Hosting.co.uk Becomes First and Only MEGA Reseller in the UK
Hosting.co.uk looks to become one-stop shop for developers, announcing reseller agreement with new MEGA service
LUXEMBOURG, Jan. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The recently launched MEGA cloud storage service offers significant enhancements over previous service providers, both for businesses and individual users. Recognizing this value, Hosting.co.uk inked a deal to become an authorized reseller of MEGA service. Already an established force in the web hosting sector, Hosting.co.uk sees this arrangement as a golden opportunity to add another layer of value to its already superior service.
The developers behind MEGA analyzed the weaknesses among the current leaders in cloud storage. The file system was perhaps the most glaring shortcoming in many cloud storage technologies. In general, users must create and maintain files within the system. Sharing and collaboration is possible, but there needless hurdles to be overcome. In many cases, once-eager users drop out of the cloud, as they discover not everything is as simple as advertised. MEGA, on the other hand, embraces sharing as one of the essential principles of its service. Cross-account folder sharing is as simple as a mouse click. Even individual users can expect an improved experience -- MEGA can function seamlessly as a drive letter or file system mount.
Data security is a perennial concern for devotees of the cloud. Perceived vulnerability has likewise been an argument against embracing cloud storage wholeheartedly. Traditionally, server-side 128-bit encryption has been the sole defense against hacking and exploitation. MEGA features a browser-based encryption tool to which only users have access. This is a noteworthy step up from the security status quo. It's worth noting also that more user control nearly always equates to a better user experience.
MEGA does not require users to download any proprietary software. Instead, users can access their stored data from any system, anywhere, at any time. Data transfer is managed entirely on the server side. A "resume" function allows users to pause and restart transfers as necessary. Thanks to its substantial network of data centers, syncing of small or medium files is all but instantaneous.
"MEGA represents the next leap forward in secure cloud storage," said Hosting.co.uk's Frederick Schiwek. "For the cost of a cab ride, users gain access to up to 500GB of secure storage space. Speed is a big selling point, too: MEGA operates enough worldwide data centers to ensure rapid file transfers. Best of all, users have control over the encryption and decryption of their own data. We know that our customers will gravitate towards a service that puts them in charge."
Although based in the United Kingdom, Hosting.co.uk is pleased to offer its services to users across the globe. The company's high-capacity data network and top-shelf web hosting technology make geography virtually irrelevant. Versatile and responsive, the company caters to a myriad of specialized hosting needs, including hosting for WordPress, Magento and Drupal, as well as the content management system Joomla!. Naturally, Hosting.co.uk guarantees near 100% uptime, round the clock technical support and a competitive pricing structure. When one combines the exceptional hosting packages offered by Hosting.co.uk with the cutting edge cloud storage offered by MEGA, it's a sweet deal for anyone looking for an advantage in web development.
Even though it's just hatched, the MEGA team has its sights firmly set on the future. The company behind MEGA is currently courting new investment partners, as well as looking for more opportunities to collaborate with existing service providers.
Hosting.co.uk combines industry expertise with unparalleled customer service and technical support. With a data network based in the United Kingdom, the company offers its remarkably affordable service throughout Europe, North America and the World. The recently launched affiliate program signifies that the company is looking toward a bright future.

