San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
With tech gadgets, innovative software, and flashy toys in every corner of the Consumer Electronics Show mid-January, it was difficult to be heard above the din. But Kaliki, an on-demand audio content provider, got the attention of Black Enterprise Magazine at the show.
"When it comes to technology, Black Enterprise is committed to two things: 1) Informing our audience about the innovative solutions available that will help them be more efficient, productive, and sustainable both professionally and personally; and 2) celebrating African American Business owners who have leveraged technology in unique and practical ways,” said Marcia A. Wade, Tech Editor and Multimedia Content Producer for Black Enterprise, “We chose Kaliki as the 2013 International CES Best in Show for the Smartest Automotive Tech Solution because Bruce Hopkins and Tirrell Payton fulfilled both of those goals by introducing an outstanding product that will revolutionize how, when, and where we consume media.”
Kaliki was awarded Best in Show in the category of Smartest Automotive Tech Solution for its Kaliki Audio Newsstand, which was unveiled by Ford as one of the apps launching with its new Ford Sync AppLink platform. With Kaliki, drivers can stay on top of the news and information of the day without taking their attention away from the road. Kaliki also offers a smartphone app for Android devices that curates the top news stories from newspapers and magazines and provides an audio version for playback.
“Being honored by Black Enterprise was an honor,” said Kaliki CEO Tirrell Payton, “To be noted in such a thriving environment for technology innovation tells us we’re doing something right.”
Kaliki partners with major publications like Shape Magazine, TV Guide, Men’s Fitness, OK!, Star, Country Weekly, and Agence France-Presse, to provide audio versions of print content. For more information on Kaliki’s Audio Newsstand, visit kaliki.com.
