HP ‘Sound Of Touch’ Windows 8 Launch Party in NYC!

Windows 8 has launched with a splash, and HP celebrated the much anticipated debut of the new operating system last night by throwing a private party on October 24, 2012 at Terminal 5 in New York City, highlighted by the groundbreaking and critically acclaimed hip-hop electronic group from Los Angeles: Far East Movement. The excitement was palpable as soon as guests entered the venue, with HP themed blue lighting effects splayed across the walls as digital lightshows danced across the ceiling to the beat of the DJ spinning tunes throughout the acoustically excellent Terminal 5.

Cisco’s annual partner marketing conference, Partner Velocity, wrapped up in Las Vegas in February 2012. Two hundred and thirty-five partners from 24 countries were in attendance to witness Cisco’s recently appointed VP of global partner marketing, Amanda Jobbins, sing her heart out during the closing ceremony.
