Speck Launches New Line of Protective and Stylish CandyShell Cases for iPad mini

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Speck released two new lines of iPad mini cases based on its often-imitated, but never copied, CandyShell. The new CandyShell and CandyShell Grip for iPad mini both sport Speck's patented dual-layer design and come in an array of on-trend colors for 2013.

The CandyShell for iPad mini has a hard outer shell to guard against impact and a glossy finish for a sleek, stylish look. The exterior is complemented by a soft, rubbery interior that absorbs shock from occasional bumps and drops. Also built in is a raised bezel to protect the screen, and rubberized covers to shield buttons.

The gamer-friendly CandyShell Grip was originally designed for the iPod touch. When Speck brought it to the iPhone, it quickly became a top seller, and now, for the first time, it is available for the iPad mini. It offers the same dual-layer protection of the CandyShell, plus interwoven plastic and rubber grips that make it easy to hold, and add structure and style.

"The CandyShell design offers both style and protection, which make sense for the smaller, more portable iPad mini," said Bryan Hynecek, Vice President of Design, Speck. "We've also seen a lot of people on the go with the iPad mini, so we felt an easy-to-hold case like CandyShell Grip was a good fit for the way the device is being used."

Also new at CES is Speck's SmartShell for iPad mini. It's the perfect companion for the Apple Smart Cover, adding protection to the back of your iPad mini for full-on coverage. It also secures the Smart Cover in place when open, allowing your iPad mini to lay flat from edge to spine.

Speck is showing off their cases for iPad, iPhone and an array of top smartphones and tablets at CES 2013 in the Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall 4, booth #36218. For credentialed media, Speck is hosting a happy hour in their VIP lounge every day between 1:00PM and 2:00PM.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
