Newly Redesigned Pop Century Rooms Officially Unveiled

first_imgShare This!Today, in a tweet that was provided by @WDWToday is seemingly getting buried by the news that a chunk of the monorail appears to have flown off and the monorail is being evacuated, we were able to see officially what the new redesign of the Pop Century rooms are looking like.Groovy! The resort rooms at Disney’s #PopCentury Resort are starting to pop with updates in color and comfort! pic.twitter.com/3aEsZbISWF— WDW Today (@WDWToday) June 16, 2017 As you can see, the entirety of the room has been upgraded. While there are still two beds, one of the beds easily converts to a table, much like they do at Disney’s Art of Animation’s family suites. Also gone is the carpet, instead opting for what appears to be some sort of wood flooring.The new rooms still include a refrigerator, but they also have a one cup coffee maker now! Also, there appears to be a lot of plugs and USB ports.The color palette of the room is also a bit warmer. I particularly like the whites and reds. Oh and I love the Mickey Mouse artwork. And how cute is the artwork of Pluto sleeping in the fold down bed? Overall, the rooms have a very clean aesthetic.The TV is now mounted on the wall and there appears to be a bit more storage, both in the bedroom, as well as the bathroom. Speaking of the bathroom, there is a newly updated and modern sink. They have also added a makeup mirror and I will certainly appreciate the brighter bathroom when I’m getting ready.It also appears that the bathroom proper has been brightened up. The bathroom appears to have a tub with actual glass shower doors now.I can’t wait to experience these new Disney’s Pop Century Resort rooms myself! While the work is currently being done at the resort, there’s no guarantee that you will end up with a newly remodeled room. If it’s important to you to have a newly refurbished room, my suggestion would be to ask at check-in. Again, it won’t be guaranteed, but you might be able to experience one of these new rooms!SaveSavelast_img read more

Internet of Things: Businesses Invest Heavily in Machine To Machine (M2M) Communication

first_imgThe Internet of Things (IoT) encompasses a broad set of technologies.  One facet of IoT is Machine to Machine (M2M), a technology that allows machines to connect to and to exchange data among themselves.  A recent Vodafone survey of M2M technology found that 27 percent of businesses globally have started to use some type of M2M technology to improve their businesses.Much of the data communicated by machines is done via cellular services.  Examples of M2M devices include meters, home security devices, connected cars, healthcare monitors  and vending machines.  More recent examples of how and where M2M is being deployed are for digital signage, remote patient monitoring and contactless payments.  Healthcare, utilities and automotive, transportation, logistics, public safety, retail, and consumer electronics industries are all using M2M.Other findings of the Vodafone M2M report include:81 percent of businesses using M2M expect to increase their investment59 percent of businesses using M2M report a significant return on investment83 percent of businesses see M2M as a source of competitive advantage A separate report by Market Research Store found that just one segment, the Health M2M market, is expected to grow at an annual rate of 33 percent over the next five years.Michele Mackenzie, principal analyst at Analsys Mason, said that “there are compelling examples of cost savings.  Positive impacts on customer retention and the ability to unlock new revenue streams are also cited as tangible benefits that continue to drive investment in M2M.”Cellular M2M connectivity services that are benefiting from this trend to M2M include AT&T, China Telecom, EE, KT, Sprint, Verizon and Vodafone.last_img read more

Dating Site Buys Daily Deals Service – 25% Off Awkward First Dates?

first_imgRelated Posts In a bold first move into social commerce and daily deals FriendFinder Networks, which runs a series of dating sites, has purchased the company behind the daily deals site JigoCity. This is another big player diving into the daily deals scrum, attempting to pair the popularity of social commerce with an unrelated core business. But there’s no word on how FriendFinder will use JigoCity. Ideally, they could use it to pair up partners with daily deal date coupons. And therein lies an interesting proposition for daily deals. This brings a social encounter to the daily deals structure that was not there before: romance marketing. A man takes a woman on a date, introduces her to a new venue for entertainment, tells her that this came together through a daily deal. She may downgrade him a couple reputation points in her mind, but perhaps she becomes another user of the daily deal strategy. Impressing your date with novelty and a steeply discounted offering. JigoCity is one of the few social commerce companies operating in more than five countries and plans to expand into as many as four additional countries by year’s end. The company generated revenue of approximately $600,000 in July and approximately $1.1 million in August and has rapidly grown its user base to over 1 million members. Marc Bell, CEO of FriendFinder Networks Inc. says the acquisition gives the company ways to monetize foreign markets, specifically the fast-growing China and the Asia-Pacific regions. The deal, done in cash and Friend Finder shares, values JigoCity at approximately $65 million.
