Product Launch: RFID specialist eAgile Inc. announces eTap intelligent packaging solution


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. /Advertising & Marketing News/ — NEWS: Leading U.S.-based RFID specialist eAgile Inc. recently announced their eTap&trqde; solution for an “intelligent packaging solution for consumer products utilizing near field communication” (NFC). This announcement is concurrent with Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) news this month, that the new iPhone® 6 will join the rest of the smartphone marketplace incorporating NFC capabilities.

The current marketing surrounding NFC is focused on mobile payments but there is a much broader use for this technology which connects manufacturers with consumers to provide robust product information.

NFC technology can be used to open up a direct line of communication between businesses and their end customers in a manner which was previously not available. NFC-enabled tags on products provide immediate access to valuable information such as product authenticity, safety and other key information. This functionality is important for all products, especially those intended for human consumption in the medical, food and beverage markets. NFC technology is positioned to be a key component in the Internet of Things (IoT) movement, which links people and organizations to the products and services they use through the internet.

“eAgile’s solution helps brand owners build trust and loyalty by establishing a dialog with their customers. eTap NFC tags can be created to launch specific web pages, videos or social media content through a quick tap of a smartphone,” states eAgile President Peter Phaneuf. “Businesses of all sizes are already putting NFC technology to work to improve the customer experience and we are excited to expand our NFC-based products to the greater marketplace.” eAgile is one of a few companies with the infrastructure and experience already in place to help businesses gain easy access to NFC.

“NFC products are easy to use, functional and fun, which are key aspects for broad adoption of this technology,” explains Gary Burns, CEO of eAgile. “Research has shown that customers are 12 times more likely to use NFC than a QR code. Our eTap solution becomes the perfect way to communicate with consumers and compete in an increasingly information driven marketplace.” eAgile offers many patented solutions for brand protection, inventory and high volume production incorporating NFC tags.

About eAgile Inc.:

eAgile, based in Grand Rapids, Mich., sets the industry standard in RFID solutions by providing high quality, cost effective auto-identification products, hardware and software solutions that are finely tuned to customer needs. eAgile has one of the broadest ISO 9001:2008 certifications, which covers tag production, data management software and the building of complete RFID infrastructures.

Prostate Pillow

Product Launch: Enviromax Prostate Joy Pillow helps men remove the prostate taboo

Prostate Pillow

ANCHORAGE, Alaska /Advertising & Marketing News/ — NEWS: External prostate massage is a safe, easy, and fun way for men to learn how to stimulate their prostate, says men’s health product manufacturer Enviromax. The company is very excited about its newest and most affordable ‘entry-level’ prostate massager called the Prostate Joy Pillow.

“With our new product line, men simply sit on an external prostate massager to increase circulation to their prostate,” says Adam McVay, Owner/Inventor, at Enviromax. “Increasing circulation has many health benefits according to research studies conducted by prestigious universities including Harvard Medical School. As an extra benefit, prostate massage can also make men feel better than they ever dreamed possible!”

The original Prostate Cradle was created in 2004 as the world’s first patented external prostate massager. “The Cradle” was introduced as a device for men’s health, but soon after it was introduced, Enviromax customers began writing in to say they were having the best sex of their lives while sitting on the Prostate Cradle.

The next model created by Enviromax was the Extra Soft Prostate Cradle. It is designed for men with sore or tender prostates. Enviromax’s third model, the Prostate Jewel, was created due to customer demand for a more firm massager. “The Jewel” has the same anatomically correct shape as the Cradle, but without the cushioning holes for more stimulation to the prostate.

Enviromax is very excited about its newest and most affordable “entry-level” prostate massager called the Prostate Joy Pillow. The “Joy Pillow” is truly the softest prostate massager ever invented.

“Similar to the Cradle, the Joy Pillow can be purchased with a built-in vibrator feature that really helps to get men’s prostate motor running!” adds McVay.

All Enviromax massagers are available in different sizes and colors.

“Men all over the world are discovering the joys of external prostate massage because it is so easy and accessible. No oils or towels are required. External prostate massagers offer both a complement and an alternative to traditional internal prostate massagers,” explains McVay.

Enviromax products have been praised by Medical Doctors, urologists, and Licensed Massage Therapists. The Prostate Cradle has been featured in Muscle & Fitness magazine, as well as two popular books, “Healthy Prostate” by Ronald Bazar, and “The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Pleasure” by Charlie Glickman, PhD.

External prostate massagers are for adult men, ages 18 to 80+ years old, who want to maintain their physical health and improve their love-life. This includes men who are familiar with prostate massage, and men who may have been turned off in the past by traditional internal prostate massagers.

Target Microsystems Inc

HEBRON, Ohio /Advertising & Marketing News/ -- NEWS: SentryMart today announced availability of TeleSentry™, an innovative new miniature emergency response system well suited for protection of women of all ages. TeleSentry, built to meet alarm industry standards, can get help anywhere in the USA 24/7/365 where there's T-Mobile 2G cellular service. SentryMart is a division of Target Microsystems, Inc.

