Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
Rentec Direct, provider of innovative property management software, brings fully automated EFT solutions to the hands of landlords and tenants. EFT, also commonly known as ACH or eCheck, provides an electronic transfer of funds from a tenant's bank account to the landlord's account without the need of a paper check. This process, when automated, saves both the landlord and tenant time and energy every month.
For a landlord, providing an EFT option to tenants is a real win-win. Statistics show that when funds are automatically withdrawn monthly, rather than the tenant having to write a check, tenants stay put longer. Lower turnover to a landlord is as good as gold since it means higher margins and less vacancy. Since the funds transfer electronically there is also less chance of error and no trips to the bank. A landlord can be on vacation in Tahiti and the EFT transfer happens in their absence putting the monthly rent right into their account.
Electronic transfers are great for tenants as well. A tenant can choose the day of the month the transfer takes place so they can best insure funds will be available. Once setup, the tenant has the peace of mind knowing their rent is taken care of each month without the need to do anything further. Theres a reason major utility companies, mortgage processors, cable and satellite operators all use automated payments, and thats because its good for all parties.
Rentec Direct has also revolutionized the setup process for landlords to take advantage of these great tools. The setup process with Rentec has simple paperwork and minimal costs. With the new, simplified setup process, a landlord can be up and running in less than a day.

ASL Recycling Establishes 49 GREENspot Drop-Off Locations in Northern California for Easy Electronics Recycling
San Jose, CA (Vocus) January 30, 2008
ASL Recycling unveiled 49 GREENspot e-waste drop-off locations that opened today throughout Northern California, and announced plans to open more throughout the entire state over the coming months. Now, consumers and businesses that need an easy and convenient way to recycle their old electronics have access to the first ever state-wide network of convenient drop-off locations that accept old TVs, monitors, computers, cell phones and other electronics for free.
Electronic waste, or e-waste, is an environmental challenge that we continue to face as consumers rush to own the newest, fastest, smallest electronics — creating the fastest-growing category of municipal solid waste. Despite the fact that California is leading the nation with its e-waste recycling initiatives, the inconvenient truth about e-waste recycling is that it is still not convenient enough for people to get rid of their old electronics.
Unlike other recyclable waste, there is no ‘blue bin’ equivalent for curbside collection of e-waste, and most California residents simply don’t know what to do with it. By visiting http://www.aslgreenspot.com and typing in a ZIP, it’s easy for anyone to find a nearby drop-off location.
“Now, it’s just as easy to recycle an old gadget as it is to buy a new one,” said Carey Levine, vice president of sales and marketing at ASL Recycling. “What we hear from consumers is that they want to do the right thing, but they’re not sure how. We are dedicated to raising public awareness about e-waste with our three easy steps to recycling: go to aslgreenspot.com, enter your ZIP code, and find a nearby drop-off location. It’s easy. It’s free. It’s green.”
What to recycle, and why
E-waste accepted at GREENspot drop-off locations includes TVs, cell phones, audio-video components, computer equipment, microwave ovens, electronic equipment from offices and labs, and more. These items are potentially toxic to the environment and by choosing to recycle them, Californians can help divert e-waste from landfills. All GREENspot drop-off locations feed their e-waste to ASL Recycling’s state-approved plants, which use an environmentally friendly e-waste recycling process.
“We experienced an overwhelming industry response to last month’s formation of the GREENetwork, with 49 GREENspot locations opening in Northern California. We will expand the GREENetwork so that, by spring of this year, residents and businesses throughout the entire state will have access to the free and convenient e-waste drop-off locations,” added Levine.
A complete list of recycling locations is attached. A complete list of recycling locations, with addresses, is available here.
About ASL Recycling and the GREENetwork
ASL Recycling is dedicated to providing consumers and businesses with the easiest, most accessible, and most trusted e-waste recycling program in the country. Every month, ASL Recycling prevents hundreds of tons of e-waste from being dumped into local landfills by collecting old electronics and preparing it for recycle. To become part of the GREENetwork, visit http://www.aslgreenetwork.com.
Electronic waste is a fast growing problem world wide. It is most evident in Australia because we are among the highest users of New Technology in the world. The ABS has estimated that e-waste in Australia is growing at more than three times the rate of Municipal Waste.
