Computer Corner - Carole Petranovich, honors Governor Richardson for Establishing Back to School Tax Holiday

March 31, 2006 - Albuquerque, New Mexico

Carole Petranovich, President of Computer Corner, spoke in honor of Governor Richardson's Press Conference on Thursday, August 4th, where he announced the 1st annual Gross Receipt's Tax Holiday. Thanking the Governor on behalf of local businesses, Petranovich noted that this "Back to School Tax Holiday" will provide an uplift to the economy, when buyers might normally buy on-line or go across state borders to participate in other state's tax holidays, they will now be encouraged to buy locally and support the state's economy. Saving families money on their computer supplies and other essentials is not limited to back-to-school buyers. Anyone can participate, as long as guidelines are met. Computer Corner is definitely participating and giving exemptions on gross receipts tax, per the Taxation and Revenue's guidelines. In fact, many people are pre-ordering, to avoid long lines, and will be coming in to pay for their order and pick it up on one of the tax exempt days. Per the Tax & Rev Dept, you may pick up products AFTER the tax holiday, as long as you pay for them during the tax holiday. Phone orders are acceptable.

There are, however, some misunderstandings about what products are tax exempt. Not everything Is exempt, only items that are considered standard, back-to-school items.

MEDIA OPEN HOUSE AT: COMPUTER CORNER

4700 SAN MATEO, NE - Albuquerque, New Mexico
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 21ST, 10 A.M. TO 2 P.M.

Computer Corner Debuts Own Brand of Equus MegaMedia Centers Ultimate New Techno-Gadget Combines Functions of Personal Computer With TV, TiVo, DVD, VCR and Radio "In a Breadbox"

Carole Petranovich, owner of Computer Corner, is inviting the news media to view a demonstration of the company's new Equus brand MegaMedia Center, which is a total convergence of the PC with an entertainment and media center for the living room, on Tuesday, December 21st from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at 4700 San Mateo, Northeast.

Truly the ultimate in "techno-gadgets," the system combines the functions of the personal computer with TV, TiVo, DVD, VCR and radio receiver in a system that "is not much larger than a breadbox." It uses Microsoft's Windows Media Center 2005 platform and comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse.

(Equus is a brand name that Computer Corner originally trademarked in 1989 for computer systems that it built in-house and sold to the public. MegaMedia is also a long-standing Computer Corner trademark.)

"I haven't been this excited about new technology since 1991, when the introduction of the CD ROM drive and Multi-Media allowed us have music and more exciting, interactive graphics on the PC," Ms. Petranovich said. "The Equus MegaMedia Center is perfect for anyone who loves music, videos, sports and gaming, because it consolidates all entertainment systems into one package. Because it has a Windows environment, it's easy to visually understand and operate, and you only need to use one remote control device for everything, except your TV.

"For example, the system will copy, digitize, label and store your favorite TV shows and movies on a hard drive or DVD. It can go out to the Internet and capture information about the casts, the plots, the categories - and even the illustrations from the VHS cover - and store that information in a database. Once on the Internet, the system can also access a "real-time," up-to-the-minute, online TV Guide. As a result, you'll no longer need your VCR, your TiVo, or your TiVo subscription.

"The system can also copy and clean up music recordings, including the background noises, hisses and pops on old vinyl records. As with video, it can go out to the Internet to match the songs, artists and categories, and save that information to a database, too," Ms. Petranovich added.

Ms. Petranovich also pointed to additional features, which make it possible to:

  • Download and edit video and family movies recorded on your Video Camera, using the firewire or USB ports on the front, and add audio commentary from the microphone interface.
  • Download pictures from your Digital Camera, using the USB ports on the front.
  • Listen to all local AM or FM radio stations.
  • Pick up and answer email and surf the web.
  • Perform all other traditional computer functions.
  • Play high-end video games, including interfacing to X-Box.
  • Output images to any TV, computer monitor, plasma, LCD screen or LCD Projector.
  • Interface with standard, digital surround-sound systems.
  • Expand the system to run in multiple rooms on a wireless network.

Petranovich said that nationally known companies such as Gateway are marketing PCs with similar functions, but none look like, or are customized with functions like, the Equus MegaMedia Center living room multi-media centers. In addition, Computer Corner's personnel will pre-program the system to receive all local radio stations, configure it to output to a customer's preferred screen or monitor, install and configure to utilize any of the clients existing equipment and provide user training.

The Equus MegaMedia system is configured with a 200Gb Hard Drive and 1Gb of Memory, along with a Dual-Layer DVD Drive/Burner and TV-Tuner.

The MegaMedia Center retails for $1,399.99. Professional installation, training and display, are sold separately.
