At 2013 CES, BuQu Tech Offers First Showcase of Magnetyze™ Charging Systems for Samsung Galaxy S® III and iPhone 5

2013 International CES promises to be magnetic.

At next month’s Las Vegas extravaganza, Magnetyze™ by BuQu Tech (www.BuQuTech/Magnetyze.com) will be in all the right places – on display at the company’s MGM Grand suite, at the ShowStoppers press event -- January 8, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Wynn Hotel/Lafite Ballroom – and at CES Unveiled: The Official Press Event of the International CES, from 4-7 p.m. on January 6 in the South Seas Ballroom C at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. BuQu Tech is a recently-formed subsidiary of Battery-Biz® Inc., the leading U.S.-based manufacturer and distributor of consumer electronic power accessories.

Magnetyze by BuQu Tech applies patent-pending magnetics technology to keep iPhone and Android smartphones charged, synchronized and ready to “grab and go.” The high performance Magnetyze platform eliminates multiple cords, clumsy cradles and the need for new charging accessories with every smartphone upgrade.

Magnetyze is the first charging platform to enable Android and iPhone users to share a charger. When it’s time to upgrade to a new smartphone, only the Magnetyze protective cover or back plate needs to be replaced. The desk stand, magnetic charging cable and other Magnetyze-branded accessories will continue to work with any available Magnetyze smartphone case – Android or Apple.

On display at CES for the very first time:

  • Magnetyze Magnetic Charging System for Samsung Galaxy S® III. In its first bundles for the Android market, BuQu Tech is offering two packages. The first, the Magnetyze Magnetic Charging System With Replacement Back Plate, is available for $59.99. Designed for Samsung Galaxy S III users who prefer a charge-only option, this configuration replaces the phone’s original rear cover with a back plate that offers seamless attachment to any Magnetyze charging stand. The back plate comes in two popular colors – gloss white or metallic blue – and includes a Magnetyze Desk Stand and magnetic cable. The second – the Magnetyze Magnetic Charging System With Protective Case – sells for $69.99. This option offers Samsung Galaxy S III users the ability to both charge and sync their data and protects their phone against daily hazards with a sleek, ultra-slim and light protective cover and polycarbonate bumper that fits over the existing Samsung phone with the original back cover in place. The protective case is available in gloss white or gloss black to complement a wide range of Samsung phones and comes with a Magnetyze Desk Stand and magnetic cable for easy charging and data sync.
  • Magnetyze Magnetic Charging System for iPhone 5. BuQuTech will preview its Magnetyze bundle for Apple’s latest smartphone, which will go on sale in early Q2. Tailored to the iPhone 5’s larger form factor and new Lightning connector, the iPhone 5 bundle contains the Magnetyze protective case, desk stand and magnetic charging and data sync cable. As with the iPhone 4/4S, users simply slide the iPhone 5 into the lightweight Magnetyze protective case and attach the polycarbonate bumper over their smartphone. Magnets integrated into both the case and desk stand enable seamless attachment and simultaneous charging and data synchronization. Through the magic of magnetics, users can swivel their Magnetyze-enabled iPhone 360 degrees for both vertical and horizontal use – without detaching the phone from the stand or disrupting charging or synchronization.
  • Magnetyze Extended Battery Magnetic Charging System for the iPhone 4/4S. For iPhone users wary of seeing just a sliver of white in that battery meter in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, BuQu Tech will showcase the newest way to double smartphone runtime. Priced at $89.99, the system consists of a protective case that includes a built-in extended lithium-ion battery, shielding the iPhone 4/4S from daily hazards, while tackling that all-too-common hazard of running out of juice. Sleek, slim and light with elegant soft-touch finish, the Magnetyze Extended Battery Magnetic Charging System adds up to 40 hours to the iPhone’s battery life, 10 hours for video and movies and 7 hours of talk time or web browsing.
  • In other CES news: BuQu Tech has been named an International CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for its Magnetyze Magnetic Charging System. The Magnetyze system will be recognized at CES Unveiled: The Official Press Event of 2013 International CES, from 4-7 p.m. on Sunday, January 6 in the South Seas Ballroom C at the Mandalay Bay. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 29 product categories.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

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.
As we approach the next @ThingsExpo, to be held June 9-11 at the Javits Center in New York, my thoughts naturally turn to the Internet of Things. The IoT is a leviathan—in the best possible sense of the term—that will sweep up most everything in the ocean of data and technology being created today and tomorrow. But rather than try to grasp all of its possible uses, for today I'm looking at “just” the Industrial Internet part. I just read a long paper co-authored by Tim Berners-Lee about the possibility of describing a “web science,” that is, discipline that combines the study involved ...
