The Search must be based on Multiple Keywords, Filters or Tags. Dormant Inventory and Parts/Equipment/Furniture not on any live project anymore, Excess Inventory and Obsoleted Parts due to Tech Advancement; should be flagged. This enables other departments to use it, consume it for Maintenance or Research projects or integrate into new designs if not-obsolete.
If found to be valueless, damaged or worn-out by all departments and responsible engineers, then inventory should be sold or given away. The Employees can be the first customers for an inhouse Corporate Garage Sale. An un-organized, complexly-computerized and non-transparent/blocked Stores will end up in a Flea Market.
These days many gadgets with embedded systems are being used. Tablets, Netbooks and Desktop Clients. Many of these are used to make secure transactions like Banking. It is also used as a Security Device for Web Applications and Website Memberships.
The secure transaction process has improved. I know there is encryption and also the NIC number of Ethernet cards etc. I have some thought, i think i will note it here. In one sentence “Make Every CPU Chip Unique with a Unerasable ROM ID Code or Signature” this can also be tied to a QR Code. A Firmware query spawned by a SSL TCP/IP action will return the CHIP ID which enables secure communication and device tracking overriding all user controls.
Processor manufactures and Chip IP makers are standardized. The Secure CPU makers should obtain a license for secure CPU, which will be a CPU but with a Secure Transaction Chip with Unique Identification Code engraved within. Each Chip is unique and a replacement of CPU needs new authentication for all transactions. No two chips are made the same, the unique numbers are not on flash (like BIOS), but digitally etched-burnt with indelible e-ink. So when a person makes transaction his computer is more securely authorized. More security options like GPS in CPU for big transactions, these computers will be expensive too.

This post was made in relation to the TI Chronos and Casio watches, The early Smartwatches. Some parts of this post removed, but this was the post in one of my other blogs that triggered the Smartwatch fever that you see today.
This is not a HandHeld Gizmo but a Gizmo that Holds your Hand and Cling to the Body. Wearable Wireless Computers. The first Smart Wristwatch according to my knowledge was created by Casio. it had many functions including a calculator and calender,
January 1984 – “Casio released watches with various advanced features, including a calculator function (C-80 released in 1980), and a dictionary function (T-1500 Walking Dictionary released in 1982). The company wanted to see the wristwatch evolve from a simple device for telling time to an information device on the wrist.”
“This watch further advanced the concept of an information device on the wrist, and became a major hit product, selling a record total of six million units in the five years after its release.”
A smartwatch or smart watch is a computerized wristwatch with functionality that is enhanced beyond timekeeping, and is often comparable to a personal digital assistant (PDA) device

When i saw this i remember my High School friend, he had built an advanced DIY Wrist Watch with LED Display and Radio, there was a temperature display too. A Gizmo WristWatch around 1980! … his Gizmo got many students wildly interested in Electronics. He also developed a Learning Kit ‘for 555.
Here is one such Temperature, Wireless, USB Data Logger Watch Development Tool. But for an entirely New Generation.
The eZ430-Chronos is a highly integrated, wearable wireless development system based for the CC430 in a sports watch. It may be used as a reference platform for watch systems, a personal display for personal area networks, or as a wireless sensor node for remote data collection.
SmartPhone Protection with SmartWatch
Phones can be Bluetooth Paired with Smart Wristwatch, both Scream when distance above 3+ feet. This will work also with a SmartHeadset when you are wearing that.
An internal supercap powered location pinging system that keeps sending signals to the tower even after battery is removed. This could also be used with SmartHeadset as a ‘locate misplaced phone feature” when you have forgotten the phone at a shop, office or restaurant.
The brand Panasonic was created by Matsushita in 1955 for the US, Canada and Mexico because the National brand was already registered by others The Panasonic brand was created from the elements “pan” meaning “all” combined with “sonic” meaning “sound”, because it was first used for audio equipment.
Not only does the KX-MB2061 include standard printing, color scanning, copying, and fax capabilities; it also includes a built-in digital answering system and DECT 6.0 cordless telephone system with corded handset, which is expandable up to 6 handsets.
