Terms & Regulations

Scheduling
Our schedule changes daily, depending on other clients, traffic conditions and public transportation. You should allow us a one hour margin from your appointed time. If we schedule for 5:00pm, we might arrive as late as 6:00pm, but we always try our best to be punctual

Time = Money
When your technician comes over, please remember that time is money. Although we work very fast, we are not psychic and can never be 100% sure how much time a certain task could take. The charge is by an hourly rate, even if it takes 4 hours to do something you thought would take only 2 hours.

One Hour Minimum
The first charge is always for arriving/traveling and the first hour of work. Even if your problem is fixed after 9 minutes, you will still have to pay for the entire hour. After the first hour, charges will be made for parts of an hour (for example, 2 hours and 10 minutes).

Payment
We accept cash or checks (with a preference for cash). If you are a business, we can invoice you, and set up a time to be paid. For remote/online service, we accept payment through PayPal.com or Google Checkout.

Coverage Area
Since this is New York, most of our traveling takes place on public transportation, which means that if you live too far from the city, there will be an extra charge for the first hour (the hour that includes the traveling fee).

This former Apple prodigy just got $9.5 million from Steve Wozniak to make robots that yank staples from documents

Ripcord CEO Alex Fielding

Alex Fielding has already had a heck of a career.

In 1996, at the age of 18, he joined Apple, where he worked on the first iMac under the just-returned cofounder Steve Jobs.

In 2001, he and Apple cofounder Steve “Woz” Wozniak started up Wheels of Zeus (abbreviated as “WoZ,” get it?), a company that made GPS tags so companies could track inventory. Over the years, Fielding would go on to cofound or work at other startups with other ex-Apple execs, too.

Now, that Apple pedigree has come back into play as Fielding’s newest venture, Ripcord, is officially launching with a $9.5 million dollar investment from Kleiner Perkins, Lenovo’s cousin investment firm Legend Star, Lux Capital — and Steve Wozniak, the Woz himself. If that’s not enough nerd cred, Ripcord is actually a NASA spinoff, too.

And what Ripcord does is run a growing factory floor populated by robots, designed to scan, store, and index tremendous piles of paper for later retrieval, ten times faster than a human could do it. Check it out:

In the short term, Fielding tells Business Insider, Ripcord is already helping publicly traded companies and law firms like Wilson Sonsini with the hassle of managing the hundreds or thousands of pages worth of information they need to keep handy for the purposes of regulatory compliance. He’s planning on staffing the 30-strong company up with 100 more factory workers over the next year as demand ramps up.

In the longer term, Fielding sees Ripcord, along with the artificial intelligence powering it under the hood, as bringing about an end to paper itself.

“To me, that’s a very beautiful thing,” says Fielding.

No robot uprising

Fielding and his early team have no experience with what the industry calls “records management.” Instead, the company was actually the result of a bet between Fielding and a friend.

Sometime in 2015, a friend of Fielding’s worked in operations at a tech company that was preparing to go public, and had to retrieve the mountains of financial paperwork that needed to be filed alongside the S-1 form. That meant calling up his document services provider, and getting the last year’s worth of paperwork from their specialized storage facility.

But, Fielding says, the document provider had lost the majority of his friend’s required boxes, slowing down the entire process drastically until they could find replacements and backups and were able to reconstruct what was lost. Fielding was shocked that a modern company, especially a tech company, would rely so heavily on old-fashioned paper.

 ripcord machine

“I did what any great friend would do. I teased and chided my friend,” says Fielding. “‘You clearly didn’t get the memo; the world is going paperless.'” 

His friend “made all these excuses,” says Fielding, citing the thousand dollars-plus per box that document storage companies can charge to digitize that paper. Even once the paper is digitized, Fielding says, fees can pile up. Sometimes, he says, they even charge you per keystroke to change file names or folders in their systems.

Fielding couldn’t believe it, and wagered his friend a lunch that he could find some company, somewhere, that could save his friend from this ever happening again. He couldn’t. And so the seed was planted for Ripcord.

The stapler problem

It sounds silly at first, but a really big part of the reason why this has never been done before are staples. Existing scanner systems require humans to pull staples, separate three-ring binders, unclip paper clips, and occasionally even unstrip duct tape before they can go through the system — otherwise they jam up the works.