He adds, "Traditional Emergency Response Monitoring TV commercials have long focused sole attention on protection of homebound older women, ignoring the protective needs of actively mobile women. Traditional emergency response systems only provide protection in the home and within about 300 feet of the home. There's no protection if there's an emergency while away from home."

Just press a tiny button, and a powerful built-in speaker and microphone enable 2-way voice contact with a certified emergency care dispatcher who knows who you are, and can know where you are via the U-TDOA network.

The dispatcher quickly summons the needed help, and can stay on the line until help arrives. In a medical emergency, the dispatcher can provide EMS with a summary of unique medical conditions, and any special dispatch instructions (911 operators don't have such information).

TeleSentry's design is elegantly simple, rugged and shower-safe. It's small, measuring only 1 3/4-inches x 1 3/4-inches x 5/8-inches and weighing just over an ounce. There's no hassle about keeping it plugged into a charger every night. Its rechargeable battery lasts up to 2 months between charges, and phone reminders are sent if the battery is nearly run down. Advanced cellular technology provides structure penetration and tower range greater than many cell phones.

Of great importance to women, TeleSentry provides non-demeaning invisible protection. It can be carried in pocket or purse, but is most effective when worn as a neck pendant under shirt or blouse, for easy access when seconds count. That's particularly important for active young women. According to Department of Justice statistics, girls ages 16-19 are four times more likely than the general population to be victims of rape or sexual assault. Portability also offers a great blessing for active older women living alone. It's a truism that seniors are able to live independently longer if they know that they can summon help 24/7/365 by just pressing a button, wherever they may be.

Buy TeleSentry for $89.95. The first month's monitoring is free. Thereafter there's a continuing $24.95/month monitoring fee, payable by automated monthly debit to credit card or debit card. There's no long-term contract, and there's a one year warranty. There's a money back guarantee, if not satisfied return within 30 days for a full refund. Visit for more information or to order online.

KEFIRAN Offers Best of Kefir-in-a-Capsule, Contains No Dairy or Lactose, and is Gluten Free

gluten free diet

VERO BEACH, Fla. /Advertising & Marketing News/ -- NEWS: A new dietary supplement from Lane Labs-USA intends to solve a major problem for legions of lactose- and gluten-intolerant individuals who would like to add kefir, the fermented milk drink known for its digestive benefits, to their diets. 'New KEFIRAN(TM) capsules offer consumers the health benefits of traditional kefir,' explains Lane Labs product development manager Beatrice Querel, 'but with no lactose, no gluten, no dairy or animal products of any kind.'

Great for the gut!

Scientists believe the secret to kefir's remarkable benefits lies in a complex polysaccharide, kefiran, which is formed from the activity of the L. kefiranofaciens bacteria found only in traditional kefir.

Two KEFIRAN capsules provide as much kefiran polysaccharide, which is a form of fiber, as one full quart of traditional milk kefir drink - plus 50 BILLION live probiotic cultures from 7 different lactobacillus strains to support healthy digestion and overall well-being (*See Note). The capsules are small and easy to swallow.

Contains no milk, no dairy, no lactose, no gluten, and is vegan.

A traditional drink that originated hundreds of years ago in the mountains of the Caucasus, where longevity is legendary, kefir is rapidly gaining popularity with health-conscious U.S. consumers. However, its tart flavor and gluey texture are a turn-off for some, and its dairy base is problematic for others.

Unlike most kefir drinks, Kefiran polysaccharide is made from fermented non-GMO rice and contains no lactose, no gluten, no animal products, and no calories. It has no taste at all.

KEFIRAN is now available to consumers at select natural health and vitamin retailers. Suggested retail price is $39.95 per bottle of 60 veggie capsules. For more information call toll free 1-800-526-3005 or visit or .

Behind My Walls Service Helps Homebuilders and Remodelers Get Interior Advantage

construction industry

PRINCETON, N.J. /Advertising & Marketing News/ -- NEWS: Behind My Walls, a new service for the construction industry, provides home builders with a competitive edge and new home owners with peace of mind. It takes photos of what's behind each wall just prior to insulation. It's a simple concept with a multitude of benefits.

So, how does it work? The photos are taken and digitally catalogued. The home builder is provided with two logins - one for himself and one for the buyer. He then has the option to offer the service to the buyer as a free promotion, or he can charge a small fee for this optional upgrade.

Each photo is organized and labeled according to floor, room and wall direction. Just imagine how helpful this information could really be.

For example, if a new home buyer wants to hang a flat-screen television, it's easy to identify what's behind the wall (e.g., stud location, electrical wires, pipes, etc.). Or, if a plumber needs to find the source of a leak, interior wall photos can save time and money. What if a wall needs to come down during a remodeling project? Estimates are now more accurate because contractors know what to expect.

