Shred Cube Launches First-Ever USB Drag-and-Drop File Shredding Device

The Shred Cube, the first product of its kind ever to hit the market officially launched on March 1st, 2020, bringing in a new frontier of fast, reliable, secure and permanent digital file deletion.

The key features of the Shred Cube include an easy to use drag-and-drop or attach interface, PC and Mac compatibility, and the peace of mind that your unwanted documents and files are actually gone with no trace left behind. The compact hand held “cube” weighs in at a feathery 2.3oz and comes in at a one-time cost of 9.99. With rigid dimensions of 1 x 1 x 1inches, the tiny profile makes it easy to transport and use across multiple devices.

“Our mission is to bring the simplicity of an office paper shredder to the world of digital files, all in a simple plug-and-play USB device.”

-Nancie Williams, Co-Founder

Traditional file deletion software and programs often make computers even more vulnerable to common cyber threats, like malware, ransomware, and trojans by using downloadable software. Unless a person is downloading a well-known, highly-vetted file remover over the internet, there’s no way of knowing what they’re potentially exposing their computer or network to. There is always a degree of risk, even with the most noteworthy file removal programs.

The Shred Cube promises what other file removers simply cannot. Since the Shred Cube is an external device, users can be confident that no additional files or logs will be added to their system that could potentially compromise the machine’s or network’s security. Being wholly external, the Shred Cube permanently deletes digital files, folders or bulk data without software needing to be downloaded. Even better is that Shred Cube does not save any of the user’s data to the cube itself and there is no trace of the cube being used on the device.

Because of its ability to quickly and securely remove sensitive data, the Shred Cube has a number of applications across multiple industries, including:


About Shred Cube

Founders Alex Stieb and Nancie Williams created the Shred Cube with privacy at the forefront, creating an easier way to permanently delete sensitive personal data, client information, or any other computer files from any device in an instant. Nancie’s background in the legal field combined with Alex’s background in industrial manufacturing and engineering was the perfect union when it came to offering the general public this incredible innovation in cybersecurity.

Appliance Repair 512 in Austin, TX Offers 10% Off Refrigerator Repairs for New Customers

A broken refrigerator can wreak havoc on any home. From staples such as milk and eggs to expensive cuts of meat, most people today keep their refrigerators well stocked. When the refrigerator stops working, it is important to fix it as soon as possible. For February 2020, highly respected Austin repair shop Appliance Repair 512 is offering 10% off refrigerator repairs for new customers. Simply mention this offer when scheduling an appointment.

Common Refrigerator Problems
Any working part in a refrigerator can go bad, but some problems are especially common. These include:

Frost Buildup
Improper Cooling
No Ice
Not Running at All
Odd Tastes
Strange Noises

Repair or Replace
Most refrigerator problems are relatively easy for an expert service technician to fix. However, if a particular refrigerator is nearing the end of its useful life and the needed repair is extensive, it may be better to replace the unit instead. As a rule of thumb, top-freezers are expected to last approximately 3 years, side-by-side models for 5 years, and bottom-freezers for 7 years. Still, many units last much longer, so it is worth having even an older model professionally inspected.

Appliance Repair 512 keeps its overhead costs low, passing on the savings to customers without compromising quality or customer service. The company’s friendly service technicians undergo factory training for all major appliances, and they are available for emergency service around the clock.

Star Refrigeration Install New Greener Plant for Primula Cheese

Star Refrigeration has helped a world class cheese spread manufacturer upgrade its refrigeration plant to comply with F-gas regulations. The company has overseen the replacement of two refrigeration plants serving Primula’s principal cheese store facility in Team Valley in Gateshead, near Newcastle.

As the UK and Europe continue to phase down harmful refrigerants in an attempt to slow global warming, plants across the UK require upgrading to remain compliant. Star successfully transitioned the plant from R422D – which will soon become untenable under new F-Gas Regulations – to the more future- proofed R513A. The two businesses have been in a successful partnership for over 15 years, and in 2008 Star had already converted the original R22 plants to enable operation with R422D refrigerant which extended the life of the plants by over 10 years.

