependent on many factors, and all ZDDPs are not created equal. Different structures activate at differing temperatures and pressures, some are more stable than others.

It is important that engine oils protect engines in all three lubricant situations boundary, mixed, and fill-film. This is why it is important to have extreme-pressure agents like molybdenum, and multiple ZDDPs that protect against scuffing through the entire spectrum of pressures and temperatures that an engine may experience.

Champion engine oils contain a cocktail of anti-wear additives that protect your engine under ALL conditions and are more stable to heat and water than oils with only one type of ZDDP anti-wear additive.

About the company: Champion Brands, LLC, is a globally recognized industry leader in specialty lubricants for over 55 years. Champion Brands, LLC produces and blends over 300 products including fuel, oil, engine additives, and lubricants for the automotive, racing, heavy truck, agricultural, industrial, and specialty markets.

Daily Safety Check recommends applying Microsoft, Adobe Security Updates immediately, as antivirus software will not protect against latest threats

(PRWEB) April 26, 2012

Adobe and Microsoft both issued critical security updates this week to plug security holes in their products. Customers that do not apply these updates will be vulnerable to hacker attacks even if they have up-to-date antivirus software on their computers.

One of the real misconceptions out there among home computer users is that if they have antivirus software on their computer, they will be safe from cyber attacks. says Jim McKenney, Chief Technology Officer of Daily Safety Check, which automatically applies these security updates every day. One of the main ways that cyber criminals access computers is through these security holes in out-of-date software.

Daily Safety Check recently published a White Paper of a major botnet, showing that 82% of infected computers had antivirus software installed. This is the next frontier in home computer security, says Mckenney. People dont have the expertise or the time to apply regular updates and constantly check security settings. We created Daily Safety Check because we needed a universal approach, with layers of security, that wouldnt require a lot of work or expertise from home users.

To interview Jim McKenney or find out more about computer security issues, please contact media(at)dailysafetycheck(dot)com.

About Daily Safety Check

Daily Safety Check is a next generation computer security company, applying layered security principles to home and business computers. The Home Edition includes antivirus software, plus applies daily security fixes, monitors for hackers and alerts you if you are attacked.