"Behind My Walls offers a new service that can really help new home builders set themselves apart from the competition," Jairo Waszaj, owner, says.

And Waszaj understands the importance of this service firsthand.

"With more than 15 years in the home construction and development industry, I see tremendous value in this unique service," says Waszaj. "Our goal is to be an irreplaceable asset to the home builder, future contractors and home owners. By partnering with home builders and adding this technology element, we can take the industry to a whole new level."

Access to photos can also be purchased by future home buyers. So, for instance, whether the first home owner received this photo package as a free builder promotion or if it was purchased as an add-on service, the next buyer can purchase the photos too.

The builder's cost is based on square footage. For example, a typical 3,000-square foot property costs $300.

Great White Enterprises, LLC announces Future for Wisconsin Real Estate – The IDX Store

Wisconsin Real Estate

OMRO, Wis. /Advertising & Marketing News/ -- NEWS: Traditionally, when buyers purchase a home, they enter into a Buyer Agency Representation Agreement with a real estate brokerage. Upon purchase, the broker, Buyer's agent, will receive the compensation offered by the owner or owner's agent, the listing broker. Not anymore. Paul Landig, broker, president Great White Enterprises, LLC in Wisconsin, had a vision that's now become a reality: The IDX Store.

According to the Wisconsin REALTORS(R) Association, it's important to remind buyers that Wisconsin housing remains very affordable even in light of recent price increases. It also reports that while the housing market has definitely tightened up over the last year with declining inventories and higher prices, excellent buying opportunities still exist.

And now with new services provided by the IDX store, the Wisconsin real estate market is looking even brighter. Why? The IDX Store is Wisconsin's only real estate brokerage that provides a Buyer Agency Representation Agreement via the convenience of an on-line store and returns 100 percent of their commission that is collected at closing as an incentive. Even better is that it can all happen from the comfort of a favorite chair, while on a computer or mobile device.

"The Buyer Representation Agreement states: Great White Enterprises, LLC will pay as an incentive to Buyer, an amount equal to 80 percent of the compensation which Broker actually receives from Owner or Owner's agent at closing. In addition, Broker agrees to transfer to listing broker, at closing, an amount equal to 20 percent of the compensation which Broker actually receives from Owner or Owner's agent," Landig says.

New clients are contacted via e-mail by the client's broker (Buyer's agent), who then provides detailed property information that matches their specific needs. If the buyer finds a property that he or she would like more information on, the buyer notifies their broker, Buyer's agent, who will then contact the listing agent on the buyer's behalf.

It's as easy as 1-2-3. Buyers sign their documents on DocuSign, search for properties and buy their property - all for a low, flat fee of $475.

"We live in a world that is fast-paced and technology driven," Landig says. "It was just a matter of time before a product like this came along. The time is here."

About The IDX Store:

The IDX Store is a division of Great White Enterprises, LLC. It offers a convenient, secure and profitable approach to buying real estate in Wisconsin. For more information, visit: .

Vapshot Inc. announces Vaporized Spirits for the Hospitality and Nightclub Industry – First Lab-Tested System for Responsible Consumption

night clubs

AUSTIN, Texas /Advertising & Marketing News/ -- NEWS: Vapshot, Inc. today announced a refreshing new way to enjoy mixed drinks, cocktails or shots. Vapshot is served in specially designed containers, which are pressurized and premixed with various spirits. Vapshots do not contain glycol or glycerine. There is no introduction of any additional chemicals or compounds when consuming a Vapshot.

"We wanted to bring a little science to the party," said Lary Cotten, CTO, Vapshot. "Our goal was to create a new, innovative, and responsible way to enjoy adult beverages."

When served, you simply twist the cap, "pop the top" and a portion of the liquor will instantly vaporize right before your eyes. The process brings out the true flavor of the liquor, making it an aromatic and pleasant experience.

The Vapshot machine is capable of injecting a fine mist of spirits into the serving container under pressure. Self-contained and automated, it provides a liter of capacity for each of the two dispensing guns allowing for the pouring of spirits only, a Vapshot (vapor only) or a Vapshot-plus (vapor and shot). LED name plates provide product labeling and a 14-inch color LED is built-in for display of promotional videos.

Due to the efficiency of the system, up to 1,500 Vapshots can be produced from a single 750ml bottle of 80-proof alcohol.

The Vapshot machine is constructed from the highest quality materials including aluminum and stainless steel. Food and medical grade components ensure years of trouble free service.

Vapshot can be served many different ways: Vapshot (vapor only), Vapshot plus a shot of liquor, and a Vapshot mix drink.

Vapshot was designed to provide a responsible way to enjoy alcohol beverages in a new and exciting manner. A Vapshot 1-liter serving, after 1 minute, will give a breathalyzer test of less than 0.05 percent. Within 10 minutes the level will return to 0.00 percent.

Even consumption of a 1-liter Vapshot every 10 minutes is well below standards set by OSHA for intake of ethyl alcohol.

