New iCalcTM Bluetooth® Calculator Keypad Magnetically Aligns with the Apple® Wireless Keyboard

SMK-Link Electronics Corporation, a subsidiary of SMK Electronics, one of the largest manufacturers of OEM remote controls in the world, today announced that it will launch the new iCalc Bluetooth Calculator Keypad at Macworld/iWorld 2013, January 31st through February 2nd, Booth #1004.

Matching the look and feel of Apple keyboards, SMK-Link’s new iCalc Bluetooth Calculator Keypad magnetically aligns with the Apple Wireless Keyboard to add a dedicated numeric keypad to the iMac® and other computers originally supplied with Apple’s reduced-size keyboard. iCalc, which wirelessly connects to any Bluetooth-enabled OS X® or Windows® computer, operates selectively in either numeric keypad or calculator mode.

“If you’ve purchased an Apple computer over the past several years, chances are you don’t have a dedicated keypad on your keyboard,” states John Blair, General Manager of Branded Products for SMK-Link. “While Apple’s reduced-footprint Wireless Keyboard is designed for casual use, a dedicated keypad is essential for data entry into spreadsheets, accounting programs and other numeric applications. Our new iCalc, which pairs magnetically to the Apple Wireless Keyboard, can be used as an integrated keyboard keypad, or as a stand-alone keypad/calculator with Mac® and PC laptops.”

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
