NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/14 -- FBC Holding, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: FBCD) ("FBC" or the "Company"), an international product development company primarily focused on license/creation management and product sales/distribution through DRTV, announced that the Company's partnership negotiations with toy designer and manufacturer, HandTrux, LLC., have ramped up as the two companies explore a market expansion of the popular and versatile toy line, HandTrux (http://www.handtruxtoys.com/).
In a previous release, Frank Russo, Chief Executive Officer of FBC Holding, Inc., noted that what originally caught his interest in HandTrux toys was an episode of The Weather Channel's Reality TV show "Prospectors." It was in this unsolicited televised display, the children's toy -- simple in design, use and function -- was actually used for mining. With FBC having launched an initiative to enter into the DRTV toy category, management focused on toys that were simple, novel and economical with proven sales history, prompting Mr. Russo to say, "We just had to jump at the opportunity to bring this product [HandTrux] to FBC Interactive's DRTV market."
Ongoing discussions between FBC Holding and HandTrux, LLC revealed certain opportunities to grow the business of both companies while increasing the marketability and overall sales of the HandTrux line of toys. With the success of HandTrux's Backhoe sales, along with its current purchase orders, HandTrux, LLC has already secured a number of manufacturing and distribution deals; lending to FBC's overall interest in the toy manufacturer. FBC is confident that DRTV's toy category can be leveraged to greatly enhance the overall sales and marketability of HandTrux to deliver additional income to FBC Interactive's current and continuously increasing revenue stream.
Executives have completed a series of discussions which FBC's management believes will likely result in a rapid and lucrative expansion to benefit both companies.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