“If you can use it to stick paper together, somebody has,” Fielding says.

Humans can do that work, but it’s tedious, and Fielding says that humans actually get worse at it over time — if you grow accustomed to removing staples from the top-left corner for eight hours a day, you’re more likely to miss the one staple in the top-right. If you miss it, the system gets gunked up, and you’ve lost hours of work.

bankers box

At the time of that fateful wager, Fielding was working at NASA as a technologist. When he explained to the NASA higher ups what he was working on, they gave him office space, access to experts, and other resources to get started. 

The reason for their excitement has everything to do with those staples. The same artificial intelligence that Ripcord’s robots use to detect whether something is a paper fastener or not could be broadly applicable to its own scientific search. While self-driving cars and the like have nailed this problem at large scales, Fielding’s robots are one of the few projects to try it with things as small as paperclips.

“This is an example of artificial intelligence that’s not Skynet,” says Fielding. “A Ripcord robot isn’t going to kill you with a staple remover.”

The product

So what Ripcord actually sells is pretty rare, Fielding says. You pay for the storage of your files in their cloud system, per month. That fee includes the labor of digitizing it, including a partnership with FedEx to actually bring the files to the Ripcord facility in Hayward, a short drive from San Francisco. 

It doesn’t replace humans, says Fielding, since customers still set the desired organization of the digitized files themselves. It just automates the repetitive tasks of removing the staples, scanning them, making sure they were the right files, giving them a timestamp, and so on and so forth. Once it’s in the cloud, customers can search through them, too.

The idea, Fielding says, is to remove any and all opposition to digitizing a company’s files, rather than stashing them away with an expensive document management company that doesn’t even make it easy to sift for the stuff you need. Once the documents are scanned, Ripcord recycles the paper records themselves. 

For now, it’s a corporate thing. But he sees the technology being pioneered here as a way to remove our reliance on paper, removing the need to keep killing trees by photocopying the same files over and over again. He sees it as the first step towards a broader “legacy” for Ripcord.

“Nobody was really bringing the market out of the stone ages,” says Fielding.

Project Rome for Android Update: Now with App Services Support

Project Rome developers have had a month to play with Project Rome for Android SDK (Android SDK), and we hope you are as excited about its capabilities as we are! In this month’s release, we are thrilled to bring you support for app services. Before, we offered the ability to launch a URI from an Android device onto a Windows device. However, the SDK was limited to sending a URI. With the introduction of app services, now you can easily message between Android and Windows devices.

What are App Services?

In short, app services allow your app to provide services that can be interacted with from other applications. This enables an Android application to invoke an app service on a Windows application to perform tasks behind the scenes. This blog post is focused on how to use app services between Android to Windows devices. For a deeper look at app services on Windows, go here.

Messaging Between Connected Devices

Let’s circle back to the example in the original blog post. Paul is an app developer that has integrated the Android SDK into his app. He had created his Contoso Music App, giving users the ability to launch the app across devices, without skipping a beat. That experience was enabled using the RemoteLaunch APIs. It has been a great feature for his app. Paul has an Android phone and listens to music while he goes out for a run. When he gets home, he can easily launch the app on his Xbox—with surround sound speakers—to continue playing with a higher quality sound.

As Paul moves about the home he often finds it frustrating that he has to go back to the Xbox to control the music. On a typical day he loads a playlist but finds himself jumping around from song to song, depending on his mood. This is where app services comes in.

Now, Paul can add the ability to control the music app running on his Xbox from his Android phone. This works very well for Paul because he’s always carrying his phone with him, so it’s much more convenient than having to go to the Xbox every time he wants to change the song.  Once the Android app establishes an AppServiceClientConnection, messaging can flow between devices.

Here’s a look at the Android SDK app services in code.

First, you must discover devices, using RemoteSystemDiscovery for the connectionRequest:


// Create a RemoteSystemDiscovery object with a Builder
RemoteSystemDiscovery.Builder discoveryBuilder;

// Implement the IRemoteSystemDiscoveryListener to be used for the callback
discoveryBuilder = new RemoteSystemDiscovery.Builder().setListener(new IRemoteSystemDiscoveryListener() {
    @Override
    public void onRemoteSystemAdded(RemoteSystem remoteSystem) {
        Log.d(TAG, "RemoveSystemAdded = " + remoteSystem.getDisplayName());
        devices.add(new Device(remoteSystem));        
    }
});

// Start discovering devices
startDiscovery();
	 

Second, establish an AppServiceClientConnection. The IAppServiceClientConnectionListener handles the status of the connection, while the IAppServiceResponseListener handles the response to the message.

