ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/14 -- Liberator, Inc. (OTCQB: LUVU), the manufacturer of Liberator®, a leading brand in the sexual wellness category, has launched the Take Heart Project, a special campaign to benefit three selected nonprofit organizations. The Take Heart Project aims to share Liberator's passion for love by giving back to the community through organizations dedicated to improving the world.
For a limited time, all profits from the sales of Liberator's special edition Heart Wedges (http://www.liberator.com/take-heart-project.html) in exclusive colors will benefit one of three charitable organizations. Customers are able to choose which organization to support based on their chosen product color. Proceeds from the teal Heart Wedge will benefit the Sierra Club Foundation, the lime Heart Wedge benefits the Human Rights Campaign, and the Wounded Warrior Project benefits from a dark purple Heart Wedge.
The organizations were each selected carefully to tie into an element of Liberator's mission. The Sierra Club's environmental endeavors were an inspiration for Liberator's unique vacuum-compression packaging, which reduces environmental impact by significantly decreasing the shipping space and packaging materials needed for delivery.
With all products crafted exclusively in the USA, Liberator is also hugely supportive of US troops, offering a year-round 10% discount on all products for military personnel, and is eager to further the initiative by supporting the Wounded Warrior Project.
In addition, Liberator is proud to support the efforts of the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest organization dedicated to the rights of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities. Liberator's dedication to equality and sexual well-being will be further developed throughout the year as the company works to offer more same-sex products and resources.
"The Take Heart Project is an exciting new opportunity for us," said Liberator founder and CEO Louis Friedman. "We are very focused on providing tools and resources to improve people's lives, and we're passionate about supporting organizations that do the same."
Heart Wedges are a unique variation on Liberator's classic Wedge design, and are crafted in a romantic shape to blend in with couples' bedroom decor. Made in Atlanta with high-density foam, a lush velvet cover and a moisture-resistant liner, the Heart Wedge enhances a wide variety of sexual positions for couples, creating new angles for enhanced intimacy and increasing pleasure and performance.
"Our mission at Liberator is to share love, and these are all organizations that do the same," Friedman added. "The impact they have on the community is inspiring to everything we do in our work."
Liberator has been crafting erotic luxury products in its Atlanta headquarters since 2002. Their exclusively USA-made products transform ordinary bedrooms into supportive landscapes for intimacy by presenting angles, elevations, curves and motion that help people of all sizes find satisfying ways to connect with their partners.

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.

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.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
