XMLStarlet Command Line XML Toolkit: News RFID and Internet of Things rsync For secure transfer, rsync can use SSH to encrypt data during the transfer using the "-e ssh" option.

What's this about 'showrooming'? | Localism! | A Blog by Clique Showrooming is the practice of examining merchandise in a traditional brick and mortar retail store without purchasing it, but then shopping online to find a lower price for the same item. Online stores often offer lower prices than brick and mortar stores because they do not have the same overhead cost. Here are some ways to reverse “showrooming” by giving savvy consumers the tools and incentives to research online, then buy local: 1. By offering a unique selection of products that caters directly to the niche of customers that patronize your store, you are able to draw consumers in not only for the item they are seeking but to discover what else might be available in your interest range. By having a points or loyalty system, the more dollars you spend the deeper and more frequent the discounts get. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Now get out there and shop!

What are the basics for business development for a digital/ad agency Tides Are Changing for Consumer Electronics In 2012, the lines between the digital and physical world blurred like never before, and we saw how technology transformed from a standalone asset to a supplement developed to enhance the consumer experience. We watched as stores went from developing mobile web apps to producing fully integrated digital tools to help shoppers plan their shopping strategy in advance, keeping consumers connected before, during and after their shopping experience. The annual technology mecca that is CES focuses on the technology, electronics and gadgets that merely represent capability. That capability is then applied to consumers’ wants and needs, which is where innovation truly begins. At this year’s CES, we saw accelerated developments in some of the arenas that have been popular in the last few years, such as Smart TVs, mobile technology, automotive technology and the cloud. These products continue to be of interest to the consumer. By Donald Chesnut (@D_Chesnut).
Study: In-store technology critical for growth, helping customer relationships | Merchandising Matters | Retail Localization | RBM Technologies Seventy percent of retailers are empowering their employees with technology-enabled touch points to help their businesses to differentiate and evolve, according to a recent RSR Research report cosponsored by HP. Courtesy of ChainStoreAge.com Retail Store of the Future Palo Alto, Calif. — Seventy percent of retailers are empowering their employees with technology-enabled touch points to help their businesses to differentiate and evolve, according to a recent RSR Research report cosponsored by HP. The study finds that by arming their associates with a range of technologies that provide relevant and timely information — such as digital signage, self-service kiosks, mobile devices and advanced point-of-sale systems — retailers can increase productivity and boost multichannel selling opportunities.

A $1 Billion Project To Remake The Disney World Experience, Using RFID I’ll never forget going to Disney World as a child. As we stood in line to enter the park, a simple cash register--one like I’d see at the local donut shop or gas station--rang up a bill close to $1,000. While my parents were no doubt prepped for the sticker shock--or just very cool about the whole thing--I felt a blow of guilt right in my gut. I was just a kid, but I knew that was a whole lot of money being spent just for me to feel like a kid. It’s just one of many reasons that Disney’s MagicBands are a great idea. A family of four can put MagicBands on after registering for the cloud-based service, then instead of digging through cash or (the unmaxed) credit cards, they can use their wrists to enter the park, buy lunch, and even unlock their hotel room. But the cashflow aspect is only one aspect of Disney’s new service. At the same time, MagicBands enable a deeper level of data collection for Disney. See more here or at The New York Times.
