Playbutton Corporation, an audio wearables company that connects brands with their customers through their product, the Playbutton, and Taida Company LLC, an audio processing and wearables company, today announced that they have merged to form Comhear, Inc.

Taida produces revolutionary eco-friendly memory bio-foam eartips for in-ear headsets called EarPuffs®, an over-the-ear bio-foam headset earpad called EarTOP™, and audio enhancement and immersion software called KAP (Kinetic Audio Processing). Playbutton is an audio wearables company that creates the Playbutton product, a patent-protected, fully customizable music player in a branded, wearable button. The Playbutton is the first product to offer the combination of a digital audio player combined with HD Audio music in one fashionable and wearable button.

“We are pleased to be putting together a great combination of talent, services and products for the digital audio wearables space,” said Randy Granovetter, founder and CEO of Taida, now CEO of Comhear. “This winning combination will provide services and products that feel good and sound great.”

According to IMS Research, the wearables market is poised to grow from 14 million devices shipped in 2011 to as many as 171 million units shipped by 2016. In a more recent estimate, ABI Research pegs the wearables market at 485 million annual device shipments by 2018.

“We see this symbiotic merger to be of great value to our business, clients and shareholders alike,” said Adam Tichauer, President of Playbutton. “We are extremely excited for the future of our new company and are working to quickly integrate our teams.”

Comhear will keep and expand its existing brands, services and products, including Playbutton, EarPuff and KAP.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
