The highly anticipated Marshall Monitor is now available online at marshallheadphones.com, and will be available in retailers beginning in early May for $200. The Monitor embodies the power and strength that is Marshall in a headphone, with hi-fi prowess and larger-than-life sound.
Its slender over-ear construction delivers superior noise isolation without the bulk. Monitor is embossed with a white script logo and black vinyl leather, evoking the spirit of those legendary vintage amps, while the heavy-duty cast metal hinges, brass accents and plug make it full-out roadworthy. The completely detachable double-ended coil cord with mic and remote can be worn on either the right or left side. The extra 3.5mm socket allows you to share your music. When you’re done, fold ‘em up and stow them away in the canvas carrying pouch.
Resonating with the power of live performance, Monitor produces deep bass with extended highs and natural, well-balanced mids. Its custom-made low distortion 40mm drivers cover the entire frequency range. Even at high playback levels, the sound is punchy and dynamic. With the Monitor’s F.T.F. system, you can choose your own sound experience ¬– a warmer, laid back sound, or a brighter and clearer sound.

Only a few weeks ago we wrote about how the Apple iPad has revolutionized the way in which people interact with information – and that Bloomberg has been there from the beginning.
Today we are proud to officially unveil the next version of the Bloomberg Anywhere app for iPad. We believe the redesigned app will take accessing financial information on a mobile platform to a new level of sophistication with its enhanced navigation and added features straight from the Bloomberg Professional service.
Our latest iPad app release is yet another example of Bloomberg’s drive for innovation as we provide subscribers with leading technology they can access wherever and whenever. Bloomberg has been providing mobile access to the most trusted source of data, news and analytics for more than 20 years and continues to deliver the mobility users require in a fast-moving, global market.
By having our “user experience” design team work directly with our customers to test the app’s design elements and capabilities, and listening to subscribers’ feedback, we have developed additions that focus on three specific areas:
1) enhanced customization and navigation, so users can easily access relevant news and market information
2) better offline capabilities, so they can read and access important information while in-flight
3) and added features, including Instant Bloomberg, Bloomberg Industries and enhanced charting capabilities
The tight integration and collaboration between our R&D and design teams, as well as our customers is what makes us so excited about this latest release.
We have seen – over the past three years – the number of subscribers accessing our platform on a mobile device double and more than half access the platform via multiple devices.
Bloomberg Anywhere was created with this in mind – and as the computing habits of our subscribers (current and future) evolves, we will continue to evolve alongside them to deliver the information and services they need and expect – anywhere, anytime.
For Bloomberg Professional service subscribers who want to download the new app can do so for free at the App Store:

Many of Silicon Valley’s most successful companies have capitalized on their relationships with strategic partners and investors, taking advantage of key customer relationships and sharing development costs for new products. In addition, leveraging corporate strategic investors/partners can help accelerate a young company’s momentum in a rapidly evolving sector. However, working with a strategic investor for a growing company also has its risks with respect to investment terms and the liquidity event. How can early stage companies and venture capital investors that co-invest with strategic investors better manage their relationships with these investors and partners while leveraging their expertise and presence?
VC Taskforce’s Corporate Venture Capital special interest group has formed a panel of some of the leading mobile and gaming corporate VCs and executives to address some of these issues and provide insight to early stage/growing companies and venture capital investors.

iBuildApp announced today a new Android app creator called Android Builder. The tool simplifies creating an iPhone and Android apps for smartphones.
I’m playing around with it right now, which is easy because it is free.
IBuildApp stressed the following in the press release:
- Now anyone can build an Android app using the web interface, without any knowledge of Java.
- The free solution allows anyone to create their own apps rather than hope developers create what they need. It also makes it easy to build and automatically publish an app to an app gallery.
- Some customers have become so good at creating iPhone apps they have started to make apps for others (becoming resellers).
This is pretty much all you need to know to get started. The thing that throws me a little is that I’m trying to develop an Android app and the site keeps referring to the Apple Store. We’ll see how it goes.
My latest blog post for CIOUpdate.com went live this morning. I talk about some of the trends I saw at RSA last week including emphasis on securing virtual and mobile environments.
Maker of the Award-Winning Application My Mobile Watchdog Expands on Android, the Fastest Growing Operating System
NEWPORT BEACH, CA – (January 28th) –eAgency Mobile Security, developer of the My Mobile Watchdog service, today announced the launch of My Mobile Watchdog on the Android platform. My Mobile Watchdog for Android expands the leadership of the best-known product for monitoring cell phone use, giving parents a solution for their children’s Android-based smartphones.
In a related corporate announcement, eAgency Mobile Security is also making a strong commitment to the mobile security market via three broad new categories: Personal Security, Enterprise Security, and Public Safety. It currently has several new products in various stages of development, and will be introducing those products throughout 2011.
“Mobile device security is one of the most critical needs in today’s digital world. Yet at the very time people are seeking help the most, industry consolidation is creating gaps in both technology and innovation,” said Bob Lotter, Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Our company’s steady advance in expertise, led by My Mobile Watchdog for Android, has put us in an ideal position to fill this unmet need.”
Peace-of-Mind with Android Phones
As smartphones based on the Android operating system become increasingly popular for children and teens, My Mobile Watchdog for Android offers the same powerful yet non-intrusive protection found in its original My Mobile Watchdog product.
My Mobile Watchdog’s online management tools monitor inappropriate contact with a child’s mobile phone. The technology monitors a child’s inbound and outbound activity, immediately notifying parents if a child receives an unwanted or suspicious call, email, picture message or text message. Activities are logged and archived to the My Mobile Watchdog account, allowing parents to view, assess and take action on questionable contacts. Parents have access to the application management tool, giving them the ability to approve or block various applications like Facebook, Web browser, Twitter, games and the camera.
“We’re making a commitment to our valued customers to deliver the very best mobile security products possible,” added Nicholas Montes, President. “With the introduction of My Mobile Watchdog for Android, we’re also continuing to meet the changing nature of the mobile device market.”

I had a really interesting talk about a month ago with some staff members from a maximum security facility for minors somewhere in the USA. I agreed to keep tany identifying information confidential and it is irrelevant anyway. They wanted to know what I thought about the security implications of residents (mostly teenagers) having Nintendo DS and Sony PSP in the facility. They had seen that I write a lot about network security for different magazines and sites and also seen this blog so they thought I would be a natural choice to speak about these issues. I thought it was an interesting exercise.
On the surface, what harm could there be from allowing some kids to play portable video games? It doesn’t seem like such a bad thing.
This is what I came up with. There are probably more things that can be done that I might have gotten to if I had some more time to brainstorm.
1. The Nintendo DS and the Sony PSP can physically be used as weapons. You could hold one in your hand and hit someone with it. You could sharpen a stylus and shank someone with it. You could break a UMD and use the sharp edge to attack someone. If you allow the kids to have the device then you have to allow the chargers and maybe the headphones; the cords of either could be used to strangle someone.
2. The Nintendo DS has a plastic blank filling the compartment where a GBA cartridge gets plugged in. The inside of that blank can be used to conceal contraband. Likewise with the UMD bay of the PSP, and maybe even the Memory Stick Slot of the PSP.
