Start of production, deliverydate and Software development status

Dear supporters,

Very much has happened again and we are glad to present you a lot of information:

eBlocker Production
The eBlocker production is about to start. All parts (boards, cables, power supplies, cardboards, booklet and license cards) are now in stock at the fabrication facility.

Here are some impressions from our manufacturing partner „Tanne Kunststofftechnik GmbH“ in Bavaria:

This week was all about production optimization. We produced the first zero series of the housing in injection molding and optimized the printing process of the eBlocker logo. Overall we are very happy but there are still some small improvements of the housing surface, which we’ll implement shortly.

In addition, we have practiced the production process and are now optimizing the individual steps for even faster production. The series-production will begin next week.

Delivery Date
As noted in the previous update, our manufacturing and logistics partners have assured us that all pre-ordered eBlockers can be delivered by the end of August. The delivery takes place in the order of incoming orders. Please verify and potentially correct your shipping address, so your eBlocker finds it’s way to you. Please refer to our update no. 29 for instructions on how to verify and change your shipping address.

Software Development Status
In parallel to the production preparations, we have been working on many new features and improvements of eBlockerOS. For example you can look forward to a simplified configuration whitelisting for apps in order to avoid compatibility issues when using the SSL. Furthermore we have improved the tracking-link recognition and the dialogue with the user and additionally created an expert tool, which tech savvy users can analyze and define exceptions for apps themselves. The update is currently in quality assurance and will be published next week. Once the release has been distributed, we will inform you about the changes and improvements in our release notes.

eBlocker at IFA
At IFA, the world’s leading trade shows for consumer electronics and home appliances, we will present eBlocker from 2.9 – 7.9 in Berlin and are currently preparing our booth. There we will also present an insight of the new feature „Smart Device Anti-Spy“,which prevents smart devices to transmitting usage information to the internet. We are very excited to present our series eBlocker for the first time to the global audience at IFA.

Kind regards and have a nice weekend,
Farena and the whole eBlocker team
