Internet Giant Google Now Enters Fashion Market

Posted under Lifestyle,Technology by Ashley Genet on Thursday 18 November 2010 at 4:52 pm

As if Google didn’t already have enough to party about, their party continues. On Wednesday night technology giant celebrated their newest market entry, This site will establish their presence in the high fashion world online.

Munjal Shah of Google had the following to say about the entry and the site launch - “Fashion is overwhelming, and so what most people want when they shop is a curated experience, So we said, celebrities, designers and others, ‘come in.’ They actually curate items for you to come in and buy, so it’s a virtual boutique they set up. And in addition to that, they actually teach what their taste is like. We literally used some of the key strengths of Google – the ability to build artificial intelligent system that can understand and learn. One example is we built a system to automatically recommend things to complete a look.”

The technology is amazing, it allows for certain things like a simple pair of shoes to be entered into the search form. Based on your entry will then provide you with not only the matching necklaces, bracelets, jewelry but even things like diaper bags and other accessories to match the style. It will also direct you to where you can purchase these items online.

A social media factor of the site also exists, which currently only has items for women, as it also allows you to follow people whose trend you admire to get updates on what they’re buying and looking at similar to following their updates on social networking sites like Twitter.

What some in the fashion industry said they like in particular about the site is that it’s a good starting off point for anyone – from women who think they’re ready to produce their own runway show to those who can’t even choose a t-shirt to go with a pair of jeans.

Google says Boutiques will eventually cater to men, as well.

For those who try it and like it enough to want the experience everywhere, there’s also a Boutiques iPad app.

LSI Corporation Expands Market Becoming Part Of World Supercomputer

Posted under Technology by Jason Genet on Wednesday 17 November 2010 at 4:13 pm

LSI Corporation announced that they have implemented the LSI™ Engenio® storage system technology into the world’s sixth fastest supercomputer which is possessed by the French Atomic Energy Commission in their Military Applications Division. The computer processes at an astonishing 1.25 petaflops, which to many normal, everyday PC users is something not even fathomable. The installation of this technology is a major monument for LSI Corporation and another building block in their partnership between the French Atomic Energy Commission and LSI/Bull (Bull is a leader in high-performance computing throughout the European Union.) The Atomic Energy Commission is a government-funded technology organization that has initiated colloborative programs with various technological industry leaders since 2008.

These relationships and the government funding they provide are extremely beneficial for companies like Bull and LSI. The partnership was established to help extend the capacity and capabilities of the Tera 100 Supercomputing Center, which as mentioned previously is the 6th largest supercomputer in the world.

“Supercomputing solutions are essential technology that help to accelerate scientific research by supporting the requirements of the world’s most demanding application environments,” said Jacques-Charles Lafoucriere, Chef de Service, CEA/DAM. “By offering a balance between processing power, data throughput and fault tolerance, the LSI storage system technology has enabled us to support the widest possible range of computer simulation applications running at the Tera 100 supercomputing center.”

The Tera 100 storage cluster combines bullx S Series servers and LSI Engenio storage technology to deliver 200GB/s bandwidth to the CEA IT center’s 15 petabyte clustered infrastructure running the Lustre™ file system.

“LSI is proud to be providing the data storage backbone of one of the world’s leading supercomputing centers,” said Steve Hochberg, senior director, HPC segment, LSI. “This is a testament to the exceptional performance and reliability of LSI storage system technology, and we’re honored to play an integral role in the critical scientific research conducted at this premier government facility.”

With over 200 petabytes deployed in HPC environments and more than 500,000 systems shipped across a wide range of workloads and market segments, LSI Engenio storage systems are helping to accelerate scientific research and innovation for many of the world’s largest government and university-based research centers.

Brossmans Offer Pre-Holiday Special On Video Training

Posted under Technology by Jason Genet on Friday 15 October 2010 at 7:06 am

– To mark Steve Brossman’s birthday, which coincides with December 25th, this couple has taken a huge slice off the cost of their 10 module program.

The Brossmans have proven time and again that successful online businesses today need to use video to engage their clients.  They also acknowledge that the reason more businesses do not use video is because they perceive it to be difficult to create and implement.

It is this fear of the unknown that they have tackled in their 10-Module FastVideoResults Course.  By combining Pam’s background in Corporate Communications, Steve’s long history as a TV presenter and producer, and their internet marketing expertise, they are perfectly positioned to guide, coach and mentor their students to successful marketing via the medium of video.

FastVideoResults is the only course of its kind in the world today, and for that reason alone it has made its way onto the must-have list for all businesses with an online presence.

Learning how to use video in your product launches, sales messages, website welcomes and tutorials are invaluable skills for an organization or marketer to possess, but discovering how to leverage them to make sales is priceless.

To celebrate Steve’s birthday, the Brossmans have announced a very special time-sensitive offer - it ends as Winter does - for their FastVideoResults course.

Corbis Introduces New Contributor Website

Posted under Technology by Jason Genet on Tuesday 5 October 2010 at 6:23 am

– NEW YORK (October 5, 2010)

Corbis Images , a leading visual media provider for the creative community, today announced the launch of the new Corbis Contributor Gateway,  a website specifically created for Corbis contributors to make it easier than ever for them to work with Corbis. The announcement was made today at a Corbis Artist Forum in New York City attended by dozens of top photographers.

“This is the start of a new era in how we communicate and interact with our contributors,” said Don Wieshlow, Senior Vice President, Products. “Contributors will now have 24/7 access to Corbis and a host of online tools that will help them have a competitive edge in today’s fast paced digital world.”

Contributors will have their own personal online profile where they can use automated upload tools to easily submit and manage their work, including providing keyword suggestions and model releases where applicable.  They will have access to the latest information and Creative Research from Corbis, and be able to view their royalty statements. Corbis also plans to add community features soon so contributors can more easily engage with each other and share information.

Contributors that sign up for the new website will be asked to agree to the new Corbis Online Agreement, a new standard Corbis agreement with contributors moving forward.  The new Online Agreement includes enhancements designed to provide more flexibility and transparency in line with the practices of doing business in the internet age.

One noteworthy enhancement to the Online Agreement is eliminating the “foreign office fee,” which currently takes a percentage of the royalties paid to contributors on sales made outside of their designated home country. Under the new agreement, contributors will be paid a uniform percentage of royalties from sales of their work, regardless of where in the world it is sold. While their agreement royalty rate may be adjusted slightly to compensate, their effective royalty rate the royalties they actually earn from sales globally will increase for nearly all contributors.  This significantly simplifies how Corbis calculates royalties and gives increased transparency to Corbis contributors.

Contributors using the Gateway will also have the option to submit work on an exclusive, co-exclusive or non-exclusive basis, enhancing the flexibility and control contributors have over how they distribute and market their work.

Existing Corbis contributors will be invited to begin using the Gateway in phases as their current contracts come up for renewal. For more information on Corbis’ new Contributor Gateway, view the “Introduction to the Corbis Contributor Gateway” video here.
