Just a Fun Fact

watch-dmDid you ever think about how much something costs to make? How about the new Apple watch that was released a few weeks ago? I came across an email with an article indicating how much it costs to make an Apple Watch, and my jaw dropped. It only costs $83.70 to make! Yes, that’s right, $83.70!

If you’ve checked out the Apple Watch, you are more than aware that the watch starts out at $399, and only goes up in price from there. There is even a version worth $17,000! I wonder how much that one costs to make? Either way, the numbers are shocking and I thought it was a fun fact everyone should be in on!

Such an ugly counterfeit

COUNTERFEIT. What an ugly word, right? Certainly one you don’t want to hear when you’re receiving components in from your electronic component supplier. Not that this is a new problem to anyone out there, but it is one that is a growing concern when you’re choosing who to put all of your trust in when manufacturing your products. It can be one component or a slew of components to totally throw the functionality of your product off just because they didn’t pass the proper testing and aren’t what they “appear” to be.

How can we stop it? There is no way to stop counterfeits from entering the markets. It’s something that will continue to happen and cause a lot of unnecessary drama for many companies who aren’t up-to-date on warning signs and fail to complete necessary research prior to purchasing parts.

Our process involves extensive research and testing to ensure that the components we supply to you and your company are of quality standard and perform as expected. In the event you require further testing of any components sold, we can go ahead and make that possible to give you the complete peace of mind. Our unique set of procedures and techniques for authentication of electronic components help to minimize the risk of counterfeit parts entering the supply chain. As well as monitoring approved suppliers, our inspection process and policy procedures will provide you with quality products and will help safeguard against counterfeiters and defective parts.

Don’t let counterfeits interfere with your production process. Always be alert in the market and if any red flags are visible, be sure to take the extra moment to analyze the situation.

LANTEK CORPORATION’S 1-YEAR QUALITY GUARANTEE: When you purchase electronic components from Lantek Corporation, you are protected by this guarantee. We are so confident in our supplier network that in the rare event that the components you purchase from Lantek Corporation fail to meet manufacturer specifications within 1 year from the date of purchase, we will either replace the parts or refund the purchase price. That is our guarantee to you!

Supporting a Cure for Multiple Sclerosis

Lantek Dresses For A Cure

During the month of March, Lantek Corporation honored Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month and sported their orange with pride. In an effort to raise awareness, our team held a dress down day on Thursday, March 5th, where every employee donated $10 to the National MS Society. In addition, Lantek Corporation’s General Manager agreed to match everyone’s $10 donation, bringing our employee contribution to a total of $280!

In addition, all orders placed during the month of March resulted in a percentage to be donated to the society. We are happy to announce that Lantek Corporation donated $1,000 to the National MS Society based upon the orders we received during March.

That brings us to grand total of $1,280 donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society! This is truly amazing and we couldn’t thank our team and customers enough for helping us make a difference in the lives of those who face the unpredictable nature of Multiple Sclerosis.

And to just add a little more fun into the mix, we will be stepping out on Sunday, April 19th to attend Walk MS 2015 as part of team Demyelinate This, which was formed by our very own, Lyndsay Wright.

New Strategies Unfold for Samsung

Interesting news was unfolding out of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) when Samsung’s CEO, BK Yoon announced that he would be investing $100 million to the companies developer network to create an open “Internet of Things” strategy. His theory behind this strategy is that all devices will easily communicate with each other.

“Samsung isn’t just funding developers to create an open IoT system, but also opening its devices to the Internet of Things. In two years, 90% of Samsung devices will work within IoT ecosystems, with the remaining 10% coming online by 2020.” (http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2015/01/11/will-samsungs-100-million-internet-of-things-strat.aspx)

Samsung doesn’t seem to be the only one in the market to make these moves. There are reports that Apple, Google, and Qualcomm are making similar moves within the industry, but Samsung has the upper hand at the moment.

The “Internet of Things” strategy is a hot topic within the technology and electronics industries so it will be interesting to see what comes next. These developments will continue to emerge as the industries adapt and change to the new concept. It will certainly be interesting to see what’s next so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for an update on this hot topic!
