Windows 8 Pro Upgrade Upgrades from: Windows 7 (keeps woftware programs; Windows settings; personal files) Windows Vista (keeps Windows settings; personal files) Windows XP (keeps personal files only) Windows has been reimagined to focus on your life. The beautiful, fast, and fluid design is perfect for a range of hardware: from compact, touch-enabled tablets and lightweight laptops, to PCs and large, powerful all-in-ones with high-definition screens. It’s smooth, intuitive, and gives you instant access to your people, apps, and stuff, so you spend less time searching and more time doing. Behind the new look of Windows 8 is the rock-solid foundation you’ve come to expect from Windows 7. Immerse yourself in the exciting features of a new generation of PCs while enjoying the full power of Windows. In addition to the new look of the Start screen, Windows 8 incorporates the desktop that you’re familiar with. Think of the desktop as one of the many apps you can run in Windows 8. In the desktop, you’ll see all the settings, devices, and features you used in Windows 7—and you can run the desktop apps you ran in Windows 7, too. Windows 8 is also reimagined to support different working styles. It’s more intuitive so you can find what you need faster and easier. The new look of Windows and the new app model make it easier for businesses to create their own line-of-business apps to help improve productivity. Windows 8 improves on Windows 7 fundamentals like speed, reliability, security, and other essentials that are important to IT administrators. And it works seamlessly with an existing Windows management infrastructure.
control4.com Join us on a tour of a Control4 home automation system in McKinney, Texas. Control4 dealer Byron Baird of Diem Digital Interiors & homeowner Jeff Layn provide a home automation demo of Jeff’s townhouse located on a golf resort called Craig Ranch. Jeff’s smart home technology controls multiple zones of audio, multiple televisions with DVRs for every family member, fireplaces, ceiling fans, thermostats, & IP cameras. He started small and has been adding on to the system over time. What’s great about this Dallas palace are the endless custom touches. When Jeff arrives home and opens the garage door, his home control system turns on the lights & the television turns on to his favorite channel (ESPN). Jeff also has a personalized microchip key chain that has his personal settings programmed into it. He waves it over the ‘wand’ behind the door which then brings up his personal settings of how he wants to live his life when he comes in the house.
