NAMM logoThe 2010 NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) show runs from January 14-17 at the Anaheim Convention Center.  CRE is proud to be the official computer rental supplier to exhibitors at the NAMM show. Many firms will also avail themselves of  plasma rentals to present their products and services in gorgeous, wide-screen color.

The NAMM Show starts each morning with music and the informative NAMM University Breakfast Sessions. The theme for both days of seminars is the “new normal” that has been created by the economic upheavals of 2008-2009. It’s always “normal” to put your best face forward, which is why exhibitors rely on interactive kiosk rentals to get the message out — and get contact information in return.

Live, up-to-the-minute Web coverage of the NAMM Show will be streamed at the NAMM Web site. You can also follow the NAMM Show on the group’s Twitter page. CRE is proud to be affiliated with NAMM.

LabAutomation2010

Lab Automation 2010 LogoThe Association for Laboratory Automation’s annual conference — LabAutomation2010 at the Palm Springs Convention Center from January 23 to 27 — brings together engineers, scientists and other professionals from all over the globe. A wide range of industries are represented at the world’s premier lab automation event, including security, energy and petrochemicals, agriculture, clinical diagnostics and pharmaceuticals.

Key educational sessions concern detection and separation, micro- and nano-technologies, and informatics. Over 400 booths will showcase the top automation technologies, a perfect job for a LCD monitor rental from CRE.

Networking opportunities abound, of course, as educators, researchers and manufacturers discuss the hot topics of the day. It’s a perfect place to bring a Motion Computing Tablet PC rental to take notes, get names and addresses, and access the interactive conference schedules and maps via WiFi (saving many a tree in so doing).

SPIE, the International Society for Optical Engineering

SPIE Photonics West LogoSPIE, the International Society for Optical Engineering, presents SPIE Photonics West at San Francisco’s Moscone Convention Center from January 23 to 28, featuring four symposia and access to 3,600+ research papers.

The symposia will cover biomedical optics, lasers and applications, micro- and nano-fabrication, and integrated optoelectronic devices. Photonics West covers all the bases, from product roll-outs that save you money to free courses that offer training and a healthy dose of “value added.” Attendees can use laptop rentals to stay connected while exhibitors display their wares in various ways (including a 61″ plasma  rental available from CRE Rentals).

The SPIE event actually comprises two separate, world-class exhibitions — with a total of 1100+ exhibitors — at SPIE Photonics West, North America’s essential photonics and laser exhibition, and SPIE BiOS, the world’s largest biomedical optics exhibition.

For these events, or others like them, remember that CRE is your one-stop shop for computers and audiovisual gear. From audience response system rentals to the latest laptops and office equipment, we have whatever you need, and not just to “make the scene ” — but to make the scene brighter and better for your business.

Review - Computer & Technology News 2009

This past year, for computer lovers, was as good as it gets. While every year sees new inventions and further refinements of existing products, 2009 was a landmark year in many ways. From the new MacBook models that CRE now rents to new display technology and “wireless everything,” 2009 was a big year.

Laptops have gotten more powerful while getting lighter. Leaving aside the new netbooks, subject of a future blog, the laptop sector has made big strides in power, heat dissipation, battery life, displays, and connectivity. The year started off with dual-core processors limited to the MacBook Pro laptop rental and PCs, and ended with quad-core processors available at the high end of some lines.

Desktops have changed in terms of power and ports. Apple dropped the original FireWire 400 connector for FireWire 800 (backward compatible with an adapter). USB is king of the hill for connections, with USB 3.0 right around the corner promising another serious speed bump. Ethernet? Faster. Phone modems? Disappearing. Hard drive capacities are into the terabyte (TB) range and no one gets a PC with just “a gig of RAM” anymore. Even low-end PCs now come with 2-4GB of RAM. Powerhouses like CRE’s quad- and eight-core HP computer rental can have up to 32GB.

LCD Displays – Seeing is believing

Computer users can thank display manufacturers for their less-strained eyes. The LCD and LED-backlit monitors look better, use less power and emit less radiation. Plasma monitor (rentals) are still tops in the largest sizes, while the Apple Cinema Display 24-inch LED monitor is what every post-production pro wants under the tree this year.