Unlike e-cigarettes, Vapshots do not contain glycol or glycerine. There is no introduction of any additional chemicals or compounds when consuming a Vapshot.

Vapshot's vaporization process does not require any heat, which can produce vapors that may cause a burning sensation when consumed. In fact, Vapshot can be served at room temperature or even chilled. Other vaporization products use heat or a chemical reaction to vaporize the alcohol, thereby introducing factors that may be a negative to health and safety. Vapshot is not in that same category of products.

Designed to be offered as single serving portions, Vapshot is not a system for continual and constant delivery of vapors.

The Vapshot machine is priced at $3,999 with additional cost for the containers based on model and quantity.

Complete details about Vapshot can be found at: .

New Android program ‘Flight Map’ tracks in-flight progress with aid of GPS satellites

Android apps

PRAGUE, Czech Republic /Advertising & Marketing News/ -- NEWS: Makro Productions today announced the release of 'Flight Map - a unique new Android app that gives air travelers the ability to personally track their flights in real-time using GPS tech, just like the flight tracking programs offered by airlines on some long-distance flights.

"The difference is that you are holding the tracker in your own hand, on your own device, and you can use it on any flight, whether the airline is offering its own flight tracker or not," said Makro Productions President Marko Haulis.

He added, "This is great for those who love flight trackers but find themselves on flights that do not offer the feature. Even on a flight where an airline is offering a flight tracker, Flight Map is still quite useful, offering you the flexibility and convenience of a personal flight tracker. Say you are watching a movie and you want to check your flight status. With Flight Map you won't have to interrupt your video. You can just refer to your Android device."

Because the application relies on a database of airports and flight paths downloaded onto one's device, and the tracking is done via GPS satellites, Flight Map does not require an Internet or data connection to function. That means it can operate in the "Airplane Mode" common to modern smartphones, and not violate rules against mobile phone use during a flight.

Flight Map's features include:
* Realtime position of the plane on the map;
* Zoomable world map not dependent on a connection to the Internet;
* Works when your phone is in Airplane Mode, so it can be used anytime while in flight;
* Database of world airports;
* Estimated Time to Destination and Time to Arrival, depending on the plane type and position;
* Multi-language (currently English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Russian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Czech).

Christmas Angel Network Delivers Door-to-Door Holiday Trees and Charity for the Holiday Season

holiday trees

LOS ANGELES, Calif. /Advertising & Marketing News/ -- NEWS: With the establishment of the Christmas Angel Network (CAN), entrepreneur Theodore "Ted" Myles has not only effectively tackled the six-foot Fraser Fir transportation issue, but he has also created a method to provide holiday fundraising for charities and organizations in the process.

Christmastime brings the warm waft of evergreens in the air. But for anyone who has ever stacked a six-foot Fraser Fir on the roof of a car, sometimes the transporting of that wondrous pine scent can be more than challenging, says Myles.

"The holiday season is big business reaching up to 1.5 billion dollars with just fresh tree sales alone," cites Myles. "My intention was to tap into that market and offer an effective fundraiser for charities, while at the same time providing a valuable service to the consumer. The Christmas Angel Network is able to deliver the most cost efficient and affordable door-to-door delivery service available while offering organizations and charities the opportunity to also tap into and benefit financially from the market as well!"

The Christmas Angel Network offers cost effective delivery of holiday trees door-to-door anywhere in the country. In addition, organizations, churches and charities can make use of the Christmas Angel Network Fundraiser Program by utilizing their own special Christmas Angel Network discount code on all their sales referrals and receive a percentage of the proceeds on every order.

The Christmas Angel Network Fundraiser Program is designed to boost charitable organizations nationwide with an annual, continual stream of revenue derived from sales from the site. A free discount code is provided to each agency which stores their accumulate sales activity. At the end of the season, the number of times the code was used will determine the amount to be paid to the organization.

The Christmas Angel Network's added benefit is that unlike most trees that are cut down in October and sit until sold, their trees are cut to order and arrive within a few days of being harvested. Therefore they have a stronger, fresher scent and last longer throughout the holiday season. The online network also offers wreaths, garlands, tree stands and decorative accessories. The vast selection of holiday decor is perfect for seasonal fundraiser opportunities.

Ted's love affair with trees began as a youth while working on Christmas lots during the holiday season. He learned to distinguish between the varied saplings including the Noble Fir, Fraser Fir, White Pine, Balsam, and of course the Evergreen, all of which are sold via the Christmas Angel Network. The experience taught him that the right tree was just as important as the right price and led him to create the Christmas Angel Network.

Placing an online order with the Christmas Angel Network is easy and fun. Selections include trees of all sizes and varied origins. Organizations can also sign up for their own fundraising discount code.

A vast grove of delectable firs await at .

