Iron Technology Exereo Platform

Too often the Internet’s profusion of information results in “Fatal Success,” where searches return so many matches that it becomes impossible to weed through them all. This “Information Gridlock” threatens to shatter the promise of the Internet, since a search that yields 1,000 unsuitable results is worth no more than a search that returns zero matches. If buyers can’t break through the clutter to meet sellers, e-businesses are poised to fail.
Exeo’s groundbreaking technology finally eliminates Fatal Success by introducing intuition
to the online search process. Companies now can choose the criteria essential to their online search and rank each factor according to its importance. In turn, the companies or consumers sought can then be matched within these specifically selected parameters. Exereo delivers the best available results instantly–every time.
The opportunities created by Exereo are nearly limitless. Now two parties can mutually communicate bi-directionally in real time to identify the matchmaking possibilities between them. Each party can customize its objectives to maximize the efficiency of the search. This unique exchange not only allows consumers to visualize supply, but also suppliers to visualize demand in the same instant.

How does it work?

The Iron Technology Exereo Platform (IEP), the first product released by Iron Technology, is a next-generation e-commerce server. Exereo is the perfect complement for B2B, B2C, CRM and Biotechnology endeavors, or any company reliant upon the rapid processing of vast amounts of data.
Improving the efficiency and quality of e-commerce, Exereo filters unnecessary information, prioritizes criteria and enables the creation of real-time, two-way communication. Exereo’s matching technology models real-life decision making and intuitively understands the user’s individual priorities.
Exereo’s unique system of Priority Weighting lets users designate the importance of each factor of the search. By incorporating an exclusive algorithm, Exereo guarantees the best available results every time. Unlike traditional matching technologies, Exereo is able to process vast amounts of data instantly, and to provide results in real time. Fully scalable, Exereo can easily adjust to each company’s individual needs. Exereo enables a mobile workforce by sending alert notifications when conditions change through any medium: e-mail, wireless or the Web.

Overview

The Exereo Developers Network (EDN) is designed to help selected services and technology companies leverage the power of Exereo to develop innovative solutions and grow their business.
EDN encompasses a variety of programs to enable its members to best leverage their core competencies when working with Iron Technology. Iron Technology helps its partners:
 Co-design and co-develop leading edge solutions and methodologies.
 Market services and solutions through awareness and demand generation programs.
 Deploy to and support their customers through rich technology and consulting.

Bronze EDN

Bronze is the entry level into EDN. Companies and individuals with a Bronze membership have gone through the Exereo Introduction training course and are prepared to sell and architect Exereo based e-business solutions. Bronze members logos are displayed under the appropriate section on Iron Technology’s site.

Benefits of a Multifunctional Printer

Imagine you are in your home office, sitting on your desk and observing all your office hardware. First you start on your laptop computer then look your printer, next to your scanner, to your photocopier, bond paper storage area, hundreds of wires, and other office machines. It looks untidy, no doubt because you definitely want space to do your work with ease.

To solve this problem, buying a multifunctional printer could be an amazing solution. Multifunctional printers are praised for their multiple benefits. This is because they can print, scan, fax, and photocopy in one machine. What I will share in this article are the benefits of a multifunctional printer. I will tackle on its advantages as I start on explaining its features.
First benefit of a multifunctional printer is it takes very little space. You do not need individual equipment’s to carry out one of these functions because a multifunctional printer does several tasks in one device. This also suggests that it is much cheaper than individually acquiring a printer, scanner, and a photocopying machine.

I assure you, you can save 50% from getting an all in one printer than acquiring its functions on separate machines. Another reason why you should consider whether to buy a multifunctional printer is its networking compatibility. It is wise to have a multi-function printer in an office with many network computers. In this manner, you can share its features to several users without any set up required.

Speaking of installation, multi-function printers are very easy to install. However, it also depends on what printer brands you select. You can look on several brands of printers online so you could carefully select what type of multi-function printer to purchase. At http://best-cheap-printer.com you find more details about multi-function printer and also the discounted deals of best multi-function printers.

The Acceleration of Technology is Giving Birth to the Singularity

Technology is moving fast – in areas like robotics, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, and nanotechnology. Within only a few decades, mankind will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly after, the human era will be ended as we most likely will merge with our technology – and become posthuman. Such is the thinking processes of the great mathematician Vernor Vinge and the contemporary inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil. Mr. Kurzweil’s book is shown – it is a wonderful read – I am currently on my 2nd pass through it…

Kurzweil considers this sharp increase to be part of an overall exponential trend in human technological development seen originally in Moore’s Law and extrapolated into a general trend in Kurzweil’s own Law of Accelerating Returns. This law sees technology increasing at an increasing rate, and whenever barriers pop up which prevents the further acceleration of the technology – a paradigm shift happens. A paradigm shift is a new framework on which the technology is based – for computation – it is like going from vacuum tubes to transistors to integrated circuits. Future paradigm shifts in computation will most likely migrate to 3d microprocessors – to quantum computing.

