YesStyle Presents "aka DAN" Documentary Series Premiering Worldwide in March 2014

LOS ANGELES, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- YesStyle, the leading online Asian fashion retailer and owner and operator of retail website YesStyle.com, is proud to present "aka DAN", a documentary series starring musician Dan Matthews. Produced by Mayrok Media in association with Arirang TV, the 4-part series "aka DAN" follows Matthews, a Korean American adoptee, as he searches for and reunites with his biological Korean family, including his twin brother who he never knew existed. The series premieres on March 6, 2014 on multiple media platforms, both broadcast and online.

Dan Matthews says about "aka DAN": "The documentary deals with issues of identity, family and culture, so everyone can relate to this story." Also known by his stage name DANakaDAN, Matthews was adopted and raised in a small town in Southern California. "aka DAN" depicts Matthews as he researches his true heritage and finally embarks on a journey to South Korea. In each of the episodes, Matthews wears clothing available from YesStyle, some of which was delivered to South Korea during filming in 2013. Matthews also wore YesStyle clothing at the red carpet premiere of "aka DAN" in February 2014.

The YesStyle.com retail website was created in 2006 in order to provide worldwide customers with high-quality and affordable fashion items from Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and other Asian territories. In keeping with their support of Asian art and culture, YesStyle regularly sponsors Asian and Asian American artists, and has supported shows featuring Korea's Super Junior and Wonder Girls, Taiwan's Show Luo and Hong Kong's Eason Chan. YesStyle also works regularly with Asian American filmmaking group Wong Fu Productions and YouTube musicians David Choi and Clara C.

"akaDAN" presents a fortuitous synergy between YesStyle, Dan Matthews and other Asian American artists. Also on March 6, Dan Matthews releases a new album entitled "Stuntman" that features collaborations with David Choi and Clara C. Along with hip hop group Far East Movement, Wong Fu Productions co-created ISAtv, a YouTube channel and Asian American entertainment network among the first outlets to broadcast "aka DAN".

Dan Matthews said, "I am very thankful for YesStyle's support in this documentary. We've carefully selected the partners we will work with, and YesStyle with its support for the arts and entertainment initiatives of Asian Americans is a perfect match."

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lee Williams, a producer of the first smartphones and tablets, will talk about how he is now applying his experience in mobile technology to the design and development of the next generation of Environmental and Sustainability Services at ETwater. He will explain how M2M controllers work through wirelessly connected remote controls; and specifically delve into a retrofit option that reverse-engineers control codes of existing conventional controller systems so they don't have to be replaced and are instantly converted to become smart, connected devices.
SYS-CON Events announced today that IceWarp will exhibit at the 17th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on November 3–5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. IceWarp, the leader of cloud and on-premise messaging, delivers secured email, chat, documents, conferencing and collaboration to today's mobile workforce, all in one unified interface
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network.

The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

IoE creates new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented opportunities to improve business and government operations, decision making and mission support capabilities.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy.
