Better Size S.W.A.G. for Children's Clothing with Pint Size from Crazed Kitty Software

Pint Size's growth predictions make choosing the right size for children's clothes simpler and easier

REDLANDS, Calif., Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Crazed Kitty Software's newest iOS app, Pint Size, enables consumers to buy clothes with the knowledge of when and how long their child may fit a particular size, allowing the consumer to take advantage of today's end-of-season sales on clothes in the size their child is most likely to need at the start of the next season. Pint Size harnesses the science of pediatric growth curves to identify current and future children's clothing sizes for 44 major U.S. clothing brands. Pint Size provides better size S.W.A.G.

Pint Size translates the current height and weight of a child into a growth curve that can predict future height and weight values up to age 20 using Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) data and formulas. These predictions are turned into sizes for any of the 44 clothing brands Pint Size currently includes, enabling a more consistent and reliable clothes fit for the child. These predications create the opportunity take advantage of the significant savings that retailers give when clothing seasons come to an end. Growth measurements can be entered in U.S., U.K., or Metric units, enabling consumers worldwide to use Pint Size when traveling to the U.S. to determine the correct U.S. size for their children. Buying children's clothes is often a shared activity so Pint Size supports sharing this information via email, text, or Facebook. And parents enjoy telling the story of their children growing up, so Pint Size has included a photo album with a slide show to display all those photos capturing the child's growth history.

 "I love this app, and have already found it changing the way I shop - giving me the freedom to try new brands, and a convenient way to always have the information I need with me so that I can grab a great deal when I see one, whether it's for right now, next season, or even next year," says Cheryl Cobb, originator of the app concept. "Exploring the implications of what Cheryl wanted led us to discover that no one had connected the power of growth charts with the opportunity to get great deals on children's clothing by buying ahead of time," said Rob Lee, founder of Crazed Kitty Software. "Whether it is taking advantage of clothing sales, tripping across a great find at a consignment or thrift shop, or being an international traveler, knowing the right size before you buy gives you more control over your clothing budget. And this is especially true for our youngest children, where their rapid growth often means an item of clothing could be used by multiple children before it is worn out."

In this initial release Pint Size supports multiple families, giving grandparents, aunts, and uncles, and extended family to keep track of the children in their lives. This enables gift buying without the need to call for current sizes, or locating another child who is or soon will be ready for the clothes your child is retiring. And sharing this information is easy; a child's sizes in a favorite brand can be distributed via email, text, or Facebook. International travelers coming to the USA can use Pint Size to locate U.S. clothing sizes, giving them a greater confidence that their clothing purchase will fit when they return home. The initial clothing brand database will be expanded not only with more regional and local brands, but also internationally in the coming months, with automatic updates delivered to the app when they become available. Pint Size will improve the process of anticipating children's growth and responding to the changing clothing demands that results.

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...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