While some regard the Technology Singularity as a positive event and work to hasten its arrivalothers view the Technology Singularity as dangerousundesirableor unlikely to occur.

Thanks for visiting streamlinetrial.co.uk.  If you like technology and enjoy thinking about the forest rather than just the trees – thinking about the social and ethical aspects of technology.

Ibiza Ride Watch – Time Keeping at Its Best!

Watches that tell the time using hands are so last year, which is where this binary watch comes into its element.

If you’are looking for a watch to spark off a conversation or if you want to look smart, then the Ibiza Ride Binary Watch is the watch for you! Destined to become a collectible the IBIZA RIDE displays time and date by using LED lights to indicate hours and minutes. Made of high-quality stainless steel or a leather strap, whichever your choice, these binary watches feature 58 LEDs aligned in a vertical grid to display hours/minutes with PM indicator and date mode.

Both watches feature red and blue LEDs and are water-resistant to 3 ATM (90 feet), which to you and me means that, unless you go deep-sea diving on a Sunday afternoon it won’t get damaged if you wear it in the shower! These pairs of binary watches are truly stunning time-pieces that can tell the time as good as any other watch and are sure to draw comments from anyone who sees them.

Led Binary Watch – Samui Moon Binary Watches

Cryptography (or cryptology; derived from Greek kryptós meaning ‘hidden,’ and gráfein meaning ‘to write’) is a discipline of mathematics
So before we bore you to tears we’re pleased to be able to tell you that the Samui Moon Binary watches use binary coding to tell the time. This is good because the binary is one of the easiest cryptic codes out there and with a little practice the code is easy to break unlocking the secret time within.

As the old saying goes, what’s in a name! Both these stunning watches take their name from the beautiful Thai island of Koh Samui. While we can’t seem to draw any comparisons between the name and the watches it doesn’t take away the fact that both these models are just as impressive to look at as they are in use (Once you’ve worked out how to use them).

The stylish stainless steel presentation box (instructions included inside), sumptuously soft leather straps combined with polished stainless steel watch back, and casing all combine seamlessly with the fiery red or cool blue LEDs giving you a quality watch that far surpasses its price tag. The Samui watches are water-resistant to 30 meters/90 feet/3atm, come with batteries, and with the added intricate detail of the circuit board watch face replacing boring old long and short hands we’re sure even 007 would be jealous.

Now comes the essentially boring bit. There are 10 LEDs in total, used to indicate the numbers in the binary sequence (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32). The top row of LEDs indicates the hours while the bottom row tells you the minutes. By counting the LEDs that are lit and adding them together you can decipher the time.

The top (Hour) row of LEDs can be added together to represent any number between zero and twelve because the binary sequence includes 1, 2, 4, and 8 while the bottom row can be added together to represent any number between 0 and 59 because the bottom binary sequence will include the numbers 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32.

It really sounds like Mission Impossible but takes it from us you’ll be deciphering the code instantly once you get a little practice in! For all the technocrats amongst you, there are detailed instructions included (not that you’d need them of course).

The Need for Reliable and Affordable Computing

I am an avid computer fanqie have worked with and appreciated the many computing advances that have taken place over the last 20 years. But it has been a love-hate relationship. Wonderful advances in technology have been accompanied by an increasing amount of time just trying to keep things running. Great new programs have been introduced and improved, but sometimes there is just too much to learn to get the job done.

We have welcomed the magical world of email and the web, yet through the back door have come the uninvited guests of spam, viruses, and spyware. There have been significant advances in computing speed, however they often result in difficult hardware and software upgrades, and a financial burden trying to keep up.
Clearly, some of the progress in the computer world has actually made things more difficult.

And it doesn’t stop at the office. At home for years I have heard the same plaintive cry: “Dad, the computer’s not working.” Which often has meant more time I didn’t have to keep things running.
A personal computer can cost a school or business as much to maintain and support–usually much more than the original purchase price. It can cost as much to deal with a single virus or spyware attack as it would to replace the entire computer.

Because of these expenses, some organizations (unfortunately) have just given up and have accepted less-than-adequate performance from their PCs. But it doesn’t need to be that way. Basic reliable and affordable computing is available for under $200 per computer per year (really). When I first discovered the Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP), it was like seeing magic–imagine a Pentium 166 computer, that would otherwise be relegated to landfill, running programs at the speeds as fast as today’s most current computers.

I hope that you feel some of the same excitement that I did as you discover this great technology. Welcome to an exciting world: the world of “Linux”, “Thin Clients,” and “Open Source Software.” While you may not know what those terms mean, they ultimately represent a more reliable and more affordable computing experience than most people.  Complete school, lab, or business networks can be set up in less than a day and can provide years of inexpensive computer use.

Existing computers can be converted to high-speed workstations. Popular software programs like OpenOffice and Firefox run fast and effectively. There are no operating system or software licensing fees, no costly upgrades, and no viruses or spyware to worry about.
