    Veggie or Turkey Sausage varieties. Both are served on toasted
    multigrain flatbread.
    --  Wake-Up Wraps are perfect for value-conscious, on-the-go people who want

    with fewer calories than the usual breakfast sandwich. Wake-Up Wraps are
    available in several varieties, including Egg White Veggie (150
    calories), Egg White Turkey Sausage (150 calories), Egg & Cheese (180
    calories) and Ham, Egg & Cheese (200 calories).

    Vir2o to Offer Products from Amazon aStore in its Social Media Marketplace

    ATLANTA, Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- East Coast Diversified Corporation (OTC.BB:ECDC) is pleased to announce that its new social media engagement platform, Vir2o, has been approved as an Amazon Associate.

    The Vir2o Marketplace will feature an Amazon aStore, allowing users to shop for anything on Amazon.com without ever leaving the Vir2o social network.

    "The integration of Amazon's aStore is going to help us launch a new era in social shopping," said Stephen Antczak, Vir2o's Marketing and Advertising Manager. "The Amazon aStore, when combined with the Vir2o platform, will maximize viral sales in ways never before seen and allow us to deliver relevant content and products to users. This integration will also help us to better understand the social behavior of users interacting with one another in real time while shopping."

    With the integration of the Amazon aStore, the Vir2o Marketplace will feature the diversity of products users have come to expect from Amazon, as well as include all product details and offer a trusted and secure shopping cart function. Vir2o will be positioned to offer similar shopping experience to users in markets where Amazon aStore is available outside the US.

    "We are quite excited about how the aStore will work with Vir2o," said ECDC CEO Kayode Aladesuyi. "Our social shopping technology allows friends and families to shop together interactively on Amazon and easily share purchases and shopping experiences with others. We believe social shopping and viral sales are here to stay, and the Vir2o Marketplace, featuring Amazon content, will allow sellers and retailers to get multiple impressions each time a user invites friends or family to shop on Vir2o."

    As Vir2o moves out of beta and into full launch in early 2013, the Marketplace will allow registered users to upload and sell products through a Retailer Account.

    Record Number Of Entries For Weight Watchers(R) Annual Success Story Contest Share Inspirational Stories Of TransformationThree Grand Prize Winners Enjoy One-on-One Styling Session with Jennifer Hudson And Experience the Ultimate New Year's Eve in New York City

    NEW YORK, Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As Weight Watchers International, Inc. welcomes 2013 and celebrates 50 years of success, the world's leading provider of weight management services announces three grand prize winners of the Weight Watchers Celebrate Success Contest: Pete Fintak of Manga, Utah; Michaela Martin of Jacksonville, Florida; and Robin Wahl of Sicklerville, New Jersey. Together this inspirational trio, along with 100 first prize winners, lost more than 8,600 pounds. Winners were selected by Weight Watchers from a record-number of more than 4,500 entries, nationwide. One of the three grand prize winners was chosen from 10 finalists by Weight Watchers Facebook community.

    Prizes and Surprises

    The three grand prize winners enjoyed a $2,500 shopping spree and a trip for two to New York City to celebrate New Year's Eve in Times Square and appear on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest on ABC. Weight Watchers Ambassador Jennifer Hudson also surprised the winners with a special one-on-one styling session with her Creative Director Eric Archibald on the set of her newest Weight Watchers commercial where they swapped stories about how the program and their weight losses have changed their lives.

    The 100 first-prize winners each received a gift card. Seven of the contest winners were also cast in Weight Watchers TV commercials that will be featured in the "Expect Amazing" Campaign.

    Inspiring Stories of the Grand Prize Winners

    The three grand prize winners speak passionately about their Weight Watchers experience, noting how their lives "switched on" as the weight came off, and how they each have newfound confidence in themselves, pride in their appearance, energy to do what they love, and commitment to helping others transform their lives.

    "I'm in better shape than I've been in 16 years," says 37 year old Peter Fintak of Manga, Utah, an IT manager and National Guard musician, who lost 69 pounds as a Weight Watchers Online subscriber. After seeing a photo of himself on the beach playing with his son, he wondered "Who is that fat guy?" and immediately decided it was time to develop a healthier lifestyle, giving him more energy to play with his son, and rock on stage.