Agero's Keynoter At CTS Outlines Automaker Solution For Efficiently Integrating And Maintaining In-Vehicle Apps
- Shifting Reliance on Cloud Rather than In-Vehicle Hardware or Smartphones to Host and Synchronize Apps over Vehicle's Lifetime
- Automakers Must Retain Control Over In-Vehicle Content and Interface
- In-Vehicle App Experience Must Be Differentiated from Smartphone
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At this year's Consumer Telematics Show (CTS), keynote speaker Frank Hirschenberger presented a powerful solution to one of the most vexing problems facing automakers in the Digital Era: how to help drivers safely maintain, access and upgrade the myriad applications found on smartphones and in-vehicle systems.
As Hirschenberger detailed in his talk, automakers need to migrate apps out of devices and into cloud-based servers where they can develop, deploy, and update apps with ease. (To see a video of Hirschenberger's presentation, click here).
Hirschenberger directs product innovation development at Agero Connected Services, the long-time telematics provider to global automakers. Agero used the annual forum on in-vehicle infotainment as a springboard to unveil its unique AgeroView? cloud delivery platform and DevKit. Just prior to CTS, Agero also announced its strategic partnership with XSe on development of an automotive-quality, connected reference platform for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems.
"AgeroView is all about giving automakers greater control over managing change. Auto manufacturers need the ability to easily deploy and update connected content and services, and even the human-machine interface within vehicles, thereby ensuring continual compliance with changing regulations or guidelines,'' said Hirschenberger. "By moving apps to the cloud where they can be developed, deployed, and updated with ease, automakers will no longer have to worry about the capabilities of the smartphone or in-vehicle hardware. Any content delivered to any device. THAT is the target.''
The AgeroView platform delivers benefits to all major stakeholders in the automotive chain:
-- For vehicle product planners: Freshness of applications and content for
the life of the vehicle.
-- For engineering: The long-sought flexibility in design as well as
commonality across devices.
-- For vehicle platform teams: A new way to differentiate their products.
-- For automobile dealerships: A channel for more personalized customer
interaction through situation-aware messaging.
-- For vehicle owners: Satisfaction with their vehicle purchase and
spurring greater loyalty to their automobile brand.
Over the past two years, the number of apps being delivered to in-vehicle head units has steadily increased, with the most popular being location-based information and entertainment such as Internet radio. A recent Gartner report found that "47 percent of all U.S. vehicle owners are at least 'likely' to use mobile applications in their vehicle as long as it is safe to do so." (See Gartner report, "U.S. Consumer Vehicle ICT Study: Web-Based Features Continue to Rise," December 13, 2012.)
With demand for in-vehicle apps projected to grow in 2013 and beyond, virtually every automaker is evaluating content that helps differentiate its product in the automotive marketplace. But severe constraints still limit early app deployments, Hirschenberger emphasized.
Development costs to launch an app and change an app are substantial, he said, with little consumer willingness to help defray that cost. And the likelihood is high, given the pace of change in consumer electronics, that an app will require an update beginning the day the vehicle model launches, not to mention at many intervals during the lifetime of the vehicle. Furthermore, an application developed for one in-vehicle infotainment system may not be portable to different screens, different control sets, and different operating systems.
To avoid these limitations, Hirschenberger stated that a suitable content-delivery platform must include these basic characteristics:
-- The capability to introduce or update one single application (i.e., new
features, new functionality, new content mash-ups, graphical user
interface changes) across the entire vehicle line-up. Moreover, it must
be able to update incrementally (no complete re-compilation and
re-download of application) regardless of the vehicle electronics.
-- Automobile manufacturers must be able to easily change the
human-machine-interface (HMI) over the lifetime of the vehicle. Dynamic
HMI is necessitated by multiple factors; the need to incorporate current
best practices in reducing the risk of driver distraction; to facilitate
customer personalization; to augment the automaker's brand image, and to
adapt to advances in user interface technologies such as speech
recognition, haptic and gesture control, and heads-up displays.
-- Utilization of a Context Proxy must be open to application developers
and capable of adding application level logic.
-- In-vehicle applications must be capable of dynamically and intelligently
choosing the optimum data pipe with time-variant and service-based
-- There can be no direct dependence of application deployment on any
particular in-vehicle infotainment operating system.
-- Content delivered to the vehicle must be synchronized with the
customer's digital life, specifically smartphones, tablets, networked
By relying on a cloud-based platform, vehicle owners gain a better integrated, more personalized, and more feature-rich menu than what's available today on a smartphone. "Automobile manufacturers must deliver an experience different than what their customers experience with their smartphones," Hirschenberger emphasized. "This will not only ensure a safer interface while driving, but also build greater perceived brand value."
While Agero's immediate focus is on platform development, Hirschenberger acknowledged that the company plans to provide an off-the-shelf set of apps that automobile manufacturers can use as a starting point. Most likely these apps will involve navigation, location-based services, messaging, infotainment, and entertainment.
Agero centers its value proposition to automakers on its ability to serve a full scale of telematics (connected vehicle) needs from "one-stop-shop" to "best-of-breed." The company's success is evidenced by the variety of automakers it serves under private label (brands associated with ultra-luxury, premium, mass market, and alternative fuel vehicle segments).
Agero Connected Services (ACS) is a leading provider of private-labeled, connected vehicle services for the automotive, insurance, and aftermarket industries. Based in the Dallas, Texas area, ACS launched the connected car market over 15 years ago and currently manages systems it developed for 11 global automotive brands.ACS is a division of Medford, Mass.-based Agero, Inc., the leader in roadside assistance, claims management, and emergency services in the automotive and insurance industries.

Available in the Relativity Ecosystem, the new integration enables users to launch and manage Zoom from an integrated tab within the standard Relativity GUI. This tab is offered at no additional cost for Relativity users who have licensed Equivio Zoom.
The all-in-one solution features a unified GUI and seamless data flows, making it easy for Relativity users to benefit from the full suite of Zoom functionality without leaving the Relativity environment. This integration provides seamless access to all Zoom functionality and data from within Relativity, creating a straightforward, intuitive user experience.

