first_img Learn Guitar (and Don’t Give Up) With the Fender Play App “Wrinkle-free” is rivaled only by “all-inclusive” as one of the travel industry’s most over-promised — and under-delivered — selling points.New luggage systems are launched on Kickstarter on a weekly basis. Many aim to solve the wrinkle dilemma, but most lack any real innovation. European luggage manufacturer VOCIER promises to solve the wrinkled clothing “epidemic” with a system that’s altogether different than anything we’ve seen before. Their collection isn’t cheap but if, like us, you’re willing to spend more for quality gear, it may be the last luggage you ever buy.Conventional wisdom states that rolling your clothing is better than folding to minimize the pressure/crease points that encourage wrinkling. VOCIER’s two luggage lines — simply “C” and “F” — feature a unique, Formula 1 engine-inspired structure that wraps your garments around a central sleeve eliminating wrinkles entirely. The patented Zero-Crease technology is one of the best and most clever we’ve ever seen. The interior is simple, streamlined, and adapts to almost any packing scenario with a single, removable clothing compartment. For trips when business attire or a suit isn’t necessary, this allows for even more space inside the bag.VOCIER manages to pack a handful of additional clever features into a tiny form factor. A hidden, nearly invisible storage pocket is built into the handle for quick, convenient access to travel essentials — a passport, airline tickets, and other small items. Hooks built into the handle also serve as a valet stand to guarantee there’s always a place to hang your coat. PVC-coated YKK zippers, rich Italian leather, and a soft, durable, Viscose-lined interior all afford a sense of luxury and sophistication.To be clear, this isn’t your grandpappy’s American Tourister luggage. Premium gear packs a premium price tag. The “entry-level” C38 carry-on starts at almost $600 (USD), while their flagship leather F38 is nearly $1,200. A variety of full bundles is available with matching Dopp kits, laptop portfolios, and briefcases. Although, with that sky-high price point comes free worldwide shipping, a 100-day return policy, and they’ll even pay all the import duties and taxes for you.

WebRTC Still a Journey Not a Destination

With WebRTC, though, would you expect something you develop and deploy today to work just as well a year or two from today? If you would, then there’s definitely an expectation issue there. Here are a few pointers for you to consider: Microsoft is replacing the engine used in Edge with ChromiumDown the road, there are thoughts around introducing QUIC to WebRTC as well as using more of WebAssembly in WebRTC Log in or register to post comments I’ve got a personal website, written in Hebrew, where I last wrote in August 2018. Before that? August 2016. Before that? February 2016. And before that? August 2013. You can say that my own professional site takes most of my time these days, while my personal site gets a bit neglected. The interesting thing is, however, that whenever I go to my personal website to write something, it just works. There’s nothing that I have to do to get it to work; it just works. I am hosting this personal website using WordPress, on a managed hosting service, so I don’t have to deal with security, maintenance, backup, or other headaches. The WordPress release is even automatically upgraded for me, as well as PHP and other technologies that are used. When these updates occur, nothing breaks as a result. Somehow, that website has stood the test of time and the software rot that can often take down other systems. WebRTC enables developers to add live voice and video communications to websites and applications. It’s great, but it’s also still rather new, and thus evolving. If you don’t keep pace with all this change, your code rots and becomes irrelevant, and this happens way faster with WebRTC than with many other technologies. Don’t get me wrong, WebRTC is great — there’s no other real alternative. But it isn’t a destination. You don’t sweat it out to get WebRTC into your product and then sit back and relax or move on to the next shiny technology. With WebRTC, you need to continue at it. You need to maintain a development team with the role of keeping the lights on, making sure things don’t break with new browser releases, and maybe adding more features as they become available. WebRTC 1.0 isn’t out yet. It’s coming, but no one knows when exactlyGoogle has been making and continues to make changes to its WebRTC implementation in Chrome:A new echo canceller was just recently introducedIts whole audio threading model got revampedThere’s a new experiment of mDNS going on No Results FoundSorry, but there appears to be no content for this. If you plan on using WebRTC for one of your business applications, be aware that WebRTC requires not only an initial development investment but also an ongoing investment — and this ongoing investment is going to be with you for the foreseeable future. read more
