OtterBox, the No. 1 most-trusted brand for smartphone protection, gives a sneak peek of upcoming innovations at Pepcom! Digital Experience @ CES 2015. At this show before the show, OtterBox will go beyond protection, highlighting the latest technology and accessories for smartphones and tablets.1
OtterBox Resurgence Power Case for iPhone 6 is newly designed and allows users to unplug and go further with two-times the battery life of the device and military-grade drop protection.
“Resurgence is one of the most innovative product lines we’ve ever released,” said President and CEO Pete Lindgren. “At CES, we’ll preview the year ahead with fresh designs that incorporate new technology, all in line with our legacy of engineered confidence and trusted protection.”
Resurgence boasts 2,600 milliamp hours (mAh) of battery power, providing more than two-times the battery life of the iPhone 6. The two-piece snap design simplifies case assembly and removal. Resurgence is made up of a specially formulated polycarbonate to improve impact resistance and absorb energy from drops and bumps. The case is rigorously tested to meet MIL STD 810G-516.6, a third-party test that drops the case on all faces, edges and corners from four feet.2 The new design incorporates compact advanced circuitry, resulting in a smaller profile.
The iPhone 6 battery case utilizes auto-stop technology, which conveniently shuts off the case when the phone has reached full charge, saving extra battery for later. Resurgence supports both wired and wireless syncing without removing the case and includes a headphone jack extender.

SENSORS – Those devices are equipped with sensors to gather data. IBM predicts that there will be a trillion sensors by 2015.
CLOUD COMPUTING – That data lives online where is can be accessed instantly. Public web services such as Dropbox are expected to be a $73 billion market by 2015.
BIG DATA – Networks of computers can now process those trillions of bits of information coming from all those sensors in mere seconds.
With a solid one-third of the Earth’s population connected to the Internet, the speed and quality of one’s Internet connection is more important than ever. Everyone has dealt with the annoyance of a painfully slow Internet connection, and when you’re trying to get something done, slow Internet can feel like more than just a minor setback. While in reality, slow Internet isn’t the worst thing in the world, it’s interesting to take note that, for some places in the world, the Internet does move markedly faster than in others. In some countries, the Internet speeds make even downloading HD movies quick and painless, while in others you may find yourself waiting for days just to fully download your favorite Adele song. Populous nations, like China and India, tend to have slower connection speeds, while less densely populated countries like Finland tout some of the best Internet connections on the planet. In a time when more and more people are considering high-speed Internet a necessity rather than a luxury, it’s interesting to see which nations are truly delivering on that principle. The following infographic takes a look at some of the world’s Internet speeds: Who’s fast, who’s slow, who does it cheapest and who does it overall best.
In my family, I’m the architect, information technology guru and resident business analyst. (Or at least I like to think I’m one) I recently re-negotiated the agreements for Verizon traditional phone, Cablevision’s Optimum Online internet and Direct TV services. While these entertainment services include all the necessary evils – none are offering the bandwidth connection speed current provided in rural Kansas City, Kansas. A very special project that happened in the Google “Fiberhood” in Kansas City.
In 2010, Google announced a nationwide “Google Fiber” initiative – more than 1,100 cities applied – but Kansas City won out. The ultra-high-speed fiber-to-the-home internet service and residents were able to test and see if the service lived up to its hype. The 1-gigabit-per-second fiber optic Internet service will cost customers $70 per month. The fast speeds are available for both uploads and downloads and come with 1 terabyte of “Google drive” data storage and network to deliver the service. If customers want to opt into Fiber TV service, the total comes out to $120 monthly and much more cost effective than Google’s broadband competitors.
The internet search giant is disrupting the cable business (Comcast, Time Warner, Cablevision) and effectively put them all ON NOTICE. Its new infrastructure and installing cable/data network will force Google Fiber to operate a loss. Since Google is flush with cash – it won’t blink that the initial net negative rollout. It’s less about a long term revenue opportunity, but pushing current Internet providers to increase speeds and overall innovation.
I expect a pretty lengthy wait for my neighborhood to become a Google Fiberhood. Here’s the link to see if /when your neighborhood will be Google Fiberhood.
- Internet (1Gbs speed & 1Tbs storage) $70 (only)
- Internet & phone $120 (combo)
- Internet, Phone & TV $TBD (bundle)

Mistake 2: Not having any recommendations.
Mistake 3: Not adding live links to your work history.
Here are a few tips you can use to minimize your Cyber Monday risk:
1. Patch your systems. Most exploits and malware attacks target known vulnerabilities for which patches have already been developed. Make sure your operating system, applications, and any network hardware are current with the latest patches and updates and you will thwart most attacks.
2. Update your anti-malware. Make sure your antivirus or anti-malware security software is up to date with the most current signatures. Attackers often come armed with new attacks and zero day exploits, but many will also use viruses, Trojans, and bots that your anti-malware software should be able to detect and block.
3. Educate your users. This is the most important step. The end-user is always the weakest link in the security chain, and an uninformed user can easily subvert even the best security tools and techniques. Make sure your users are aware of the increased risk, and that they’re especially observant for deals that seem too good to be true. Make sure you know that Cyber Monday is not an excuse to circumvent security policy, or forget basic security principles.
Make sure you’re prepared!!