Set It & Forget It is a New Sales and Marketing CRM Content Delivery System for B2B and B2C Optimization

Mike Troutman

LOS ANGELES, Calif. /Advertising & Marketing News/ -- NEWS: Set It & Forget It today announced a new sales and marketing content delivery system which provides users with supporting documents and multimedia assets at their fingertips. In fewer than six hours, its SaaS management framework alerts the end-user to updated content. Offline accessibility, light-weight architecture, and simplicity are what set it apart from other document management systems.

Customizable content delivery tools include desktop and iPad-based systems. Once the service is set up, end users can easily and quickly access content in just a few clicks; they can essentially Set It & Forget It.

"While there are many programs that focus on customer relationship management (CRM) tools, after working in the life science industry for more than 30 years, I realized there was an unmet need in the area of content delivery and management; it was either missing or inefficient. So, I created a tool that places content of any type at the user's fingertips," Mike Troutman, founder and CEO, Set It & Forget It, says.

Set It & Forget It's customizable content delivery tools are ideal for sales and marketing teams working internally as well as in the field. Sales tools are the materials that personnel need to sell and support their products. Items may include: marketing brochures, presentations, videos, troubleshooting information, specifications and competitive information. This content needs to be current, consolidated and easy-to-use to increase efficiency of the sales cycle.

Troutman's six-step solution includes: content collection; revision control; delivery as localized content; updating; notification; and ease-of-use.

An easy-to-use user interface for the Custom Content Tool Box is where existing revisions can simply be dragged and dropped, saving time for the user and contributor. This user interface can also be easily customized.

And, as the old adage goes, "time is money." Consider these cost savings: A piece of content takes 70 seconds to access. Now, it takes 10 seconds. That saves one minute of time per piece of content. So, if an employee makes $60 per hour and accesses one piece of content per day, that's $1 per day, $25 per month or $300 per year. 100 employees accessing one document per day over the course of one year would total $30,000 in savings.

The bottom line is that this is a simple, low-cost, custom content delivery system which can be initiated without the need for an expensive CRM system.

Once installed, the user can Set It & Forget It while resting assured that the most current content will be there when they need it.

About Set It & Forget It, Inc.:

Founded in June 2013, Set It & Forget It, Inc. is a consulting firm that specializes in sales tools for customized content delivery systems.

Global DMS announces new AMCmatch – a search engine to efficiently locate and qualify the best fit appraisal management company

valuation management software

LANSDALE, Pa. /Advertising & Marketing News/ -- NEWS: Global DMS, the leading provider of Web-based compliant valuation management software, announced that it launched AMCmatch, a search engine that allows lenders, servicers and other users of valuation products to efficiently locate and qualify the best fit appraisal management company (AMC) for their needs.

"All too often, organizations select AMCs that fail to produce quality appraisals, operate out of compliance, are financially unstable, aren't licensed in the states they do business in, and may have payment issues with appraisers, among other concerns," stated Vladimir Bien-Aime, president and CEO of Global DMS. "AMCmatch remedies these problems by providing a Web portal that utilizes our enterprise-class appraisal management technology to list well-profiled, qualified AMCs that aid lending organizations in their due diligence and selection process for new AMCs."

Approved AMCs that are listed on the site are able to facilitate online ordering, automated collateral reviews, high volume production, superior customer service and direct integration to the GSEs' Uniform Collateral Data Portal (UCDP). Lending entities benefit by being able to visit the site and enter in specific search criteria to locate established, reputable AMCs that have a proven track record of compliantly delivering quality appraisals. Users of the site can sign up for free without contracts and any additional fees.

The data that resides in AMCmatch's search engine includes AMC type, years in business, location, area coverage, licensing, and payment acceptance types. All information and current state licensing is continually verified by Global DMS to ensure that all matches are current, correct and simple to access, thus enabling AMCmatch to return accurate information and create a first-rate user experience. makes it easy for users to quickly locate the right AMC for their specific needs without extensive research and verification. As a result, the time invested in the due diligence process in order to properly vet AMCs is slashed, making it painless, ensuring the accuracy of information, and allowing lenders to focus on production-and AMCs to focus on collateral.

Bien-Aime added: "Doing business with the wrong AMC can result in tens of thousands of dollars in fines, risk investor kick backs, taint relationships with appraisers and leave lenders with unjust financial responsibilities. Per the Dodd-Frank Act, issues with appraisals almost always come back to the lender whether it is their fault or not. That's why it's so important to choose the right AMCs to do business with-the first time."

Company officials at Global DMS say that they have been adding new AMCs and will continue to add more, but it is being very selective about those that reside in AMCmatch's database.

SafeToSleep Sleep and Breathing Monitor

Product Launch: SafeToSleep Sleep and Breathing Monitor uses Fiber Optic Tech to Detect Baby’s Breath Rate

SafeToSleep Sleep and Breathing MonitorDETROIT, Mich. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — SafeToSleep recently announced the launch of its innovative new baby product, the Sleep and Breathing Monitor, decribed by the company as “a breakthrough in infant sleep safety that monitors each breath of a sleeping baby with hospital accuracy and streams the breath wave to a smartphone as it occurs.” Unlike current baby monitors that use audio, video, or movement to monitor a sleeping baby, the SafeToSleep system uses advanced fiber optic technology to detect the baby’s actual breath rate and breath wave.

