For parents across the nation, the headaches have begun. Sales of the Xbox One were over a million consoles within the first 24 hours of its launch last week! So it would appear that we’ve found one of the must-have Christmas products.

Isn’t it always something that we just must rush to buy? Yes, of course, being in business, I understand the need to raise awareness and promote our goods; Comms Express would not last long in business if we did not. Yet, every year, I am always amazed by the hype that surrounds the must-have product or toy.

The other huge factor, of course, is the incredible cost of Christmas nowadays. Yes, dear reader I may well be showing my age but gone are the days that a sense of happiness is spread with the odd tangerine and apple and one toy!

Permit us to speak a little about APC, (American Power Conversion) by Schneider Electric. We have been working with APC for some nine years, and in that time we know our clients have been delighted that APC has eradicated any stresses with their protection against downtime, data loss and hardware damage.  A global leader in critical power and cooling services, providing industry leading product, software and systems for home, office, data centre and factory floor applications. They have set the standard with their solutions in network-critical physical infrastructure.

So it is with great delight that we have partnered with APC to offer you a chance to win with us! I love the collective community spirit (literally) you can feel in the air, it’s certainly a great present we can all unwrap! I raise a glass to you all and good luck!

Until next time…
