Research and Markets: Mobile Operators Seeking the Killer 3G Applications are Facing a Daunting Challenge










Dublin, (PRWEB) June 1, 2005

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18337) has announced the addition of 3G User Demand Analysis for 3G Content and Applications in Asia to their offering.

This report provides a unique look into the needs and wants of Asian consumers for 3G mobile applications. It researches consumer opinion in China, Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia for 3G services and applications. With 3G technology, the paradigm shift from voice to content becomes the primary business model for operators and content providers. In Asia, a considerable number of service providers are rolling out or planning for 3G services. In Singapore, M1, Singtel, and Starhub are offering 3G mobile services. In Hong Kong, Hutchison’s 3 was the early 3G provider. In Malaysia, Maxis is aggressively readying its 3G service and Celcom launched in May 2005. In China, 3G trails continue and continue, with probable commercial launches in 2006.

Between the 3G license fees and the CAPEX spending on 3G infrastructure, significant sums have been deployed…but the offerings provided on these networks still are not all that appealing to the consumer.

The marketing and advertising campaigns are focusing on the 3G benefits of video conferencing, video clips, and music downloads. But is this really what consumers want? Or is it simply only what can be provided just now?

This report provides a recently completed region’s first in-depth user analysis on 3G applications and provides a timely perspective on what the mobile consumer wants and needs in a 3G service.

The research report provides an understanding of Asian mobile consumers needs and wants – which will allow the service provider to create a wireless application strategy that will generate appropriate revenues and consumer loyalty.

Countries Covered – Interviews and focus groups were conducted in the markets of China, Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia.

The Deals are Heating Up with the Days as Kia Continues to Roll Out Daily Value Item Deals













Sydney, NSW (Vocus/PRWEB) November 29, 2010

Summer’s here and the time is right for the daily value items offered by KIA at http://www.getmorevalue.com.au through December 10 while stocks last. It’s all part of the celebration marking the debut of KIA’s first-ever hatchback car, the All New KIA Cerato Hatch.

This exciting new car is all about safety, style and technology. With European styling, a muscular 2.4L engine, rugged suspension and an eye-opening range of exciting extras, the All New KIA Cerato Hatch is a great value.

To drive that point home, daily value items are posted every day to getmorevalue.com.au. KIA Value Hunters have been working the streets to identify goods and services themed to tie in with the car. Clicking through to each day’s deal takes consumers to third-party partner websites. Click and save: it’s that easy.

How Big is Big?

The roster of daily value items is as impressive as the All New KIA Cerato Hatch itself. Smart consumers have used getmorevalue.com.au as a gateway to value from such quality vendors as The Laptop Factory, digiDIRECT, Readyrooms.com and Baby Village. Other prominent partners in this exciting promotion include Logitech, Dell, Adrenalin, Hampers Only, Barbecues Galore and Fitness First.

Last week alone saw a fresh cavalcade of daily value items. On Tuesday, The Laptop Factory announced that with the purchase of Acer’s 5740G laptop for $ 899—a savings of $ 280—consumers receive Trend Micro Antivirus 2011, a digital USB TV tuner, a USB mouse and a carry bag—absolutely free.

Wednesday’s child was suddenly a lot safer, as Baby Village offered a free Safe-n-Sound car organizer, valued at $ 39.95, with the purchase of any Safe-n-Sound convertible car seat or convertible booster seat.

On Thursday, travelers gave thanksgiving as ReadyRooms.com announced new destinations have been added to their special promotion offering bonus night offers for selected international hot spots.

Friday marked the return of Adrenalin.com.au to the march of daily value deals, with one free hot lap with the purchase of two. And today’s new deal is from Dell, offering 50% off a Dell colour cartridge with purchase of any Dell printer over $ 50.

Some of these deals have expiry dates and many are limited to available stock, so hurry to getmorevalue.com.au for the full array of value added items offered to raise awareness of Kia’s new hatchback car.

KIA is Conscious of the Community

KIA is mindful of its role in the community and takes this commitment seriously. For that reason, this innovative promotion will conclude with an exciting charity event: on December 10, eBay will host an online charity auction in which 29 items will be up for 24 hours. To learn more, visit getmorevalue.com.au, sign up for the alert and check back daily as the items are revealed.