The Sleep and Breathing Monitor will alarm upon detection of slow, fast, and no breath events. The system tracks sleep time, generates sleep quality reports, and is wireless and portable. The breathing information is streamed to a smartphone (or included Parent Unit) as it occurs to alert parents of irregular breathing events. The system generates sleep time and sleep quality reports to help parents identify issues such as sickness or pain at the earliest possible stage.

“For the first time, parents can monitor the breathing of their sleeping baby, with clinical accuracy, every single time they put their baby to sleep,” said SafeToSleep co-founder, Dr. Ryan Santangelo. “This technology turns what has traditionally been a low-function gadget – the baby monitor – into a tool that will play a central role in infant care and sleep safety for generations to come. It is an evolution of the baby monitor to the greatest degree.”

The Sleep and Breathing Monitor has been hospital tested and clinically validated for accuracy. The hospital testing has shown the monitor to be as accurate as the breathing monitors used in hospital pediatric units around the world.

The Sleep and Breathing Monitor will be available online at in December 2012 and at select retailers beginning January 2013. The product will retail for USD $329.

About SafeToSleep:

The purpose of SafeToSleep(TM) is to improve infant care through the invention, improvement and application of user-friendly and intuitive technologies. The company was co-founded by brothers, parents, and technologists Ryan Santangelo, PhD and Pete Santangelo. Find out more at .

DukeXXX clothing 2011

Product Launch: Sagging pants culture gets law-friendly solution from DukeXXX clothing

ORLANDO, Fla. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — Wearing sagging pants has not only been outlawed in Florida public schools, but the Metropolitan Etiquette Authority recently launched a New York City-wide poster campaign to “Pull up Your Pants.” DukeXXX clothing has announced a new clothing line catering to the sagger look, but cleverly incorporates their unique “No drag sagg.”

Much controversy surrounds this Florida law. Civil rights groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) have even stepped in to voice their opinion. Additionally, a San Francisco musician, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, was recently booted off Southwest Airlines because his pants were hanging too low.

“Sagging has been greeted with such strong disapproval,” says Chris Gladin, vice president of sales and marketing for DukeXXX. “Some towns and cities across the country have already outlawed it and some states are taking Florida’s lead to try and institute a similar state-wide law. This is why we wanted to provide an alternative for saggers. DukeXXX ‘upholds’ freedom of choice, so to speak.”

With DukeXXX clothing, the boxers are sewn into the black, denim shorts; they are both attached into one piece of clothing. So, are the wearers of these shorts breaking any laws? Gladin, who claims a Ph.D in business, doesn’t think so.

“At DukeXXX, we believe that people should maintain the right to express themselves through their personal choice of clothing style,” says Gladin. “It seems that lawmakers should be focusing on more important issues like healthcare, the economy and the environment. Wearing sagging pants should not make the list.”

All clothing items are custom made with an urban design that resembles a cityscape. High school and college kids, skateboarders, surfers, city dwellers, guys and girls, and yes, even well-known musicians will all find something to strut their stuff in. Gladin adds that these items are not “off the rack.” They are hand sewn, high-quality clothing products made of 100 percent cotton.

Currently, DukeXXX offers clothing for guys and girls that include: shorts; bandanas; and T-shirts. DUKEXXX clothing is currently available at: .

Big Bay Brewing Co IPA 2011

Product Launch: Big Bay Brewing Co brews Long Weekend India Pale Ale (IPA)

MILWAUKEE, Wis. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — Big Bay Brewing Co. recently introduced its Long Weekend India Pale Ale (IPA). The IPA style brew is the first of a series of limited edition beers to be introduced by the Shorewood, Wisconsin-based craft brewer. Big Bay Brewing’s Long Weekend IPA gives a nod to the original heavily hopped English style ale with a nice spicy and floral hop flavor and aroma, balanced with a good malt back bone. The result is a balanced and enjoyable IPA.

IPAs have a rich history dating back to the 18th Century when British colonists needed to ensure that their beer would stay fresh and unspoiled during their long voyages from England to India. Brewers added extra hops and more fermented malt to their ales to prevent spoilage on the journey and to withstand the warmer climates of India. The new style was embraced and came to be known as India Pale Ale.

“The IPA style is a popular craft beer with a strong hop aroma and flavor that complements the lushness of the late summer season. It’s a great beer to savor on those final long afternoons on the lake or warm evenings on the deck,” said Jeff Garwood, Big Bay Brewing Co. co-founder and managing partner.

The introduction of Long Weekend IPA marks Big Bay Brewing’s first limited edition brew. It will be available into the fall at which time the brewer will roll out its next limited edition style – a porter.

