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.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
