Credence Independent Advisors Britain’s top spending tourists are Middle East Visitors

  According to ‘Visit Britain’, the national tourism agency of Britain; tourists from the Middle East are Britain’s top spending international shoppers.   The survey shows that tourists from the Middle East are twice as likely as typical visitors to buy clothes and shoes. Kuwaiti visitors rank number one in terms of spending on shopping in the UK, followed by Nigerians in second place and Saudi Arabians in third place. A visitor from Kuwait on average delivers £4,000 to the UK economy, whereas a visitor from France delivers an average of £343 to the UK economy.   According to Global Blue, which tracks spending by overseas visitors, the lead-up to Ramadan is traditionally a key holiday period for luxury retailers and hotels as tourists from the Middle East come to the UK for their annual spending spree, escaping soaring temperatures at home. As a result of which London witnessed an increase in visitors from the Middle East, just before Ramadan this year.   According to Global Blue, wealthy Middle Eastern shoppers favour luxury brands, with more than half claiming shopping to be their favourite activity when visiting the UK. This is evident from the fact that the average transaction value of Middle Eastern shoppers in 2013 was £795.   The high spending of Middle Eastern shoppers has influenced the UK luxury retailers also, with some luxury retailers, including Smythson and Temperley, offering special experiences and bespoke products designed for Middle Eastern shoppers this year.   The pre-Ramadan influx of Middle Eastern visitors has also changed the way that luxury stores do business. With Ramadan starting earlier, luxury stores now tend to start their summer discounting earlier, and opt for short, sharp, sales periods, so that new season styles are in stores when visitors from the Middle East arrive.   Even though Middle Eastern visitors spend the most when it comes to cutting edge fashion, Visit Britain found out that they don’t spend much on British food and drink.   When it comes to spending on British food and drinks; 34% of Belgians, 32% of French and 32% of Japanese visitors are most likely to buy British food and drink to take home.   In 2012 alone, international visitors spent £4.5bn in British shops, which was a quarter of total expenditure by foreign tourists that year.   Credence Independent Advisors was born from compelling opportunity in the financial services world.

I like your site. I make great use of the favorites page (with respect to hardware ordering). What would be even better is if you would let the customer add their own "standard configurations" to the site. With business trends changing spo rapidly these days it is really a time savere to be able to go to th site and just click on what I need and then just modify the quantity.

A Computer for Network, Communication and other Laboratories.

Dell,Space is more important in any laboratory because of the presence of many equipments.   If the number of equipments are minimum it will be easy to do a task in a laboratory.   For example in testing software on a microprocessor Printed Circuit Board, an emulator for the processor, a powerful computer and a dumb terminal or monitor  for user interface, are commonly needed.   Typically the software is developed and compiled on a powerful computer.   The dubugging info.  from the emulator is fed to a screen through ethernet port.   The user interface of the product being tested is done on another screen through COM port.   So, there is a need for more than one screen for testing of the microprocessor based hardware product. This is a common scene in any software-hardware testing workplace.   In  places like networking laboratory, labs that develop electronic products, labs that develop software products this computer shown in the following figure may be useful.   The software can be compiled on a screen, while debug data from emulator can be fed to another screen and another screen can be used as user interface console for the product that is being tested.   The operating system must support screen management feature for this to work.    This computer idea  is very similar to the Tektronix measurement instrument that is shown below: By taking the requirement inputs from the people working at various labs a better lab-computer product can be made. - voxmu

Cableless Desktop Computer

Dell, In old style computer the Cathode Ray Tube monitor is placed on top of the Destop Cabinet.    With the advancement in LCD technology, the monitor can be fixed in the cabinet using a swivel as shown in the figure.   Other details of this Cableless Desktop Computer are mentioned in the following figure.   This production cost of this Desktop computer will be much less without compromising performance.   In the places like in  Campus computer lab, in IT companies the cubicles, rooms where people work,  the monitor, the loudspeaker does not move much. The space behind the monitor is not used.  Many computation intensive tasks are performed in these places.  An image of a campus computer lab is shown in the following figure.   In these places cabeless desktops can be of much use. At present only a power cable to cabinet is needed. When wireless charging available then no power cables are needed.     Multi Screen LCD module can also  be used with this desktop computer. This product can  be used in home security  and small business segments ( point of sale, retails, restaurants, banks etc.) where there are few monitoring security cameras in the premises. The feed from the security cameras can be fed to the screens and people can do regular work in another screen.     This is just an idea for Desktop Cabinet.  Many other improvements can be made to this idea.  - voxmu

Channel and "PartnerStorm"?

