Huge Android Fan - XOOM Tablet

Aaron Jones's picture

I think the XOOM tablet is fantastic. I know it is dated and with new offerings like the Nexus 7 available, it can appear a little... antiquated. However, I really do recommend a tablet to any one who conducts business or spends time in the field instead of an office. A sturdy bag and a tablet can increase productivity and I constantly get compliments from clients when we sit down and I demonstrate web technology on my tablet.

You can't go wrong with the sheer geek-chic that comes with a suit, tie, and an android tablet.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
