Lynktec Bolt Smart Car Mount and Qi Wireless Charger
Wireless charging has been around for quite a while, but it hasn't had much market penetration. This is starting to change as more and more mobile devices offer it, and most support some version of the Qi standard. While there are numerous options out there for home chargers, the field for automobile chargers has been a bit more limited. Recently I received a press release for a new charger by Lynktec called the Bolt Smart Car Mount & Qi Wireless Charger.

Difference Between Zigbee and Z-Wave
With wireless home security systems, you'll be able to come across the technologies or home automation standards known as Z-Wave and Zigbee. Just what are Z-Wave and Zigbee and how are they similar and different from one another? Both Z-Wave and Zibgee are known as mesh networks which mean that every node integrated in that system will act as a wireless source of data and as a repeater as well.

Trends in Web Design 2019
Web design and marketing is one of the fastest growing industries out there. There are plenty of employment opportunities within this field, but that also means that there is plenty of competition. In order to stay ahead of competing companies, it is necessary to keep ahead of industry trends. Instead of implementing fad graphics or topical jokes, it is important to create lasting updates and beneficial changes to your website. Tyler at Quake Media web development in Vancouver says, "Inclusion is key in 2019. Consumers are looking for answers and clients want to be heard; incorporating the needs of both will make for a successful campaign every time."

Some of the most important design trends 2019 aren't trends at all, but are new ways to communicate information to prospective or repeat clients. Media integration, for example, is important now but it will be no less important in the years to come. Mobile device usage is on the rise and shows no signs of slowing down. The majority of site research begins on a smartphone or other mobile device. Having a webpage that is not mobile friendly, users are most likely to find another avenue that suits their needs.

Today's web user is more savvy and educated than ever. Consumers know how things work and what they should be expecting, but they are also inundated with dozens of sites every day. After a while, these pages begin to blend together. Customized elements can set sites apart from the competition while giving visitors a more in-depth impression of your brand. Pre-made templates might make site creation easier but they don't do anything to set your site apart.

While custom graphics help give a distinct voice, it is important not to overdo it! Too many graphics or text boxes can lead to a cluttered landing or service page. Multiple images can make it difficult to focus and can steal attention from necessary information or features. With trends in minimalism on the rise, it is no wonder that they have translated to our online lives. Cutting out clutter makes your site more efficient, and allows users to find information in a quick and hassle-free way.
