In an effort to provide consumers with an unrivaled, yet tailored entertainment experience that meets specific needs and preferences, VIZIO is introducing consumers to both AMD and Intel processor options for the 24" All-in-One Touch, 14" and 15.6" Thin + Light Touch models. Powered by AMD's latest  high performance A10 quad-core APU  with Radeon™ HD graphics, these models deliver strikingly rich visuals, and an immersive gaming experience, while providing the processing power ideal for serious multi-tasking. For top-of-the-line performance, models using Intel's 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core processor—featuring Intel Turbo Boost Technology—consumers get the high-performance expected from Intel to support applications that need maximum compute power, plus a boost of speed as needed.

The spring 2013 PC line-up is highlighted by the 15.6" (CT15T-B0, CT15T-B1) and 14" (CT14T-B0, CT14T-B1) versions of the Thin + Light Touch, which are on display at CES. These new models are exceptional choices for consumers looking for optimal performance in an exquisitely designed, premium PC.  Showcasing an ultra-thin profile, multi-gesture touchscreen, AMD A10 APU or Intel® Core™ i7, and improved battery life rating along with a large Full HD screen for the 15.6" and HD+ for the 14", the Thin + Light Touch performs like a desktop, but provides the convenience of mobility with an ultra-thin chassis that lets consumers take that performance with them.

Also on display at CES will be the 24" (CA24T-B0, CA24T-B1) and 27" (CA27T-B1) All-in-One Touch PCs. With stunning, Full HD 1080p displays, enhanced 2.1 audio system with subwoofer, remote control and dual HDMI inputs, the VIZIO All-in-One Touch PC delivers world-class entertainment and performance. An alluring PC with sleek lines, wireless keyboard and improved, multi-gesture touchpad, it's as beautiful as it is functional.

Rounding out the spring 2013 PC line-up is VIZIO's entry into the tablet PC category. The VIZIO 11.6" Tablet PC is powered by the AMD Z-60 APU featuring Radeon™ HD graphics, and runs Windows 8 to allow consumers to run all of their Windows-compatible software just as they would on their desktop or laptop PC. The VIZIO 11.6" Tablet PC offers the full functionality of Windows 8 in a slim ultra-portable form factor ideal for work or play.

"We're committed to consistently producing a line of premium PCs that places the wants and needs of consumers first, and the new Touch PCs are no different," said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. "The spring PC line puts the latest technologies and innovations right at the consumers' fingertips, giving them the power to easily get the most out of their PC."

Beyond the sleek design and processing power of this line, VIZIO continues to leverage its HDTV background, as all new VIZIO PCs feature brilliant picture quality, high contrast and wider viewing angles at the forefront. The expertly-tuned SRS Premium Sound HD™ audio system, a DTS technology, delivers rich audio quality to complement the superior video performance for deep, resonant sound perfect for getting the most out of music, movies, games and more.

Additionally, VIZIO increased connectivity speed by upgrading its models to the latest in Wi-Fi, 802.11ac, one of the first PC OEMs to do so. About 3 times faster than standard 802.11n¹, consumers are able to stream HD content not only faster, but smoother.

"VIZIO brings a fresh approach to personal computers. They design their products to serve the wants of their end customers, more like a consumer electronics company.  Their new Spring line-up gives consumers and partners a choice of premium entertainment experiences as well as powerful performance," said Patrick Moorhead, President and Principal Analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy.

To further ensure a premium consumer experience, VIZIO once again delivers the category's only PC line-up all equipped with Microsoft Signature for Windows. No junk ware, meticulous configuration, built-in world-class security software, and 90 days free Microsoft Signature support from Microsoft. It's an excellent Windows 8 experience on your PC.

VIZIO's new lineup will arrive this spring, with additional details to be announced at product availability. For more information about VIZIO's CES announcements visit VIZIO.com/CES.

Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