From January 1st 2020, the EU will introduce a service ban on all refrigerants with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of over 2,500. Since R422D has a GWP of 2,729, it would have become problematic to Primula to continue running their cheese store. This, in conjunction with the age of the plant, prompted Primula to opt for a complete replacement of the two plants to achieve regulatory compliance, optimise efficiency and ensure its viability going forward.

Star replaced the plants with new equipment utilising a refrigerant with a far lower GWP. In this instance Star determined that R513A a has a comparatively low GWP of just 631, which is well below the 2,500 threshold and should ensure the plant remains viable in its current state for the foreseeable future.

The solution involved the supply and installation of two independent plants each comprising a single bespoke manufactured air-cooled condensing unit and four draw-through evaporators. The condensing units incorporate a single semi-hermetic reciprocating compressor mounted within a weatherproof housing and an air-cooled condenser with extended legs designed for vertical air throw.

Matt Cumming, Facilities Manager at Primula said, “Star’s commitment to ensuring our business is fully compliant with F-gas regulations and their willingness to share their expertise helped us install a commercially viable refrigeration solution which will have considerable benefits both in terms of environmental impact and efficiency. The brand new installation means we are well-placed to continue to serve the needs of our customers across the UK for years to come”.

One of the key challenges of the project was that all work had to be carried out within normal business hours, but had to focus on one plant at a time to ensure continuity of operation with no downtime was maintained. Star scheduled the projects to take place in the first quarter of 2019 to take advantage of low ambient temperatures and reduce the workload on the one operational plant while the other was being replaced.

Additionally, Star made every effort to provide a solution that increased Primula’s competitive advantage with the use of components that qualified for Enhanced Capital Allowance and could afford the customer tax breaks for its use of energy-efficient technology. The plant was designed with efficiency in mind and comprised energy saving technology such as electronic expansion valves, condenser EC fans and evaporator controllers equipped with skip-defrost functionality to avoid defrosting operation when unnecessary. It’s estimated that this functionality could help the company achieve savings of up to £6,000 per annum.

The successful supply and installation of the new plant has provided Primula with a reliable, energy-efficient solution which will save them money in the short-term and comply with international legislation in the medium to long term. Star’s Newcastle branch proximity to Primula’s site, at less than 10 miles away, allowed the project to run smoothly, on time and on budget. The branch’s seven qualified industrial refrigeration service engineers and two apprentices will ensure the plant is properly maintained for years to come whilst on hand to respond to any queries or concerns.

Sigora Solar Named 2019 Most Forward-Thinking Company in America by Solar Power World

With renewable energy expected to be the fastest growing source of U.S. electricity generation for at least the next two years, local solar installer Sigora Solar is humbled to be recognized by Solar Power World as the Most Forward-Thinking Company of 2019. This award celebrates solar installers devoted to making progress in energy and beyond for a more sustainable future. Sigora Solar also achieved a rank of #1 Solar Company in the state of Virginia and #30 among the top residential solar companies in the United States on the magazine's 2019 Top Solar Contractors list.

Sigora Solar was founded in 2011 and now boasts over 150 employees with operations in 13 states across the country. The company’s unique ‘Produce and Reduce’ package includes a complimentary energy efficiency audit, performed by a BPI Goldstar-certified team, that identifies the home’s inefficiencies. Customers then receive customized energy efficiency upgrades to maximize their home’s performance and energy savings, along with a Pearl Home Certification, documenting all the improvements. No money down, low interest financing options, and production guarantees make Sigora’s ‘Produce and Reduce’ package accessible and affordable to the masses and allow homeowners to experience immediate monthly savings.

Sigora further differentiates itself as a top company through its ‘One for One’ program running in rural Haiti. Through a collaboration with its sister company, Sigora Haiti and the non-profit Hummingbird Academy for Disaster Preparedness and Renewable Energies (HADPRE), Sigora provides free electricity to one home in Haiti for every residential installation performed in the U.S. For every commercial installation in the U.S., a Haitian clinic or school receives free electricity for 5 years. Through this partnership, 25,000 people, who previously had no access to electricity, now have 24/7 access to clean, reliable electricity. For the first time, these localities are booming and entrepreneurial activity continues to increase as people return to the region to start their own businesses.