Will Rogers Institute And Covenant Health Offer Free Stop Smoking App To Help Kick The Habit
BURBANK, Calif., Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ready for a healthier, smoke-free you? Quitting smoking isn't a breeze, but the Will Rogers Institute has partnered with Covenant Health in Knoxville, Tennessee, to create a smartphone app with tried and true strategies that will help you quit smoking.
The Stop Smoking Mobile App lets you create a profile to identify the number of cigarettes you smoke on a daily basis, price per pack spent, as well as the "triggers" that stimulate your need to smoke. Based on a short questionnaire, the app will then generate a realistic "quit date" for you and will help you track how many cigarettes you smoke that day, as well as record the obstacles that keep you smoking and make it difficult to stop. Daily monitoring and gradual reduction of the number of cigarettes you smoke, based on eliminating the triggers, should help reduce your reliance on smoking to get through the day. As an added bonus, the app will show you how much money you've saved from not buying cigarettes!
"We have taken the science regarding smoking cessation strategies and created an app that allows you to customize a quit plan based on your personal smoking habits," said Jon Dalton, M.A., member of Covenant Health's smoking cessation task force and manager of Parkwest Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation. "Education is key to quitting, but it really has to fit in with somebody's lifestyle. Today people want information when they need it and on their own schedule. As health educators, we need to adapt and be more flexible in how we provide education for our patients and public."
The smoking cessation app was funded by a grant from the Will Rogers Institute (http://www.wrinstitute.org), a national nonprofit dedicated to pulmonary research and disorders. For more information about how to stop smoking and links to download the app, call Covenant Health at (865) 541-4500 or visit http://www.covenanthealth.com/stopsmoking.

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- /Entropia Universe/ - Entropia Universe AB, the largest Massively Multiplayer Online Real Cash Economy (or MMORCE) game, announced today that MindArk has released a brand new avatar system. This new system will bring Entropia Universe to the forefront of graphics technology in an MMO with highly detailed and fully customizable new avatars. The new avatars can be seen at http://www.tractionpr.com/EU.
The new avatars are significantly enhanced with over twice as many polygons as their predecessors for surprising fidelity. All character textures have been heightened as well, with faces becoming four times more detailed. Bilateral asymmetry is now a key factor in making distinctive creations as tattoos, scars and makeup no longer need to be even on both sides; and even hair has been improved so that it now moves and bounces naturally. Additionally all avatar animations have seen improvements so they move more fluidly, with clothes and armor redone to better fit the new models. This all allows for a much richer user experience as players' in-game representations will now be much more engaging and realistic.
To add to the gameplay the avatars not only look better, but they have been optimized for better performance on all machines as well. While overhauling the creation system to introduce the high-fidelity models the developers also took the time to work on the basic user interface. They made it far easier to customize a unique character so players can explore the world as anyone they wish. The new system also improves the handling of different races to better represent players and their backgrounds. The team also included pre-set appearances to allow for faster entry into the game if a player doesn't want to spend the time on their avatar. Upon release of the new avatar system all existing users will get a chance to re-customize their look for free.
Entropia Universe is the largest Massively Multiplayer Online Real Cash Economy (MMORCE) game in the world. Players have no monthly costs, but deposit and withdraw real funds for their adventures on any planet in the Entropia Universe. For more information on Entropia Universe or to download the free game please visit http://www.entropiauniverse.com.

Apple does something really great for everyone who wants an iPhone. Not only do they
release a new phone every year, giving the hungry tech lovers something new to lust after,
but they also drop the price of previous versions of iPhone. This means if an iPhone was a
little out of your price range, you might now be in luck. With iPhone 5 now available,
iPhone 4S is one of the models that's being reduced.
While iPhone 4S is now going to often be called the old iPhone, it still has some
great specs and features. The beautiful, sharp screen is still high end, and because it's
slightly smaller (3.5" versus 4") it can be easier to handle, especially with one hand.
The camera is 8MP, the same as iPhone 5, and it has access to all the apps in the App
Talking of features, there's something else that's important to know about the
differences between iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S. While iPhone 5 ships with new software, known
as iOS 6, you can still update an iPhone 4S for free. This gives you practically all the
features of iPhone. All you miss out on is the ability to take photos while recording
videos. iPhone 5 is more advanced, better looking, and runs apps and maps faster, but
iPhone 4S is very capable. When you remember that Google Maps is again available for
iPhones in the app store, there's really no reason for anyone not to update to iOS 6 and
get all the latest features.
So how much are we talking? If you fancy a 16GB iPhone 4S, you can pick one up for
free with a contract of just GBP29 a month from Carphone Warehouse
[http://www.carphonewarehouse.com/mobiles/iPhone-finder ], in store or online. That's a
whole GBP10 a month cheaper than iPhone 5, or GBP120 a year. The upgrade offer is the same
and includes minutes, texts and data, so you'll have everything you need. Now you can get
an iPhone, and it won't cost you the earth.

