We are Rokland Technologies

It's not what you'd file under "breaking news", but we are adding the "Technologies" back to the end of our name. We were originally founded as Rokland Technologies in 2002 as the result of a merger and dropped the "Technologies" from the name, primarily because at the time we were solely a retailer of hardware and services, and not a developer.

In the last year we have made significant strides in the product development arena, particularly in the Apple Macintosh market where our RokAir Wireless-G USB adapter has captured a large market share, especially after Leopard drivers were released in March. This past summer we launched the RokN Wireless-N adapter, an 802.11n draft device that not only works with Macs, but is plug and play on Backtrack 3 and other Linux distros as well. These two items are just some of what we developed, and we haven't rested. We've got some exciting new products coming out in time for the holiday shopping season.

Because we are much more than a retailer, we felt it appropriate to add the "Technologies" to our name again. We don't expect to make the front page of CNN (or our local newspaper for that matter), but figured we might as well explain the reason behind the change.
