Acer to Further Grow the Academe Market

ads here too


Local IT giant Acer Philippines, Inc. continues its thrust towards the further growth and development of the academic sector, one of its strongest partners in the market.

At the recently held Acer Academy Education Summit 2016, Acer invited representatives from various schools who are existing and potential clients. Acer showcased its various products such as desktops, laptops, tablets, monitors and projectors that cater to the education sector, to provide modern teaching equipment for today’s 21st Century classrooms.

The Acer Academy Education Summit is one of the events under the Acer Academy Program. It was designed to help create the digital classroom of the future and also help educational institutions in the country develop and strengthen their IT infrastructure through the use of efficient and innovative hardware and classroom solutions.

According to Carren Garcia, Channel Sales Manager for Commercial Business of Acer Philippines, being partners of Acer in the program entails several benefits to the school and the students. Some of those benefits, Garcia said, include Acer’s sponsorship of school events and activities.

“We also provide school faculty and IT personnel free training, campus tours, and their students are prioritized under Acer’s internship program. As an Acer Academy member, they get first crack at on-the-job or even possible hiring opportunities.”
The Acer Academy Program started back in 2012 with only 10 members, which include a good mix of public and private schools such as Ateneo de Manila University, Adamson University, De La Salle University and University of Santo Tomas, among others. As of the first half of this year, there are already 80 members under the program, with some coming from as far as Mindanao. “We expect the number to grow further to 100 high schools and universities by the end of the year. Still, desktops continue to be the top purchase options for these partners for use in their computer laboratories and even for administration office,” Garcia added.

The academe also remains to be a major contributor to Acer’s Commercial Business Group, according to Garcia, in terms of sales, contributing 18 percent to become one of Acer’s Top 3 vertical markets. “Acer continues to be the top brand that caters to the education market and perhaps we are the only brand that is heavily involved in education.”

During the summit, Acer invited several guests that include Yvette Watson, Productivity Specialist from Microsoft Philippines, who talked about the use of Microsoft solutions in today’s high-tech classrooms; Paul Matthew Jeremy Soriano of Optimus Innovative Technologies Corp. and Sandra Lovenia, Director, Information Technology Resource Management Office, Ateneo de Manila University, one of Acer’s partner-schools in Acer Academy.

ads here too


Just got curious how a smartphone can saves lives and was amazed that today's technology really made smartphone a lot smarter. Introduced to the public was the Figgers F1 Cell Phone dubbed as "The Life Saver" is a invention created Freddie Figgers who is a known inventor and a holder of 4 US patents and one of the youngest Americans to own and operate an independent, U.S. based telecommunications company that is regulated by the Federal Communication Commission.

Why did Figgers invented this? Well, we all know that distracted driving is one of the leading causes of road accidents. Furthermore, because text messaging requires visual, manual and cognitive attention from the driver, it is one of the most alarming distractions for drivers. Based in a statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (not locally but at the other side of the globe) revealed that there are drivers ranging from 15-19 years old were involved in fatal crashes, 15 percent of the distracted drivers were distracted by the use of cell phones.

Okay here's what they say about this cell phone, it is said to be the most powerful and safest cell phone in the market today. According to a press release the Figgers F1 Cell phone with its advanced features such as storage capacity, talk time, battery and high mega pixel front and rear facing camera then added with its dynamic safety features is more likely an iPhone 6s Plus competitor.

The safety feature of Figgers F1 Cell phone that makes it save lives is that it has a built in mechanism that prevents texting and driving. The F1 detects motion when the car is in motion over 10 miles per hour on the driver side of a USA vehicle and puts it into a safe mode; thereby disabling any and all distractions while driving all this without missing a single call.


When asked about his motivation for creating this cell phone, Figgers said: "Cell phone use, especially texting, has become so ingrained in society that far too many people ignore laws banning the practice. Currently, 46 states prohibit cell phone use while driving. If laws are not changing these behaviors then why can't technology? Police say that even with laws, teenagers, in particular, are texting while driving and causing tragic accidents, "I mean all the laws in the world can't change human behavior but the Figgers F1 can. That's why I invented the Figgers F1 Cell Phone."

The Figgers F1 Cell Phone is available from Figgers Communication Inc for $399.99. The company also offers Cellular service along with the F1 for $50 per month: this includes unlimited 4G LTE Data, unlimited talk, and text on Figgers nationwide coverage network along with unlimited texting to over 100+ countries all included in this one price.