All proceeds from this auction will be donated directly to the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute (VCCRI). Based in Sydney and named for the pioneering cardiothoracic surgeon and humanitarian, the VCCRI is a biomedical research facility committed to excellence in research into heart disease and cardiovascular biology, cardiovascular research training and the facilitation of rapid application of research discoveries to patient care.

The KIA Quality Commitment

The All New KIA Cerato Hatch is the latest in a hot line of quality cars that has kept KIA at the forefront of quality in the global automotive industry for more than 40 years. They’ve done this by consistently offering value for money, a philosophy embodied by the style, safety and innovative extras found in this and all their cars, available now at the nearest KIA showroom.

On the verge of a new century, a new child of rock is born – Carbon 9










(PRWEB) January 6, 2000

Dynamic, memorable, a label-ready package: Music Connection.com

Polished, extremely skilled songwriters – Listen.com

On the verge of a new century, a new child of rock is born – Carbon 9

December 31 – Los Angeles: One of the bright surprises in the music world during 1999 is an independent band from Los Angeles whose music is as far ahead of its time as Def Leppard’s “Pyromania” was in 1982.

Carbon 9′s debut CD “systemaddict” is the current talk of the music scene in L.A., with a sound that reaches far into the future. “systemaddict” combines the best of music’s genres of the late 20th century and combines it with “Matrix-esque” programming, samples and professional musicianship that is unworthy of comparisons to the popular music of the day.

Take bits of the “Mindcrime”-era Queensryche, add influences like King’s X, Marilyn Manson, Orgy, European techno-rock and a new outlook of the world we live in, and you’ll start to form a picture of Carbon 9. This picture would not be complete without a look at the songwriting that makes Carbon 9 truly unique.

“The lyrical content of ‘systemaddict’ is an expression of the global changes taking place in today’s technologically-dependent society. Within the songs, lie the information of how to break the linear mode of thinking we have forced upon ourselves and release the negative energies that keep us addicted to the system,” says lead vocalist Stacey Quinealty.

The four-piece band, made up of performers from Illinois, Louisiana and New York, was formed from a working relationship at Universal Studios – Hollywood. Stacey Quinealty (Lead Vocals, Programming), Richard Haitz (Guitars, Vocals), Curtis Porche (Bass, Backing Vocals) and Jaysen Hawks (Drums, Samples & Backing Vocals), joined forces to change the world. Almost immediately, the band opened the creative floodgates, allowing each member’s varied influences to unite together in one voice, creating a highly original sound.

“From the very beginning, there was something special – That certain magic that so rarely happens between four musicians,” explains drummer Jaysen Hawks.

Within six months, Carbon 9 had written, self-recorded and self-produced their full-length debut CD. The musical intricacies, layers and production lead the listener down an enlightening path of their view of today’s society and pose the musical question, “What have we become?”

“systemaddict,” ironically, could not be more outside the “system”, from recording process on down to the image and music – The band has created something truly different. The CD shows an imaginative, new style of music with immense imagery, best highlighted in their driving, theatrical stage show.

Listen.com says, Carbon 9 is: “A polished Industrial Metal band that possesses a strong sense of melody and whose music is arranged and written with an interesting balance of ferocity and professionalism. They are extremely skilled songwriters, as numbers like “Darkest Places” prove.”

Music Connection says: “Laying techno and industrial elements on an accessible hard-driving rock foundation, local quartet Carbon 9 offer a thirteen-song CD of angsty-yet-melodic material that would please fans of Marilyn Manson and Orgy – especially the dynamic, memorable ‘Darkest Places’ and ‘Would You.’ This band seems to be a label ready-package. Carbon 9 are a band well worth a call.”

“Ah Leh Lah” opens the disc with a unique blend of powerful vocals, roaring guitars, driving grooves and cutting-edge samples that immediately draw the listener into the industrial mayhem of Carbon 9.

The dynamic and memorable “Darkest Places” highlights the CD and would make a great track for television’s “Angel” or “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

“Digi Li” features Native American-style backbeats and chants in a song that is ready for airplay on any cutting-edge radio station of the new millenium.

On the verge of a new century, a new child of rock is born. A hybrid potion of techno, industrial and alternative rock, elevated to the ultimate climactic fantasy… Carbon 9.

You can find out more about Carbon 9 at their website, http://www.carbon9.com. Here you can download MP3 or RealAudio files, look up show dates, purchase a cd, read recent media reviews and contact the band directly.

