Game Night Just got a Little More Interesting!

*Please note that Etelesolv changed its company name to Cimpl in 2016. Technology is constantly evolving and the level of connectivity enabled by mobile applications is becoming more all-permeating each and every day. The ability to bring individuals to places they’ve never been or show them sights they’ve never imagined seeing is one such technological capacity whose increasing reach continues to impress. A powerful example would be how technology has changed the way we watch hockey.   On the hockey season’s opening night last week, 55,000 hockey fans tuned in via livestream (via one single platform); a cumulative total of 1.9 million minutes of hockey gameplay was watched this way. Three quarters of the viewers watched this stream in more traditional format – from their homes. Meanwhile, the remaining quarter streamed the game using their tablets and mobile phones. The average amount of time that was viewed per fan totaled 51 minutes. That’s a huge block of time given how quickly people tune out of other programming.

Fun Friday Post: A Different Smartwatch From an Actual Watchmaker!

on September 19, 2014 7:00 AM By | Henry Cheang | 0 Comments | News Cost Transparency Data Mobile Device Management (MDM)
For those of you unfamiliar with the term, techopedia defines a smartwatch as “a wearable computing device marketed as more than a cell phone. With a glance, it gives atomic clock accuracy and allows you to read your text messages in a device that is always at hand (or, dare I say, on hand).” It is a watch after all! According to NextMarket Insights, the smartwatch market is expected to reach shipments of around 15 million units in 2014 and surpass 373 million units by 2020. Basically, smartwatches are predicted to explode into the tech scene and become an essential gadget within the coming years. This means that there is a great opportunity for companies to profit off the industry’s growth in the immediate future. These numbers include both companion smartwatches (i.e., functions as a complimentary peripheral to another device) and standalone smartwatches (i.e., comes equipped with full communication and calling capabilities).
