ARN's Reseller Lounge received rave reviews at last week's PC IT 98 show in Sydney with plenty of positive feedback from vendors, distributors and resellers alike.
The dealer and reseller signs distributed to many stands at the show proved valuable customer generators, while the response to ARN's daily news subscription and ticker promotion far exceeded our expectations.
Still on the show, ARN would like to give special thanks to Digital who supplied the Reseller Lounge with three PC 3000 desktops for our virtual office.
To the gossip. ARN can reveal that the mysterious buyer of 1World Systems is New Zealand-based Brocker Investments, which, coincidentally, also owns Sealcorp, one of the distributors mooted as possible 1World buyers.
On the subject of 1World, ARN's fly- on-the-wall has also heard that remote networking player Ascend has decided to pull up its stake with Express Data and confirm 1World as the vendor's exclusive distributor.