Honeywell Unveils First Home Weather Product with NOAA Emergency Alert










Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 7, 2006

Hideki Electronics, Inc. today announced the introduction of the first home weather station to add NOAA Emergency Alert Systems to complete home and area environmental condition monitoring.

The new Honeywell Emergency Alert Home Weather Station (TN924W, MSRP $ 349.99) is one of several new Honeywell branded products which will be unveiled by Hideki Electronics, the U.S. marketer of the Honeywell brand of weather products in North America.

For the first public appearance of the new Honeywell products, Hideki secured an ideal position at The 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show, which is held in Las Vegas, January 8-11. The Hideki Electronic exhibit is part of the Hong Kong pavilion in Booth #57035 at The Las Vegas Hilton. There, the company will demonstrate the full line of products, including its DigiView timing products as well as its Honeywell weather stations.

The new Honewyell atomic time with dual projection forecast in number and graphics (PCR426, MSRP $ 99) imbeds its technology in a flat touchkey pad and LCD display as well as a new weather graphic image that will display temperature graphic from the wireless indoor/outdoor long range sensor. The forecast sensor will relay information for the projection display for one of seven graphics along with the number temperature. The graphics include images for Sunny, Partly Cloudy, Cloudy, Light Rain, Heavy Rain, Snow and Unstable Weather.

Conditions are ideal at Hideki as the company readies its new Honeywell branded weather products that measures any condition from Mother Nature, including national weather broadcasts.

Jim Boyle, president of Hideki Electronics, said, “We are elated to introduce our new Honeywell branded products at the Consumer Electronics Show. Our new Honeywell complete weather station monitors every practical environmental condition so that every member of the household can make informed choices about activities, comfort, safety and appropriate attire for the day.”

The new product (Model TE924, MRSP $ 349.99), marketed by Hideki under the Honeywell brand name, is the world’s most feature-rich home weather station to date. While the product offers rain, wind, forecasting, atomic time, and up to eight wireless indoor and outdoor sensors that have a range up to 300 feet, the NOAA with S.A.M.E. is the only complete Weather Station available with this feature.

According to Boyle, adding NOAA was a top priority of Hideki. “Hideki and Honeywell want everyone to know that we are a valuable source of information that help people better manage their busy lives.”

NOAA Weather Radio continuously broadcasts National Weather Service forecasts, warnings and other crucial weather information. The radios can be programmed to receive information specific to a certain area, using the Specific Area Message Encoder (SAME) feature, and can sound an alarm to alert users of approaching dangerous weather, natural and man-made hazards. It also is the primary trigger for activating America’s Emergency Alert System on commercial radio and television stations. As a single source for comprehensive weather and emergency information, warnings are broadcast for both natural (such as tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes, and volcanoes, etc.) and man-made (such as Amber Alerts (missing children), chemical and biological releases, and terrorist attacks, etc.) events as necessary.

When centrally located in the home, the large high-resolution backlit LCD screen of the Honeywell Home Weather Station accommodates easy examination of all weather conditions in addition to many other informative readings. The product stores over 200 weather records taken from its multiple sensors and through the USB cable (included) can be uploaded to any PC for charting. In addition, the product is equipped with atomic radio reception to automatically adjust the exact time, multiple wake up and ice warning alarms, snooze function, and choices of clock and calendar templates. The moon phase along with sunrise and sunset times are also constantly displayed. All of the information collected by the Honeywell weather station is presented in a choice of six different languages (English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Dutch) and icons indicate seven different weather conditions such as Sunny, Partly Cloudy, Cloudy, Light Rain, Heavy Rain, Snow and Unstable Weather.

Other sensors of the Honeywell Weather Station transmit indoor and outdoor temperature, wind speed and direction, rain fall amounts, humidity levels, and atmospheric pressure trends. The thermo-hygrometers, anemometer (wind meter), and rain collector each has a range over 300 feet to wirelessly transmit sensitive environmental data to the main unit.

A maximum of five separate channels of temperature and humidity readings can be monitored too. “Temperature can be monitored upstairs and downstairs, inside and/or outside, in a baby nursery, wine cellar, in-law apartment, attic, garage… anywhere,” Boyle added.

