Kickstarter campaign aims for Bluetooth speaker for iOS devices

CubEdge is running a Kickstarter campaign aimed at getting funding for the production of an eco-friendly, wireless Bluetooth speaker. All of the major components in the Edge.sound are biodegradable, and CubEdge offers solar energy options to power the device. The Edge.sound is Bluetooth-enabled, enabling it to connect to iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, as well as other Bluetooth-enabled devices. The speaker packs a battery capable of supporting 10 hours of music playing

The Kickstarter campaign for the Edge.sound currently stands at $38,844 pledged, with a goal of $130,000. Pledge packages between $99 and $129 are currently sold out, but backers pledging $130 will receive an Edge.sound speaker with free shipping within the US. Backers pledging more will have their choice of speaker, and the number of speakers received increases along with the pledge amount.

Google Offers for iOS

Google has announced the release of its Google Offers app for iPhone. The app allows users to discover, buy, and redeem Google Offers and offers from Google partners.

The new app allows for localized deal discovery and the ability to save or track offers. Users can also instantly redeem offers using the iPhone, without needing to print anything. The app also features a notification system telling users when new offers are available or when a saved offer is about to expire. The app is available for free in the iTunes App Store.

Adobe Connect 9 announced

Adobe has announced the impending release of Adobe Connect 9, the newest version of its web conferencing software. Adobe Connect 9 allows users to develop customized event microsites and to coordinate interactive events for up to 1,500 participants.

The new version is interoperable with Adobe Connect Mobile 2.0, allowing users to connect through Apple iOS, Android, and BlackBerry PlayBook devices. Along with support for HTML 5 content, Adobe Connect 9 also integrates customizable landing pages, template-based email content, and online analytics. Adobe Connect 9 and Adobe Connect Mobile 2.0 are expected to be available in the third quarter of 2012. Further information on purchasing plans is available on Adobe's site.
