No. 348: Lobsters and babies in Huntington, a no-fly zone in Riverhead and gunning for greatness with Janam Tech

TGIF: The finish line approaches, dear readers – the end of another productive workweek and the beginning of another autumn weekend. Speaking of autumn weekends, check out this handy dandy pumpkin-picking guide by our friends over at the Long Island Press. Dig it: Continuing the theme of things grown and picked, today is Oct. 12, which also happens to be National Farmer’s Day. That doesn’t mean what it once did on Long Island. But agriculture…


No. 341: Farming out east, divesting at Applied DNA and skipping the most important meal of the day (plus … Super Lawyers!)

Middle ground: Welcome to Wednesday, friends, and the midpoint of another busy workweek on beautiful Long Island. It’s Sept. 19 out there – Day 730 of the bitter Brangelina divorce proceedings, which kicked off when Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt two years ago today. Stay tuned. Shofar, so good: It started at sundown Tuesday and lasts through sundown today, when they’ll be blowing the ceremonial ram’s horn at synagogues around the world….


At Janam Technologies, have gun, will scan barcodes

By GREGORY ZELLER // They’ve set their phasers to stun at Janam Technologies, where the next generation of gun-shaped XG handheld devices goes where no mobile computer has gone before. Featuring a palm-pleasing pistol grip and handle-mounted battery pack, the new XG200 looks for all the world like a “Star Trek” ray gun. But instead of blasting Klingons with energy beams, the sturdy wireless device is designed to “enable peak performance in the most demanding…


No. 294: Hofstra innovators rise, MunchMoney packs a lunch and SUNation’s shifting solar perspective

You’ve done it again: Welcome to Friday, dear reader, and the end of another week of socioeconomic innovation. That’s a lot of Peeps: It’s a holiday weekend, of course, the holiest of Christian holy days and another surefire bonanza for retailers. According to our buddies at Statistic Brain, Americans spend more than $14.6 billion on Easter-related goods each year, including $2.1 billion on Easter candy alone. By the way, although it’s smack-dab in the middle…


In new Janam mobile, same strength, twice the input

By GREGORY ZELLER // The tough guys (and gals) at Janam Technologies are at it again, introducing another user-friendly upgrade to their rugged-computing mix. The Woodbury-based tech firm – which infuses its handheld computers, gun-shaped scanners and RFID readers with a break-it-if-you-can bravado – on Thursday announced “the newest and most powerful addition” to its family of XM mobile computers: the XM75, which offers both keypad and touchscreen functionality, a rarity in the bashable world…


No. 286: ‘King Kong’ lives, Janam Tech muscles up and Sammy Chu bites off more than … actually, he can definitely handle it

Welcome to Friday: You’ve done it again, readers and friends – another week of socioeconomic progress in the books, another weekend earned. It was also a Friday, 56 years ago tonight, on March 2, 1962, when Wilt “The Stilt” Chamberlain set the NBA’s unassailable single-game scoring record, pouring in a phenomenal 100 points for the Philadelphia Warriors in a 169-147 win over the New York Knicks. And that’s without the Nike endorsement: Speaking of record-setting…


At Janam, breaking the mold (by not breaking)

By GREGORY ZELLER // Go ahead, drop it onto concrete from as high as 1.2 meters. It can take it. Behold, the XT100, the latest “rugged touch computer” produced by Woodbury tech firm Janam Technologies, a circa-2005 tech maker that’s kind of the badass 1970s battery commercial of wireless communications – it dares you to knock it off. At least, Janam’s product line – including mobile computers, smartphones and barcode scanners – is built to…
