CLUJ-NAPOCA, Romania, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For all of us busy-minded people that sometimes (several times... a day) lose sight of our important stuff, here's the newest, technology-improved gadget for lost items: Tintag. The best thing about it? You simply recharge it with its Home Base companion and it's ready to go for another 4 months. No need to replace its batteries or buy new devices when batteries run out, like other tracking devices (Tile or TrackR bravo) oblige.
The basic story is somehow the same: Tintag helps you locate at all times any object you've lost, big or small, near or far. The app on your phone allows you to easily determine the whereabouts of any items that have a Tintag attached, it works on iPhone AND Android phones.
BUT beyond the basic story, Tintag solves a few important problems that the others have missed, at least until now.
The first rechargeable item tracking device
Battery use was until now perhaps the biggest complaint of item trackers users. Tile makes you buy another device, TrackR bravo or Duet makes you replace batteries.
"Making it work was quite a technical challenge since there were several parts we had to build ourselves from scratch. But we made it and Tintag never leaves you dry. It recharges wirelessly and after 6 hours it's ready to go for up to 4 months," says Andrei Vig, Tintag's Co-Founder.
How do I find my stuff?
Unlike other tracking devices, Tintag offers two ways to locate your items: with the beep of the buzzer or quietly with a flicker of lights. Just check the app on you phone and activate one or another. Neither rings a bell? Check on your phone the history of locations where your item was last seen and you can easily remember where you've left it.
One can connect the same Tintag to multiple phones
If for instance, both you and your spouse want to simultaneously locate your kid or your dog you would have a hard time using traditional item trackers that won't be able to connect to more than one phone. Meanwhile, one can connect the same Tintag to multiple phones even if we're talking connecting the same tracker to an iPhone and an Android phone.
Item out of sight? Find it through a network of hotspots and Lost & Found Community.
The Home Base charger can also work as a hotspot that scans 24x7 for Tintag devices, so with the help of the network of hotspots you can track down your lost items even from afar. And when someone finds your lost item and enters your Tintag's unique id on found.tint.ag, a notification will be immediately sent to you, with the location of your item.

Shipping prototypes this November
Since the backers of earlier campaigned item trackers had to wait even 12 months to get their hands on their devices, Tintag's plan is to ship the first 500 functional prototypes as soon as November 2014. "Although we're talking prototypes and not the fully functional product (that will come in April 2015) our users will quickly get a taste of Tintag," says Alex Chis, Co-Founder.
Aggressive promotional offers
To strengthen their competitive edge its Co-Founders will price one Tintag plus its home base charger at $19 during the crowdfunding campaign about to start on the 8th of September. People who sign up to their email list until then will receive an extra Tintag for free during the campaign.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

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...

DevOps is gaining traction in the federal government – and for good reasons. Heightened user expectations are pushing IT organizations to accelerate application development and support more innovation. At the same time, budgetary constraints require that agencies find ways to decrease the cost of developing, maintaining, and running applications. IT now faces a daunting task: do more and react faster than ever before – all with fewer resources.

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
