With nearly half a million downloads, iRecycle is already the premiere application for local disposal information. Earth911's mobile application is based on Earth911's one-of-a-kind recycling directory, with over 1.5 million local recycling and proper disposal opportunities for 350 different materials in every U.S. ZIP code. Users input a ZIP code, address, city or their current location and a material to find the most convenient solution for disposal.

"iRecycle is a great example of how Earth911 is moving recycling forward. With nearly half a million downloads already, we're headed for an even more explosive release with this new version," said Corey Lambrecht, President of Earth911. "We're leading the charge to get consumer products recycled by using our data - the best single resource available to make this a reality."

The new version of iRecycle features:

  • iRecycle iOS v2.5.1 - optimized for iPhone 5, Retina iPad, and iOS 6
  • iRecycle Android v1.5 - optimized for Android devices. Support for many screen resolutions, including tablets
  • iRecycle now has a single focus: finding recycling centers
  • Vibrant color display to help distinguish categories
  • Social sharing of recycling listings is even easier with Facebook, Twitter, SMS or email

"If there's one simple way of finding out where you're going to dump all of your recyclable materials in the United States, it's the iRecycle app," said reviewer Chris Burns, head editor of SlashGear, noting its "amazingly simple-to-use interface."

"Knowing what to recycle and where to recycle it can be a challenge but the iRecycle app makes it easy and intuitive," said Marci VerBrugge-Rhind, spokesperson for Sprint. "We're excited to see that Earth911 continues to refine this utility and provides an even better experience for our customers who are looking for recycling information on their wireless device, especially our customers who are using the Sprint Green ID Pack that enables several apps for greener living like iRecycle."

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...

IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, will discuss the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. The presentation will also discuss how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics to discuss are barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold.
