Village Antiques at Biltmore is a unique client in that they carry a more diverse inventory of any company I have ever worked with. Finite market, but spread out all over the globe. What better way to get company and product information in the hands of those who most seek it…then the web!
Look for product listing with e-commerce functionality sooner than later.
If the adage is true that life imitates art, then what exactly is 3-D. I realize that we live in 3-D…so to speak, but 3-D films gave me a headache when I was a kid, and unfortunately they still do.
ESPN intends to launch a 3-D channel for the newly touted 3-D televisions that are on the market. Sales of these devices is mighty slim so far. 3-D films have taken off again. Popularized in the 1950′s and making various resurgences through the last five decades, 3-D has been a technology on the periphery of the film industry due to the expensive nature of production.
Three advertisers have been convinced to produce 3-D commercials for the new ESPN channel, but how far will all of this go?
Personally I think there are only so many gimmicks you can put into any one production, whether 30 seconds or 3 hours, that will make 3-D palatable.
Some may call me a technology naysayer, but let’s look at other similar technologies, such as virtual reality. By 1999 we were all supposed to be hooked up to our devices 12 hours out of a 24 hour day, living out our fantasies in virtual worlds of crime fighting, swashbuckling, and sex. What happened to that? I ‘m still game for it, especially on Mondays, but where did it go?
The government uses the heck out of it for flight simulation, combat training, and drone flights. That’s cool, but I don’t have an extra $15 million to pick up my gear to get started.
Hot Topic Enterprise Resource Planning Seminar Coming to Asheville
Asheville, NC — May 12, 2010 — CityMac Apple Specialist and Authorized Apple Service Provider will host AcctVantage ERP for a software seminar on Wednesday, May 26th, from 6PM until 8PM.
A recent survey conducted by the Enterprise Desktop Alliance cited 65% of business IT respondents saying that it costs less to troubleshoot Macs than PCs in their operation. A majority of respondents said that the cost for managing Macs was more than 20% less than PCs. The cost categories surveyed included troubleshooting, help desk calls, system configuration, user training, and supporting infrastructure, such as servers, networks, and printers.
“These types of surveys are very telling in an ever-changing business IT climate,” says Dan Beckett, founder and CEO of Beckware LLC., the maker of AcctVantage. “Though our software is functional in both Mac and PC operating systems, we do find that customers and prospects are interested in finding out about the Apple Macintosh platform as a more affordable long term option for their IT infrastructure. Providing an enterprise resource planning software solution that works so well on the Mac, provides added value to an organization that is upgrading legacy software and hardware.”
