VALENCIA, Calif., March 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Remington® introduces a comprehensive lineup in its new "Lifestyle Series™" with iCup™ -- the world's first single-serve coffee brewing system to use rotational SteamBrew™ technology. Featuring the iCarafe™, a stainless steel (non-plastic) thermal carafe, the iCup system will brew up to 28 ounces of coffee into iCarafe with a larger single-serve K-type cup. The new Remington Lifestyle Series featuring iCup and the iCarafe is debuting at the International Home+Housewares Show (IHHS) in Chicago, March 15-18, 2014 and will be showcased in demonstrations.
Bruce Burrows, Remington CEO, explains, "Our iCup Lifestyle Series and the iCarafe is breakthrough technology for the single-serve brewer industry, providing a superior tasting cup of coffee from your favorite Keurig® K-Cup® or K-type equivalent."
iCup uses patent pending rotational SteamBrew technology to steam and stir the coffee grounds in all Keurig and K-Type compatible cups. This revolutionary rotational brewing technology is similar to that of iCoffee®, featured on the cover of Consumer Reports' 2014 "Hot List", which creates a brewing environment that extracts rich, smooth flavors without the bitter-acidic aftertaste often associated with drip and single-serve coffee brewers.
"We have changed the game by creating a system that accepts all Keurig K-Cups, including the new 2.0 interactive K-Cups, as well as any K-type equivalent. Our iCoffee lovers requested that we put the 'impossibly smooth' taste that they experience with iCoffee in a single-serve machine, and we are thrilled to be able to do that with iCup."
Remington launched iCoffee in 2013. iCoffee was the first-ever coffee brewer to utilize rotational steam jets inside the brew basket to crack open the grounds, unlocking all the rich coffee flavors while eliminating any bitter or acidic aftertaste.
iCup uses a patent pending rotational jet inside the K-Cup® or K-type cup that steams and stirs the coffee at the optimum brewing temperature to release maximum flavor.
The iCup brewer is also the first to use a patent pending Dial-a-Brew™ cup size selector that provides the user with any brew strength between 6 and 28 ounces of beverage size depending on the Lifestyle Series model.
The iCup brewer will be produced in six models and comes loaded with different features to accommodate every coffee lover's lifestyle. Some models will include a built-in K-cup® storage space within the brewer that conveniently holds eight coffee pods.
Burrows added that Keurig has announced a 2.0 interactive K-Cup reader system that will both eliminate choice and will ultimately be more expensive by requiring consumers to use only Keurig-licensed interactive K-cups.
"With iCup, coffee lovers will experience a dramatically better tasting coffee and the ability to use their favorite Keurig K-Cup or K-type equivalent from makers including Kraft (Maxwell House, Gevalia), Mother Parkers (Real Cup), Rogers Family Coffee, Sturm Foods, Kroger and Safeway, just to name a few. By delivering this game-changing brewer technology for a cost that is substantially less than the competition, we are offering coffee lovers – and our retail partners – value and freedom of choice while supplying a 28-ounce iCarafe full of delicious coffee," Burrows added.
iCup will be available at retail by third quarter, 2014. For more information about the company, please visit www.icoffee.com.

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessi...

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
