For Sale – REDUCED – Apple Magic Trackpad 2, Magic Mouse 2, AirPort Extreme & Twelve South Magic Wand

Like others, I’m having an Apple clear out to make way for my recent purchases on here

I’ve tried to get on with both but have given up, the mouse especially but I’ve just recently bought a Logitech MX Master 2S mouse which does all I need. No remaining warranty, box or lightning cable with either.

Magic Trackpad 2 – Perfect condition on the top and all ends. On the rear are a couple of marks. One is a single faint scratch towards the top but no matter what I do, I cant capture it. The other is as shown. Obviously neither affect use and aren’t seen anyway! Works perfectly.

Magic Mouse 2 – This is in perfect condition and works perfectly.

Both will come fully charged and will be securely packaged. I’ve used/mislaid the lightning cables so I’m sure you’ll have your own for recharging.

Will consider offers/deals for combinations…

Cheers!

Price and currency: £75, £50, £83 & £23
Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
Payment method: PPG, BT or cash on collection if you’re local

Microsoft and Sunseap sign agreement on largest-ever solar project in Singapore

Microsoft purchases 100 percent of the renewable output from new 60MW solar project, supports development of new solar projects and greening of Singapore’s grid.

SINGAPORE — March 1, 2018 — Microsoft Corp. on Thursday announced a new agreement with Sunseap Group that marks Microsoft’s first clean energy deal in Asia and will create the single-largest solar energy portfolio in Singapore to date.

This 60 megawatt-peak (MWp) solar portfolio will span hundreds of rooftops across the nation. This is the largest rooftop solar project in Singapore and the first rooftop solar portfolio in the country focused on serving datacenter energy consumption.

“Our cloud services are helping to power Singapore’s digital transformation, and today’s agreement will ensure that transformation is increasingly powered by clean energy,” said Kevin Wo, managing director, Microsoft Singapore. “We’re proud to work with Sunseap, the leading solar provider in Singapore, to support the growth of the local clean energy economy. With the agreement, Microsoft will improve the sustainability of our local operations and make important progress toward our corporate sustainability goals for datacenters.”

The investment in local solar energy builds on decades of Microsoft investment in Singapore and throughout the APAC region. Microsoft began operations in Singapore in 1990, and now has over 850 employees. Singapore is also home to Microsoft datacenter services that deliver Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and numerous other cloud services for customers.

Lawrence Wu, co-founder and director of Sunseap, said, “Sunseap is pleased to work with Microsoft on this landmark solar project. We see exciting potential in our partnership with Microsoft to raise awareness within the tech industry of the importance of adopting renewable energy solutions. Their investment in Singapore solar indicates a growing momentum for clean energy in the country and will further the positive ripple effect for organizations in Singapore to incorporate sustainability practices in their businesses.”

Through a 20-year agreement, Microsoft will purchase 100 percent of the renewable energy attributes to the grid. This landmark agreement also marks progress for Singapore in the renewables sector.

Gian Yi-Hsen, executive director, Cleantech, Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), commented, “This landmark agreement marks yet another milestone in Singapore’s journey to grow the clean energy industry. We are seeing a distinctive trend of local and foreign companies using up to 100 percent renewable energy to power their business operations, and Singapore is positioning itself to serve that need. EDB welcomes this latest agreement between Microsoft and Sunseap, which will help proliferate adoption of clean energy, and spur further innovation in new business models and technologies.”

The agreement also solidifies Sunseap’s unique position in the energy markets. Dominic Garetto, Sunseap’s vice president of Corporate Origination and Development based in California, added, “This contract, focused on serving Microsoft’s datacenter operations, highlights how environmentally responsible energy buyers can lead Singapore’s evolution as a global technology hub while fulfilling their sustainability goals. Microsoft also serves as a role model more broadly for leading corporate buyers pursuing clean energy strategies in Asia, and their support on this project inspires our work in Singapore and our operations throughout Asia as we now collaborate with our clients in multiple countries across the region.”

“This deal is Microsoft’s first renewable energy deal in Asia, and is our third international clean energy announcement, following two wind deals announced in Ireland and The Netherlands in 2017,” said Christian Belady, general manager, Cloud Infrastructure Strategy and Architecture, Microsoft. “We’re on track to exceed our goal of powering 50 percent of our global datacenter load with renewable energy this year. Once operational, the new solar project will bring Microsoft’s total global direct procurement in renewable energy projects to 860 megawatts.”

Snag a better software service contract with these tactics

are ways to knock the price down.

If your organization purchases all its software licenses through the vendor that made the software, then the support options are somewhat limited. Software vendors might have one or two — possibly even three — support options, but there isn’t usually a way to negotiate a custom support plan when you buy direct.

This isn’t to say the business should not try to get better terms, but software vendors do not typically negotiate on the types of support. Hence, the only avenue for compromise is on price.

Understand where you have leverage

Negotiating the price of a support and software service contract is a common practice. Few enterprise software vendors list license or support prices because the cost is typically based on the number of licenses to be purchased. Support costs are usually figured into the sales quote.

When purchasing software directly from the software vendor — and the vendor does not publicly disclose pricing — then there is room to haggle. Never take the vendor’s first quote. Much like dealing with a car salesperson, it’s almost always possible to get a better price if you push for it.

The software vendor’s goal is to make money. The more it stands to get, the better your position is to work a less costly deal. Suppose you get a quote for three licenses, plus one year of service. It might be possible to talk the price down a little bit, but the vendor has no motivation to give a price break on such a small order. But, on an order for 3,000 licenses, the vendor stands to make a lot of money and will most likely make accommodations to get your business.

Some wiggle room with small orders

What can you do to negotiate the cost of a software service contract on a relatively minor order?

Try asking the vendor to throw in the service contract for free; explain that the small number of licenses means you won’t tie up their phone lines. You might also add that you will probably never use the support, but your boss insists that you have an agreement as a safety net.

You could say that the service cost pushes the software beyond your budget, and that, without a more favorable agreement, you will have no choice but to find a less expensive — possibly open source — product.

You still aren’t likely to get a free support agreement, but if the vendor understands the deal hinges on the support contract, then they will probably give a discount at the very least.

Get a break with an advance purchase

Another way to negotiate on the service contract is to purchase multiple years of support. If the company plans to use the software for an extended period of time, then it would probably pay for a support contract each year anyway. Why not pay for three to five years of support up front in exchange for a deeply discounted price?

If you purchase software from a value-added reseller rather than the software vendor, then these techniques might still be viable. You may be able to negotiate the scope of the service contract.

For example, one company I worked for had an agreement with a reseller that the company would purchase all software through the reseller — that included OS licenses, application licenses and everything else — but expected 24/7, on-site technical support for that software. This service contract was expensive, but the company lowered the price by agreeing to handle Tier I support events internally. The company’s IT staff — many who had various IT certifications — would handle whatever support incidents they could. For issues that proved more troublesome, the company would call the reseller for support.

Even with primary support handled by the organization’s IT staff, the support agreement was still expensive. The most important thing this organization did was keep careful records of all support incidents. When it was time to renegotiate the support contract at the end of the first year, the company used those reports to show it had only asked for support on a certain number of occasions. Those records gave the company leverage to get a better price than it had paid for the previous year’s support contract.