Look, Mom, no wires on technology rentals

Yes, it was a “wireless” year, for sure, and not just in terms of Web browsing at the coffee shop. The mouse, your phone, the printer, your TV – everything is hooking up with everything else by radio, Bluetooth, WiFi and (it seems) smoke signals, too. It’s not just  tablet PC rentals that provide portability with connectivity. Your phone, its headset and your office all-in-one have all lost their electronic umbilical cords. This coming year, watch for wireless recharging of these devices.

If you want to know what else to watch for in 2010, keep checking our blog. We will  feature tech trends in 2010, laptop and desktop guides, a netbook report, gadget updates and other problem-solving, trend-spotting news. In the meantime, when you’ve got work backed up and no time to waste, remember that CRE is here to solve your problems with just the right tools.  Contact us or fill out the Quick Rental Quote, and an expert Account Executive will take good care of you. That’s what we do!

MacBook Pro rentalsThe newly upgraded, 13-inch 2.26 GHz MacBook Pro (MBP) has amassed a number of rave reviews from the experts, including an Editors’ Choice award from CNET – as well as from PCMag.com, Laptop Magazine and ComputerShopper. Reviewers credit the many internal changes, and several important cosmetic ones, for making the entry-level MBP an excellent value for new Mac users.

The base model MacBook Pro retains the classy, aluminum unibody and the slick multi-touch trackpad of its predecessor. The positive additions include a SecureDigital memory card slot, full-size backlit keyboard, a FireWire 800 port, a color-enriched display and a permanent (non-removable) battery good for up to seven hours on a charge. These macintosh laptops are faster, have more ports and offer a longer-lasting battery!

Mid-range and top of line MacBook Pros

One rung up the MBP ladder is the 13-inch MacBook Pro with a 2.53 GHz processor, above which there are 15- and 17-inch models available with CPUs up to 3.06GHz. All MBP models have a 1066 MHz frontside bus, 3MB of shared L2 cache (as much as 6MB for the 15- and 17-inchers) and run applications faster than ever. When you choose to rent a MacBook Pro or  iMac rental, you can be assured that you’re getting the state-of-the-art in desktops and notebooks.

The basic graphics subsystem is a power-saving NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, offering integrated graphics processing for solid, everyday performance with long battery life – the best choice for an MBP to rent for “cruising” conventions and conferences. The 17-inch MBP and certain 15-inch models have the NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT discrete graphics board, offering powerful performance for graphically demanding work.

Powerful, colorful (and green)

The MacBook Pro’s glossy LED-backlit widescreen display has 60 percent greater color gamut than previously, for richer and brighter colors. Everything you see – including the display itself – is spectacularly clear, with performance that is solid. With its seamless glass enclosure, this display is strong, durable, power efficient, mercury- and arsenic-free – and greener than ever.

Every MacBook Pro has a large hard drive, up to 500 GB, or you can opt for a 128 or 256 GB solid-state drive (SSD). The MacBook Pro also supports up to 8 GB of high-speed RAM, has the iSight webcam and a microphone built in, and ups the wireless ante to 802.11n for even faster communications. There are two USB 2.0 ports (three on the 17-inch model), a FireWire 800 port for speedy peripherals and a Mini DisplayPort that can easily power the new Apple LED Cinema Display.

Apple didn’t forget the entry-level MacBook laptop, either, giving it a unibody of its own (plastic, not aluminum), a new battery technology and a few other tweaks. Try MacBook rentals for an upcoming corporate event.

Curious about the new Macs and what they can do for your company? Talk to one of CRE’s expert Account Executives today – send an e-mail, make a call, fill out a Quick Rental Quote form – and find out everything you need to know about the new Mac laptops. You can also read our round-up of the latest Mac desktop computers, as well as an overview of other new Apple technology.

December 10th, 2009

With the pace of technological change seeming to accelerate all the time, how can SMBs (Small and Medium-sized Businesses) hope to stay current? It’s not just a matter of getting the latest equipment. You also have to keep your employees updated, trained and equipped. It’s not easy, but online education of various kinds may help you.

There are companies that run well-structured, highly organized online schools, and you might want to look into these. However, there are also many low- and no-cost ways to keep your employees up to date. If you work in digital media, with audio and video applications like Final Cut or Vegas—on powerful quad- and eight-core desktop computers like the Mac Pro or an H-P XW 8400 workstation—then you already know how much time it takes to stay current.

