In this economy, it isn’t just students and homeowners who are having trouble paying back their loans. In a statement on Monday, the US Department of Energy said that it had seized $21 million from Anaheim, California-based electric car maker Fisker Automotive, Inc. on April, 11. The DOE said that it will continue to seek repayment from a loan agreement made back in 2009. A payment was due this week, but was not met. This decision came several weeks after the company laid off three-quarters of its workers and had part of its $529 million loan frozen back in 2011.

A (Wireless) Doctor In Your Pocket

March 27th, 2013
A combination of disposable wireless sensors and smartphones is about to make health care more personal, immediate, and affordable. New solutions are emerging that harvest real-time health data and respond with on-the-spot warnings or suggestions. This technology will not only produce better outcomes, it will help extend the benefits of modern health care to people in developing countries and keep consumers everywhere better informed about the latest health products and practices.

The disposable wireless sensors being developed and commercialized by Gentag, Inc. are a good example. The sensors are intended for use by consumers and come packaged as either skin patches or specimen dipsticks. Gentag believes there is a huge global market for sensors that can be mass-produced, are easy to use, and work with popular smartphones and tablet computers.

Unlike telemedicine, which was conceived to conquer distance, Gentag's technology is mainly about immediacy. Consumers can use skin patches and dipsticks at their convenience in their homes and workplaces. Smartphone apps provide instant feedback and can automatically forward results to caregivers. Problems can be spotted in their earliest, most treatable stages and therapy can begin at once.

Significant Savings

Disposable sensors offer significant savings over traditional solutions. Most of the sensor designs lend themselves to high-volume mass production. They work with smartphones that consumers already have or are expected to have in the near future. And disposable wireless sensors avoid the costs associated with traveling to and using outpatient labs.

Gentag's skin patch sensors typically consist of printable chemical strips and near field communications (NFC) chips. The chemical strips can test and measure parameters such as body temperature, skin moisture, and (with the aid of microneedles) blood glucose. NFC makes collecting the results as simple as a waving a mobile phone over the skin patch. (NFC sensors don't require batteries because...

MaintenanceNet, Panasonic Team for Contract Visibility

February 26th, 2013
MaintenanceNet, Inc. today announced it has implemented a comprehensive, cloud-based service contract management platform for Panasonic System Communications Company of North America, which is the primary B2B technology solutions division of Panasonic Corporation of North America, the principal North American subsidiary of Panasonic Corporation.

Panasonic, a leader in delivering technology solutions for government, enterprise, SMB (small to midsize business) and many other vertical markets, utilizes a channel-based route to market in which products are offered to end users through reseller partners, who in turn order via authorized distribution partners. The Panasonic Services Portal, currently being rolled out to its distribution partners across North America, acts as a sales lead generator and provides a centralized online location from which sales agents can quickly and easily view their customers' warranty purchases and track expiring service contracts.

Powered by MaintenanceNet, the portal is offered free of charge and currently supports four main product categories including computers and tablets (including Toughbook® mobile computers), professional displays (including plasma, LCD and LED), projectors and video surveillance.

A key component of MaintenanceNet's offering to Panasonic is the automated delivery of service entitlement certificates to end customers. These certificates are generated for the warranty services purchased by customers in association with the thousands of products that Panasonic sells each month. By automating the back office process of capturing the entitlement data, and issuing the entitlement certificates to customers as proof of the services that they purchased, MaintenanceNet streamlines a once time-consuming administrative task.

The recent enhancement to the Services Portal is just one example of how Panasonic is committed to providing greater support to its channel partners.

"With MaintenanceNet, we have gained an efficient, 'no-touch' approach to addressing the thousands upon thousands of entitlement certificates that must...

Nimbus Flash Memory Accelerates Oracle Databases

January 14th, 2013
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Jan. 14, 2013 -- Nimbus Data Systems, Inc., the leader in Sustainable Storage(R), today announced two significant customer wins in business-critical Oracle database environments. Yes Energy, a top provider of analytics support solutions for power markets, and Lasso Data Systems, a leading developer of CRM software for the real estate market, selected the award-winning S-Class flash memory arrays to eliminate tuning and performance challenges presented by their previous infrastructures. After replacing their existing hybrid solutions and high-end disk arrays with Nimbus Data's S-Class all-flash storage system, Yes Energy and Lasso CRM achieved up to a 7x improvement in database performance while decreasing data center power, space and cooling costs.

With PCIe flash cards and conventional hard drive-based storage arrays, Yes Energy faced an unwelcome compromise: while performance from PCIe flash was fast, capacity and high availability was lacking. Meanwhile, the disk array offered capacity and high availability, but unacceptably slow performance. Yes Energy found the ideal solution with Nimbus Data: an all-flash storage platform with even better performance than the hybrid arrangement of local PCIe flash and a disk-based SAN, plus large capacity and complete high availability to meet their growing needs. After implementing the Nimbus all-flash solution and comparing the results of identical full production loads against the existing PCIe flash and disk array solution, Yes Energy experienced up to 7x faster response times with the Nimbus, debunking the commonly-held belief that PCIe flash cards are faster than external all-flash storage systems.

"As a provider of split-second access to real-time data streams and efficient historical analysis, Yes Energy requires systems that can provide low-latency IO that enable us to write and read data as fast as possible," said Santhan Shanmugaratnam, Systems Architect of Yes Energy. "PCIe flash presented some problems and risks for us including limited scalability,...