The Honeywell Complete Weather Station can also be personalized for individual weather preferences and guides. Comfort level indicators are input to personal specifications and are constantly analyzed for current environmental conditions and weather standards. There are alerts for humidity levels, freezing, ice, wet and dry conditions, and optimal circumstances. A daily rainfall or wind alarm can sound if rainfall exceeds a pre-specified amount or wind speed rises above safety levels. Each of the features also keeps an internal memory of daily, weekly, and monthly readings for quick comparisons that allow accurate reporting of any extreme activity.

Other new products in the Honeywell Weather products line include three varieties of long range time and temperature products distance time and temperature

Ben Sidran Releases ‘Nick’s Bump’ on New Nardis Music Label
Get Bumped with Cocktail Recipe on Enhanced CD Digi-Pak
‘Classic Cool’ Compilation CD Also Released This Month










(PRWEB) February 18, 2004

Ben Sidran, the legendary jazz keyboardist and songwriter, will release an all-new recording of classically cool jazz tunes with “Nick’s Bump.” This second major release from the new Nardis Music label debuts on February 17, at a suggested retail price of $ 12.95. Also on February 17, Nardis Music will release “Classic Cool,” the second Nardis Music compilation CD featuring new and classic music from Gege Telesforo, Georgie Fame, Ben Sidran, and several other artists. Suggested retail price for “Classic Cool” is $ 9.95. Both will be distributed throughout North America by Liquid 8 Records and Navarre Entertainment.

“Nick’s Bump” features an extra treat – a smooth digi-pak that includes a video extra featuring bartender Ethan concocting the mix of espresso, Stolichnaya Vanilla, Godiva chocolate liquer, Bailey’s Irish Cream, and three dark-roasted coffee beans – one each for health, wealth and happiness. This fun-filled extra feature is guaranteed to help listeners “get bumped” as they listen to the music.

In the classic tradition of the fifties and sixties, when jazz groups like Benny Golson’s Jazztet and Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers would stay on the road perfecting their groove before recording their music, the Nick’s Bump band road-tested this music through two years of touring in Europe, Japan and the United States.

The songs, too, come from the halcyon days of groove jazz — Lee Morgan’s “Zambia”, Eddie Harris’ “Mean Greens” and Sonny Clark’s “Blue Minor” to mention a few — and are brought up to date through the production and recording technology of Hector Coulon, the discovery of producers Ben and Leo Sidran. “Coulon understands the past and is hands on with the future,” says Sidran, commenting on Coulon’s drum centric mixes and his skillful blending of the wisdom of Art Blakey and Dizzy Gillespie, captured via audio excerpts from Sidran’s own enormous stockpile of jazz interviews.

Nick’s Bump finds Ben Sidran returning to the Wurlitzer electric piano and Hammond B-3 organ, instruments he helped popularize during the early seventies with his recordings for the Blue Thumb and Arista labels, classic sides that were heard on jazz and rock stations across the country. Also featured in the band are saxophonist Bob Rockwell, 2003 recipient of Denmark’s coveted Ben Webster award, bassist Billy Peterson, drummer Leo Sidran, and guitarist Louka Patenaude.

“The feeling we captured in two intense days of recording is exactly what we were after,” says the elder Sidran. “If there is a lesson in this experience — and why not? — it is that, in the words of Art Blakey, the purpose of this music is to ‘wash away the dust of everyday life.’

Everywhere we play, people love to enjoy themselves and we love to make them happy. Finally, we put it on record.” Nick’s Bump may just be the frothy anecdote to these nerve-wracked times.

Ben Sidran’s career spans the spectrum of jazz, and he has worked with some of the world’s greatest artists, including Van Morrison, Rickie Lee Jones, Carole King and Steve Miller (co-creating the hit “Space Cowboy” in the 1970s). He was the composer and music producer for the acclaimed documentary Hoop Dreams and served as music producer for Diana Ross’ The Lady Sings Jazz & Blues, among many other film, television and radio credentials. Sidran runs his own company, Go Jazz Records, and is an artist in residence at his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In addition, Sidran is on the Board of Governors for the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, the agency which administers the Grammy™ Awards. The memoir Ben Sidran:A Life in the Music was just published this year, and he was featured twice on National Public Radio when he released a Parents’ Choice award-winning children’s album, El Elefante, on Liquid 8 Records’ Baby Music Boom label in 2003.

Nardis Music is the new jazz label founded by Ben Sidran in collaboration with Liquid 8 Records & Entertainment of Minneapolis. The first Nardis Music release was “The Original” by legendary drummer Clyde Stubblefield.