    Robin Wahl, a 40 year old paramedic from Sicklerville, New Jersey, used to stay alert through her graveyard shift with frequent stops for candy, chips and cigarettes at the convenience store, which she says lead to her weight gain and taking five cholesterol medications a day. After attending Weight Watchers meetings and losing 70 pounds, Robin says her blood pressure and cholesterol are normal, she's stopped smoking, and is now an avid runner currently training for an Ironman Triathlon.

    Selected as a grand prize winner by Weight Watchers Facebook fans, 26 year old Michaela Martin, a medical student from Jacksonville, Florida, signed up for Weight Watchers Online after being diagnosed with hypertension and Type 2 diabetes when she was just 22 years old. Committed to revamping her lifestyle, and becoming a role model for her future patients, Michaela lost 35 pounds on the plan while making smarter eating choices and developing healthier habits and routines. Today, the future doctor says her blood pressure is within a normal range and she is free of all diabetes medication.

    "We hear inspiring stories from our members and Weight Watchers Online subscribers every day, and the achievements of our contest winners are nothing short of amazing," said Cheryl Callan, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Weight Watchers North America. "Each of these individuals has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to changing their lifestyles for the better - in turn, they've achieved incredible results and inspired others to make a change - something we're very proud to celebrate."

    To share their incredible success and continue to inspire others, the grand prize winners will be featured on WeightWatchers.com with personal profiles and before and after photos. Several contest winners, including grand prize winners Pete Fintak and Robin Wahl will be featured in national TV advertising, as well as an intimate social media campaign, the "I'm Only Human and I Did It Project," a series of moving accounts of Weight Watchers members and Online Subscribers conquering fear, never giving up, and finding a new belief in themselves.

    Industry's Simplest Micropower Fuel Gauge from Maxim Integrated Reduces Quiescent Current by 4x and Size by 3xMaxim's ModelGauge(TM) algorithm reduces design complexity and maximizes battery runtime.

    SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. today announced that it is sampling the MAX17048, the industry's simplest low-power fuel gauge for Lithium-ion (Li+) batteries. Operating at only 23uA, this battery fuel gauge uses 4x less power than competitive devices and even less in micropower hibernate mode, in which the fuel gauge continues to operate. It needs only one external capacitor, not the multiple external devices of competitive devices, so it simplifies design, shrinks solution size by 3x, and reduces costs. This fuel gauge is ideal for portable battery-powered applications where size, cost, and power are critical, such as smartphones, wireless handsets, and mobile accessories, including Bluetooth(R) headsets, portable speakers, fitness devices, and Wi-Fi(R) routers.

    (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120912/SF71654LOGO)

    Traditional fuel gauge designs require multiple external components including current-sense resistors, which increase both bill of materials (BOM) cost and design complexity. Those fuel gauges also use coulomb counting, which can drift and affect the accuracy of the gauge over time. The MAX17048 features the proven ModelGauge(TM) algorithm and does not require coulomb counting to report accurate battery state-of-charge, thus extending runtime. The MAX17048 functionality is also integrated into the company's TINI(R) Power System-on-Chip (SoC) to make it easier to upgrade designs to more complex systems.

    Key Advantages

    --  Accurate fuel gauging: ModelGauge algorithm provides accurate state of
    charge and compensates for temperature and load variation.
    --  Simplified design: The algorithm also eliminates the need for the
    current-sense resistor required in competing coulomb-counting fuel
    gauges.
    --  Power conservation: The MAX17048 automatically detects when the battery
    enters a low-current state and switches into a low-power 4uA hibernate
    mode, while still providing accurate fuel gauging. The IC automatically
    exits hibernate mode when the system returns to active state.
    --  Upgrade path to full power management: The MAX17048 functionality is
    available in a Power SoC with identical IP to facilitate a complete
    power-management solution in a shortened time to market.
    

    Industry Commentary

    --  "Mobile device manufacturers are increasingly paying attention to
    enhancing user experience to set themselves apart from their
    competition," said Bakul Damle, Business Director at Maxim Integrated.
    "Having a simple but trustworthy fuel gauge to correctly inform the user
    about the battery status as well as improve runtime goes a long way in
    achieving this goal."
    --  "Although fuel gauges have traditionally been found in notebook computer
    applications, they are increasingly appearing as a critical 'must-have'
    element in consumer devices. With a highly accurate fuel gauge,
    customers know how much battery is left in their mobile device and that
    gives them confidence in the product," said Susie Inouye, Principal
    Analyst of Databeans.
    