Training ClassFor your other employees, perhaps working with continuously upgraded software like office applications and operating systems, you can save money by locating some free tutorials online. Get a Macintosh and/or PC desktop like CRE rents, set it up in a spare office or corner of the break room, and establish a training schedule. This way none of your regular workflow is interrupted and you can upgrade skills without downgrading your firm’s productivity.

Use it or lose it?

Remember, too, that the software packages you’ve invested in usually come with tutorials, online help files, sample documents and other training aids. It may be that you are well covered for software training without knowing it. In that case, extend your horizons a bit and you will discover that there is as much, or more, business and marketing training available to help you grow and expand your company.

It should go without saying that most companies need a strong, compelling and (hopefully) original Web presence or “online strategy” in this day and age. Check out these excellent online webinars and seminars featuring search engine marketing topics that will help your organization “conquer” search.

Low-cost training/research station

One of the lesser-advertised benefits of a computer rental is training and research. In SMBs, most computers (like their users) are dedicated to certain daily tasks that are interrupted at your peril. Renting a wifi-enabled tablet PC, laptop, or desktop from CRE will keep your own assets invested in ongoing work, and allow you to keep skills updated as you rotate your computer users through a new training workstation—outfitted with free lesson plans that you’ve just learned about.

Fill out our Quick Rental Quote form now and our expert Account Executives will help you set up whatever you need to keep you on the cutting edge. Let the training begin!

December 8th, 2009

A few technological ages ago, some Web designers purposely made pages that worked best, and sometimes only, with specific browsers. Some still do. The smart ones, though, will rent a PC, a Macintosh or both from CRE, to ensure that all browsers running on both platforms display site pages correctly.

HTML5The standard tool for creating Web pages is HyperTest Markup Language, or HTML, and the version now in the works is HTML5 which will produce Web pages that will look, sound and work the same way on any browser, from desktop to mobile phone.

Splitting up the work

HTML5 does away with plug-ins for handling video, audio and interactivity. HTML5 will require that they these capabilities are on their own, built-in. Users of new Macs, like the Mac Pro rentals that CRE stocks will not be surprised to find out that Apple claims to be “almost there” with its Safari browser (the “next” version, of course). The same jobs will get done to deliver a faster, richer, multimedia Web experience, but they’re split up differently in HTML5.

Companies will be able to create Web sites that look, sound and work the same on any browser, on laptops, desktops, “net appliances” like Sony PSPs, cell phones, netbooks and anything else with a display and WiFi connection. It may take the legal eagles a while to work out licensing for the A/V formats that will be used for “universal support,” but owners of the desired formats have lots of incentive to make a deal.

Compatibility heaven

It is not just the copy on the page, the soundtrack in the background or any other single component that makes for a “user experience.” This term falls into the “greater than the sum of its parts” category, and now Web site designers, Web app developers and content providers can stop mucking around with browser incompatibilities or doing complex workarounds.

This is a particularly noteworthy advance for mobile devices, as today’s cellphones, iPods and PSP browsers offer only limited multimedia support. The iPhone’s version of Apple’s Safari browser has no Adobe Flash capability despite Flash being on just about every other platform, browser and device. This is just one of the many loose ends that need tying up before HTML5 rolls out.

Rolling, rolling, rolling

WebKit, the developer tool behind many desktop and mobile programs, is on track to be HTML5-compliant “soon,” but Microsoft says that Internet Explorer 8 will not support the “whole spec,” risking even lower market share for IE. Adobe says Apple is dragging its corporate feet in making the iPhone Flash-friendly, suggesting the Cupertino firm may have its own agenda with HTML5, too.

“Apple,” an official Adobe statement says, “has not provided the level of support required to deliver the Flash Player to the iPhone.” Chances are we will hear about Apple “coming around” soon, since the World Wide Web Consortium has announced that HTML5 is nearing its final draft. Mac folks, from vintage iBook users to those doing high-end animation work on a G5 with Kona card rental, will expect Apple to come through. Ease of use is not something users are willing to “think different” about.

If you need the latest technology equipment, request a Quick Rental Quote from CRE and they’ll make sure you get what you need.

Whether your business involves manufacturing, distribution, a profession or a service, you can build it up by creating a plan to expand your online presence.

