Technology Associates Inc.(remembered)
The EternaLight assets of Technology Associates, Inc.
have been transfered to EternaLights, LLC. All orders and services issues will be handled by them.

In 1992, Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson founded Technology Associates. In 1994, their partnership incorporated under the name of Technology Associates, Inc. Between 1993 and 2000, Technology Associates successfully operated a small chain of computer stores in the Reno/Sparks area which sold and serviced computers.
Technology Associates was also one of the founding investors in Great Basin Internet Services (GBIS), Northern Nevada's Largest Independent internet service provider. In 1998, TA divested itself of GBIS. In 2000, TA divested itself of it's retail stores to pursue manufacturing of the EternaLight flashlight and other related and unrelated products developed by Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson. In 2007, the organization formerly known as Technology Associates, Inc., founded by Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson in 1992 ceased to exist.

This site is still a functioning sales platform for the EternaLight products manufactured and sold by EternaLights, LLC. However, the remainder of the site remains as it was in it's finality before the closing of Technology Associates, Inc.

Today Mr. Bryson is privately employed as a Software Engineer. Mr. Hoops is privately employed in a manufacturing company as it's CTO. After working together since 1990, through their various projects and partnerships, Mr. Hoops and Mr. Bryson are still best friends and continue to explore new opportunities together.

  • Alex Hanna - Octer 8, 2001
    Dear Technology Associates:
    My name is Alex Hanna, I am a pilot at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. I often fly at night which, by law, I am required to carry a flashlight. I also need light to preflight the aircraft (which usually takes 20 to 30 minuets) to be sure it is safe to fly. Before I purchased your eternaLight, I had to replace my mini-Mag's batteries once a week and the light was never really good enough to see all I needed to. eternaLight took care of that problem, but the true test came about a year ago. I was returning home from a 2 hour cross-country flight when out of nowhere the cabin and panel lights cut out. (Later found out there was a short in the lighting systems) I reached for my Mini-mag, which I still carried because I didn't know how well the eternaLight would be too bright in the cabin. The Mini-Mag was, not surprisingly, dead. So, I went for the eternaLight. At first the light was a little too bright, so it was a good thing that it had a dimming function. To make a long story short, eternaLight Saved my life and it was WELL worth the money I paid for it. If you are a pilot, you might as well add the eternaLight to your equipment list because it is an absolute MUST HAVE! Thanks Technology Associates, and eternaLight!

    ***Upon my question asking Alex if we may use his letter, he responded:

    Dear Tom, Absolutely you may use what I wrote. I would be honored to promote such a great product. I am not too sure as to what kind of verification information you need but If it is name, phone, and address, I would be more than happy to provide it. Alex Hanna (XXX)-XXX-XXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Daytona Beach, FL XXXXX To tell you a little more about what happened. This happened while I was in training to be a pilot. A pilot that flew at the same airport that I did offered to take me on a cross country flight. We knew we were going to be coming back at night and I told him that I had two flashlights so he did not to bring his. And then we had the lighting failure. Now as for the actual flight records, because I could not log what is call Pilot In Command time, nor could I log training time (I wasn't a pilot yet, and he wasn't my instructor) I didn't keep a record of the flight, or the problem. I also do not know where the records of the flight are, since I moved to Florida. But I assure you it did happen. if you need any other verification information just call or E-mail me again with your request. Thanks for taking the time to write back and for thinking of using what I wrote.