In 2007-08, 31.7 million new televisions, computers and computer products were sold in Australia. Another 16.8 million units reached the end of their life that year. Of these, 88% ended up in landfill. We are way behind other developed countries in recycling electronic waste. The ABS in 2007 reported that around 92.5 million electronic items are held in Australian homes, an average of 22 per household. It estimates Australians will replace 9 million computers, 5 million printers, and 2 million scanners within the next two years.
You may be faced with this problem when you replace your electronic equipment such as Computers, Printers, Televisions, VCR’s, etc. Many councils now are not accepting E-Waste with their General Cleanups. And dumping products is illegal.
I advise you in the first instance to visit e-waste
Where you will find some very useful advise regarding the disposal of unwanted E-Waste. Almost 17 million electronic products are thrown away each year so everyone needs to find an acceptable way of disposing these items. It may eventually become the responsibility of the manufacturer as it has in some other countries but until the government passes an act to this end we must all be responsible with our disposals.
Crutchfield and Consumer Electronics Exchange Give Consumers An Earth-Friendly Way To Swap Unwanted Electronics For A Gift Card
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) April 29, 2008
“You can’t always get what you want,” the Rolling Stones sang, “but sometimes, you get what you need.” That’s the impetus behind one online casual game company’s increasingly popular promotional game where the prizes are Exxon gas cards worth $500 and $50. The site, http://www.WinGasCard.com, is a product of the AdverGame Network, a Charlotte, NC based online video advertising company that has developed a unique niche in the casual game sector, one of the most popular on the Internet.
According to a Parks Associates report, 34% of U.S. Internet households play online games on a weekly basis, compared with 29% who watch short online videos and 19% who visit social networking sites with the same frequency.
“We don’t just want to be fun,” says Matt Coapman, the company’s vice president of business development, “we want to be pertinent as well.”
That’s not to say that the AdverGame Network isn’t giving people what they want as well.
“We already had game sites giving away high desire items like $700 designer handbags and Wii game consoles,” added Coapman. “We’ve given away iPods and Las Vegas vacations, MacBook laptops and digital cameras. That’s what people want. For this one, we felt the urgency to give people something they needed.”
There’s no cost to consumers as all AdverGame Network game sites are free-to-play.
It’s a winning situation for advertisers and sponsors as well. A video player adjacent to the game is always on screen, streaming advertisements and content geared towards the audience that the prize attracts.
“There’s nothing like it in the market. We offer prizes that attract a particular demographic,” says Coapman, admitting though that the current gas card game is universally popular. The designer handbags attracted a strong female audience while the Wii games skewed more towards younger males.
The free gas card game runs through June 29th and offers second chance drawings as well as instant win opportunities. The game is not sponsored by Exxon Mobil Corp.
“We work with great companies in creating these fun games that also offer great benefit to the consumer,” says Coapman. “But for this one, given the way gas prices are skyrocketing, we wanted to get it up fast and didn’t want to wait for a sponsor. We chose to buy Exxon cards for the giveaway because of their national footprint, which would make it more available to our winners.”
“That said, we would love to talk with them or any other oil company that wants to help people out in a fun way until prices come down. Until then, this is our way of giving back,” states Coapman.

Computer forensics is a division of overall forensic science specifically involved with exploring evidences that are hidden in various digital computing devices. This particular field of study basically retrieves unearthing hidden data from digital storage devices such as hard disks, CD-ROMS, flash memories and cell phones.
Throughout the years, this particular field of study has branched and spread its branch to other fields such as retrieving email files, processing systems and data packets traveling on a network. Generally, any information explaining a sequence of events that can be retrieved from a digital computing device can be used as court evidence.
Currently, technology has been widely exploited in order to commit serious crimes including ID thefts, phishing and other online fraudulent crimes. In order to keep a step ahead of these criminals, various detective and investigative agencies from different countries; have strengthened their forces and prepared them with the expertise to fight such crimes. Firewall forensics, database forensics and network & mobile device forensics are some of the many fields that have emerged out of computer forensics in the last decade.
Normally, an investigation of this area is divided into five broad sections:
- Preparation of an investigation
- Collection of data from digital computing devices
- Examination of the data
- Analysis of the data
Much like any other forensic investigation, evidences based on this particular investigation can be used to charge the culprits in court. Computer forensic investigators normally work in the lab for hours – sometimes they have to stay overnight in the lab looking for important leads in some criminal cases.