09_11_19_SiteWe recently ran a series on Web design tips (Part 1 and Part 2), so now it’s time to put your new knowledge to good use. Even if you don’t launch a state-of-the-art site, you can help your customer service staff out big time if you put up a site with FAQs, parts manuals, solutions to common problems and perhaps an online chat page.

Don’t worry about it!

Web sites can cost a lot in both time and money. If you don’t have a large monitor, consider renting a LCD monitor (or two) so you or your designer have plenty of screen real estate to handle all the pages, menus, art and tools that need to be right at hand. It might be easier to start with something a tad less complex than a full-blown site, too, since you can “scale up” gradually.

Glamorous corporate Web sites can cost a lot to develop. Do you really have to have a site in the first place? Probably. Does it need to cost a lot? No. Web presence is going to be important to your customers, but start out easy. You can get budget hosting plans for as little as $5 a month, and most of the offers today include everything you need, including shopping carts.

If you are considering getting new software and embarking on a Web project, you might consider a computer rental (Mac and/or PC) so you can dedicate a workstation or two to the job without interfering with other work. If you anticipate having a lot of photos, audio or video material, consider some extra storage like a Xserve RAID rental. You can never have too much storage—ever!

Now go get the customers

Now, you need to drive traffic (customers) to your Web site. Let’s face it, if customers don’t know you’re there, you won’t have a business, no matter how nice your site or how great your product or service. You need to invest what you can, which will mostly be time plus whatever money you can allocate, in promoting your site and your business.

You should devise an e-mail campaign, send press releases to print publications and online services, get trade links, create a Facebook Page, use twitter, post comments on online forums and generally sing a “one note song” about what you are doing. If you need wireless laptops for a “mobile campaign,” or plasma screen rental for a digital signage program, CRE rents all sorts of technology equipment.

Whatever you need, our expert Account Executives are here to help you. You can call us, send an e-mail or fill out our Quick Rental Quote form, and the solutions you need will be on the way. That’s what we do, after all—provide the solutions that keep you going and growing.

November 12th, 2009

In “Web Design Tips Part 1,” we talked about communicating clearly with both words and images, helping your site visitors find things and employing common sense. Those of you working in both print and Web publishing know the importance of getting the colors right, too, so CRE also has advanced color laser printers for rent. Don’t take your site online without getting good color proofs of your work, and learning how to calibrate your “device chain”—computer, monitor, printer—with “Web safe” colors.

Again, you can’t just push a button and get great art automatically (no, not even on a Macintosh). You will need to study up a bit or hire some professional help. You may not realize it, but many modern desktops and laptops support two monitors right out of the box, so you should really consider one of CRE’s LCD monitor rentals to get a large-format, color-accurate view of your site for you (or your professional assistant) to work with.

Web Design Tips - Part 2

Part 1 had 10 tips. As promised, Part 2 has 15 more great tips (11 through 25) to help you create and host an effective Web site.

11. Blinking or “Times Square scrolling” text displays are completely passé, and hard to read, too.

12. Keep your navigation options easy to spot, right out in the open—and not hidden in a lot of drop-down menus.

13. Since it is faster and much more reliable, use text links for navigation.

14. Settle on a single, consistent navigation scheme. Keep it simple.

15. Don’t use “beginner” or “online interactive” Web site makers. They can be buggy, and won’t deliver consistent, standardized code. HTML is a “markup language,” after all, so the language should be understandable to all browsers…

16. …because your Web site needs to work with all popular browsers, on all platforms.

17. Always insert anchor text on links so visitors know where they’re headed, and so you get the SEO benefits.

18. If you “cloak” links and keep the user from seeing where they’re pointed, you (and your company and your site) can lose credibility.

19. Considering the spread of “popup blocking,” just forget the popup windows. Really.

20. If a link takes visitors to a PDF file, tell them so. Safari and a few other browsers will handle them internally, and well, but others will force Adobe Reader to launch.

21. Do not require people to register for your site unless it is absolutely necessary, such as for a company or legal purposes. People are hesitant to hassle with it.

22. Never—that’s “never, ever”—subscribe site visitors or e-mail correspondents without their consent. If they receive something they didn’t ask for, you’re a spammer.

23. Don’t make new browser windows open, or move or resize existing ones. Control should remain with users. That’s where it belongs.

24. Never link to blacklisted or questionable Web sites. Google, Yahoo, AOL and other large portals are getting very strict about this.