“Craft beer drinkers are interested in exploring new flavor profiles, and with our limited edition beers we’ll be able to deliver a greater variety of beer styles to meet the unique demands of our craft beer consumers throughout the year,” said Garwood.

The original test brew of Long Weekend IPA has been available for sampling at the Big Bay Brewing Co.’s Tasting Room and Retail Center, located at 4517 N. Oakland Ave. in Shorewood, Wis., for several weeks and has received positive feedback from tasting room visitors.

The craft brewer introduced its first two beers – Big Bay Brewing’s Boatilla Amber Ale(R) and the award-winning Wavehopper Kolsch Style Ale(R) – late last year and both have been well-received by retailers, restaurants and consumers across Wisconsin. Earlier this month, Big Bay Brewing launched its Oh Buoy! Cherry Cola and Pierjumper Twisting Citrus natural gourmet sodas across Wisconsin.

Developed from unique and exclusive recipes that feature proprietary yeast and the highest quality ingredients, Big Bay Brewing beers offer the distinctiveness of Wisconsin’s microbrews with a clean finish. They’re brewed slowly and methodically resulting in a well-balanced, robust, drinking experience. The company has an alternating proprietorship with the Milwaukee Brewing Company, which leases space, brewing time and equipment to Big Bay Brewing Co.

Big Bay Brewing’s Long Weekend, Boatilla Amber Ale and award-winning Wavehopper Kolsch Style Ale are available at select retailers, bars and restaurants across Wisconsin. They are sold at retail in six-packs of 12-oz. bottles, as well as in draft form in 1/4 barrel slim kegs and 1/2 barrels. Big Bay products are sold by local distributors across Wisconsin, including Beer Capitol Distributing Inc., Frank Beer Distributors Inc., CJW Inc., Lee Beverage of Wisconsin, Kay Beer Distributing and Zastrow the Beer Man.

nourisH2O Nutrient Water

Multi-Flow Industries announces nourisH2O – new shelf-stable Fountain-Dispensed Nutrient-Enhanced Vitamin Water

HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — Multi-Flow Industries, a Beverage Processor founded in 1937, announces an innovative new shelf-stable Fountain-Dispensed Nutrient-Enhanced Water brand. nourisH20 is offered strictly as a fountain beverage, available in Bag-in-the-Box or Cartridges. The brand is available for immediate national distribution to all healthcare locations, restaurants, foodservice, and all other locations that serve fountain-dispensed liquid refreshment beverages.

The genesis of “nourisH20″ developed from requests of several healthcare foodservice directors who have experienced a sharp increase in their juice costs (primarily orange juice and apple juice concentrates, which more than doubled in the last 2 years).

Dennis Nahill, the Director of Sales Operations, felt that “There’s a tremendous need among Foodservice Operators for Bag-In-the-Box, fortified and flavored water. Especially now, with sharply rising food costs. Operators can’t control the cost of commodities, but at least they can control what they choose to serve, which ultimately pumps up their bottom line.”

Nahill stated that “Healthcare facilities that are bound by strict budgets have found that by replacing one serving of orange or apple juice each day with nourisH2O, they can save thousands of dollars annually. These savings are possible because nourisH20 is vitamin-enriched and can easily be substituted for one of the required juice servings per day.”

Multi-Flow’s Product Development Team, led by Director Owen Rothstein, ensured that nourisH20 met 3 primary requirements. “The first goal,” said Rothstein, “was to insist on the ‘nutrient’ aspect. Our new brand delivers stress-relieving, performance-boosting B-Complex, including cholesterol-improving, detoxifying Niacin, as well as antioxidant-rich Vitamin C, which aids growth and repair of muscles and tissues.”

The second goal, according to Rothstein, was to “nourish the palate. We have several flavors that scored exceptionally during blind taste tests, including the subtle sensations of watermelon, strawberry- kiwi, pomegranate and peach. In addition to the flavor, we utilized a light application of Splenda brand sucralose to keep the brand zero-calorie and pleasant tasting.”

Upon completion of the nourisH20™ branding, Multi-Flow CEO Mark Stephens was pleased enough with the finished product to introduce the brand into the restaurant and hospitality industries. “Consumers continue to demand lower-calorie, better-tasting, healthier beverages,” Stephens said. “nourisH20 delivers on every one of those benefits. The brand offers restaurants yet another opportunity to increase revenue by offering their customers an alternative to ‘tap water,’ which is requested almost 50% of the time during dining occasions, but at zero revenue and a negative margin.”

citrus splash soft drink brand

Product Launch: Multi-Flow Reveals New Soft Drink Brand ‘Citrus Splash’

HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — Multi-Flow Industries, a Beverage Processor founded in 1937, recently launched a new Fountain-Dispensed Lemon-Lime Carbonated Soft Drink brand. CEO Mark Stephens announced, “We’re incredibly proud of our new premium lemon-lime soft drink, that has consistently beaten all 3 of the other national brands in blind taste tests.

