LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - January 10, 2014) - VOYCE™, unveiled this week at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show and featured as one of the hottest new wearable tech health and wellness devices by top news outlets including "Today," CNN, the Wall Street Journal and USA Today, was named "Best of CES 2014" by PCWorld/TechHive and Yahoo! Tech.
"Having recently announced the launch of VOYCE at CES, we are thrilled to be named Best of CES 2014," said Jeff Noce, President of i4C Innovations, a subsidiary of Intersections Inc. "With VOYCE, we are taking wearable pet technology to the next level by combining cutting edge technology with exclusive expert content, empowering pet parents to become more informed about the overall health and well-being of their dog."
Developed in collaboration with bio-medical engineers, dog experts, and Cornell University (one of the nation's top veterinary institutions), VOYCE tracks key vital signs and wellness indicators while providing subscribers with exclusive content to help them understand their dogs like never before.
Worn comfortably around a dog's neck, VOYCE is a highly sophisticated, durable, and attractive health band that monitors key vital signs including heart and respiratory rates, along with other wellness indicators such as activity, rest, calories burned, and more. The data provides valuable insight into more than just health-related issues, helping owners and veterinarians recognize and understand trends in the dog's behavior, diet, exercise, and habits.
By incorporating exclusive articles written by some of the nation's leading dog experts and content partners, VOYCE matches the data with relevant information specific to your dog's needs. The VOYCE community includes respected and distinguished veterinarians, trainers, and pet authorities like Dr. Alexandra Horowitz, PhD, NY Times Best-Selling author of Inside of a Dog.
Through www.MyDogsVoyce.com, VOYCE subscribers can readily access their dog's personalized portfolio of data and information virtually anytime and anywhere through a desktop or mobile device. Additionally, they will have the ability to share their dog's information with veterinarians and pet service providers as well as across social networks. Subscribers will also receive tips, important reminders, and notifications covering various categories including nutrition, behavior, training, health and lifestyle.
"I am proud of this great accomplishment by Jeff and his team at our subsidiary i4C Innovations. Being named by multiple media outlets as "Best of CES 2014" is a testament to the innovative concept and design we developed with VOYCE. VOYCE truly is the new frontier in bridging the communication gap between dogs, their owners, and veterinarians and meets a need that this growing market has been missing," said Michael Stanfield, CEO, Intersections Inc.
Designed and assembled in the USA, VOYCE will be available for pre-order in the Spring of 2014 and available in the Summer of 2014. To learn more about VOYCE, visit www.MyDogsVoyce.com. Follow VOYCE on Twitter at @mydogsvoyce.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
