With February 10 fast approaching, new beginnings are upon us once again. While some see the Chinese New Year as a chance to reunite with family and friends, others see it as an opportunity to set new goals for the coming year. Whatever the reason behind their personal celebrations, people look forward to the Chinese New Year with hopes of change, good luck and prosperity.
In light of the upcoming Chinese New Year, leading technology provider Intel Philippines shares a list of resolutions sure to make the Year of the Water Snake memorable and exciting.
Keep in touch with family
According to tradition, the New Year marks a fulfilling end to a year’s worth of harvest, and gives farmers a chance to spend quality time with family members after a year of hard work. Celebrate the coming New Year with friends and family, and keep connections close with loved ones abroad with the Intel-inspired Ultrabook.
A sleek, portable and powerful laptop and tablet in one device, the Ultrabook gives you a secure and responsive computing experience from start to standby. Built with Intel Smart Connect technology, the Ultrabook continually updates your emails and social networks, and allows you to get in touch with the people you love whenever and wherever you want.
There is nothing quite like the fulfillment of learning a new language, and learning Chinese in particular has many advantages. Not only do you immerse yourself in a different culture, but you also learn to communicate with nearly a quarter of the world’s population.
For those who are too busy to work in regular Chinese lessons into their schedule, fear not. Intel AppUp, the online destination for the apps you want and need, offers a variety of language tutorials that are available at your fingertips. Prescreened for greater security and categorized so they are easy to find, your new apps can be used on up to 5 different PC devices, including your Ultrabook.
Most if not all resolutions lists encourage people to travel. Well, there’s a reason behind that. More often than not, people, especially those who work very hard, forget how inspiring and refreshing travelling can be. Taking a weekend off to enjoy the temples in Taipei or the terracotta army in Xian will do more for your soul and add to your wealth in experience.
Go see the world and take your memories home with you this year with the Intel Ultrabook. More than its sleek and compact design, the device is thin enough to put in a carry-on bag and light enough to bring in a purse. Equipped with stunning visual technology and graphics, the Ultrabook works as a digital photo and video album that stores the candid moments you capture with your smartphone and camera. You can also share your favorite moments with friends and family online with the Ultrabook’s fast built-in photo editing and easy video creation programs.
Start a new business
2013 is the Year of the Water Snake and symbolizes strong business prospects. Tradition follows that the element of water associates well with wealth, money and business, and the sign of the snake is characterized by intelligence, intuitiveness and persistence.
Start fresh and manage a new business venture with Intel’s Small Business Advantage (SBA), a new computing platform for small businesses without a managed network. The Ultrabook is equipped with Intel SBA, and offers IT support and security that consistently monitors your security software, backs up your company’s data, and manages routine maintenance tasks at a time that’s convenient for you and your employees.
