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 :: Posted On October 10, 2018
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.

The Biggest Marketing Trends For 2019
In an almost exclusively digital age, everyone is connected. It is easy to cross paths with potential clients, but keeping them interested is a different story. In order to draw consumers in and keep ahead of the competition, you will need to give the people what they want. While 2018 was a tumultuous time for privacy within social media and other digital fields, 2019 is a time for consumer empowerment.

The term empowerment might seem overwhelming at first, but it doesn't need to be. For marketing firms in Vancouver, empowerment begins with knowledge, accessibility and transparency.

Accessibility - Personalized marketing will never go out of style, so understanding your client is key. Identifying target audiences and demographics allow users to connect with your services and put a face to the consumer. In order to create a better customer service, marketing firms need to be reachable. Ease of use is and easy to understand terminology will go a long way in creating client-involvement.

Knowledge - Consumers are more educated than even, so content needs to be informed, concise and enjoyable to read. Readers know that they have options, so if your content does not provide what they need, they will move on. Simply piling keywords into paragraphs and headings is not enough to give digital platforms the upper hand. Search engines are designed to be digital Q&As. Without proving answers and solution-based content, there is no reason for consumers to spend time on your services, never mind making repeat visits. Creating critical and "meaty" content, will attract web traffic while drawing readers in.

Transparency - Transparency between marketing firms and clients creates trust - and there is nothing more important than trust! In a competitive environment, reputation is everything. By sharing steps and processes, firms demonstrate that they value the time and investments of their clients. Nobody wants to be left in the dark, particularly where their money is concerned.

Implementing these qualities into your daily customer service routine builds reputation and helps with client relations. Consumers want to be empowered, so it is important for marketing companies to give them what they want.
NAMBE 2019 in Ketchum, Idaho
The 35th North American Conference on Molecular Beam Epitaxy (NAMBE 2019) will be held in Ketchum, Idaho, on September 22-25, 2019. NAMBE is an international forum for Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) technology and MBE grown materials and devices. MBE is a ultra-high vacuum thin-film deposition technique. It enables the production of photonic devices, solar cells, and thermoelectrics.

Conference topics include MBE growth modifications, fundamentals of MBE growth, MBE technology, e.g. in-situ monitoring, and materials characterization.

Among the participants is k-Space Associates, a worldwide supplier of thin-film metrology tools, such as the k-Space Integrated Control for Epitaxy system (ICE), a modular in-situ metrology tool designed for MBE reactors.

Abstracts need to be submitted by April 19, 2019.
ThunderX3 UC5 HEX RGB Gaming Chair
The UC5 HEX is not only the very first RGB model by ThunderX3 but probably also the one that stands out most from their entire line of Gaming Chairs.
Nvidia RTX 2060 Founders Edition 6GB
Following on from the launch of the RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti in September, and then the RTX 2070 a month later, it's not exactly a surprise that the RTX 2060 is the next Turing-based graphics card to be released by Nvidia. Essentially a cut-down RTX 2070, based on the same TU106 GPU, this card does indeed have the necessary RT and Tensor cards to make use of RTX features like ray tracing and DLSS - contrary to some rumours, this is very much an RTX card, not a return to GTX nomenclature.
IRONCLAW RGB is quite light at just 105g thanks to its all-plastic construction and measures 130 x 80 x 45 (LWH); we found it to be very comfortable while using it with a palm grip, while the latest high-end sensor made in cooperation with PixArt should be enough for pro gamers as well. When running games such as CS: GO, StarCraft II, Vindictus and Quake Champions, the mouse did perform flawlessly and if the system does also include a latest-gen gaming monitor (or multiple) with high resolution up to 4K, the high DPI values PMW3391 supports are a welcome addition.
Thermaltake 32GB DDR4-3200MHz WaterRAM RGB
Thermaltake has entered the DDR4 memory market in typical Thermaltake style. There are two kits of DDR4-3200MHz in the shape of a dual module 16GB kit and a quad module 32GB kit. You won't be surprised to learn that WaterRAM comes with RGB lighting however the novel part is that these kits can be water cooled with the minimum of fuss. You have three distinct options when it comes to cooling; you can leave the modules bare, apart from their 2mm thick aluminium heat sinks that function through regular convection cooling. Alternatively you can top off the assembly with the water block with its copper base to increase the thermal mass and thus assist cooling.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition 6 GB
NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2060 doesn't seem cheap at $349, but this new card has enough steam to beat AMD's RX Vega lineup, at better pricing and with much better power/heat/noise. Actually the RTX 2060 obsoletes much of NVIDIA's GeForce 10 Pascal stack, too.
Patriot Viper RGB DDR4 3200 MHz Memory
As enthusiasts, there is a never-ending need to constantly upgrade our computers to keep up with the rapidly moving tech industry. However, 2018 was a rough year for hardware junkies to get their fix. In early 2018, there was an explosion in cryptocurrency mining that led to a massive shortage of graphics cards from both AMD and Nvidia.
NZXT H500i Case
$99 seems to be the sweet spot for PC cases. At this price you are high enough that you are getting a quality case that is well thought out and has a lot of features, but at the same time you may lack a few things present in higher priced cases. Today we are taking a look at NZXT's H500i, which is a very sleek mid tower that offers a tempered glass side panel, two RGB LED strips, support for ATX motherboards, and a built in RGB and fan controller. Is this the perfect case at that $99 price point? Read on as we find out.
Mad Catz R.A.T. 6+ Optical Gaming Mouse
R.A.T. 6 has been recently reincarnated into the R.A.T. 6+ and features a very similar chassis, but an upgraded optical sensor (Pixart PMW3360). The Thumb Barrel adds an extra analog control layer, while the back cover can be adjusted as necessary in order to permit different grip types. Let's not forget about the weight system (3x6G weights are pre-installed), that can be removed easily and the aluminum chassis that reinforces the build.
