The exquisite crystal-and-gold decanter of Rare Cask 42,6 was officially unveiled today at the Dufry duty free shop in the airport's South Satellite Terminal.

Noted Mike Lembo, Dufry North America's Executive Vice President of Duty Free Operations: "A rare cask is a single, extremely rare barrel discovered among the hundreds of century-old tiercons (barrels) that will one day go to make Louis XIII. We are delighted to offer this distinguished product to our customers here in the US."

Only 738 decanters have been drawn from this rare cask, which contains 42,6% alcohol, a small but significant increase beyond the expected 40%. The cognac features aromas that are unique to this cask, including notes of plum and dates, mingling with flavors of gingerbread, prune stone and ginger and a final touch of tobacco leaf.

The numbered decanters, made of precious black Baccarat crystal, boast a number of refined details to appeal to the collector. The ring around the neck is enveloped in 22 carat rose gold, engraved on each side with finely worked fleur-de-lis motifs. It is engraved with the numeral that sets this rare cask apart from all others, sealed with a Remy plaque and presented in a forged-metal "strongbox." The package is priced at $24,000.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud.

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.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.