AppServiceClientConnection


// Create an AppServiceClientConnection
private void connectAppService(Device device) {
        _appServiceClientConnection = new AppServiceClientConnection(APP_SERVICE,
            APP_IDENTIFIER,
            new RemoteSystemConnectionRequest(device.getSystem()),
            new AppServiceClientConnectionListener(),
            new AppServiceResponseListener());

AppServiceClientConnection callback


// Implement the IAppServiceClientConnectionListener used to callback  
// the AppServiceClientConnection 
private class AppServiceClientConnectionListener implements IAppServiceClientConnectionListener {

	// Handle the cases for success, error, and closed connections
        @Override
        public void onSuccess() {
            Log.i(TAG, "AppService connection opened successful");            
        }

        @Override
        public void onError(AppServiceClientConnectionStatus status) {
            Log.e(TAG, "AppService connection error status = " + status.toString());
        }

        @Override
        public void onClosed() {
            Log.i(TAG, "AppService connection closed");            
        }
    }
	 

AppServiceClientResponse callback


// Implement the IAppServiceResponseListener used to callback  
// the AppServiceClientResponse
private class AppServiceResponseListener implements IAppServiceResponseListener() {
    @Override
    public void responseReceived(AppServiceClientResponse response) {
        AppServiceResponseStatus status = response.getStatus();

        if (status == AppServiceResponseStatus.SUCCESS)
        {
            Bundle bundle = response.getMessage();
            Log.i(TAG, "Received successful AppService response");

            String dateStr = bundle.getString("CreationDate");

            DateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat(DATE_FORMAT);
            try {
                Date startDate = df.parse(dateStr);
                Date nowDate = new Date();
                long diff = nowDate.getTime() - startDate.getTime();
                runOnUiThread(new SetPingText(Long.toString(diff)));
            } catch (ParseException e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
        }
        else
        {
            Log.e(TAG, "Did not receive successful AppService response);
        }
    }
}
	 

Xamarin

That’s not all: we have updated the Xamarin for Android sample with app services, too.

From the sample, these two functions are used in the RemoteSystemActivity class to connect, and then ping, via app services.

AppServiceClientConnection


private async void ConnectAppService(string appService, string appIdentifier, RemoteSystemConnectionRequest connectionRequest)
{
    // Create AppServiceClientConnection
    this.appServiceClientConnection = new AppServiceClientConnection(appService, appIdentifier, connectionRequest);
    this.id = connectionRequest.RemoteSystem.Id;

    try
    {
        // OpenRemoteAsync returns a Task<AppServiceClientConnectionStatus>
        var status = await this.appServiceClientConnection.OpenRemoteAsync();
        Console.WriteLine("App Service connection returned with status " + status.ToString());
    }
    catch (ConnectedDevicesException e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Failed during attempt to create AppServices connection");
        e.PrintStackTrace();
    }
}
	 

SendMessageAsync


private async void SendPingMessage()
{
    // Create the message to send
    Bundle message = new Bundle();
    message.PutString("Type", "ping");
    message.PutString("CreationDate", DateTime.Now.ToString(CultureInfo.InvariantCulture));
    message.PutString("TargetId", this.id);

    try
    {
        var response = await this.appServiceClientConnection.SendMessageAsync(message);
        AppServiceResponseStatus status = response.Status;

        if (status == AppServiceResponseStatus.Success)
        {
            // Create the response to the message
            Bundle bundle = response.Message;
            string type = bundle.GetString("Type");
            DateTime creationDate = DateTime.Parse(bundle.GetString("CreationDate"));
            string targetId = bundle.GetString("TargetId");

            DateTime nowDate = DateTime.Now;
            int diff = nowDate.Subtract(creationDate).Milliseconds;

            this.RunOnUiThread(() =>
            {
                SetPingText(this as Activity, diff.ToString());
            });
        }
    }
    catch (ConnectedDevicesException e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Failed to send message using AppServices");
        e.PrintStackTrace();
    }
}
