The data is further divided into 10 price bands. The study also provides detailed forecasts of market size through 2008.

Additionally, the analysis of the commercial systems and server market should help answer the following key market questions:

What are the defining characteristics of the commercial systems and server market in South Africa?

How will current and future economic conditions likely affect this market's development?

What are the areas of highest penetration and growth potential within the server market by operating system, price band, and CPU type?

How is the global rivalry between Microsoft and Unix being played out in the South African market? Where does Linux stand?

Can vendors of proprietary environments capture new applications and growth on their platforms?

What application segments are driving growth and what platforms are best positioned to gain in this evolving market?

Who is gaining share in the South African server market?

Where are the greatest opportunities for future growth?

For users looking for something a little more business and with an added feature, the Griffin Journal is a great product. This case allows the iPad to be carried like a personal notebook. It contains a hard shell for great protection and can be used as stand, perfect for typing and viewing videos.

The Gear4 CoverStand is perfect for those who want all-around protection. This case covers both the back and the front of the iPad Air. The case features a magnetic closure and a folding front piece to allow use as a stand in two different ways.

Finally if only Apple will do, Mobile Fun are also taking pre-orders on the new iPad Air Smart case, available in leather. The case fits the device perfectly and built in magnets mean it activates the sleep function of the iPad. The case can be folded in a number of ways, allowing users to get the perfect set up.

Calico: A New Player in the Anti-Aging Community Article Released Today

(PRWEB) October 23, 2013

Extending the human life span is a goal as old as science itself, and now there’s a new player in the game: Calico. In September 2013, Google’s Larry Page announced the tech giant’s investment in a brand new health and wellness initiative called Calico, short for California Life Company. Calico’s focus? Taking on the health issues associated with age-related diseases — and challenging the aging process itself.

Headed by former Genentech CEO and current Apple chairman Arthur Levinson, Calico represents a collaborative relationship calico between cutting-edge digital technology, genomics, medical research and big data, a marriage that Forbe’s John Nosta describes as “hyper-life.” When announcing Google’s investment, Page stated that the project’s goal was, in part, to improve millions of lives by ameliorating the effects of illness and aging though, in Page’s words, “moonshot thinking around healthcare and biotechnology.”

With this leap into the anti-aging area, Google and Calico join the ranks of other notable organizations that have been revolutionizing aging and longevity science, such as the non-profit SENS Research Foundation and the Methuselah Foundation, both funded in part by Paypal co-founder Peter Thiel and Arizona entrepreneur Jason Hope. In an op-ed for TIME Magazine, Aubrey de Grey — biomedical gerontologist and Chief Science Officer of the SENS Research Foundation – was optimistic about Calico, stating that the new venture “is not the end, nor even the beginning of the end, but it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

SiberName explains the importance of having a website today.

Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) November 11, 2013

SiberName (, one of the most trusted Canadian resources for domain registration and web hosting, explains the importance of having a website today.

Todays companies use their websites as windows through which much of the world will come to understand their services and brand identity. In contrast to traditional e-commerce sites or portals, modern corporate websites provide a broad range of information about themselves, their products and related services to the public. As a result, when a small business registers a domain name, its website becomes the most important communication channel it possesses.

The website levels the playing field; making it possible for smaller businesses to compete directly with larger corporations. In fact, a smaller business with a well-equipped and user-friendly website will have a competitive advantage over the larger corporations that are running websites that are of poor quality.

The corporate website today has turned into a virtual store front that businesses are utilizing to display a broad range of information about themselves, their products and related services. Nowadays, there is very little that cannot be sold over the internet. More than twenty million shoppers are going online, purchasing everything from books to computers to cars and even real estate. People refer to local business websites for information prior to making a purchase, making the website first chance a business will have at making a positive impression on a potential buyer or client. After they visit the company website, the new prospective clients learn more about the business and this may ultimately help convert more leads to sales.

Through Search Engine Optimization, a website can be found when a prospective client is actually looking for the product or service that the business offers. It then becomes easier for a smaller business to make a sale to a prospect that wants or needs what they offer. Other mechanisms a small company can do on its website to boost business, is to add an online shopping cart; accumulate a contact list through a newsletter sign-up, or they can educate potential clients by producing videos or blogs.

When a website is well designed and full of rich content, this will project the business as having a high level of professionalism while also promoting and strengthening the company brand. You can read the complete article through SiberName Blog.

“Vicious Things,” the Highly Anticipated Sophomore Album by Blues Guitarist, Voo Davis – Available Today

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 10, 2013

"Vicious Things" is the highly anticipated sophomore album by blues guitarist, Voo Davis, that will leave you enveloped in emotion, is scheduled for release today, September 10th, 2013. Voos previous basement-recorded release, A Place For Secrets, spent seven months running through the AMA & Roots Music Report charts respectively, while surprising the Blues/Americana music scene with an overdriven acoustic mix of slide based guitar songs. After taking up the guitar at age 19, Voo began playing solo gigs at only 21 years old; he has since performed with Chicago Blues legends Eddie "The Chief" Clearwater and Chico Chism, among others. A former member of the band Loose Change, Voo is known for his aggressive and dynamic stage presence and classical technical abilities. Nicknamed Voo due to his vast knowledge and ability to play Jimi Hendrix on command, Voo lists his namesake along with Buddy Guy, Martin Sexton, and R.L. Burnside as vital influences.

Vicious Things is a fresh, new collection of songs arriving just a year after the release of Voos highly acclaimed debut. Lyricism is of equal importance to the music on Davis new album, presenting a true artistic talent as he seamlessly combines both. The songs are able to speak for themselves in an organic way, and the result is a reflection of numerous styles, personalities, and instruments. With Vicious Things, the award winning, former blues circuit guitarist has moved from the basement to two of Louisianas top recording studios--Studio in the Country and Dockside Studio--and added four other Chicago based musicians: Stephen Bores (Bass/Ukelele/Vocals), Calvin Conway (Harmonica/Fiddle/Vocals), Jon Wade (Keys), and Mike Gock (Percussion).

Vicious Things, produced by Voo, himself, was recorded on analog Neve boards. No autotune, no big computer fixes, just humans making sounds-- a trait that Voo learned on the road with WC Handy award winner Eddie King. With a passion for lyrics and a gift for creating emotion with a guitar, Voo Davis encompasses all that is right about an independent musician in todays field of millions. Vicious Things brings genres together instead of separating them into a neat package of similarity. Its a real album in a time of one song releases.