“Citrus Splash” offers a unique balance of lemon and lime flavors. Product Development Director Owen Rothstein tested dozens of flavor mixtures, including several different blends of sweeteners.

The brand name was developed by one of Multi-Flow’s Route Drivers in Fort Lauderdale, Florida: Reggie Garret. During the brand team’s visit to the Miami area, Reggie offered up “Citrus Splash” as a potential name for the new soft drink.

Stephens said, “As soon as it came out of Reggie’s mouth, I knew we had the perfect brand name for the perfect new beverage.” Based on “Taste Panels” from consumer focus groups, the descriptive tag, “Crisp, Light, and Refreshing” was subsequently added.

StudioBLADE DAW keyboard

Product Launch: StudioBlade and iKeyDock music instrument brands launched by Texas-based Music Computing

AUSTIN, Texas /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — Music Computing, Inc. today announced their brand new line of keyboard workstations for both gigging musicians and any size recording studio, are now shipping. The StudioBLADE(TM) and iKeyDOCK(TM) are complete, portable production stations, which either include a built-in Windows 7 64-bit PC with touch-screen and DAW software and virtual software instruments, or a docking system for any PC/Mac notebook.

About the Music Computing StudioBLADE: The StudioBLADE(TM) series are complete music production workstations powered by Intel(R) processors and 64-bit Windows(R) 7, and each model ships with a total studio package with DAW (digital audio workstation), virtual instruments, mastering effects, and utilities to customize the exclusive ControlDAW(TM) MIDI control surface. Support for 2 additional monitors allows for total workspace customization.

“With remarkable audio processing capabilities like ‘drag and drop mastering,’ the StudioBLADE is one of the most powerful keyboard instruments ever built,” said company CEO, Victor Wong. “At just 28 pounds and 36-inches in length, the 61-key version of the StudioBLADE is a truly portable all-in-one ‘grab and go’ solution for the gigging musician, or a home studio user with limited space.”

A powerful combination of hands-on control begins with the tilt and telescoping 10.1-inch touch panel (more than twice the size of most workstation screens), the high-quality 61-key synth action, or 88-key weighted piano action keyboard; and formidable ControlDAW interactive knobs, buttons, and sliders, managed by GeoMIDI(TM) mapping software.

The large 64-button grid control surface, in addition to knobs and sliders, is a powerful tool for musicians using grid-style programs like Ableton Live, or classic drum pad boxes like the Akai(R) MPC. Music Computing’s TriggerGrid(TM) sample trigger player for drum pads turns the grid surface into a massive 64-pad virtual percussion instrument.

Each StudioBLADE also includes Studio One Pro from Presonus, a highly respected DAW solution complete with virtual instruments and mastering FX, plus 10GB of sounds. Music Computing’s included SonicSource(TM) VSTi soft-synth contains thousands of sound presets providing a giant (8GB) starting point for both analog and digital textures.

Pricing starts at $2599 (US/SRP) for the 61-key Intel Core2 base configuration with 24/48 audio, 2 combo XLR and 1/4-inch mic inputs with phantom power, 2 balanced outs, and headphone jack. Optional upgrades include 24/96 audio and 8 inputs, more RAM, and internal hard drives, to suit the user’s needs.

Complete StudioBLADE information and images: .

About the Music Computing iKeyDOCK: The innovative and first-to-market iKeyDOCK(TM) keyboard workstations are OS platform neutral and suitable for any musician already comfortable with using a Windows(R) OS, and/or Apple Mac(R) notebook. The iKeyDOCK line handily bridges the gap between a system that can easily be transported to gigs, be used as a full-time docking station for any home or commercial studio, and any combination of these situations.

Similar to the StudioBLADE series, minus the touch screen and internal PC, the iKeyDOCK provides a dockable solution for any notebook; simply plug-in and start playing. Like the StudioBLADE, a full-size 61-key synth-action style, or 88-key piano-style high-quality keyboard, audio and MIDI I/O, ControlDAW(TM) MIDI control surface, and performance software are all part of the package.

For gigging musicians, finally cut the wires of having a MIDI keyboard, MIDI interface, external hard drives, and notebook as separate elements. With the iKeyDOCK, you simply place any notebook up to 17-inch screen size into the docking section and make connections for USB or FireWire and you immediately have a full workstation that looks good on stage, and fits on all standard keyboard stands. At just 24 lbs. the iKeyDOCK is a truly portable system.

There is simply no other solution on the market that does what the iKeyDOCK from Music Computing can do – and it’s affordably priced, starting at $1499 (US/SRP) with 24/48 audio, 2 combo XLR and 1/4-inch mic inputs with phantom power, 2 balanced outs, and headphone jack. Optional upgrades include 24/96 audio and 8 inputs. Optional internal 2.5-inch hard drives expand storage for notebooks to replace the need for external drives.

The iKeyDOCK may also be used with a desktop PC/Mac via 2xUSB or 1xUSB plus 1x FireWire, for maximum flexibility.
