NYNE Supports Vision Zero With NYC Century Bike Tour Sponsorship

Transportation Alternatives' 25th Annual Tour to Take Place September 7

OXNARD, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- NYNE, an innovator of lifestyle inspired audio products, is proud to announce it is once again a sponsor of Transportation Alternatives' 25th Annual NYC Century Bike Tour. In an effort to support safer streets in New York City, NYNE is giving the first 10 tour participants to raise $1,250 for Vision Zero its Bluetooth bike speaker, the Cruiser. Vision Zero is a policy that aims to eliminate serious injuries and fatal traffic crashes through better enforcement, street design and education.

"We're thrilled that NYNE is supporting the NYC Century Bike Tour and this year's Ride for Vision Zero," said Samantha Dodds, director of corporate and individual giving at Transportation Alternatives. "The prospect of getting a Cruiser Bluetooth speaker will give riders an extra incentive as they raise funds for T.A.'s work to make New York City's streets safer for all users -- cyclists, pedestrians and drivers alike."

On September 7, more than 6,000 participants will ride 35, 55, 75 or 100 miles through New York City's neighborhoods. To illustrate bicyclists' right to the streets, there are no street closings and bicyclists ride with traffic and obey all traffic laws. The NYC Century Tour is an integral starting point for year-round bicycling and is the best way to experience the diversity and breadth of the city.

"Bike safety is a concept that resonates with all of us here at NYNE and we are proud to be a part of Transportation Alternatives' initiative to save lives on New York City streets," said Arman Arami, president of NYNE. "Our Cruiser Bluetooth speaker was developed specifically with bike safety in mind and we are happy to give them away to the top fundraising participants."

The NYNE Cruiser portable Bluetooth speaker allows bikers to listen to music without headphones so they are able to hear traffic around them and have a safer ride. It features Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC for quick and easy wireless pairing with a smartphone that riders can then keep tucked away in a pocket or backpack. With up to 10 hours of playtime, the Cruiser can play while you ride to work, at work, and during your ride home all on one charge. It even allows you to multitask and answer a phone call while riding with its built-in microphone. Additionally, the Cruiser features a built-in powerbank for charging your mobile device when you're low on battery.

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...
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 to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.
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...

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.