25. Ensure that visitors can search your whole Web site. Make it easy for people to find the information that they want.

Whatever business you are in, CRE has the technology you need to keep forging ahead, flattening out those bumps in the road and empowering you to meet all challenges. Whether you need our ”render farm toolbox” that includes the high-performance graphics capabilities of the 8-core Mac Pro rental, an additional 16 gig of RAM and 23″ Apple Cinema Display, or a dozen laptops for a marketing meeting, CRE has you covered. Our experience Account Executives know how to get you just the right solutions, so call, write an e-mail or fill out the Quick Rental Quote form right away for a swift, courteous reply.

November 10th, 2009

There are a few types of businesses that don’t need a Web site—really!—as well as a growing number that do business only over the Internet. Whatever business you are just starting—with a few computer rentals from CRE and a dream—you may be tasked with building a site yourself. Just how do you go about it if you’re not a design pro?

Keep it simple

World Wide WebYour site needs to communicate your business’s mission and “value propositions” clearly—and cleanly. Give visitors what they need to make the decision that you want, whether it’s to purchase a product, engage your services or donate to your nonprofit. Although Flash animations are entertaining, they are no longer cutting edge. Minimize the “eye candy.”

Whether you are testing your new company intranet with an Xserve rental, or refining the site you already have, some basic design rules will help. It is easier to warn you about common “Web site woes” than teach you good design in a couple of blog posts. We will give you 10 great tips today, and 15 more next time around, to get you thinking (then doing).

1. Some Home pages make visitors click “Enter” or “Continue” to get to the real Home page. Home should be, well, Home!

2. Don’t waste space with an array of badges, Good Housekeeping seals or other certificates. If they are important, include them on your About page.

3. Be sure to include contact information. You’d be surprised how many sites leave out the most important details, like how to reach them or store location.

4. Visitors will leave in a nanosecond if they can’t figure out, immediately, what your site is about. Tell them clearly.

5. Do not “auto play” your favorite tune. If you really do need music, put “mute” and “off” buttons in plain sight.

6. Everybody speed-reads on the Web. Use short sentences, headlines, bullet points and lists to assist readers in “finding and filtering” your site’s content.

7. Forget fancy fonts, six different typefaces or eensy-teensy 5-point type. Don’t make visitors use the zoom control (which many don’t even know about).

8. Limit the Flash animations and video clips. Pages take longer to load, and overuse can irritate people.

9. Don’t go crazy with the color scheme. Super bright or very dark colors take some skill to use correctly, so stay in the “muted middle.”

10. This is your company’s “virtual face,” so no spelling or grammatical errors are allowed. If you’re not the best writer or editor, get professional help.

Above all, don’t let the Web work worry you. Just keep your cool, do some research, look at what good sites do (and don’t do) and do your best. CRE is here to help businesses, with everything from comprehensive office equipment rentals to high-powered workstations for exacting work in science, IT, the visual arts and audio engineering—as well as your bookkeeping and e-mail, of course.

Whatever you need, from laptop to computers (including Mac Pro rentals), our expert Account Executives are here for you. You can call us, send an e-mail or fill out our Quick Rental Quote form online, and the solution is on its way.

October 30th, 2009

We are truly living in a virtual world now. Many of the best new ideas in computing and communications are technologies that transport your voice, your face, and your mouse, keyboard and touch-tone commands through cyberspace into someone else’s computer or other device. It’s all about “connectivity with control,” at least for this news cycle.

PC remote control

If you need help on your computer, it is now possible for someone at a remote location to log right onto your computer with you and even take control of your system. This is not some advanced, expensive add-on technology. It’s built right into Mac OS X’s iChat application, and is easily done in Windows Vista and the new Windows 7, as well.

This could completely change how your company maintains its PCs. Remote operators can log on to corporate workstations to perform a remote computer repair and/or ongoing maintenance—for PCs across the hall or across the country. You can also train remote employees by taking control of their screens and showing them what to do. If you want to test all of these capabilities without interrupting any ongoing work flow, consider renting iMacs from CRE. The iMac runs both Mac OS X and Windows, so you can test all the different setups and combinations.