Oct 6, 2014

Status: Acknowledged

Where are the topics on Dell and the Channel? There used to be a PartnerStorm as well. Looks like that link is now defunct. Has Dell abandoned the Channel and resellers? Would love to sell Dell to my clients, but it's difficult when they can simply go to Dell.com or call a commercial rep and get the same price that the Channel reps are offering me as a reseller.I guess in the end, that's better for Dell, but resellers that are out in the communities have reach that comercial reps back in Round Rock, OKC, etc don't have. Give us, the reseller, a few points of margin and sell to customers that use other systems because they like dealing with a local business.

Hey Dell,I have been a long time user an owner Dell products and a technical support analyst who has worked on various to equipment from various manufacturers. And has found Dell products to be my preferred vendor. But here is where I need something from you!While supporting various users in various technical and diverse fields I have found users prefer a combination of equipment when performing various tasks. I.e. desktop at home or at office. Laptop for field or remote work. In a tablet for notes meetings education in seminars and various impromptu situations where quick access to information and the ability to share is preferred. Here is what I'm looking forI need a fast powerful reliable desktop computer, that is equipped with a docking port for a laptop, laptop combination tablet. Here's the rub, I need to desktop to be able to be connected to the network office or home personal private and any and all devices connected to it the laptop not only shares with the desktop when docked but can share reliably via wireless connection wireless private connection Bluetooth or data connection. Laptop should be able to be connected to an office network home network and peripherals i.e. printers scanners various equipment via wireless wireless private Bluetooth or data connection. Data connection should also be able to be shared to desktop either to network Internet connection direct Internet connection data connection. Tablet when removed from laptop should still have a connection to all devices attached to laptop via wireless Bluetooth or data connection. Desktop laptop tablet should all work a standalone devices yet be able to sink in share among themselves. In this way my users can have a secure desktop with all information access to network and the ability to work efficiently either office or at home, the able take their laptop to a live remote location, field, or a office. Then remove tablet when necessary when roaming sites or inputting data from local locations remote to laptop. Sinking should be done when directly connected wirelessly Bluetooth or by data connection.

Sonicwall 215/215W and SonicPoints

Jun 30, 2014

2 Votes

I just found out about two significant differences when deploying SonicPoints depending if you own a 215 or 215W. Based upon the Sonicwall rep I just spoke to at Dell, he stated: 215:  (recommended)  If you plan on having a SonicPoint device or multiples, then get a firewall without wireless. 215W: Since this firewall comes with wireless built-in, you will have gaps (or temporary delays) in coverage as device(s) move between a SonicPoint and the wireless within the firewall.   Does anyone find this kind of odd?  Yet, does anyone see any type of information stating that if you deploy SonicPoints that its not recommened to get a SonicWall with built in wireless? So here hence is the question and the issue.  If you have coverage everywhere except where your firewall is at (usually in the basement or comm closet where the rest of your gear is at) it appears Sonicwall wants you to deploy another SonicPoint right next to the firewall.    The person with commonsence would normally think -- no, I won't have to spend more money with a SonicPoint, I'll just get a SonicWall 215W that way I have a internet presesnce in my comm closet and with my SonicPoints.   This according to Dell is wrong.   So for any of you who think that you will have a seemless integration for SonicPoints with your existing SonicWall that has integrated wireless, your in for some surprises. (IDEA --->) Now why didn't Sonicwall integrate the same technology within their firewalls as they do the SonicPoints?  (Internal SonicPoint in otherwords)  Then IF I had a TZ215W and I wanted to deploy or extend my range with more SonicPoints, then I wouldn't have a gap or transfer of coverage between devices. There is nothing more frustrated than committing to a model and then you find out later, "Well, that's not exactly going to work well.   If you wanted to go wireless, you should have just bought a standard firewall and then installed SonicPoints."   What is says to me is -- if you out grow your existing TZ215W, Sonicwall will want to you purchase another model and then deploy your SonicPoints.   What??  I already have wireless, why would I want to move to a standard TZ215 just because I have a need to now deploy SonicPoints?  What does everyone else know, hear or see about this?   Was this Dell rep right on or are there flaws in what he said? This paints a dark picture which makes people begin to think this was a deliberate move by Sonicwall to generate more profit, rather than put together a well integrated solution.  Yes, that's an assumption, but in either case the Dell customer ends up holding the bag. --LANMAN