As Sigora Solar CEO, Logan Landry, explains: “We are a humble family here at Sigora Solar, but that doesn’t take away from the immense pride each one of us has in our work. Not only are we empowering our customers, but we’re giving them the opportunity to also empower a family in Haiti by providing them with electricity.”

"Solar Power World enjoys assembling the Top Solar Contractors list each year, and our 2019 edition features hundreds of companies making big impacts in local energy markets," said Kelly Pickerel, editor in chief of Solar Power World. "Solar power is becoming competitive with traditional electricity sources in more markets, and cities and states are demanding more renewable energy options. It's a great time to be a solar installer, and we're happy to highlight the best installation companies in the country on our list."

The U.S. solar market is expected to see 14% growth in 2019, with over 12 GW of new solar power added to the grid this year — enough to power 2.28 million average American homes. This increase in installations is attributed to strong residential solar interest and a rush to get projects in before the 30% federal investment tax credit steps down to 26% next year.

New Sterilizable Endoscope Light Source SPARK PRO: Little Bodies Have Great Souls

The compact, easy-to-use and versatile SPARK PRO endoscope light sourc e is an autonomous device powered by one rechargeable battery. It takes about 2 hours to recharge it, and the operation time depends on the chosen light intensity. Light output may be changed from 10% to 100%. Based on the chosen output level the operation time on a single battery charge may be between 45 minutes and 3 hours. The light handle is fully IEC and RoHS compliant.

The small-size handheld design of the new SPARK PRO endoscope light handle makes standalone bulky light sources with electrical wires, light bulbs, and long, breakable fiber optic cables running from the main units to endoscopes obsolete. Instead, SPARK PRO offers compact size (103 mm long and 32 mm in diameter), a lightweight body (137g with the batteries included), and an extended lifetime. The batteries are good for around 500 recharge cycles before they need to be replaced, while high quality pure white LEDs are designed to work for up to 10 years.

A distinct feature of the new SPARK PRO endoscope light handle is its sterilizability. As a result, the light source is suitable for medical and veterinary use. Any standard medical grade disinfectant, for example, Sterrad, Sterris and Cidex OPA, is suitable for sterilizing the light source body which can be fully submerged in a sterilizing solution. 
The new SPARK PRO, designed and manufactured in the USA, fits most industrial and veterinary applications, and stands out among competition thanks to its versatility, smart and durable design, and cost efficiency.

Palm Air Welcomes Spring With Some Seasonality Tips And Special

The dedicated staff at Palm Air, always aim to provide their clients with cleaner, colder, more comfortable air. With that being said they are also aware that financial challenges can make this difficult to achieve for some of their customers. In light of this, since Spring is upon us, they’d like to encourage all their clients to make the most of the opportunities this season brings to replace their air conditioning units without breaking the bank.

Around this time of year, Palm Air’s customers can take advantage of some really good special offers from Carrier (of which Palm Air is an authorized dealer of their products). In fact, the special offers this time around appears to be some of the most aggressive offers we’ve seen in years! Spring is one of the best times to contact the experienced professionals at Palm Air for a replacement of any air conditioning unit. It’s a fact that in the Summer, the demand for AC maintenance and replacements is extremely high, which results in consumers paying more for those services. While the demand for air conditioning services in the Spring is considerably low and because of this, there are more incentives and special offers out there for everyone’s benefit.

Palm Air would like to highlight the fact that Carrier is kicking Spring off with rebates up to ,650 or up to 72 months 0% financing on qualifying Carrier Systems between March 18, 2019, and June 30, 2019. It’s key to remember that all rebate claims must be made by July 31, 2019, by 6pm CST. If you have an older unit that you suspect is about to go (generally a 10+-year-old unit is on its last legs)...don’t wait for that to happen this summer, when it probably will, due to the extra strain you will be putting on it in the hottest months of the year. Taking advantage of the 2019 Spring Cool Cash Rebates or the 0% APR program is a great way to exercise financial responsibility and save some money. In addition to the cool cash promotion, Palm Air clients can also save more by utilizing their in house promotions as well. These great deals simply won’t be offered during the peak summer months.

