Kickstarter Campaign Introduces Sleek, Zero-Signal Loss Aluminum iPhone Bumper

New iPhone Bumper, by designed by m(TM), Features First Premium Aerospace Aluminum Design With Zero Signal Loss

MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 03/05/14 -- designed by m™, creator of the popular AL13 aluminum iPhone bumper, today launched its second Kickstarter campaign to support the release of its AL13 v2, a premium aerospace aluminum iPhone bumper with zero signal loss. The new AL13 v2 features a sleek, minimal design that offers protection without compromising the signal or aesthetics of the iPhone.

Following the success of the AL13 v1's launch, designed by m™ set out to make a few improvements based on customer feedback and achieve zero signal loss, a common disadvantage of all aluminum bumpers. The new AL13 v2, made from aerospace aluminum, weighs less than 13 grams, offering a barely-there, lightweight, yet durable design. The bumper also features an anti-scuff lining and protective film for the back. It will be available in eight colors with an anodized finish.

"We were blown away by the response from our first Kickstarter campaign, which introduced the AL13 to iPhone users and design fanatics around the world," said Lester Mapp, CEO and Founder of designed by m™. "Our supporters loved the look of AL13, but we believed we could make it even better and eliminate signal loss. We gathered feedback, organized a team to help, and tested multiple prototypes. Today we are proud to announce the AL13 v2 has achieved zero signal loss."

The first AL13 Kickstarter campaign, which completed in February 2013, funded in 48 days and resulted in more than 1,400 backers and $86,250 raised -- far above the pledged goal of $20,000. For AL13 v2, the company has set a Kickstarter goal of $25,000. The funding will allow designed by m™ to purchase the raw materials and fund the manufacturing process. With backers' support, the AL13 v2 will be brought from prototype to product and make signal loss with premium aluminum bumpers a thing of the past.

"The AL13 v2 offers the same minimal look our customers fell in love with, but has been redesigned to be tougher, fit better and have zero signal loss," Mapp said.

Backers worldwide can support the AL13 v2 project here.

One of the hottest areas in cloud right now is DRaaS and related offerings. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Dale Levesque, Disaster Recovery Product Manager with Windstream's Cloud and Data Center Marketing team, will discuss the benefits of the cloud model, which far outweigh the traditional approach, and how enterprises need to ensure that their needs are properly being met.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...

He will examine three use cases: IT operations, business intelligence, and security and compliance. This is a hands-on session that will require participants to bring their own laptops, and we will provide the rest.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

In a recent research, analyst firm IDC found that the average cost of a critical application failure is $500,000 to $1 million per hour and the average total cost of unplanned application downtime is $1.25 billion to $2.5 billion per year for Fortune 1000 companies. In addition to the findings on the cost of the downtime, the research also highlighted best practices for development, testing, application support, infrastructure, and operations teams.
