DoMark International Inc. (OTCBB: DOMK) (the "Company" or "DoMark"), a leader in infrared and solar charging systems for Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) devices, is pleased to provide an update and review of the Company’s operations since the installment of a new management team in June.
New Vision Statement
DoMark is a dedicated sales/marketing management company that invests in the distribution rights of new, game changing products, bringing them to the mass market. Our products are patented or patent pending and address a mass customer market.
Infrared/Solar Charger Case for the Apple iPhone & iPad. All old legacy products have been replaced with new and improved versions which will put us well ahead of our competitors. New products incorporate patent pending, state of the art infrared and solar technology for use with all new Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPad and iPhone products. Our cases are light weight and come in a sleek design with two back up lithium batteries giving maximum battery life support. Price points are very realistic to maximize sales with Apple’s large global customer base. A version for the Samsung (SMSN:LI) Galaxy 3 phones is being planned for the new year.
Barefoot Science Shoe Insoles. Our sports division, Musclefoot Inc., entered into a distribution agreement for North America, which will capture the massive market potential of this revolutionary product. This product is patented, FDA approved and proven to improve the problems associated with tired sore feet, flat feet, corns, bunions, planar fasciitis, calluses, and patients with diabetes. The 'Active' version of the product improves sports performance. Prices for the product line are in line with other insole products, and well below prices for custom orthotics that just brace the foot. We are looking forward to opening up other global markets in the new year.
We have moved to strategically maximize efficiencies and minimize overheads including outsourcing our warehousing to Amazon (AMZN:US) Fulfillment and our importing and customer product delivery to U.P.S (UPS:NYE). Our call centre has also been outsourced to Intelligence office.
- The company has completely redesigned our websites and tested their effectiveness.
- We have hired social media specialist R.B.L Communication to manage all our Facebook (FB:US), Twitter, and Youtube activity.
- We have successfully developed and tested our Google (GOOG:US) adworks strategy.
- We have produced and run over a month our television campaign adds which are ready to be roled out across North America.
- We hired media ad agency, Watson Media, to handle all our media buying and planning.
- We also retained a retail sales specialist agency to develop and manage our retail sales.
- A globally respected affiliate marketing expert has also been hired to develop and manage these programs.
- Successfully negotiated the endorsements for our products by sports celebrities Will Claye, Nick Symmonds and Sean Penna to promote our products. This is especially important for our Barefoot Science products with the tremendous potential for them to be licensed by a large international sports and military footwear manufacturers.
Sales have been steady over the past six months and we are confident with the right product mix, at the right right price points and with the right marketing strategy to do well in 2013.
The Company has hired a new C.F.O., James Kerr, to oversee the implementation of stringent financial controls including the renegotiation of our debt position. Mr. Kerr brings a wealth of experience to the Company and will ensure our financial integrity moving forward.
I am very happy with the progress made in a relatively short period of time that will allow us to maximize sales and shareholder value in 2013. I wish all our shareholders and customers a great holiday season and prosperous new year.
Chief Executive Officer

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
