LOS ANGELES, Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hello Music, the leading social commerce platform for musicians, today unveiled Hello Music 3.0. Over 12 months in the making and based on feedback from thousands of its members, the new site boasts a completely new redesign.

Hello Music's new site experience is tailored to seven unique tribes of musicians including: Guitarists, Singer-Songwriter, Bass Players, Keyboardists, Drummers, Pro Audio Engineers, and DJs. Within these tribes, members will now find curated products and services hand-picked by the Hello Music team, as well as hundreds of other items determined by Hello Music's social interaction Shopping Feed.

The Tribal Experience
Hello Music is serving seven unique tribes of musicians with a revamped experience for each.  The platform will customize a member's experience based on which tribe they associate with during each visit. Whether a Hello Music member plays guitar, drums, or is a vocalist, they can now progressively scroll through the site and products. Members will also have the ability to cross-explore other musician-tribes. Each time a member visits Hello Music they will have an entirely new experience of discovery.

Vastly Expanded Assortment
Hello Music has expanded their daily opportunities to include seven additional daily offerings for the musician tribes, from gear to studio services to marketing opportunities.  After exploring the platforms' featured daily deals, members now have a chance to see other related products and services curated by the Hello Music team and community. Furthermore, members will now be able to take a deeper dive into product and services details via more photos, videos, reviews, and specs.

The Community Determines "What's Hot"
Hello Music also debuts the first-ever musician Social Shopping Feed.  What differentiates Hello Music from other musician commerce sites is a social community of musicians.

Hello Music's community is serious about the craft of making music and they often share their thoughts, feeling, and opinions with other musicians via Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Through the new Social Shopping Feed, members can now have a voice in influencing "What's Hot" on the platform. Hello Music integrated social endorsement into every product and service listing. Members can now Like, Pin, Tweet and comment on any product or service on the platform. In doing so, they will contribute to the community and influence the Social Shopping Feed.

"It's our mission to be the most valuable resource on the planet for musicians.  With Hello Music 3.0, we have taken another step forward by segmenting the site experience by unique musician groups, vastly expanding our offerings in an intelligent curated manner, and introducing the first in the industry Social Shopping Feed," said Rick Camino, CEO of Hello Music. "The site is re-merchandised minute-by-minute based on member's feedback. Through social engagement, we are empowering our community with even more tools to tell us what they want and how we can better serve them. We are extremely proud of Version 3.0 and our members can expect to see even more innovative features later this year."

As more and more data is generated from a variety of connected devices, the need to get insights from this data and predict future behavior and trends is increasingly essential for businesses. Real-time stream processing is needed in a variety of different industries such as Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Automobile, Finance, Online Retail, Smart Grids, and Healthcare. Azure Stream Analytics is a fully managed distributed stream computation service that provides low latency, scalable processing of streaming data in the cloud with an enterprise grade SLA.

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.
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?

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.
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...

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...

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.

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.