Telephonic control

Let’s say you’ve decided to host your own Web site and/or a company intranet. Xserve RentalDuring the development and debugging period, you can rent an Xserve workgroup server and then, pair it with another high-tech Apple device—an iPhone. That’s right, an iPhone – there are  some powerful and innovative apps being developed for remote network operations.

Imagine being on the road and remotely monitoring CPU, memory, disks, uptime, load averages and more, using only your iPhone. iPhone ApplicationsIf you have the Xserve set up the right way, you will never be out of touch with it. This incredible power can be in the palm of your hand, today.

More Apple talk

New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller may have inadvertently disclosed Apple’s long-rumored tablet computer device as he was speaking to his paper’s digital media group last week. Keller was discussing his hopes of delivering the news via an assortment of online media when he said, “I’m hoping we can get the newsroom more actively involved in the challenge of delivering our best journalism in the form of Times Reader, iPhone apps, WAP, or the impending Apple Slate…”

Harvard’s Nieman Journalism Lab posted a video and transcript of Keller’s talk. Online pundits and rumormongers pounced on the errant statement as a case of “Nerdian slip” (with apologies to Freud). The Times has allegedly met with Apple executives about the future of digital media and many have guessed that such discussions touched on the possibility of delivering content to an e-reader-like device from Apple. With sales of its desktops and laptops making records every quarter, some still question whether Apple would cannibalize its own business with a netbook or tablet, even one that “thinks different.” Interested in renting a PC or Mac?

October 22nd, 2009

One of the main marketing phrases for the long-awaited Windows 7, officially released today, is, “Your PC, simplified.” This seems to parallel one of the main themes of the recent Mac OS X upgrade, Snow Leopard 10.6, which simplifies and accelerates many basic operations like starting up, opening folders and saving documents. Windows 7 is claiming better, faster ways to find and manage files, with handy tools like Jump Lists and improved taskbar previews. Computer desktop rentals available from CRE Rentals have already proven the stability and usability of both Mac and Windows for scores of customers doing every conceivable type of work, and we will continue to do so with all new OS releases.

Microsoft Windows 7 Software Logo

CRE will evaluate the Windows 7 software with its computer and laptop rental inventory to ensure that the speed improvements, a big part of the hype, translate into stable support for both 32- and 64-bit applications. Windows 7 PR releases claim it will help you take full advantage of high-end CPUs. If true, this will give businesses doing CPU-intensive work—animation, video editing and audio engineering—a compelling reason to make the transition.

Good looks, good features

Windows Vista’s signature feature, the colorful Aero environment, was a resource hog that barely worked on some early-2007 PCs promoted as “Vista-capable.” Windows 7 should perform well even on small, low-horsepower netbooks. CRE will be testing Windows 7 on its desktop and laptop rentals, but will make a measured, transparent transition and keep all modern Windows OS installs—XP, Vista and Windows 7—available for its diverse customers.

Operationally, the taskbar has been revised, and the thumbnail previews improve on Vista’s and work well even with multiple windows open for one program. The system tray offers far more user control and customizing, while User Account Control (UAC) is now usable—whereas the Vista version was so annoying that “off” was most users’ default. Another new feature, called Libraries, uses “virtual folders” to combine the contents of specified folders into a unified view. If you’re using Sony Vegas or other high-end video editing program on a powerful PC like H-P XW 8600 computer rental, this will really help keep your video clips at your fingertips.

There’s always something

Reviewers have pointed out a few disappointments. HomeGroups sounds great—it lets you share media and documents across a network—but it doesn’t let you make your own password, making you copy its 10 auto-generated characters of alphanumeric nonsense. To top it off, Microsoft takes a giant step away from interoperability by requiring all HomeGroup-connected PCs to run Windows 7. Not only is there no Mac compatibility, there isn’t even Windows compatibility. On the plus side, there should be no problem at all installing Windows 7 on an Intel Mac, like the Mac Pros, MacBooks, MacBook Pros and iMacs that CRE rents.

Windows boosters are hoping that “7″ is the lucky number that finally earns Microsoft-powered PCs parity with Macs among the creative pros. Whether you need a powerful PC, a legacy PowerMac G5 with Kona card, an Intel Mac or a special-use t0uch-screen tablet PC, CRE has you covered. Call or write our Account Executives for expert advice, or fill out the Quick Rental Quote form. At CRE, we keep you working, no matter what.

Is “7″ going to be lucky for Microsoft or not? Let us know.
