90% of Americans Reserve a Better Bottle of Wine to Celebrate According to [yellow tail] Reserve

White Plains, NY (PRWEB) April 15, 2010

Most adult Americans (90%) upgrade their wine selection when a premium moment calls, according to a new survey conducted by [yellow tail] Reserve. On the shelves this spring with new packaging, [yellow tail] Reserve, the premium offering from [yellow tail] wine, was created for consumers to take it up a notch and enjoy life's little special occasions.

What is the right occasion to trade-up for a better bottle? A date night at home with that special someone, a toast to TGIF, dinner with the in-laws, or an intimate gathering of close friends.

The survey also identified specific moments when a better bottle is uncorked. Three-quarters of Americans (74%) reserve a better bottle of wine for having friends over for dinner, while six-in-ten (59%) purchase a more premium wine to show gratitude, and half (50%) stow away special wine for a vacation.

"Many wine drinkers have chosen [yellow tail] wines for everyday occasions, but [yellow tail] Reserve gives them an option for when a special moment calls," said Francois Magnant, Senior Brand Manager for [yellow tail] Reserve at W.J. Deutsch. "These survey results show consumers upgrade their wine when the occasion warrants and a premium offering like [yellow tail] Reserve fits the bill."

When the time comes to purchase a better bottle of wine to celebrate, Americans don't break the bank, according the [yellow tail] Reserve survey. Price is the overwhelming factor in choosing a wine, with 47 percent citing it first, while cuisine (36%) and recommendations (30%), were second and third in the decision making process. Nearly half (43%) of wine drinkers will most often pay between $ 10.00 and $ 15.00 for a bottle of wine to celebrate a special occasion at home. Only 14% of Americans spend $ 20.00 or more for a better bottle. [yellow tail] Reserve's suggested retail price is $ 11.99.

"For price and quality, [yellow tail] Reserve offers wine drinkers a perfect accompaniment to enjoy a nice night at home or a special gathering," said Magnant. "The grapes in [yellow tail] Reserve originate from Australia's finest wine growing regions, offering a complex and expressive flavor that allows consumers to truly taste the difference."

Since its launch in 2003, [yellow tail] Reserve has garnered high levels of praise for its superior wine quality including, including a number of 'Best Value' nods from Wine Spectator* and 'Best Buy' credits from Wine Enthusiast**. [yellow tail] Reserve currently offers five varietals, in 750ml: Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio.

New Study Finds Americans Jumping Ahead in Energy Efficiency

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 11, 2013

The United States has made great strides in becoming more energy efficient and is well positioned for future growth in the sector, according to consumers and the industry in a new study from the Rexel Foundation for a better energy future, a recently launched charitable initiative founded by Rexel, a global leader in the professional distribution of products and services for the energy world.

Published today, the Rexel Foundation energy efficiency study found that 75% of US consumers have made energy efficiency improvements to their homes in the last five years, ahead of the UK (68%) and France (70%) and just slightly behind Germany (76%). In addition, 70% of US consumers plan to make energy efficiency improvements in the near future and an overwhelming majority (93%) stated that they are convinced that investing in energy efficiency products will enable them to reduce their energy bills.

The views of electrical contractors support this trend with 97% confirming an increased awareness with regard to wasting energy among their client base, as well as increased knowledge of energy efficiency products and solutions (89%). They also said their clients have become more conscious of the return on investment (87%) and the depletion of natural resources (79%). These numbers were statistically higher than in the other European countries. An overwhelming majority of electrical contractors surveyed (79%) also felt that that the United States is advanced in adopting energy efficiency versus the other countries polled (namely the UK, France and Germany).

However, this study also shows that despite perceptions of progress in energy efficiency, there are several key obstacles that are holding US consumers back from making further improvements. While US consumers agree that investing in energy efficiency will save them money, for 59% the cost and other financial considerations are holding them back, followed by renters who feel the investment is not worth their while (22%). But not knowing who to turn to for advice (18%), the overwhelming choice of products (18%) and the complexity of products (11%) were also cited as major obstacles.

Chris Hartmann, Executive Vice President & CEO, Rexel Holdings USA, said: The Rexel Foundations energy efficiency survey highlights that, as a country, we are ready to make meaningful improvements to our homes and lifestyles in order to become a more energy efficient society.

However, there are still areas where the industry needs to work together to help consumers increase their rate of adoption. Even simple and relatively low cost solutions such as switching to LED can make a significant difference for renters and homeowners alike. By raising awareness of the benefits, providing a simplified product offering and advising consumers on the right solutions for them, we can ease the financial obstacles cited in this study and make progress in energy efficiency.

The Rexel Foundation Study in Focus

A Strong Desire to Change

With 70% of consumers planning to make energy efficiency improvements to their homes in the next five years, the energy efficiency sector holds great potential. Solutions that ranked the most popular among respondents include LED lighting, insulation (window, wall, etc.), occupancy sensors and energy efficient heating and air conditioning systems.

Data also shows that todays younger generations of consumers are more likely to make such improvements. It appears that those aged 18-34, who have grown-up in a world embedded in technology, are more comfortable utilizing todays newer, more technologically advanced products and solutions. Excluding energy audits and passive measures such as upgrading insulation of windows, walls and roofs, the age demographic of people planning active technology driven energy efficient upgrades in the next five years can be split as follows:

Forgot Your Password? Password Genie Makes it Magically Appear: New Password Management Software Revolutionizes the Way Americans Secure Personal Information Online

Forgot Your Password? Password Genie Makes it Magically Appear: New Password Management Software Revolutionizes the Way Americans Secure Personal Information Online











Cedar Rapids, IA (PRWEB) October 18, 2010

Anyone who has ever forgotten a computer password is familiar with the "Forgot Your Password?" button on the sign-in page. Now, there's a secure and convenient way for computer users to save, store and recall all their passwords instantly. Password Genie™ is management software that users can download on up to five computers and can be shared with unlimited users.

"Password Genie is a sophisticated software program in a growing field called password management," said Robert O'Dell, President and CEO of Security Coverage, the developer of Password Genie. "This type of management is becoming more important since it is estimated that the average computer user maintains more than one dozen passwords that today require more complexity with character variations and length to meet security demands."

According to scientists from Georgia Tech Research Institute and quoted in a recent HelpNet Security article, the growing number of processors and their increasing processing power on graphic cards will soon make 7-character passwords "hopelessly inadequate" to withstand brute force attacks. It's only a matter of time before online services begin requiring 12-character passwords, further complicating consumers' digital lifestyles.

Ideal for consumers, small office and home office users of all ages, Password Genie is easy to install and use: 1. Visit http://www.mypasswordgenie.com, 2. Install Password Genie and create a Master Account, 3. Sign into your protected websites the first time, 4. Password Genie automatically will provide a prompt to save logins on-the-fly, 5. Every time consumers visit their protected websites, Password Genie will automatically sign them in.

The program adapts to users' online habits and securely captures passwords while they move from site to site. The software can be customized easily to meet each user's preferences. "Every user can create his or her own settings and security levels," said Jennifer Rudolf, Password Genie Product Manager. "Additionally, at any time, each user can view and manage all passwords from a single program, and even across multiple computers."

The program uses 256 bit AES encryption for the local password storage and 128 bit SSL encryption when synchronizing between computers, both very trusted and safe encryption methods. It saves all usernames and passwords so consumers never have to write them down again. Password Genie is supported by 24/7 customer support if issues should occur and there is also a secure backup service ensuring that if anything happens Password Genie will recover all of the user's saved passwords.
