BeeLine (www.beelinenow.com) today announced the San Francisco Bay Area launch of its social dining service that provides premier culinary experiences with a personalized touch.

“The San Francisco Bay Area is one of the culinary capitals of the world and we are proud to team up with some of the finest restaurants in the region to provide a world class dining experience for BeeLine members,” said Nick Belsito, Founder and CEO, BeeLine. “BeeLine goes beyond reservations, instead acting as a culinary concierge that answers the critical questions of ‘Where are the best restaurants and when can I get in?’ Ultimately, we provide an unmatched personalized dining event that turns a night out on the town into a memory that will last a lifetime.”
BeeLine works one-on-one with their restaurant partners to create experiences customers would not get from the typical reservation giants. A special tasting menu, an opportunity to meet the chef and exclusive access to all-inclusive, prepaid food and beverage packages are just some of the unique benefits that BeeLine members receive. BeeLine custom experiences range in price from free to an average of $40 per person depending on the experience.

BeeLine members have their own unique dining profile with preferences ranging from their drink of choice to allergies and dietary restrictions. Members can also submit a photo and will be recognized and greeted at the restaurant as if they were regulars.
“I’m so busy that planning ahead to dine out takes a back seat to everything else. When it’s finally time to relax, BeeLine bails me out with just the push of a button.” Michael Ahiakpor, VP Product Management, AdRise

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...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
