On the edge

BlackBerrys ready for rain

The OtterBox 1931 from Otter Products LLC is a rugged case that provides access to phone and data functions for Research in Motion BlackBerry 7200 handsets.

The OtterBox offers water-resistant access to the keypad, scroll wheel, escape button, power button, mute button and programmable side button. Constructed of a polycarbonate/ ABS shell, the cases provide grip and drop protection with rubber overmolding.

A rigid screen cover protects the LCD from scratches and drop damage, and acoustic membrane vents allow sound to come through while keeping the case sealed. An easy-open plug provides access to the sync/charge jack and headphone jack.

Molded rubber inside the cases cradles the BlackBerry handset, and an O-ring seals it from exposure.

Data needs to be found

Exanet Inc., a provider of software-based, clustered network-attached storage, introduced ExaSearch, an enterprise-class search engine that integrates with the company's scalable ExaStore software.

ExaSearch enables customers to turn massive amounts of stored data into easily accessible information.

The enhanced search engine is capable of searching multiple sources: file servers, e-mail systems, groupware, databases and employee directories. It can process unstructured data and queries and allow immediate access to newly generated content through real-time indexing, thereby ensuring that users receive the most relevant and current results, the company said.
