on: July 9, 2009, 4:30 am
Cisco has launched a new writing contest called 'Lifestyles
of the Tech Frustrated', which will run until August 16, 2009, which
asks customers of home networking products to submit a 500 word story
of their experiences in setting up and managing a home network.
Cisco is asking users to share their networking nightmare stories and how they solved their
problems using Network Magic software or other
networking solutions. The top 10 entries as deemed by a panel of judges will win a
Flip Mino HD Camcorder valued at $229.99*.
Cisco is inviting entries to tell their stories which depict the challenges and
advantages of home networking. Cisco wants to hear about what customers are using
home networking for and what they accomplish in their lives through technology.
To enter the contest, participants can log on to the Lifestyles of the Tech
Frustrated home page and fill out the
registration form. The contest is open from July 2 to August 16, 2009 to all legal
residents of the United States and the District of Columbia who are at least 18
years of age.
Cisco Network Magic is a home and home office network management software solution
which provides software tools to help users set up a home network without the
associated hassles of the task. The software programme helps enable users to connect
up their devices such as routers, PCs, printers, media hubs, media adapters and
internet cameras. Users can also control access to the internet and track online
activity to ensure no users are abusing their privileges.
Network Magic also protects networks with enhanced WPA security capabilities and
status alerts to block intruders and warn of any attempts from unauthorised sources.
Network Magic can also help to repair network and Internet connections to keep
everything running smoothly and optimize productivity.
