NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- The year may be halfway over but Chromeo's ascent through 2014 continues at an exponential pace as Tha Funk Lordz announce their Frequent Flyer Tour. This string of dates will touch down throughout America and several cities in Canada during September and October, with Australian producer Wave Racer joining the duo as special guest. With massive performances at Coachella, Bonarroo and Electric Daisy Carnival already under their belts, Dave 1 and P-Thugg are ready to leave an indelible impression on the summer, boasting main stages showings at Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Austin City Limits plus headlining shows at Red Rocks and Central Park Summer Stage.
Chromeo's 4th studio album White Women has been one of the most critically acclaimed releases of 2014, debuting at #1 on iTunes and reaching #11 on the Billboard 200. Their hit single 'Jealous (I Ain't With It)' has been called the Song of the Summer by Huffington Post and Top Track of 2014 by USA Today and Time Magazine.
Of course, the Frequent Flyer tour is presented by Chromeo's newly acquired airline Mallard Air.
"It's easy to be seduced by their quietly fantastic fourth album White Women." - PITCHFORK
"Chromeo's fourth album has everything from smooth Chic guitar joints to flourishes of Euro hi-NRG and modern dance pop so shiny it could have been produced by Dr. Luke." - ROLLING STONE
"Perhaps this is why White Women is the most talked about record released by the band thus far: There is a certain intrigue in the duality intrinsic to the band's DNA." - VOGUE

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