Mayor Ed Lee Announces Open Data Partnership With Yelp To Offer Restaurant Health Inspection Scores To Improve Public Health, Transparency
San Francisco Works with Yelp to Create New National Specification Standard for any City to Share Restaurant Inspection Scores on its Site
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Mayor Edwin M. Lee, Chairman of the US Conference of Mayors Technology and Innovation Task Force, and Yelp CEO and Co-founder Jeremy Stoppelman announced the initial integration of city-provided restaurant health score information on the site that connects people with great local businesses. San Francisco will lead the charge on this innovative effort to make valuable government data more easily accessible to the public; New York City restaurant grades will also be added as business attributes in the weeks ahead.
Working with the technology departments of San Francisco and New York, Yelp's engineering team designed the Local Inspector Value-entry Specification (LIVES) which enables local municipalities to accurately upload restaurant health inspection scores to Yelp's database. Consumers in SF and NYC will be the first to benefit from this partnership upon the full rollout in the weeks ahead. Philadelphia is also expected to participate along with other municipalities that adopt the new specification.
"This new partnership with Yelp to offer restaurant health inspection scores on its site is another significant step in the Open Data movement," said Mayor Lee. "By making often hard-to-find government information more widely available to innovative companies like Yelp, we can make government more transparent and improve public health outcomes for our residents through the power of technology."
"Increasing the transparency and accessibility of important public information is another example of how San Francisco, New York and other municipalities are leading the charge in bettering citizens lives by fostering innovation," said Jeremy Stoppelman, CEO and Co-founder of Yelp. "It's exciting to be a part of an important initiative to disseminate valuable health department information to the 84 million unique visitors that turn to Yelp each month on average."
According to a study in the Journal of Environmental Health(1) (March 2005), Los Angeles County's decision to require restaurants to display hygiene grade cards on their entrances led to a 13 percent decrease in hospitalizations due to food borne illness. The study also demonstrated that the mandatory public display of these health grades improved the overall average score of restaurants in Los Angeles by incentivizing improved best practices across the local industry. As a leading website and app for dining decisions, Yelp's open data initiative LIVES stands to empower consumers and improve the quality of life within the cities that participate in the program.
Details about and screenshots of the LIVES implementation can be found at yelp.com/healthscores.
Yelp (NYSE: YELP) connects people with great local businesses. Yelp was founded in San Francisco in July 2004. Since then, Yelp communities have taken root in major metros across the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, The Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, Australia, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Singapore and Poland. Yelp had a monthly average of 84 million unique visitors in Q3 2012(2). By the end of Q3 2012, Yelpers had written more than 33 million rich, local reviews, making Yelp the leading local guide for real word-of-mouth on everything from boutiques and mechanics to restaurants and dentists. Yelp's mobile application was used on 8.2 million unique mobile devices on a monthly average basis during Q3 2012.

enter:new media Launches "Branderati" Advocate Influencer Marketing Platform
NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Social Media Agency enter:new media (ENM) has announced the official launch of its advocate influencer marketing platform, Branderati. The new software and service solution has been in development and live testing since 2010, and is the first to focus exclusively on helping brands create and leverage powerful VIP networks of fans known as Advocate Influencers. Branderati provides a turnkey solution to recruiting, activating and amplifying robust Advocate Influencer Networks from brands' existing social communities.
ENM founder and CEO Mark Curtis, says, "Branderati represents a unique approach to influencer marketing. Social listening tools that simply identify digital influencers don't provide a viable answer to creating a scalable activation program. Conversely, networks of 3rd party influencers fail to take advantage of the substantial number of highly influential fans brands already have in their existing communities."
ENM defines a brand's "Advocate Influencers" as those that are passionate about the brand, actively willing to participate, aligned with the brands image, and are socially influential. Branderati's unique process of building bespoke brand networks focuses on screening for all four of these critical criteria.
According to Curtis, creating members-only sub-communities of VIP social fans is a logical next step in brand social media management. "As brands continue to focus on growing the scale of their social/digital communities, they are also building connections to larger numbers of untapped Advocate Influencers. Branderati allows brands the opportunity to activate these digitally powerful brand allies in line with top promotional priorities on an ongoing basis."
Branderati has already been proven across multiple media clients in helping solve the need to monetize social media by providing a way for advertisers to reach their most influential audience members. The platform has also formed the foundation of influencer initiatives for more than 50 brands across different industries, from beauty and luxury to fashion and retail, to consumer packaged goods and technology.
enter:new media (ENM) is a leading social media agency focused on growing, activating and optimizing social media communities for entertainment, fashion, and retail brands. Unlike other agencies offering social media services, ENM was designed from the ground up to deliver end-to-end social media capabilities encompassing Strategy, Outreach, Content, Analytics, Marketing, and Media.