Palm Air would also like to highlight the fact that Carrier products are trusted in more homes than any other brand, and financing is no different. They have built a relationship with AFC First and Wells Fargo Bank which has allowed them the ability to offer a variety of flexible financing options for a new Carrier product or system. In the HVAC business seasonality plays a role and it can significantly affect your wallet if your timing is off. Beat the heat of summer by preparing in the spring!

So, how does this work? It’s important for homeowners to remember that only Carrier® systems or units purchased from participating dealers (authorized dealers….like Palm Air) during the sales period and installed by the end of the installation period are eligible for the Cool Cash promotions. You can contact Palm Air at 561-922-3199 if there are any questions. Don’t miss the chance to replace your air conditioning unit before the heat and expense associated with trying to replace a unit in the peak season/ summer arrives. Prepare this year and ensure that you stay cool and on budget this summer.

"The existing SV Series configurations with internal batteries are perfect for edge computing applications that require a minimal footprint and optimized runtimes. The new models without internal batteries give IT managers more options for extended runtimes," said Jose L. Medina, Tripp Lite's 3-Phase UPS Product Line Manager. "All the cabinet sizes and capacities are now available without internal batteries for extended-runtime applications, and the expanded SV Series UPS line offers maximum configuration and pricing flexibility for a full range of applications."

The SV Series is available with capacities from 20 kVA to 140 kVA. User-installable, hot-swappable 20 kVA power modules can increase capacity or provide N+1 redundancy for fault tolerance. All models provide true on-line, double-conversion power protection to deliver clean and reliable backup power. They are ideal for small and medium businesses, data centers, financial operations, healthcare facilities and government agencies with mission-critical equipment that requires high availability.

"A UPS system with this level of scalability and redundancy helps reduce the total cost of ownership," Medina said. "The IT manager needs only to focus on right-sizing for today's needs. As capacity and availability requirements increase, the UPS expands easily. This means a lower capital expenditure up front, with only incremental power module purchases required as capacity needs grow."

Key Features of Tripp Lite's SV Series: 

  • Modular, scalable design with hot-swappable power modules
  • Available without internal batteries for applications requiring extended runtimes
  • Available with internal batteries for applications requiring shorter runtimes and minimal footprint
  • N+1 redundancy for fault tolerance
  • Pre-installed WEBCARDLX network management card

Fyoosion Startup Launches Direct To Consumer (DTC) Business Model

Almost every company now has a presence on social media. If your company doesn’t have one, you are clearly in an ever decreasing minority.

At the same time, the power and reach of social media must be leveraged properly to get the best out of such engagements. It is a fact that while many companies use social technologies, just a few actually achieve the full potential benefit.

Engage With Your Audience More Effectively

To know about the full advantage of social technologies, you must know how to engage with the right audience in the right place. Social media engagement can be used to create more relevant and profitable relationships with customers. The reach of these services are immense and not having a presence on social media is akin to giving the race to your competitors on a platter.

Social media integration can easily increase productivity according to online marketing experts. You can increase staff efficiency by as much as 25 per cent through social media integration.

Social networks for staff members can make the workforce more dynamic and productive. It can also train them to work in an online social environment. Communicating through a social network with colleagues can provide the necessary experience for effective social media engagement and also helps you communicate better with customers.

Establish a Better Communication Platform with Business Partners

One of the least explored areas of social media integration is connecting with the network of suppliers, dealers and clients. Just a handful of companies have the technology to be entirely self-sufficient in communication systems. Social media can provide the ideal platform to communicate with other companies. It can help achieve high efficiency in business-to-business which goes way beyond with emails and calls. Social media integration such as Fyoosion can help establish cross-company private social networks.

Social media integration can be brought to any site with built-in comments feature. It can be used to initiate product reviews or add comment streams, post blogs and lots more.
