Pure Launches Second Generation 'Pure Connect' Apps for iPad, iPhone and Android Devices in North America at CES 2013

Free New App Makes Music Discovery Easy

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- (International CES South Hall #36254) Today at CES 2013, Pure announces second generation 'Pure Connect' apps for iPad, iPhone and Android devices, which have been designed with content and music discovery at their heart to deliver a truly immersive and engaging user-experience.

The new Pure Connect app gives users access to local music on their smartphone or tablet, thousands of radio stations, on-demand programmes and podcasts, as well as millions of music tracks via the Pure Music subscription service(1). The free apps and new and improved Pure Connect website (www.pureconnect.com) have been designed with content at their heart and very simple, easy to use navigation. Music discovery is made easy with a seamless journey from the moment the user logs in thanks to the new 'discovery' section, which includes smart recommendations based on the user's history.

Control for Pure's new Jongo multiroom music system (announced today at CES) is built into the DNA of the free Pure Connect apps. The Pure Jongo system is the world's first family of affordable multiroom audio products and allows the user to start with a single speaker and add more Jongo products for perfectly synchronized audio all around their home.

All content is kept synced in the cloud and users can access their content intuitively from all devices wherever and whenever they want including PCs, Macs, iOS and Android devices, or any Pure Music streaming product that is linked to Pure Connect.

Pure Connect features content from Audioboo's(2) new initiative, In Their Own Words, which allows content creators such as musicians, authors, comedians and more to connect more closely with their fans by sharing all aspects of their creative process through the social spoken word.

"The design and user-experience that the new Pure Connect app delivers elevates it to be a best-in-class audio service," said Noam Meppen, Pure's director of sales, US. "Pure Connect offers a wealth of great content, while allowing users to explore related content and enjoy tailored recommendations. All this coupled with the customization controls users are accustomed to delivers a compelling new service for music lovers."

Coming soon: The Pure Connect website and apps include a full music store and Pure Music. A new 'friends' section will be added so that users can see what their friends are listening to and share playlists socially.

The new, second generation Pure Connect apps will be available in North America in the first quarter of 2013.

The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities – ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups. As a result, many firms employ new business models that place enormous impor...
We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual b...