    Availability and Pricing

    --  The MAX17048 is available in an 8-bump WLP package (0.9mm x 1.7mm) and
    an 8-pin TDFN package (2mm x 2mm).
    --  Pricing starts at $1.12 (1000-up, FOB USA).

    AMETEK Announces Two Technology AcquisitionsSunpower, Inc. is a Leader in Cryogenic Cooling And Heated Stirling Engine TechnologyCrystal Engineering's High-End, Portable Calibration Instruments Complement AMETEK's Test & Calibration Instruments Businesses

    BERWYN, Pa., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AMETEK, Inc. today announced that it has completed two technology-related acquisitions:

    --  Sunpower, Inc., a privately held leader in the development of stirling
    cycle cryocoolers and externally heated stirling engine technology for
    medical, scientific, telecommunication and space applications
    --  Crystal Engineering, a privately held manufacturer of high-end, portable
    pressure calibrators and digital test gauges for the oil and gas, power
    generation and other industrial markets
    

    "Both Sunpower and Crystal Engineering are excellent acquisitions that provide us with the opportunity to bring key technologies in-house. These technologies will allow us to develop the next-generation of advanced radiation detection and pressure calibration instruments," comments Frank S. Hermance, AMETEK Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

    Sunpower

    Headquartered in Athens, OH, Sunpower designs and develops high reliability cryocoolers and externally heated Stirling cycle engines. Its cryocoolers are used to lower temperatures below -150( )degrees C without the use of expensive liquid nitrogen, while its heat engines are used in micro co-generation (heat and power) devices.

    "Sunpower's cryogenic cooling technology provides a critical enabling technology for use in our highly successful ORTEC Detective(R) family of portable radiation identifiers. It provides a platform to support the continued growth of this product family while providing us with opportunities to broaden the application of cryogenic cooling and Stirling heat engine technology," adds Mr. Hermance.

    Sunpower becomes part of AMETEK Advanced Measurement Technology (AMT), a division of AMETEK's Electronic Instruments Group -- a recognized leader in advanced monitoring, testing, calibrating and display instruments with annualized sales of $1.9 billion.

    Crystal Engineering

    Headquartered in San Luis Obispo, CA, Crystal Engineering has high-end pressure measurement technology and manufactures high-end portable digital pressure calibrators and digital test gauges that fit well with AMETEK's JOFRA(R) temperature and pressure calibrators.

    "We share common products and markets with Crystal Engineering. It strengthens our technology and product offering in the calibration instruments market. Crystal's products broaden our line of high-end temperature and pressure calibration instruments, while its product line benefits from the global reach and resources of our Electronic Instruments Group," concludes Mr. Hermance.

    Crystal Engineering joins AMETEK Measurement & Calibration Technologies (M&CT), also a Division of AMETEK's Electronic Instruments Group.

    Corporate Profile

    AMETEK is a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with annualized sales of $3.4 billion. AMETEK's Corporate Growth Plan is based on Four Key Strategies: Operational Excellence, Strategic Acquisitions & Alliances, Global & Market Expansion and New Products.

    Massive Dynamics Set to Offer the First WEB 4.0 Android Computing Tablet in Early 2013

    CUPERTINO, Calif., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Massive Dynamics, Inc. announced today that Company management has completed final arrangements to offer the first new breakthrough WEB 4.0 computing tablet, which will operate on Google's Android platform. Company management believes this cutting edge product will give the Company priority access to the potential 210 million tablets forecast by Digitimes to be sold in 2013. According to the forecast, 70 million tablets will come from companies other than Apple Inc., Samsung Electronics and Microsoft Corp. With that size of a market available for a Massive Dynamics entry, management believes this new "next level" tablet can capture a sizeable portion of these estimated 2013 sales.

    This new "first of its kind" tablet is in right in line with the Company's focus on lucrative new WEB 4.0 technology as the product can receive information and instructions without the user needing to touch the tablet, utilize voice input or incorporate any peripheral device whatsoever. The term "WEB 4.0" is typically defined as the imminent evolution into "Intelligent Interaction" of consumer electronics. The company will be releasing more details about this new product in the coming weeks.

    With arrangements now in place, Company management is focusing its efforts on the manufacturing phase - which includes quality control, design standards and packaging for the first production run of the new tablet. Production and availability schedules will be disclosed to the public as they develop.

    More information on the breakthrough technology and products that Massive Dynamics develops and sells may be seen at www.MassiveDynamicsCorp.com - which will soon contain more details of the new WEB 4.0 computing tablet and its enhanced abilities.
