26 Frid a y, Ja n u a ry 1 0 , 2 0 1 4 MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH VXI CORPORATION AT CES 2014 VXi Corporation (www.VxiCorp.com) announces that it is taking appointments for the 2014 International CES at its Executive Suite in the Las Vegas Hotel. The company has reserved Suite 4103 at the Las Vegas Hotel for these meetings. It is a rare opportunity for VXi's channel partners to get a "sneak peek" at VXi's new line of Bluetooth® products for mobile professionals – including headsets, speakerphones and more. VXi's Bluetooth solutions are highly regarded for their industry-leading noise canceling and clear, natural sound quality. The company will also be showing their complete Unified Communications, Contact Center and Office lines. Highlights will include the all-new V150 Wireless Headset System with the EHS Electronic Hook Switch, which lets users handle the call from anywhere in their office, and the debut of the plug-and-play Envoy UC headset, designed to help make the most of every UC interaction, no matter the medium. "CES has been a proving ground for product innovations and breakthroughs for 40 years, said Mike Ferguson, President and CEO of VXi. MAGICJACK MAKES THE CALL TO DISTRIBUTORS AND AGENTS In conjunction with a brand and advertising campaign that challenges consumers and retailers to "Do the Math," magicJack is also changing how customers can purchase the award-winning low-cost phone line replacement solution. magicJack has historically been sold directly via online and big box retail. The product is now in its third generation, and magicJack's new advertising campaign highlights its simplicity and ease-of-use. This allows magicJack to be sold practically anywhere, with little to no instruction required by the user. Just hook it up to any high speed broadband internet connection and a land line phone to start calling and saving. The new magicJack PLUS is just $49.95, and includes six months of free service, after which service costs only $29.95 per year. That comes out to just $2.50 per month, an amazingly low price that can be reduced even more to $1.66 per month by signing up for 5 years. There are no contracts, and customers can keep their existing phone number. This creates a tremendous opportunity for wholesale distributors and master agents to capitalize on magicJack's affordable, high-quality Voice over IP (VoIP) phone service for homes and small businesses. Since magicJack can be used for calls to or from anywhere in the world, the company is looking for domestic and international distribution channels and partners that can help drive FULFILL NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS WITH POLAR FITNESS New Year's resolutions equal packed gyms and renewed commitments to burn calories and get fit, but a lack of motivation can get the best of many returning gym-goers. To maintain motivation, anyone who's really resolute should focus on reaching daily activity goals and using heart rate training to get the most out of every workout. Heart rate training is the true measure of exercise intensity, which enables people to get in the "zone" that's most effective for their goals, such as running a 5K race or losing 10 pounds. Polar, the leader in heart rate moni- toring and fitness assessment technology, offers a variety of products to support every health and fitness goal. Resolutions are often lofty goals that must be reached over time, but they are comprised of the decisions people make each day. For those looking to rethink their day in the New Year, the Polar Loop activity tracker motivates users to reach and exceed daily steps taken, calories burned and activity goals. Polar Loop, the first 24/7 waterproof and heart-rate compatible activity tracker, gives users the power to track movement and activity all day, whether at the gym or around STERN REINTRODUCES THE PIN At CES 2013, Stern Pinball impressed attendees with the Pin™ – a stylish, affordable and entertaining pinball game designed and engineered exclusively for the home.
