It’s been a long time coming but PR Newswire reports that Huawei, the fast-growing Chinese tech multinational, will today make available the world’s first enterprise-level 802.11ac access point.
The next generation wireless standard offers faster “throughput”, allowing wifi users for the first time to stream high definition videos and access other high bandwidth services such as cloud desktop access.
Kevin Secino of HP Mobile Product Marketing writes on his blog that the upgrade will offer “superhero-like” speed: “Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive….Well you could say that the 802.11ac standard is like that fictional superhero”.
In a more traditional field, this month sees the publication of the first issue of OPULENT, the magazine of the Women’s Luxury Guild. OPULENT, a luxury magazine targeting female executives, will be available only to members.
The Guild, launched in August, is an international organization designed to redress the underrepresentation of women in luxury industry boardrooms. It will run programs and provide incentives to luxury companies to promote the integration of women into the higher levels of company management. The Guild will be chaired by Laura Hinds, President of Platinum Envisions Marketing & Public Relations.
With the growth of online user forums and review websites such as Trip Advisor, the Internet creates new reputational risks for businesses. Few websites, however, have the potential to do greater damage to a business than, an online gallery publishing thousands of mugshots of members of the public sourced from public records.
The mugshots, being part of the public record, are not considered libelous, leaving few legal avenues to those who wish to have their photo taken down from the site. For those who do not wish to pay the $245 “fee” charged for the removal of photos,, a Denver-based firm specialised in “online crisis management”, has just announced a solution.
PR Newsire reported yesterday that will launch a new service guaranteeing to remove the photograph from within 24 hours for a small fee. Links to the photograph used by search engines are also broken, removing all online traces of the mugshot.
"This is a complete solution that allows our clients to relax and know that all copies of the photographs are gone and all of the damage they have endured has been amended, once and for all," a company representative said.
